It needed more details on the storyline and developing the characters instead of ad nauseum descriptions on weather, clothing, scenery, etc. Story had potential, BUT and this is a BIG BUT we did not need to know every petal on every flower, every leaf on every tree, every size 2 waist on the characters -- you get my drift.
Found myself skimming and skimming and skimming, just to get to the end. May 18, - Published on Amazon. Made it distracting where it should not have been. I totally was absorbed into the story because I have not read anything quite like this and it kept me guessing.. I would probably read more of hers but hopefully down the line she can get away from labeling her character and write from the character Wonderfully complex with twists and turns.

It's annoying; i. Sondra did that When it is obvious to the reader who the person is, the repetition of the name becomes clumsy. If Chicago police are that inept, if I plan to murder somebody, I'll do it in Chicago. The police are satisfied of the victim's identity on just the say so of her husband?
What about the autopsy? What about blood type? What about fingerprints? It isn't believable that the alleged murder victim's family never asked to see the autopsy results. Some simple fixes to the story and I would love this book. May 16, - Published on Amazon. This has to be the best debut novel ever. Did Phillip murder Tracy? The answer may surprise you. Prepare yourself for the greatest blood-tingling story of your life.
I've never hated a charact Live and Let Die by Bianca Sloane is a suspense-mystery-crime-thriller about a women who marries the wrong man. I've never hated a character so much! And just when I thought I knew what was going on, I found out it was all an illusion. I enjoyed how realistic the characters and settings are.
The Road to Roberta Flack’s ‘Killing Me Softly’
The plot is insane. Live and Let Die is sort of like a David Lynch movie: a mind-bending tale of jealousy and murder presented in the elegant dress of WTF. Interesting plot I really enjoyed the plot, but I wasn't crazy about how it was written. There were far too many chapters for such a short book. One minute your in the present, the next the past, then back to the present, then on to another character. I just think the story could have unfolded differently. There were also characters that were under developed, such as the neighbor, Cindy. The storyline is somewhat difficult to follow early on, but once Paula is introduc Interesting plot The storyline is somewhat difficult to follow early on, but once Paula is introduced things start to pick up, and the story becomes more interesting.
All in all, not a terrible read.
A well-plotted and imaginative story with plenty of twists and turns. Unfortunately, the writing was rather flat and it really could do with more careful editing. Propranolol is a beta blocker prescribed widely here for the treatment of hypertension and headaches, even in relatively young people.

I also think the last chapter was one too many. It just stretched credibility too far. That aside, an overall good read. Awesome A five Star To think I almost didn't give this Author a chance, the first chapter was a little slow but I kept reading and I'm sure glad I did because once I got going I couldn't stop. This Lady can Write a great Thriller, she kept me on the edge and and kept me thinking.

I highly recommend this book and look forward to anoth Awesome A five Star To think I almost didn't give this Author a chance, the first chapter was a little slow but I kept reading and I'm sure glad I did because once I got going I couldn't stop.
I highly recommend this book and look forward to another Bianca Sloane Captivating storyline, definitely kept my attention. There are some rather disturbing elements, especially in the way Phillip treats his wife various forms of abuse , which may deter some from reading this book. The only thing I would change would be cleaner transitions when the story jumps to the past - some sort of chapter header would be helpful when the story shifts so the reader isn't trying to figure out what's going on. Overall, I enjoyed the read and had some difficulty putting it down. This book is an extremely slow starter; I nearly abandoned it several times before I became interested in the plot.
The transitions between scenes, time frames, and points of view were sometimes unclear and confusing; and there were a few grammatically awkward spots mostly failure to use the past perfect tense where that would have clarified the sequence of events. Overall, however, this was a good read with a very unusual plot. This is a good pacy thriller, outside of the usual formulaic offering.
I wish I could give in 3. There is no gratuitous romance, which really bothers me in these books. Plenty of twists and turns and it doesn't drag anywhere. The main characters are very believable and are developed well throughout the book. A little bit of a rush at the end to tidy everything up but I enjoyed this book and read it quickly always a good sign. Loved it. However, some of the story line made me ill! How dare that pathetic Phillip treat his wife as such.
It couldn't have been me! No Ma'am! The ending I'm ready for my next read to be written by this same author. Koodos to her! For the record, I would rate it 4. As much as I liked the author's previous book, this one didn't really work for me. Too many plot inconsistencies and was quite predictable. And the story seemed to drag at times. I still really like this author's writing style.
