Chronicles of Time:  Book 3
Chronicles of Time: Book 3
Price: 2.05

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Conclusion, 21 Jun 2014
Great Conclusion

This one takes you back to the time of Christ when Mary is pregnant with our Lord. Terrific story and it shouldn 't upset Christians. Rick and his girls are on the journey to save mankind from Bignose, the villain.

The writing and editing is solid and consistent with the earlier volumes. Good Young Aduklt fiction that adults will enjoy too. I wonder if the author will explore other avenues with this series. But it has a solid conclusion. A worthwhile read and good gift for your teenager.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Rate Thriller, 5 Jun 2014
This review is from: Dexxman (Kindle Edition)
Dexxman is a first rate Grade A thriller from start to finish.

Jacobs writes in a lean terse style like MIckey Spillane or Robert Ludlum. His protagonist is a unique character in that he is a 75-year-old "old goat" who lusts after young babes and surprisingly they lust after him. I guess experience counts.

I really enjoyed the story which involves the British Home Secretary and his family. This novel is well plotted and tightly written which grabs the reader at the start and keeps you turning the pages. I must say that for KIndle currently it is an excellent buy for a thriller. The book is also pretty clean, well edited with only three or four errors that I spotted. One of the more pollshed self published novels I've read and a good promoter for Indie fiction at its best.

Plenty of action and plot twists with an ending that will surprise you. It did me. I didn't see it coming.

I highly recommend this book for thriller/mystery lovers. A worthy 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Political Thriller, 9 May 2014
This review is from: Deadline (Kindle Edition)
This is a good political thriller exploring the intrigues of Ottawa politics. A worthwhile read.

Although the author stole the title of my first novel (I'll forgive him). It is a very different story focusing more on the political world in Ottawa and how journalists dig out the stories. The author writes from experience as a former parliamentary correspondent.

The plot is good, so is the dialogue, the sex scenes a bit awkward and don't add much to the novel. But overall I liked it. The price for this KIndle may be a bit high for some people compared to the many better deals out there. But that s the author's prerogative to charge what he feels it is worth.but may deter some sales though.

Overall a good competent thriller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Medical Drama Compelling Read, 19 Feb 2014
An excellent medical drama about the rise and fall of a successful neurosurgeon.

Dr. Danny Tilson, risks everything when he has an affair with the alluring Rachel who proves to be bad news. A typical example of a man thinking with other than his mind.

Dr. Barbara Ebel has written a compelling novel which keeps the reader turning the pages. It starts out a little slower than I would like as she introduces her characters and storyline. I think she should have got into the meat of the story a bit quicker to really hook the reader, but that is a minor quibble.

The medical accuracy of the facts embedded in the story is excellent and one learns a lot about neurosurgeryy and the workings of a major hospital. The setting is in Nashville, Tennessee which adds some real flavor.

Overall a highly enjoyable read and I look forward to the sequel. The price is also right and a good deal for the reader.

I would highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Class Thriller, 16 Dec 2013
This review is from: The 22nd Secret (Kindle Edition)
A compelling page turner. This thriller takes you to Alaska and the frozen north with a plane crash and mysterious circumstances.

A very detailed and intricate plot with plenty of action combined with a romantic love story makes it a perfect read for both men and women. Really enjoyed this story of the selling of nuclear secrets to the Chinese. But not all is what it appears to be.

Mr. Lanser has crafted a first class thriller and I look forward to the sequel.


Christmas Mall Follies
Christmas Mall Follies
Price: 2.05

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Christmas Read, 14 Dec 2013
What an absolutely funny book to read for Christmas.

I really enjoyed this short little book and its tales of the perils of Christmas mall shopping. I fully concur since I hate shopping and malls with a passion. Get in, get what you want and get out. That's my motto.

Pat Hester writes with a flair that keeps the reader interested and turning the pages. My only complaint was that it was over too soon. Really loved the pieces on Black Friday shopping, the ten foot Christmas tree, and most of the other stories.

Very well done and a perfect Christmas read.

A terrific Jack Reacher novel. One of Lee Child's best.
Plenty of action, killing and suspense. It's Jack against a family of bullies and child molesters. Really enjoyed this one.


Goodbye Junie Moon
Goodbye Junie Moon
Price: 3.33

5.0 out of 5 stars A Powerful Memoir, 30 Nov 2013
Having read and enjoyed June Collins's second book JUNIE MOON RISING, I just had to read this first one and it is even better.

A wild and rivetting tale of her escapades in Vietnam as a dancer. This woman has packed a lot in her life and her true courage comes through in the recounting of how she turned whistleblower on corruption in the army by club segrenats who were taking kickbacks, They were profiting from the war while young soldiers were dying and getting injured fighting for their country. Junie's life was at risk as she exposed and testified against these corrupt scumbags.

Parallel to the Vietnam story is one about her upbringing and early marriage in her native Australia where she suffered countless heartbreaks and miscarriages.

Her opening chapter with a graphic sex scene is a rather risky move because it might turn off some readers. Didn't bother me, but I could see some more narrow minded readers tossing it aside. But it would be their loss.

Bottom line here is that this is the story of a true heroine and a woman who chose to live her life on her terms. I admire her courage and tenacity in dealing with the many challenges she faced. No wilting violet is Junie Moon. A strong woman not afraid to stand up for what she believes.

This is a powerful memoir which is well written and apart from a few very minor editing errors, a very good read. Highly recommended.

Another great page-turning thriller from James Siegel. As good as DERAILED and DECEIT. A couple goes to adopt a baby in Colombia and they all get kidnapped. Their lives turned upside down. Highly recommended. I plan to check out his fourth book EPITAPH. But it is sad that he has not written another book since 2006. Get back writing Mr. Siegel.

Legend of an Iron Tower and Other Fables...
Price: 0.77

4.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and Touching, 2 Nov 2013
This book of 17 original stories deals with dreams and losses, pride and forgiveness, fear and sacrifice, misery and hope. Eight of the stories were first published in the author's prize-winning 2007 book, íè óñò볻 ("Chronicles of a Desert"), in the original Ukrainian.

"The road of life can only reveal itself as it is traveled; each turn in the road reveals a surprise. Man's future is hidden." Anonymous

Natalia Dobzhanskas words speak to these times, to times of pain and times of love, and an overweening hope for redemption. Her words are filled with the horror and beauty and loss of her Ukranian homeland. Many of these stories are very moving. The writing is excellent and the translation from Ukrainian superb.

Inspiring and touching words.
