One nice outcome from doing the Goodreads Giveaway is that Murder & Mochas is getting more reviews!
Now the main reason I did the giveaway was to put the book in readers hands:
But it’s a bonus when they read it and leave a good review. For instance, Vicki gave Murder & Mochas 5 out of 5 stars:
From the second that I opened this book, I was hooked. Within the first few sentences you are introduced to our main character Kurt West, bounty hunter extraordinaire, who is sitting in a Starbucks and watching an alien. This part alone brought up so many questions in my head about the world that Mr. Bigler had created, like why were the aliens here and did everyone know about them. So I had to read on in order to find out. . . .
To end things, I loved this book. It was a classic who-dun-it but with a sarcastically fun detective, aliens and a small southern town thrown into the mix. And for all those additions it doesn’t lose any of the classic fun that you can find in other mystery novels. I can’t wait for next one!
And what more could a writer ask for than a smiling reader
and a 4 out of 5 stars review:
I was attracted by the premise of the book, a sci-fi detective story. . . .
A real page turner: fast paced, full of suspense, imaginative and packed with twists and turns which had me guessing till the end. The protagonist was believable, likeable and therefore added to the story immensely – Kurt was flawed, sometimes trying (and amusingly failing) to be sarcastic and funny. All the secondary characters were detailed. I enjoyed the flow of the writing and it felt easy to read. . . .
Overall, great plot, good characters, fun read. Really enjoyed and can’t wait for the sequel to come out later in the year.
Thanks Vicki & Tm for the nice reviews. Good news is that book 2 is on track!
