Book Description Bloopers
Actual descriptions in the Kindle Store, but I won’t embarrass anyone by mentioning the book:
Description: This book tells the story of two second-generation star-crossed lovers facing a hurricane on the Texas coast, hold up in an historic hotel.
My reaction: A hold up! Did the robber get all their money?
Description: Nicolette had been bullied by Jay for most of her school life and that and a few other things had led to her leaving the small town she’d grown up in.
My reaction: That and a few other things have led me to not buy this book.
Description: She winced through the pouring rain as pain shot up through her ankle, at the man who was helping her.
My reaction: I’ve never seen pain shoot up through an ankle at another person. Must be paranormal.
Description: A novel about the afterlife, guardian angels in training and how someone who has passed on interacts with his/her family to bring them piece.
My reaction: Piece? Piece of what? A piece of pie would be heavenly.
Description: In an obscure suburb of Belfast Doctor Morathi Opong, an unorthodox physicist, develops the ability to travel in time and with his college, Tommy Weatherall, arrives in the twenty-sixth century.
My reaction: Travelling with a college has to be cumbersome. And who goes to a college named Tommy?
Description: Someone is brutally murdering innocent women in downtown Toronto. . . A light, fun, and fast paced mystery.
My reaction: Brutal murdering innocent women is light and fun? Those Canadians have a unique sense of humor.
The Kathleen Turner Series – Three Romantic Suspense Novels – 99p each
No Turning Back (99p) Kathleen Turner has goals. She moved to Indianapolis to start seeing to them, but things aren’t going quite as well as she’d hoped. She’s a runner for a high-powered law firm in town.
One of her new friends is her neighbor Sheila, though Kathleen can’t say she’s completely comfortable with Sheila’s job choice as a high-dollar escort.
When Kathleen hears fighting coming from Sheila’s apartment, she knocks on her friend’s door, only to find Sheila murdered. And Kathleen Turner, law office runner, can trust no one if she wants to survive.
Turn to Me (99p) When Kathleen Turner, office runner for the prestigious Indianapolis law firm of Kirk & Trent, started dating the boss she knew the risks. But she’s always known there was a termination date on her relationship with Blane.
She just didn’t expect that termination to be her funeral. Kathleen and Kade, Blane’s brother and ex-FBI-agent-turned-assassin-for-hire, are on the trail of the killer.
Unfortunately for Kathleen, he’s already moved for the end-game – by painting a target on her…and pulling the trigger.
Turning Point (99p) After her promotion from law firm Runner to Investigator, Kathleen Turner is learning the ropes of her new job from none other than assassin-for-hire Kade Dennon, a situation her boyfriend Blane Kirk is none too happy about. Kathleen, Blane and Kade must atone for the sins of the past and the present. The fallout will force Kathleen to a turning point…in her career, and her life.
