So . . . How was it for you?
Posted by Lizzie Lamb
It’s always a pleasure to receive a review from someone who’s bought, downloaded and read your novel. Most of the reviews I’ve received are balanced and constructive, but you can’t please everyone – and some reviews reflect that. In my opinion, the best reviews are the ones where the reader ‘gets your novel’, falls in love with your hero and roots for your heroine all the way to the final page. So thank you, dear reader, for buying my novels and sharing your views with me.
Here are some reviews for my latest novel: BOOT CAMP BRIDE
- there’s something extra special in Lizzie’s books. It was there in “Tall, Dark and Kilted”, her previous novel, and it’s definitely present and correct in “Boot Camp Bride”
- Funny, sexy and a good story, with a hint of mystery
- perfect blend of excitement, romance and humour
- It’s a perfect romance novel for these long dark evenings and has a good mystery tale to carry you along
I always fall in love with my sexy heroes and it looks as if my readers do, too!
- I found myself falling for him, just like his leading lady
- Brave, compassionate, noble and – of course – jaw-droppingly sexy
- The wonderfully named Rafael Fonseca-Ffinch is a total hunk
- Ffinch is the alpha male with a chink in his armour so beloved by romance readers
- The fascinating Rafael is shrouded in mystery
- (I loved) the mysterious but irresistible Rafael Ffinch
And you can’t beat a feisty, up-for-anything heroine
- Lizzie writes great heroines
- Fliss in “Tall, Dark and Kilted” was fun, feisty and realistic
- In “Boot Camp Bride”, the heroine Charlee (is) the sort of friend you’d happily hang out with
- Lizzie has the knack of creating great female protagonists who quickly get the reader onside, cheering them on
- I loved the Ugly Betty/Bridget Jones style character in Charlee
- Charlee is just divine – full of fire and fury
I love evocative settings – in Boot Camp Bride it’s the haunting Norfolk Marches
- fast-talking heroine, a deliciously erudite yet haunted hero, rollicking through all sorts of high jinks in the wilds of North Norfolk
- Lizzie also uses locations extremely well and paints them very vividly
- her descriptions of (the north Norfolk coast) and its windswept marshes and big skies reminded me of this hauntingly beautiful part of the country
- Lizzie Lamb paints as beguiling a picture of the magical Norfolk marshes, as she did of the Scottish Highlands
And finally . . .
Boot Camp Bride will be available on Amazon Countdown from Monday 23rd December until Monday 30th December.
Lowest price £0.99/ highest £1.99 – but the clock will be ticking
As one reviewer put it . . .
(Boot Camp Bride is) Funny, sexy and a good story, with a hint of mystery. Don’t just sit there go out and buy it. You won’t be disappointed
