There Was an Old Woman (2013)
3.5 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Despite the ordinary title, this book contains an immersive story. The author leaves enough clues to assist the reader in deducing what is really happening, but she doesn't create a limp mystery by haphazardly throwing hints everywhere. Overall, I really enjoyed this read. You...
Never Tell a Lie (2009)
3.3 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Not sure if it's because I've read too many similar books, but the story line is really, really, predictable. Characters are flat, but I liked Ivy, the main character. The whole story was conveniently spiced up with her pregnancy and the emotional and physical changes that comes ...
1001 Books for Every Mood (2008)
3.71 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Another book of book suggestions divided by categories or moods, complete with synopses for each book. This one has small icons with each title to tell you whether it is an easy or hard read, whether you'll laugh or cry, and stars assigned according to the author's arbitrary "lit...
Come and Find Me (2011)
3.02 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: It's hard for me to believe that this author wrote a book on how to write mysteries when her own are so substandard. If this seems harsh, just let me say that I have tried several of her novels and found them all wanting. This one was actually a bit above the cut--the part about ...
The Bibliophile's Devotional: 365 Days of Literary Classics (2009)
3.6 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: This was just okay. Maybe I’d have enjoyed it more if I’d read one entry a day, rather than reading the book straight through, but I’m not a “passage a day” type reader. Frankly, while the content is very interesting, each entry is only slightly longer than what could be included...
Never tell a lie - Lügen können töten (2010)
3.31 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: After a fantastic start, this novel crashed and burned. Not Ephron's writing style, which I found to be well written and easy to read. Rather, it was the story itself that fell short; the character motivation seemed off (would Melissa really be that motivated in revenge witho...
Angst ist Dein Tod (2012)
3.03 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: I thought this book was great! A reformed computer hacker is the co-owner of a computer security firm. She has become agoraphobic after her lover dies in a mountain climbing accident. She conducts all of her business online using an avatar in a Second Life-like space, and hasn...
