  1. How ridiculous! Your sex scenes (and, indeed, the rest of your writing projects) are excellent! She must be either self-loathing or jealous or both to make such outrageous statements about your writing. Also, deliberately using such terms as ‘deus ex machina’ that would make most readers of her review scurry for the dictionary, indicates she’s trying to show that she’s more intelligent than you AND your readers. What arrogance!
    I can become quite cynical when reading mystery stories that don’t quite add up. You did a fine job with all of the Armchair Detective books.
    I love everything I have ever read of yours, but I particularly loved all the Armchair Detective stories. Try to ignore this silly woman and any other trolls. They clearly don’t have a clue.

    • Wow. Thanks so much for your stalwart support on this, LJ. I suspect you’re right about the reviewer. Obviously, it was some personal issue she had, which was nothing to do with the actual book. Some of my readers have suggested that she probably didn’t even read it–that’s possible, too. While i don’t expect every person on the planet to like my work, I do think some people get some kind of kink out of slamming authors. Hopefully my work speaks for itself and the primarily great reviews from my readers do too. Still, there’s that little tiny insecure child in my brain that winces and cowers and wishes i could be perfect. LOL. Thank you again for being so supportive. It’s greatly appreciated.

  2. I’m so happy that you wrote this and stood up for both yourself and your work. Like you said you can’t please everyone. Some people are just bitter and like to tear others apart. Hopefully future readers will read ALL your reviews, and see that this one is just a miserable woman who wants to make others as unhappy as she is.
