Here's What I Think

I've read several books lately, and here's my opinion of a few of them—and as I always say—it's just my opinion.

Her Cracked Heart
by P.A. Estelle 5 Stars
Title: Charming!

A woman loses her husband and daughter, goes into seclusion, finds another man, and then starts all over again. A typical story that could’ve been boring, but it wasn’t. It was sweet, charming, and drew me right in. I especially liked it when the little girl told Stephanie she had a cracked heart. Can’t wait to read more by P.A. Estelle!

Cold Feet
by Jess Butcher 3 Stars
Title: Good

I enjoyed this story, but I was confused at the end. I felt as if there was a missing paragraph or something that would explain the ending better. Up until then, I loved the tale, but the ending left me shaking my head.

Short Cuts
by Erik Bowman 4 Stars
Title: I liked it!

This collection of short stories was a very good read. The writing is outstanding and kept me glued to the pages. Erik Bowman has a wild, vivid imagination that draws the reader in and doesn’t let go until the very end.

However, there were a few glitches in some of the storylines, but all in all it was well worth the time I spent reading the book. Good work, Erik Bowman!

American Goddesses
by Gary Henry 5 Stars
Title: Brilliant!

I really enjoyed this book. I also love a good comic book, and this story reminded me of one. Super powers and control—who, in the real world, wouldn’t want that?

The writing is excellent, making this book a fun and delightful read. And, I love a happy ending. I highly recommend Gary Henry’s American Goddesses. I didn’t know what to expect, but this book turned out to be a real page-turner. Brilliant! 

Shadow People
by Jo Robinson 5 Stars
Title: Very good!

Fantasy/Sci-fi/Paranormal, this one has it all. It was well written with very good character development, and it held my interest all the way through the book. A heroine who turns into a dynamo is always a good thing. I will be looking for more of Jo Robinson’s books.
