I have numerous books on my shelves, and I chose this book to read. It took me longer to read than I wanted, but that was NOT because of the story line, but time I had to read. This book kept me stealing moments here and there, I LOVED it!! Yes, the mystery and impending romance kept me coming back. Well written, I could not figure it out too early and I can't say there were any slow parts either, this whole book kept my interest.
I gave it 5 stars because I finished it with a satiated feeling. I will definitely be looking up more titles from Maureen!
The plot was interesting to follow, I liked following the characters - and indeed, the characters were a wee bit devious and a wee bit convoluted, which made me want to discover what they were up to all the more. I am one of those who tries to figure out who the villain is, and I thought I pretty much had it figured out - but not very early in my reading, which was good (I HATE it when you have it figured out too early in the reading!).
Well done Ms. Miller - I hope many more will pick it up on a whim and read it!
I really enjoyed the plot when it came to the mystery. It was interesting and attention holding.
The storyline contained some good foreshadowing.
I did think that the author 'cheated' a little early on when the guy didn't follow the perpetrator because he didn't want to leave the woman alone. I mean, if he's following the bad guy, wouldn't she be safe at that point? Just a little iffy there.
This book did have the usual 'characters slobbering on each other' at inappropriate moments that I have come to expect from a 'romance'. While I didn't like it, I didn't downgrade for it as it was genre appropriate.
Character Development: 3.5
Now, I will admit in advance that I do not enjoy Romance novels due to the way that women tend to be protrayed as weak.
Unfortunately, that is exactly how the main character was portrayed: A weak, simmering, hot-house flower. And, the man came in and saved the day.
However, I will add that the development of each character was well-done as it did protray their motivations.
Writing Style: 5 Stars
The descriptions were very good. The writing style was wonderful. I will be interested in seeing more from this author, especially if she turns her pen away from romance. :-)
Editing/Formatting: 4.5 Stars
The editing of this book was wonderful with little or no errors.
The Kindle formatting was a bit odd with about an inch of left indentation throughout the entire book. It wasn't a huge deal, but if you read on the largest font, it could probably be very annoying to only have a couple of words per line.
Overall: Great book for romance novel enthusiasts with a good plot.
Rating: PG-13 for sexual innuendos and adult situations, mild language
I found very few typos and/or grammatical errors in Widow's Tale. Maureen put together an excellently edited work with no more errors than a reader might expect to find in a Danielle Steele novel.
The characters are very well developed over the course of the novel with emphasis on the two main characters, Serena and Brett. Her descriptions of them paint wonderful pictures of two very real persons with real issues and real emotions.
Two secondary, but very distinct personalities were also well portrayed. My personal favorite was Harriett, who ran a local fishing tackle and charter boat operation. She is a very colorful character that added a touch of humor to the situation.
