Review of A Tine To Live, A Tine To Die

A Tine To Live,
    A Tine To Die

Written by Edith Maxwell

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

When I first looked at the cover, I thought, Tine & Vegetables, what do they have in common? “Tine to Live and Tine to Die,” what does this me? I am glad I looked at the book.

Food has its mysteries, but this was a murder mystery, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Having had part of my life living on a vegetable farm with my grandparents, I related to the main character’s daily endeavors albeit she is cultivating an organic farm; my grandparents did not.

Cam, the protagonist, a farm is disrupted by a violent event where a pick fork with three tines was used. The police are called, and the mystery of what had happened commences.

In a well-written story, Ms. Maxwell uses her main character to explain how organic farming is done, how she is coping with bad publicity the farm is getting over a murder on her farm, and how she is trying to unravel the mystery to save a friend.

I know the food is interesting. I eat every day LOL.  Ms. Maxwell has woven an entertaining adventure around it - a pleasant read with an exciting ending.

Review of Bourbon and Blood

Bourbon and Blood

Written by Garrard Hayes

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

Life in the Big Apple, New York City, can be overwhelming. It can be even deadly if you happen to be dragged into being associated with mobsters. This is what happens to Mr. Hayes’ main character Bill. The “Who, what, when, why and how,” is conveyed in plausible events.

From induction, Bill goes on a path of never-ending destruction of property and individuals. He is paired with a criminal mind, who is working for his own preservation and leaves Bill with the bag at times, so to speak.

All the elements of the criminal world cross Bill’s path including drugs, prostitution, murder, and gang boundary battles. Using living color descriptions of the underbelly of big city life, Mr. Hayes keeps us on edge, scene after scene.

In the last scene, which comes after Bill makes an important decision; the author leaves the reader wanting to know what will happen to him next.  Will his journey bring him back to a normal city life free from crime involvement? Will his love affair renew itself?

Well, I will have to read the next book in this series. It will be on my BTR list when it comes out because Mr. Hayes' writing is no-nonsense prose, thrilling, and right to the point.

Hot scene from Three X Wives

Three X Wives of Don Quixote Smith

Excerpt from Part II Second wife, a Prostitute, who Don Quixote meets at a brothel in Santo Domingo Dominican Republic.

The women tell their stories. Romonita speaks:

      I handed him the soap and checked his nails. “I’m glad you got a manicure or I wouldn’t let you wash me where I want those fingers to go.  Don’t be gentle.” I kissed him and turned around giving him my rear end to clean.
     He rinsed me down with warm water and moved his soapy fingers down my back to the crack of my buttocks. Kissing me on the neck, he whispered, “I know what you want.”
     Moving gently at first, he entered my short body with one and then two fingers. Kissing my neck and back, moving his fingers in and out for some time (I lost my sense of time.) I heated up so much I almost climaxed. 
     When he removed his fingers, he seemed to be taking a break.  I turned around to kiss him. One short kiss was all I got. He turned me around saying jokingly, “I’m not done with you yet.” He kissed my neck.
     Q penetrated my anal area. First, probing with one finger and then with two, I went crazy with my emotions towards his prob.  Again, I lost time in the pleasure of the moment – his fingers probing each orifice and my movement towards his force, giving me enjoyment I never received from a man I cared about. I climaxed with such a groan I was crazy with joy.
      I relaxed for a moment and then took control. Face to face, I said, “Now you get what’s coming to you.”

Review of No Mercy

No Mercy

By Wendy Cartmell

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

As I have mentioned in a previous post, I enjoy short stories. In this small collection, Ms. Cartmell also gives an excerpt for Steps to Heaven, which I totally enjoyed a few months back, and others with short stories.

In each story, she keeps you on edge.  “No Mercy” is the events of a soldier being burnt to a crisp in his kitchen. It’s another Sergeant Major Crane SIB Investigation, as was Steps to Heaven.

Two leads are perused with impressive results, but the possible murder suspect isn’t apprehended.  It may have been the victim, who set himself on fire, or it was a domestic violence situation that led to his death. She had No Mercy.

“What if…?” is a different twist on domestic violence.  This may or may not have ended in a boom. “Another Satisfactory Day” has a marriage end in a comical and resolving day for the wife.

Wendy keeps the reader involved and interested. She has mastered storytelling.

Review of The Law Man

The Law Man

Written by Vonda Norwood

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

If you are looking for Erotic stimulation, I recommend any of Vonda Norwood’s novels or short stories: Indie Authors Make Better Lovers, Playing the Coach, and others. She has a knack for putting you in the middle of the action when she writes.

In The Law Man, a young college student, Mary Evans is looking for someone to control her daily sexual life. A little domination is what she would like. The explicit way that Ms. Norwood conveys this to the reader may or may not shock you.

For me it was entertainment, reminding me of when I was young and uneducated sexually. Mary is a student who has learned her lessons from her dominating professor behind closed doors of his classroom to explosive heights.
