Love Reading Review

Best bit:

I found the mystery aspect of this book and the hunt for Oliver Olivovich’s killer twisty and interesting. I liked how the author takes the reader down a number of seemingly unconnected paths. I didn’t know how all of the different leads were connected as I read and I think that the author did well to pull everything together at the end.

Writing humour is the hardest thing since sliced bread.

Someone liked it enough to sit down and write a fairly lengthy review, rather than just 'Wow!'

That, in itself, is an accolade.

Well done, Mark.

Not quite. That and other similar sites are paid for by the publisher/author. That said. they do not guarantee a positive review or indeed a listing.

The things you learn as an indie  :)

I did have an independent review of the type you describe on FB.

No Amazon reviews though :(

A review is a review.  Readers neither know nor care about the terms - they just want to know they can expect an honest opinion.  Well done.
