Wow! That Lorna is a Really Good Writer!

This looks intriguing, huh?

This is what kept me up late for the past several nights.

Remember when I interviewed that intriguing soon-to-be-published author, Lorna Dounaeva? Yes, you remember, Lorna interviewing Lorna…it was all quite confusing but fun.

Well, so much for your memory! Click here for the interview if you need a jolt of “Oh yeah” Juice.

Well, I bought her book when it was released and just finished reading it. You can blame her for the dark circles under my eyes. I stayed up way too late too many nights reading her book because I just had to know what happened next. Gee I hate/love when an author does that to me!

Yeah, and the book was so scary that my hair kind of went crazy, too.

So I thought I would share with you the 5-star review I gave her on both Amazon and Goodreads.

Lorna’s Review of Lorna’s Book, Fry

Do you ever really know a person? Who hasn’t asked themselves that question? That question is at the heart of this psychological thriller. And that’s why is is such a compelling and frightening read. If you are like me, you will think about your life differently after reading this book. One misstep with the wrong person and…poof! Your life could go, figuratively, up in smoke.
Lorna’s writing style is so friendly and conversant, that I felt I was having a relaxed cup of tea with her in her “flat,” yet she didn’t waste any time luring me into the web of intrigue that had me glued to her book. The villain in this thriller is complicated and, oh so, beguiling. The author had me not only wondering about Alicia’s motives, but how she was able to pull off all the crazy stunts she was pulling to basically ruin Isabel’s (the heroine’s) once “normal” life.
The characters in this book are like anyone I know (except the villain, of course and thank goodness!): they have predictable personality traits, yet they often act in ways that defy explanation until certain facts are revealed. Those fact are the carrots that the author dangled perfectly to keep me turning pages well past my bed time.
I don’t like graphic violence and there is none in this book–just a lot of spine-tingling suspense.
Well done, Lorna! I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves a good mystery without a lot of gore.

If you want to learn more about Lorna (her not me), go to Lorna’s website (hers not mine, which should be obvious, because you’re already at mine, right?).
Sorry. I told you I was tired.

  1. Supporting each other is what life is all about–at least to me! 🙂

  2. You have such a generous spirit, Lorna…very kind of you to write this glowing review of Lorna’s book. And it does sound very intriguing too especially because her characters are just every day people…so they seem…

  3. Oh, I just scan Google Images when I should be doing other stuff–like working on my next book or doing the laundry! 😉

  4. Oh good, I meant for the review to pique people’s curiosity! 🙂 Enjoy! And, I know, I’ll never catch up, either. I’ve just come to accept this as a fact.

  5. A very nice review. I am intrigued. I will be on my way to see Lorna … the other one … once I catch up on my blog comments. Oh … did I say catch up ??? Now, I know that’s not possible. I’ll pop over now as I am a super curious little bug.
    Toodles ….

  6. Sounds great! Just wanted to add I am endlessly impressed with your ability to find and embed cool pictures, videos, etc. You’re a techno star!

  7. Perfect timing! And, as you know from my book, timing is everything! Well, maybe not everything… 🙂

  8. You’re such a good supporter of writers and, I’d say, a wonderful reviewer. Happy to tell you my bedtime read right now is your book and I have to go in the other room because my laughter keeps the hubby awake. My favorite scene so far: the Good Friday fart. As it happened, I read it on Holy Saturday. :0)

  9. Yes, we do. I’m reading a book on Buddhism right now. I’m getting to sleep on time and sleeping well!

  10. It is! And she’s from the UK, too!

  11. Sounds like a really good read

  12. Wow, sounds great. But we do need our sleep…

  13. It’s getting so crazy that I have to keep lists of my lists. I understand completely. But I would love to see a review from you in all the public places! 🙂

  14. Just remember, with a name like Lorna, you can never go wrong! 😉

  15. It seems i might be missing out on some here and will have to do a check on all asap good luck with your projects.. remember when you are famous 😉

  16. Sounds really good! And that reminds me, I haven’t yet written a review of yours have I! Sorry, I must rectify that very soon. There’s a couple of blogging friends’ books I’ve read over the last few months that I haven’t reviewed yet. Naughty Vanessa.

  17. Sounds like a good book! Thanks, Lorna. And thanks, Lorna.

  18. I need to say some things. 1) That Bette Davis hair? Not nearly as crazy as mine is every day. 2) The book you are describing sounds really good, but I can’t read it now because 3) I just bought your book! I’m already completely engrossed. The other Lorna will have to wait, but I don’t think it will be too long. I’m diving head-first into this e-book thing!

Silence can be just what the doctor ordered. You know I'm a doctor, right?
