10th 5 Star Review--with a Twist!

I saw yesterday that I was up to ten reviews for my paranormal romance ebook over on Amazon--all of them 5 Stars, which is very gratifying indeed!

(If you're one of the folks who left a review, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. With ebooks, this is even more important!)

I was reading the 10th review, which was very cute and very funny, when I discovered a surprise twist towards the end. It kind of tickled me, so I thought I'd post it here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entrapment!, February 7, 2012
This review is from: Witch Ever Way You Can (Kindle Edition)
Entrapment! That's what it was. I get this innocent-looking e-mail, shamelessly promoting Deborah Blake's new novel, "Witch Ever Way You Can", and an invisible force causes me to click on a link that takes me to the Amazon website. I am invited to "look inside", but why should I? I rarely read novels and I never would read or watch anything dealing with the paranormal. I wasn't even slightly interested in checking into Harry Potter. But I'm slightly curious about this book, for reasons that I will explain later. So I click and get drawn into this hilarious opening scene of a midnight call from the world's 4th (or 5th) richest man to this sex-starved and skeptical witch (living with five cats) who tries to flip him off. Okay, so it's reasonably interesting. Let's see where this is going.

She decides to shove her cynicism aside and go to NYC to see him. But what will she wear. Like an old jock like me would give a damn? But here comes this vividly colorful scene of a gaggle of coven-mates rummaging through her closet in search of the right outfit. I can't wait for the motion picture. I hope Deborah held on to the movie rights. Now, drawn into the 3rd chapter, we have a titillating dinner scene (with her Hollywood idol, no less) that seriously challenges "When Harry Met Sally." But just when it gets interesting - she starts to stroke his leg with her shoeless foot - Whoops! Please deposit $2.99 for the rest of the story. Is this legal? It's not fair!

I'm hopelessly hooked. I'll sacrifice a bottle of the finest Two-buck Chuck to see where this goes. I call down to the wife "Hold all my calls and cancel my appointments. I'll be tied up for a while."

Now, in the way of full disclosure, I will shamelessly admit that the wonderfully talented and weird author is my eldest daughter. But still, you can't make this up. I don't read novels and I haven't the slightest interest in the paranormal. But I can't put this book down. And neither will you.

Tee hee. Now that's what I call a review. (Thank the GODS this isn't one of my books that has actual sex in it!) If you want to see the others, or check out the book, you can follow this link:

  1. awwwwwwww that made me tear up a little. (I miss my Dad) But I also have to add that the writing gene is clearly in your family. That was a great review! He has every right to be proud especially since he is correct, it is a book that is hard to put down.

    1. Nancy--
      It really is.My father has actually published three nonfiction books of his own (in the field of Project Planning, where he is a star) and my mom is a fabulous novelist in her own right. My kid sister wields a pretty mean pen, too.

  6. OT Deb - are these books yours - Caught in Cupid's Net (Linford Romance)& Dangerous Love (Linford Romance Library)?

  7. Judy--Nope. Apparently there was a woman with my name (the hussy!) who wrote those two bodice-ripper type books ages ago. But they show up in searches for my name. It hasn't been much of an issue with the NF, but I'm not sure if that means I'll have to use a different name once we sell the fiction.

  9. Hi Deborah! Hey I really want to get your e-book of Witch Ever Way You Can and have been trying to find the possible means, but to no avail. This is all due to location constraint. Kindle isn't available in my country and I also couldn't get the kindle version on Amazon to read it on my iPad, iPhone or even on my notebook due to the same restriction. I am uber sad T_T Is there any other way? Where can I get hold of your ebook? I am, from Malaysia :D

    1. HI RJ,
      I'm afraid I don't know much about ebooks. I would have assumed that it could be downloaded from anywhere. You can go to the Kindle page and download an app to "read on computer." Did you try that?

      Deborah
