We know authors and Writers sometimes have trouble getting free book reviews. We know it's tough since we write books too. Our reviews are completely honest but we only review books if they catch our interest.
We are a team of retired people in New Zealand and we love authors, love to read, and write free book reviews. It keeps us aware of current trends on what other authors are doing with their books too. We encourage others to write reviews as well.
We wish we could read every book, film, etc., we are asked to review, but we have to limit it to just reviewing the works that interest us. We review most all genres. All our reviews are free.
Here's an example of one of our book reviews:
"Five Stars! Watch Over Me" written by Judy Lawn is a troubled romance, a family at war, a ghost, and a mystery, all set on a tiny mysterious island – what’s not to like in Judy Lawn’s second book in the Rose Rountree Mystery series, "Watch Over Me." What a cast of colorful characters! I felt I knew them very well by the end of the book and I didn’t want it to end. I couldn’t wait to see how Rose would uncover the secrets and the mystery. As I got to the final chapters, the excitement increased and found myself sitting through a Sunday morning finishing the book as I couldn't put it down. Enchanting! Roll out the next book in this series!" - Don S, TeamGolfwell
