Not as good as I had hoped this would be, I found the reason Max disappeared to be very farfetched, unlikely and unconvincing. His sister who was quite engaging in the previous book was a real pain. I know this was fiction, but it was for me totally unbelievable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great addition to the series! 10 Aug. 2016
By Brenda Telford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
With Roxy Parker’s latest ghostwriting book only just submitted to her publisher, she was looking for a bit of relaxation. Her latest book had had little to inspire her, so she and indeed Oliver, were glad it was finished. But the relaxation wasn’t to last – Caroline, her best friend Max’s sister passed on a message from her and Max’s mother, who was convinced Max was missing. In Berlin for work, Max wasn’t answering calls, texts or even social media posts – Roxy felt a little shiver of anxiety…

As Roxy and Caroline headed from Sydney, Australia to Berlin in search of Max, it started a journey of mystery, intrigue and horror. For on their arrival, it was discovered Max’s flatmate Jake had been violently murdered and Max was nowhere to be seen. Following the trail from the small clues they found, Caroline and Roxy first searched the luxurious Swiss resort on top of Mount Pilatus and then on to the Italian Riviera. The friendly locals, as well as some not so friendly, were willing to help – but the discovery of another body; this time a young woman who had been seen with Max, had Roxy and Caroline as well as the local police very worried.

With their anxiety high, even the beautiful Mediterranean Sea couldn’t take their minds off their search for Max. Roxy couldn’t seem to get her head around what was happening – but she did know they were running out of time. Would they find Max before it was too late? And was it possible he was still alive?

Words Can Kill by Aussie author C.A. Larmer is another excellent episode in the Ghostwriter Mystery series. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed each and every book, travelling with Roxy while she solves the latest crime. Her relationship with Max is always a highlight; Caroline plays her part well and Oliver is – well, Oliver! Words Can Kill was a particularly suspenseful novel, with lots of action and angst – highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Words Can... 25 Mar. 2014
By D. Flagg - Published on Amazon.com

Words can help you to describe a book, like this one. I liked it. Why? Because it is a simple tale with a couple of twists and turns but you always know the real outcome and somehow you don't mind going along for the ride. It is easy to read, not too taxing on the brain. I've enjoyed the other books, I like the characters, so I gave this book a good rating.

I enjoyed the books written by C. A. Larmer. Her characters are very well developed. The plots of the stories are very good. I have purchased several of her books.
5.0 out of 5 stars Lamar's Words Can Entertain 31 Jan. 2015
By Wanda Salyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Interesting story line with plenty of quirks to keep you guessing, believable, but plenty of variety in characters. The author has a knack for naturally sounding dialogue unlike some who seem to write bursts of speeches. The interaction of the two heroins flows believably & the ending leaves you satisfied, yet looking forward to hearing more of Roxy & Max.

I finished reading this story but it was tedious. The dialogue is repetitive and the situations don't advance the story in any way. The resolution isn't exciting or satisfying.
