To celebrate the release of my new book, An American Family, The Earth Bleeds Red is free today:
This book had its ups and downs. I enjoyed most of the mystery/suspense aspects, but there were several instances of character dialogue and thoughts that didn’t sit well with me. It simply felt unnatural. Overall, it was still worth reading if you like mysteries with a twist, and I gave it 4 stars. I felt like some of the race-related writing came across as forced rather than as a part of the story.
There were times when I couldn’t stand this book, and there were other moments when I really enjoyed the story. My biggest problem was with the main character, Ethan. His responses and actions went beyond the point of simple annoyance. He wasn’t believable, and his actions/speech took away from the mystery, which actually ended up being pretty good. I gave it 3 stars, yet I somehow still recommend it, but I’ll warn you to be prepared to become agitated.
I wasn’t sure about this one when I started it, but I liked Denfeld’s writing. The book is a mix of sadness and that search for a happy ending. I won’t give anything away, but the journey is worth taking. The main character, Naomi, is relentless and doesn’t let anyone walk over her. While there were a couple of connections that felt oddly pieced together, this was still a really good book.
I really loved this book. Campbell pulled me in from the start, and I enjoyed seeing the story through the eyes of the different characters. Some, okay most, were frustrating, but the book was written in a believable way. I liked where the story went and the struggles of the women. If you’re looking for a different type of suspense/mystery, this one is definitely for you.
I found this book to be entertaining and surprising. I enjoyed how the different perspectives from the main characters intertwined, but it was a bit confusing at times. Still, I did not see the ending coming, and that is always a nice treat. This is a wonderful blend of suspense, mystery, and psychological suspense. I gave it 4 stars and definitely recommend it.
This was an interesting book with nice twists and turns. While parts were somewhat unbelievable, I still enjoyed the journey. Any book that can keep me guessing is one that I remember. It’s a mix between a young adult book and a mystery. If you like that blend of young love, hidden pasts, and a crime, then you’ll enjoy this one.
