Her Secret Bodyguard by Mischa Crews: An Unsolicited Review

I enjoyed reading this book. The writing kept me turning the pages and the plot was interesting and original. The only issue I had was that the editing was spot-on through the first half of the book, but then got a bit sloppier as the story wound to a close. it wasn't excessive, but with a word missing here or there, or an obvious edit that didn't catch an extra word, I found myself slowing down to figure out what was being said and it took me a bit longer than usual to finish. I hope that this is helpful to the author, because all it would take is a few tweaks to make Her Secret Bodyguard perfect.

Like I said before, the plot was original and intriguing. But...this was not a thriller as categorized. It is solidly romantic suspense (and is also listed in that genre), which I love.

The ending is rewarding and definitely a happily ever after. I would have liked to see a bit more depth revealed about the characters, especially the hero, as I never really understood why he became so smitten with the main character other than her beauty. But I also like light entertainment, so this hit the mark.

If you enjoy romantic suspense, then this is a must read. Currently only $0.99 on Amazon, it was easy to buy and well worth the investment of my time (the price is basically free, so not much investment there).

Happy Reading!

  1. Hi Heidi. I found your review through a routine Google search. Thank you for reading my book and writing about it! I'm glad you enjoyed the story and characters. Your points about the editing are well-noted. I'm in the process of hiring a new editor to give the book a thorough overhaul. (Hope it's not too little, too late, lol!) Thanks again! :~)

  2. I really did enjoy it! And the editing needed is minor. It certainly didn't take away from the story, just made me slow down. I just saw that you're on Kindleboards as well and I appologize for mentioning this in an open forum... If I had realized beforehand, I would have sent you a private message. Be assured, I never mention editing or formatting in my reviews on Amazon because they are easily fixed:). Great job!!!
