Just My Opinion

I write, but I also love to read. Here are a few books I've read and my opinion of them.

Fosgate’s Game
by David C. Cassidy 5 Stars+
Title: Tops my list for best writing!

The storyline was interesting and I really enjoyed it, but I was most impressed with the author’s writing ability. Mr. Cassidy’s writing was so tight it was as if he chose every single word with great forethought. There were no useless fillers in this tale.

The setting was perfect—a stormy night with two men sitting around playing a game that not only is evil, but deadly. Sounds like a tale straight out of a Stephen King or Dean Koontz book… only the writing was much better.

I believe David Cassidy could write in any genre and have you glued to the pages. His talent is that amazing.

Thanks for such an enjoyable read. I’m ready for the next one!

Deadly Money
by Anthony Kinner 1 Star
Title: Needs a proofreader!

I really wanted to like this book. I met the author a couple of weeks ago, and he’s such a nice guy, but after a few pages, I had to put the book down. I can’t even tell you what the story was about. The writing was awkward, choppy and riddled with spelling and grammar errors.

I overlook a few mistakes, but this was just a mess. Please fix. I gave him one star for effort.

Mouth of the Rat
by Peggy A. Edelheit 5 Stars
Title: Another excellent read!

As usual, Ms. Edelheit does not fail to entertain. I love Samantha Jamison and her kooky friends. Who says little old ladies can’t be fun? I was sucked right in from the start and enjoyed ever twist and turn. Fun, entertaining, and well-written.

Terrific! Can’t wait to read the next one.

The Witch, the Princess and the Dragon
by S.T. Matthias 5 Stars
Title: Very good.

This was a cute, simple fairy tale complete with your typical characters—a princess, dragon, witch, King and Queen, and lots of knights. It was a good read for its target audience.

Closing Costs
By Jess Butcher 4 Stars
Title: Good!

When I think of this story, I have visions of a slicing machine being used to cut up the annoying bad guy. What a way to close a deal. Way to go, Jess Butcher! Can’t wait to check out what else you have for me to read.

**Feel free to tell me what you think. I welcome your opinion.
Happy reading!
