DATING MY VIBRATOR (and other true fiction)
DATING MY VIBRATOR (and other true fiction)
Price: £0.77

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun!, 1 April 2011
Suzanne Tyrpak is a natural story teller, and I was cracking up out loud quite a lot during some of the collection. At the same time, though, the stories are also quite sad, and they're a great insight into the dating game after her divorce. I recognized quite a few traits of the men she dates, and they're pretty scary!

Dating My Vibrator is a roller-coaster of emotions, and a bare-all (not literally!) book that women and (hopefully!) men can relate to. If you're looking for a fun read, you've got to check this out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dramatic story of family relationships, 28 Mar 2011
This review is from: In Search of Lucy (Kindle Edition)
This is a journey of discovery for Lucy to try and climb out of a pit of despair and self-hatred that was fuelled by a damaging relationship with her mother. In saving her sister's life, Lucy finally has the strength to repair her own fragile life, and she recognizes the opportunity to love again.

This was a story of how family relationships can affect the delicate balance of our lives. I could totally relate to Lucy and was rooting for her all the way. It was a great read that pulled me in from page one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sweet romance, 23 Mar 2011
Lauren's divorce sparks off more than she bargains for. All she wants is her husband, Greg's, signature on the divorce papers, and when the judge grants her wish, along with an old barn, she discovers a clapped out merry-go-round that is pushing her and Greg back together.

Lauren is feisty and thinks she knows what she wants from life, but it takes the divorce and the merry-go-round to make her really think about her life.

The Merry-Go-Round was a really sweet romance that was well written, pulling me in from the first page. If you're looking for a light-hearted, easy-to-read romance, this will be right up your street.


The Crown Conspiracy (The Riyria Revelations)
The Crown Conspiracy (The Riyria Revelations)

5.0 out of 5 stars An action-packed fantasy, 21 Mar 2011
I don't normally read historical fantasy - it's not one of my favourite genres at all, but this book has just proved me wrong!

Thieves, Royce and Hadrian, unwittingly end up in a conspiracy to overthrow the King. Only their skills can prevent the death of Prince Alric and restore the kingdom to order.

This was a magical tale of wizards, historical settings, evil villains, and edge-of-your-seat adventure. There's just enough historical fantasy description to transport you back in time, but not too much to bore the non-fantasy reader.

I was hooked from page one and can't wait to read the rest of the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Page-turning thriller, 16 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There's a lot going on here to grab your attention. It's a roller-coaster ride of murder, rape, terrorism, and kidnap. Just when you think things can't get any worse...they do! This is a thriller in the same style as Prime Suspect. A dizzy plot and page-turning read will keep you satisfied until the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful Sci-fi thriller, 10 Mar 2011
This isn't the kind of genre I'd normally read, so I didn't really know what to expect. What I found was a suspenseful sci-fi thriller that packs in UFOs, espionage, twists and turns galore, history, and anticpation as to what mysterious things really are lurking at the bottom of the ocean, and who wants to cover it up.

It was well-written, and although some readers have said the description is too detailed, as a reader who wasn't aware of some of the technical details involved in this story, it actually helped me grasp the concept better.

If you're looking for a novel that is mysterious and thought-provoking, then look no further than Falling Star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! A chillingly gripping thriller, 8 Mar 2011
This review is from: The Summoner (Kindle Edition)
Wow! The Summoner is a chilling thriller - full of suspense, intrigue, and action. Eloquent descriptions and vivid images give you the feeling you're actually in Zimbabwe. You can taste and smell the country clearly. The writing was engaging from the first page.

I'm interested in Voodoo and the African version of Juju, which is the main premise for this novel, so I found it enthralling and couldn't put it down. If you're looking for a gripping read, you should definitely check this one out. I can't wait to read the next one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky Murder Mystery, 27 Feb 2011
I don't normally read short stories so it was nice to get into something a bit different.

Emily is still depressed from the death of her dog, and when she's invited to a Halloween party, she thinks it might be what she needs to cheer herself up. The only problem is the party is like a Murder Mystery night with eccentric carnival performers, and Emily finds herself the unwitting witness to a murder. Or did she? Emily has to unravel the circus trick and find the body.

The style of writing reminded me of novels by Thomas H Cook that I love - serious and slightly old fashioned. The descriptions are vivid and unusual.

Three Sisters is an intriguing story. If you like mysteries, it's well worth giving this a read.


The Hate
The Hate
Price: £0.77

5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping tale of revenge, 26 Feb 2011
This review is from: The Hate (Kindle Edition)
What do you do when the court system fails? For one woman it's a case of revenge and justice. When her daughter's killer gets away with murder, she's consumed with passionate hatred and starts a waiting game until she can finally bring him to justice. Her own type of justice.

This was a gripping tale of revenge. It's fast paced, well written, and had me hooked from page one. The bonus story is also a quick, thrilling read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Modern Day Sherlock Homes, 16 Feb 2011
There are two Julius Katz mysteries together in this purchase and both were great reads. Julius is suave and appreciates the finer things in life. He's like a modern day Sherlock Homes, gathering clues that are withheld from the reader until the final revelation of who did what to whom. He has the help of a virtual assistant, Archie, who does the grunt work for him. I thought this was well written, intriguing, and will keep you guessing!
