5.0 out of 5 stars Good idea, 10 Mar 2014

I've downloaded a bunch of these free books. It's a great way to get re-acquainted with artists. A nice way to spend a couple of minutes absorbed in art without access to the museum they are in.

This review is from: Murder Express (Kindle Edition)
I read this book about 3 months ago and it has taken me that long to calm down enough to write a review.
Firstly, I always read reviews and would never buy one without it being a certified decent read. It must've been a free book, because if I paid for that load of codswallop, I will track down Mr Scott and demand a refund.

I travel regularly and take risks that in hindsight aren't always smart. This book has opened my eyes a little as to the evils that could lurk right in front of you and not know it!
The book itself is enjoyable (not sure its right to describe a book like this in such a way). Highly recommended!

If you're after some predictable fluff to read, then this is your book. I read the first few pages and knew the ending. Very much a housewife book, but who doesn't like happy endings?

This review is from: My James (Kindle Edition)
While I did find this book very interesting in parts, I did find that the beginning was a little repetitive. I've no doubt that what Ralph went through was horrific, and I would never want to be in his shoes. But I felt that at times he forgot that he had been given another 4 other gifts (babies) and seemed like none of them could live up to the perfect vision he had built up of James. Though I'm sure James was a little angel in the short time he spent with him.

A realistic love story without the bull. A very enjoyable story. I loved how each story was told separately and then joined together.

I read both books in two days. Couldn't put them down. This focuses on Stacey's life from her teenage years onward.

Couldn't put it down. Had to buy the sequel to find out what happened to Stacey as this book finishes while she is still quite young. Highly recommend

4.0 out of 5 stars Moving story, 24 Feb 2013

I read this book in a day. The story was well written and fast paced. I sympathized with the writer until towards the end, when I couldn't believe she kept believing Damian's lies. That got a bit frustrating, just hearing the same excuses over and over again. In the end, it was still a good book!
