This is a long slow romance that savors the 'build' of a relationship and delivers a 'bang' of suspense.
When the heroine was faced with feeding 12 hungry men in 2 hours with little experience.
She performed the book well. I thought her accent was charming.
An enjoyable suspense romance that would appeal to people who like to think about food. The ending was different from the formula one I thought they would come up with, so it was a nice surprise.
The performer paused so often to for dramatic purposes, that it made the characters come across as haughty and self important. IMO, It felt like she 'spoke down' to the audience.
Mark Twain or Taken
A. The story wasn't that good.
B. It lacked the friendship and family interaction that would have been expected when someone dies or is shot.
C. The Heroine kept switching back and forth from calling her lover her 'brother' and 'boyfriend'. It was creepy as heck. He was her STEP brother, but she never referred to him as such.
D. The mystery 'climax - reveal' at the Texas ranch was ridiculous. It made no sense for these characters to suddenly throw out years of planning and plotting and have a great big 'confession' before the convenient and sudden ending.
Maybe, if the friend loves Star Trek, and has a sense of humor.
No, but the author is unseasoned, and uses the word "SAID" about 5 million times. For instance, there are only two people in a scene, a man and a woman talking quietly. The author inserted the word "SAID" so many times, it drove me to consider turning it into a drinking game, but the threat of alcohol poisoning turned me away from the idea.
Ah, he provides venom and joy and emotions that convey a good performance.
A great book, but it's really several books and universes and weirdness in one novel. I think the author was trying just a bit too much. I think he's talented, but seems new to the writing game, and honestly, this was just a touch too much. The original story was clever and funny, and the characters make this novel spring to life. But the way the narrative changes to become essentially another completely different novel is unnerving.
Eclectic, Oscar Worthy
Any Paranormal, cause the stories all revolve around paranormal creatures.
This man is Oscar Worthy! What a performer! He made the stories leap to life and get up and dance. Wow.
Great book of eclectic short stories. Vampires, Ghouls, Gargoyles, Succubus, and all things paranormal go on vacation. The story about the demon who liked to be a dog because his 'package' was bigger than when he was in man form made me howl with laughter.
A throughly enjoyable book.
