Riley Amos Reviews, 2nd edition

Okay, so honest review time. Please, don’t take any of this in mean spiritedness. As you get to know me, you’ll learn I strive to never be that way.

Lorine S. Thomas, “Cross Your Heart”

At its heart, this book is a thriller suspense.

The book has an interesting, if slightly predictable plot. I’ve only made it about halfway through, but I honestly can’t finish it. Though the plot is compelling, and the characters pop, the author did a wonderful job with them, the errors just stop me. I won’t go in depth, as I’m hoping to have a chance to read it again once it’s had some work. Some chapters are wonderfully written, and I see no problems. Others need a bit more polish. As B.B. Wynter from the Indie Support board would say, “Dust bunnies. They happen.” I would rate the book a 3/5 because of the errors.

That said, I did enjoy the story of the book, and have offered to re-review it after the author feels it’s ready. I try to do everything I can to support indie authors, and have told her that I made the same mistakes when I first published my book. Still, you live and learn, and I hope to re-read the story soon!
