Highly recommended reading for fans of the mystery/suspense genre! -- Midwest Book Review

When I purchased Weekends on my Kindle I was expecting a fast paced murder mystery with a hint of romance. While the plot was fast paced I think specific elements and characters kept the storyline from being light. The book was very jarring in that there was multiple incidents of rape (including using a glass bottle), heavy domestic violence and incest. Add to that there was just too many characters. I rather have a few characters that were fully developed then too many who were almost caricatures. I found the frequent sexual and explicit romance stories disturbing when in literally the next chapter their was a violent rape. Additionally, the villain was obvious from the beginning and based on his description as well as his actions (how he spoke to his intended victims) I don't think he would have lured the amount of victims he did because he was clearly not clever, rather he was repulsive. Add to that, even years ago when this novel was written there was enough physical evidence left behind where he wouldn't have been able to commit as many crimes as he did. He was incredibly sloppy and would have been caught with forensic evidence -- even in the 90's.
Even with all the criticism I will say that the author is a good writer as far as pacing, I just wish her plot had been better thought out and less superficial. Do not pick up this book if you want an easy distraction as it has some very graphic images without enough payoff to make it worthwhile reading.

I found this book hard to read, although I did read the entire book in one day. The characters were unbelievable linked and twisted to the point they were almost hard to follow. It was definitely a work of fiction. I would have rather had a more direct story line.

A clever plot, the family reunion, and good character development make this an enjoyable and fast paced read.

I will be looking for other books from this new author

I did not enjoy this book, so I'll make my review short and to the point: It was poorly written, with a paper thin plot intended only to provide a vehicle for the author to deliver a sex- and violence-ridden story chock full of cliches, insulting stereotypical characters (the uneducated Southern redneck, the slick city boy, rich bitches, etc.) and laughable "romantic" entanglements like (WARNING: SPOILER FOLLOWS) lesbians in love "turning straight" after one weekend with a couple of good looking men. I guess Kevin Smith was right...(you'll get the reference if you've ever seen Chasing Amy; if you haven't seen the movie, I recommend watching that rather than wasting your time on this drivel). Skip this, it isn't worth reading even if it's free.

I finally finished the book "Weekend." I would have stopped midway but kept hoping it would get better. Such a hodge podge of Disneyland stories. Everyone met their true love, including two lesbians who decided they were straight after one weekend with this marvelous group of fairytale men. Of course, they threw in a serial rapist for interest and corny family hero's including one who was of course, an FBI agent with his own gun. It was interesting how he handled every crisis in the state of California, after coming from the east coast. I was really hoping I had finally picked a story of substance. This one was not even worth "free" reading. Don't waste your time.

This is one of the worst books I have ever read. It reads as if it was written by a 15 years old female who had just learned a lot of bad words and decided she had to get them on paper before she forgot them. It is a schoolgirlish effort at writing. The plot is a loose scattering of vignettes and poorly gatherd into a cohesive whole. The language is infantile and sexual references reveal the inexperience and breathless expectetaions of the writer.

A complete waste of money, and I hope she doesn't write any more until she has learned something about plot and story construction. Even a week at a local creative writing course would improve her style a little.

It started off with some potential, but rarely have I read a book which contained so many contrived situations. Everyone falls in love with someone, there are juvenile sexual scenes, as well as; a serial killer, a cliche southern red-neck, a typical 'runaway' bus station situation, and the whole family has incredible luck and timing as to run into each other a short time after arriving in LA. This truly reminds me of a story written by a twelve year (minus the sex scenes of course.) It was a waste of time and I understand why it was free.

Format: Paperback
A family gathers in a posh California hotel, for what they believe will be a weekend of sun, fun, and catching up with long-lost family. What it turns out to be is anything but - full of secrets, lies, steamy sex and a murder mystery that will keep you guessing until almost the very end. Full of great, 3-D characters, fast paced action, with just enough erotica thrown in to keep it interesting.

There are a lot of characters in this book - you may need a scorecard to keep track at first, but soon they all become like friends, and you know their quirks enough to know who they are. And some people AREN'T what you believe them to be, which will totally throw you for a loop!

As the cover art suggests, this is a great book to read while sitting by the beach, by the pool, or while stuck at the airport. Heck, it's a great read anywhere!

I can't wait for her next one.
