Fraidy Hole
Fraidy Hole
Preis: EUR 2,68

5.0 von 5 Sternen Exciting right to the end, 18. Dezember 2013
Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Fraidy Hole (Kindle Edition)
I can wholely recommend this book. Until the end I had no idea who the culprit was and you really feel with the detective who can't make progress fast enough. Also, the girl's agony as well as her inventive and strong spirit are very well described.
All the business about the detective's dog Harley could have been left out, though, as he contributes nothing to the story. But that is just a cat-person's by-the-way.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very moving and refreshing, 18. Dezember 2013
Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Patty is very well described, with all her thoughts, doubts, her weaknesses and her struggle with her weight. The same with Sam, who hopes to become a permanent part of Patty's life but is being rebuffed several times.
The ending came a little too fast and too easy but on the whole I can really recommend this book.

I loved the main character and his strong personality. The supernatural stuff could have been left out or cut short but the story was really moving.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The List - A Thriller (Kindle Edition)
Rarely have I read such a brilliant combination of suspense and humor. Between my frequent outbursts of laughter and my retellings of some rather gruesome scenes my boyfriend shook his head more than once over the kind of book I was reading ;)
Definitely read this book - the suspense will not stop until the very end. Neither will the hilarity.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gripping until the very end!, 27. Juli 2013
Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Even though the cover of this book intrigued me, I was not prepared for the ingenuity with which the villain executes his plans. Also, the way the hero and the police follow the leads and close in on the villain is extremely well thought out. At about 40 % of the book they uncover the villain's identity but author actually manages to fill the remaining 60% with a suspenseful plot. Go ahead and read this book, I can wholely recommend it.


A Summer Down Under

2.0 von 5 Sternen You can tell it is her first one, 27. Juli 2013
Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Summer Down Under (Kindle Edition)
In my opinion a succession of standard romance elements like getting caught together in a thunderstorm and the like. The characters stay flat - inside as well and outside. For instance, I could not tell just where Daniel's fascination with Sam stems from. The book served me as a sort of neutralizer between two suspense thrillers but apart from that I cannot recommend it.


Love Me If You Must (Patricia Amble Mystery Book #1)
Love Me If You Must (Patricia Amble Mystery Book #1)
Preis: EUR 0,00

4.0 von 5 Sternen A hilarous heroine and a slightly dissatisfactory end, 7. Juli 2013
Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf(Was ist das?)
The subtle, wry comments of the heroine made me stop short and laugh out loud more than the not-so-subtle akward murder investigataion of the heroine. As we are currently in the process of renovating OUR old house I loved the auther's desciption of the heroine's work in a likewise old residential building.
The suspense builds up steadily but in the end the plot unravels too fast for my taste. Also, the heroine's choice concerning the the two men vying for her attention left me a little disappointed. Well, there would not be many sequels if she had not made this choice, I console myself.

All in all, recommendable for its humor and suspense.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not your average, easily-digestable regency novel, 7. Juli 2013
Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Fairchild (Kindle Edition)
Yes, harldy any regency romance novel can deem itself a contribution to deep, meaningful literature but this novel actually addresses the point of illegitimacy in this time instead of merely mentioning the existence of "love-children" and tells the story from the illegitimate heroine's point of view who comes to join her biological father's family after her own mother's death.

Several aspects of the plot provide interesting points that rouse your curiosilty and make you read closely in order not to miss anything instead of speeding through the book as I have through many of the shallower regency novels.
For instance, the circumstances of the girl's mother's death dare to make you laugh in their absurdity, were it not so sad for the little child.
I was also pleasantly surprised by the absence of stepmother or stepsibling clichés.

All in all, a pleasant read with some surprises which I can wholely recommend.


The Rosary
The Rosary
Preis: EUR 0,00

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of my favorite love stories, 21. Juni 2013
Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Rosary (Kindle Edition)
A handsome artist falls in love with a plain woman of his acquaintance. She loves him back, but does not trust him to be constant in his love since he is known to be a great lover of all things beautiful. First she turns him down, causing a rift between them. Then just when she has made up her mind to take the risk to trust him, she hears that a hunting accident has blinded him permanently...

A brilliant love story. The heroine comes to life on the pages and I let myself get sucked into the story everytime I read the book. The effect usually lasts several days.

2.0 von 5 Sternen The plot has potential but remains flat, 21. Juni 2013
Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Directive 99 (Kindle Edition)
The topic which caught my eye is not nearly touched enough and the plot needs to be fleshed out. The sappy Christianity parts, however, were what ruined the book for me.
