Passing Through Midnight
Passing Through Midnight

1.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing, 20. Oktober 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Passing Through Midnight (Kindle Edition)
The story itself was a sweet one that I would have enjoyed. However, it was quite ruined for me by the appalling editing (or should I say non-editing).
While I gave Mary McComas' book "Talk Of The Town" an extra star for the perfect editing, I took away 2 stars here. As another reviewer on amazon.com mentioned, this book has apostrophes where they don't belong. Apostrophes can be found throughout the book in the middle of words, e.g. ful'filling, go'ing... At 5 % of the ebook I was already so frustrated that I decided to count each apostrophe as I read on - there were 168. Other editing errors not included.
Really disappointing as I couldn't properly concentrate on the story because every apostrophe made me mad! I'm glad I got this book for 0,00 €.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fabulously entertaining, 4. September 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
I was lucky enough to catch this book in the free download section but would gladly have paid money for it. It's a family story, it's about food & ice cream, relationships, and of course love. Very nicely written, perfectly edited, and it made me want to go to Brighton to see the location where this imaginary shop might be.

Nice story, very likeable characters that you look forward to meeting again in the next book of the series. This book was fun, had a little suspense, lots of family dynamics and was perfectly edited, which always gets an extra star from me. Absolutely recommendable.

I haven't read any Christina Jones books in a long while after not liking some of her very "mystical" books. I absolutely loved this one, though, and couldn't believe it was available for only 0.89€.

The description of English village life is just perfect, the characters very well thought through, and the story line funny, emotional and thoroughly entertaining. Definitely recommendable and worth 5 stars.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sehr empfehlenswert, 28. Juli 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Nach ewig langer Suche fand ich diese WMF Kaffeemaschine - gottseidank. Sie hat einen abnehmbaren Wassertank, der widerum rechts einen Eingriff für die Hand hat, perfekt zum Abnehmen und Wiederaufstecken des Tanks. Die Maschine hat eine Aromataste für geringe Kaffeemengen, das Ergebnis ist hervorragend. Insgesamt ist das Brühergebnis für mich ebenfalls perfekt.
Die Tastenbeleuchtung ist einfach aber praktisch - weiss für "Gerät ist angeschaltet" und grün für "Kaffee ist fertig". Die Maschine schaltet sich automatisch nach 40 Minuten ab, der Kaffee behält dabei seinen Geschmack und wird nicht bitter.
Der Tropfstop funktioniert bestens; anfangs sah es so aus als ob bei der ersten Entnahme der Kanne nach dem Brühvorgang immer 1 Tropfen auf die Wärmplatte fällt, wenn man die Kanne sofort nach Grünschaltung entnimmt, es könnte sich hierbei aber auch um Kondenstropfen auf dem Kannendeckel handeln.
Eigentlich nicht so wichtig, aber in diesem Fall das i-Tüpfelchen: das Gerät sieht auch noch gut aus und ist durch die schmale Form platzsparend. Einzig dass der Kaffeefilter nach rechts ausschwingt war für mich gewöhnungsbedürftig, aber ein Makel ist es keinesfalls.
Diese Maschine ist eine der teureren,aber definitiv ihr Geld wert.

I read the first book in this series, looked forward to this second one, enjoyed it... until the ebook got to 94 % and the story was over - before the ending! The so called ending is a cliffhanger that announces that the story will continue in book 3.
That was really annoying! I would have given the story more stars but the non-ending kind of made me mad!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Nice & recommendable, 7. Mai 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
I downloaded this book for free, going just by the short synopsis. I wasn't disappointed, but it's not a four star book either. I enjoyed both the story and the characters but felt it dragged on a bit at times. It had really good moments but also - as another reviewer said - wishy-washy moments, maybe a tad too many, hence only 3 stars.
It's still a recommendable book that takes you to a nice Southern place for a while, with nice people.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Could have been a nice read, 2. Mai 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
As some other reviewer said - this book has potential, but the downsides outweigh that. The story starts out interesting, then the further I got into the book, the more I speed-read (i.e. I skipped over a lot of text). The good bit: it has romance, a little bit of suspense, a little bit of child-parent-relationship problems, which makes the story more diverse. On the other hand, the hero seems a little bit of a douchebag.Then there's the ending: first there are tons of problems, then suddenly everything's hunky-dory - without the author really telling us how that happened. All of a sudden the son of the enemy tomato grower works for the hero without any further hints how this came about.
With every ebook I read, I pay a lot of attention to editing. What got on my nerves in this book is that an unusual amount of words were hyphenated where no hyphen belongs. E.g. getting-up, whipping-up, giving-up etc.
Luckily I downloaded this book for free and will definitely not read the next two in the series.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good story..., 28. April 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
...that made me want to read book 2 and book 3. The story is interesting, insightful yet not soppy.
However, I only gave 3 stars because of the appaling editing. Grammar errors, commas all over the place (but not where they belong), missing words, additional words that don't belong, spelling errors.
I have to agree with another reviewer who said "Is this a first draft?". Luckily I downloaded this book for free.Another reviewer said "explicit sex scenes" but that is not the case at all!
If you like a good story I can definitely recommend this book. You need to be able to overlook the horrible editing, though.


Talk of the Town
Talk of the Town

5.0 von 5 Sternen Not your average love story, 1. April 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Talk of the Town (Kindle Edition)
It was clear right from the beginning that this was not chick lit, but a proper romance/love story. All characters seemed to be normal/average people who have both feet firmly on the ground (compared to an average chick lit book where the heroine works for a glossy magazine and waits for a rich guy to marry her). These characters had depth and were likeable, you can very likely relate to most of their problems, and you feel like you wouldn't mind living in their little village with them.

A very well edited book, too, which earned it an extra star.
