Smashwords book reviews by sandra Bell

  • Pulchritudinous Book 1 on Jan. 13, 2014

    This is the most beautiful children's book I've ever seen (I've seen quite a few). I look forward to the next in the series.
  • A Vampire in the Vatican 'Brotherhood of the Sword' on March 07, 2014

    Didn't take long to get past the background story and the rest was wonderful. Not really spooky but very believable. Inspector Martinelli is a great character, he seems like an ordinary guy which is another thing I liked. He tries to plan ahead but with no knowledge about vampires he does very well. A couple of 'shockers' through the story and it didn't get boring at anytime (I didn't have to 'skip' pages). Great ending that I would never have guessed.
  • That Moment... on March 07, 2014

    This was a recommended book and I admit not reading it for several days but after reading the other reviews I thought I better take the plunge. Finished reading the whole book in the small hours as I couldn't put it down. What a surprise! I laughed, I cried. Did more crying than laughing. Now I understand why incidents happened in my own life. Thank you for showing me the way.
  • Busting God on March 07, 2014

    Great story but I admit having to look up Google maps for the names of places. They really exist. This author brings her characters to life with a great deal of enthusiasm. I enjoyed this story very much from 'down under'.
  • Ruck Nor on March 15, 2015

    Brilliant little story. Lots of mystery and a bit of sci-fi which was good. I would also like to read a continuation. Nice flash fiction.
  • The Prayer Maker on March 15, 2015

    Very good story and nicely written but it did seem to stop abruptly. I enjoyed this read.
  • The Definition of "Class" on March 15, 2015

    That summed it up short and sweet.
  • Ruck Nor 2 on March 24, 2015

    Good to see Craig is taking everything in his stride. Pity they didn't let him have those women but maybe he'll finish up with his guide. ;) This flash story is getting interesting as Craig starts to travel to a different location on the planet. I'm enjoying each instalment but can we have a continuation soon? I want to know what happens.
  • Nun with a Gun on March 24, 2015

    Another wonderful continuation from A Vampire in the Vatican. It was good to see Inspector Martinelli again. I agree the vampire scene is quite funny but serious and I admire the Inspectors courage. He's very clever and how he works everything out is great. The Nazi gold did surprise me and I thought I'd worked it out too but having learnt how this author tells her stories I figured I was wrong, and I was. Sad love story in the past and the end was again terrific. A few pictures did add to the story and the last picture did make me very sad. I'm very pleased to see there will be another book and am really looking forward to reading it when its released.
  • Control on March 24, 2015

    Interesting concept but FAR, FAR too short. I'm sure there's a story here somewhere but we need more to assess it. I did enjoy the little bit that was offered.
  • Perspectives on a Dragon on March 24, 2015

    No Paragraphing! Interesting stories but I found them a bit familiar. I did enjoy how they linked together. (Different perspectives).
  • Pulchritudinous Book 2 on March 24, 2015

    Another beautiful story in the continuation of Pulchritudinous. Gentle story, lovely pictures, this is great. Lessons and friendship are the main theme I think. I hope these books never stop. These are the best childrens books around as I buy quite a few in print and I hope they eventually make it to hardcopy. I can't believe the author is charging so little, there's a lot of work went into these.
  • Screams! on April 12, 2015

    It's funny how things happen. I just signed in to Smashwords to leave a review for another book I'd read when 'Screams' popped up. I left the review I intended and returned to read this. What a great story. I won't give it away as any comment in regard to the storyline would spoil it for another reader. It must be said, when the story is finished, you MUST read on. What follows is invaluable.
  • Beware.....The Moon is Full on April 16, 2015

    If I'd read the other reviews before reading this flash fiction I may have been prepared. This is scary stuff. I love it. Very well written and enjoyable. If I go out at night I think I'll walk down the middle of the road and take my chances with the traffic.
  • The Weekends of Sally Virtue. May & June on May 19, 2015

    OMG! How do her parents cope? Sally gets up to all sorts of thinks, even in church. The spider was very funny, couldn't stop laughing at that one. The Apple? Absolutely hilarious. A visit to grans house? Funny as. The murder? Well I actually understood that one but it was funny the way she told it. Overall a hilarious story all the way.
  • A Reckless Moon on July 13, 2015

    What a lovely story about a vampire. I like this guy even though he is what he is. Nice short piece of writing. Well described.
  • Beware.....The Moon is Full on July 13, 2015

    I thought this was a great little read. A good short horror and the perils of living in the same city as a werewolf. Good job.
  • The Aesinas Codex on Sep. 09, 2015

    Another wonderful Inspector Martinelli story that I enjoyed very much. He's off to Germany again where he is looking for the Aesinas codex. Good to see him working with Wilhelm again and getting himself in a lot of bother this time. I don't want to spoil the story by giving any details but it is a wonderful story from beginning to end. I do recommend this series and haven't been disappointed with any of the books.
