Today it’s the turn of Friday Review Share to support Indie authors. Please leave a link in the comments to a review you’ve had on Amazon or Goodreads for one of your own books. A link to the review and a description of the book would be great (or the review itself if you like), because let’s face it, if people are interested in the book they will certainly check it out!
If you haven’t yet had any reviews for your books, then you can leave a review you’ve written for an Indie book that you’ve read and enjoyed.
I’ll start the ball rolling by sharing a 5 star review I received on Goodreads on 27th June from Alex Craigie for my novella ‘Scam!‘, which won first prize in the 2020 Electric Eclectic writing competition and is now published by Crimson Cloak Publishing…
‘This book was recommended to me by someone else and I have to admit that it shattered my preconceived conceptions of what to expect from it.
The story starts fairly straight-forwardly with newly-married Lauren desperate to escape from the house that she and her husband Ben have to share with his parents while they save for a place of their own. The claustrophobic atmosphere in the house is wonderfully portrayed and gave credence to Lauren’s stupidity in falling for an online scam.
We all think we’re too clever to be taken in by a scam – until we are. The scam itself was slickly done despite the reader seeing clearly what was going on. However, the scam itself wasn’t the important part of the story for me. The way the author handled the impact that it had on Lauren and Ben, and how those ripples further impacted on those closest to them, showed that far more than money is lost in a situation like this.
This wasn’t a long read and was one that I finished in one, gripping sitting. I really felt for the characters and it’s one of those books that will stay with me.’
