Bottles & Books Reviews
'I was enthralled with this new twist, which did not disappoint - the pace grew right to the end.' Lexa Harpell, To Mum, Gifts From the Soul'Author Elizabeth Horton-Newton offers a fresh take that will encourage readers to ask their own questions in the thoughtful novel View from the Sixth Floor.' The Write Edge'Five stars and well earned! I read this book in the kindle edition and finished it in one sitting.' Michael Lynes, There Is A Reaper: Losing a Child to Cancer'I have to say that this book earned the 5 stars. From the first page I was sucked into the story and the history. It was a great book filled with history,romance, intrigue, and conspiracy. It was very well written and had a great storyline. It was a work of fiction, but books like this can really get a person to thinking about the time old question of What If? This is one of the best historical books I have read in a while and will highly recommend.' Stormi, BoundlessBook ReviewsFinally, I must applaud the writers' imagination. The plotting of her story holds true despite the real world truths stacked against it.' Mark Fine, The Zebra Affaire: An Apartheid Love Story 'What starts as a weird hybrid of middle-aged romance cum road trip, turns into a paranoid thriller in the style of TheParallax View, and gets faster and faster to a breathless denouement. Full marks also for accurate descriptions of spies' "tradecraft".' Charlie Flowers, The Riz Sabir Series
'Not only are the main characters well developed, the cameo appearances of Officials/Corrupt lawyers and even waitresses are in perfect keeping with the peripheral activity that creeps into the main plot. I would recommend this as a cozy but intelligent read, difficult to put down once started.' Andrew Wilson
