5 Book Review!

Long and Short Romance Reviews have rated Miss Fix-It 5 books! I’ve pasted in the whole review…take special note of the part where I’m compared to Janet Evanovich!

And don’t forget to head over to http://www.longandshortreviews.com/LASR/index.htm and vote for Miss Fix-It to become Book of the Week!

The author caught my attention immediately because her main character is blonde, gets her fingernails done, wears customized coveralls and carries a pink hammer. And, even though it’s untraditional role for a female, she likes being a handy “person”!

This is a fast paced story filled with outrageous characters. Her lead characters are strong and opinionated people and they take turns throwing zingers at each other. His mother is rude and unkind. Her family is huge. And someone is stalking Veronica…

I found it easy to relate to this story because the main characters relationship reminded me of my own with my husband. We like to tease each other that way, too. And I had a mother-in-law that never liked me either, so it was refreshing to see someone worse. Ms. Ventura’s writing made me care about these characters and feel like I was involved in their lives.

The author doesn’t hesitate to make her character’s confrontations realistic. Their emotions are honest and the plot is interesting. Ms. Ventura shows a good insight into female mystique and bitchiness. Her fresh, rollicking style of writing reminds me of Janet Evanovich’s. Veronica doesn’t have a gun, but her boyfriend does.

The story is so entertaining and exciting you don’t want to set it down. With suspects everywhere, Cole’s mother telling Veronica she can’t marry Cole, he’s already got a fiancé, and more, you find yourself caught up in the story and anxious to see how things are resolved.

The romance adds an extra dimension to the mystery of who might be stalking Veronica and why. To me, it made the book even more enjoyable with the mix of emotional issues and the danger of the stalker.

I’d like to see more books from this author. I like her smooth style of writing and enjoy reading stories that are fun as well as entertaining.

About oliviaventura

I was born many years ago in... No, seriously, all you need to know about me is that I love love LOVE reading, and it's even more fun to write my own stories (I get to choose the ending that way). I've worked in plenty of different jobs, many in retail, which is the best way to meet some really colorful people, and also in recruitment, telecommunications, and food safety. I live in Melbourne, Australia, and I'm still on the lookout for Mr. Right, so if you know him, send him my way. In the meantime, I'd love to know what you think of my stories, so please drop me a line at liv@oliviaventura.net. Feel free to be lavish with your praise if you enjoyed, otherwise, be gentle!
