and I cherish every single one I receive.
Unfortunately, Amazon has a nasty habit of “cleaning house” on occasion and wiping out reviews for reasons unknown. They do it to anyone who sells a product on their site, not just writers. But oh, how it hurts. Writers live for their reader’s reviews.
It happened to me recently, and I lost several lovely, thoughtful reviews.
From now on, I’m saving my reviews here.
Even the ones that panned my books.
And if Amazon does it again, hopefully, I can dispute it.
Unless they remove a nasty review!
Here’s a toast to Pamela Frost Dennis for a delightful mystery read that left me with a smile on my face. I really love murder/crime mysteries, the never-ending feeling of anticipation and shock always make my day. I could never get tired reading mysteries and Dead Girl’s Don’t Blog is not an exception.
I loved how Katy McKenna shares her thoughts on her blog and on the whole book as well. She’s quirky, snarky and feisty. Her blog entries cracked me up, something I fail to deliver on my own blog. Ha! She’s a talented artist who wasn’t much lucky in love. Then her inner sisterly instinct got the best of her when she learned of Phil Hobart’s impending release in prison after serving 15 years in prison, for the rape/kidnapping/murder charges of her high school friend, Lindsay Moore. Phil actually confessed all the things he and his friends had done to Lindsay and has been in incarceration for more than a decade, but Katy felt that it was her civic obligation to make sure that the parole for Phil Hobart wouldn’t happen.
Little did she know, she attracted danger when she started digging about her friend’s rape/murder case. Mystery surrounded her when she learned Hobart’s mom went ballistic after seeing her petition. I myself was mad about the convict’s freedom, but there were times when I actually pitied him. But justice has to be served and what better way to serve this than with a hot Katy on the trail.
I was also overwhelmed by Katy’s cohorts, namely her pets Daisy & Tabitha, plus there’s dear old wise Grandma! Ruby is hilarious! Never a dull moment with her, she is an enigma! I love everything in this book and would be thrilled if the author writes another one. Kudos to her for writing a true-to-life story that has a heart and full of adventures. Now, let me do some action on my own blog, too.
Pamela Frost Dennis has created a unique voice in this book, having her heroine, Katy McKenna, blog her way through the murder of a friend she experienced as a teenager. The event scarred her deeply, and 16 years later, the murderer is about to come up for parole. Katy resolves to stop that from happening, and that starts a wicked chain of events that just might get her killed. The book is well written and very involving. I would not normally read such graphic details of a rape and murder, but this one was so real, like it happened to your best friend, that I could not stop reading. I definitely think there is room in the modern mystery market for blogging to be an integral part of a story line. Excellent job of creating something fresh and new and deeply emotional. ***** Five Stars.
