review 1: New author, Destiny Booze, shows real writing potential in her debut novel, Altered Beginnings. The story was interesting from beginning to end, and I was genuinely surprised by some of the twists in the plot. The heroine was interesting and anything but clichéd. I also liked the hero, but I wished his character had been explored a bit more. The only real issue I had with this book was, sadly, an important one. The editing on this book was not what it should have been. Word choice errors aside, I greatly enjoyed Altered Beginnings and am looking forward to reading Ms. Booze’s second novel, Predetermined Endings.
review 2: Well, this is my book. I just had to go ahead and rate it five stars. It goes along with my desire to climb the highest mountain top
