At a recent party a friend was praising a couple of books that I wrote – I stepped to the side and asked her if she would be kind enough to post a review. She looked genuinely concerned and said “I wouldn’t know what to write”.

It’s easy, if you can tell me one (or more) things you liked (or even disliked) about the book, you can write a great review. You don’t have to be a professional book reviewer and you can post the review simultaneously on multiple sites.

You would be doing this author and all authors an incredible favor. Potential readers look for books that people want to read and seeing lots of reviews says to them that the book is worthy of their time.

So please, I know several of you out there have read at least one of my books – please help me by posting a review on Amazon, Barnes&Noble, Goodreads, YOUR Facebook page, Smashwords, KOBO, iTunes or send it to me for the Potpourri Parlor.
Thank you!

all march 2015

a good quality book review is NOT the school-age book report. Your review should be a minimum of five or six sentences up to two or three (small) paragraphs. Don’t prove you read the book by including spoilers (that totally unexpected twist that really made the story). Write what YOU liked (or disliked) about the book; a book should be a personal experience for every reader so keep it personal. Be honest but never brutal; if the book was filled with typos for instance but was still a great story say something like “a few distracting typos took away from an otherwise terrific story”. (Always try to find something positive to say). If you didn’t like the book because it was not your favorite genre then own up to it; despite mostly four and five star reviews, my favorite review I received on one of my books was only two stars — the writer stated she didn’t care for it because my style was too much like Danielle Steel and she doesn’t care for Steel (who happens to be one of my faves). Again, review the book from YOUR perspective, YOUR likes and dislikes, and the impact the book had on YOU. Remember to be gentle but always honest.”

Hyphema

by Chelle Cordero
Hyphema: Bleeding in the eye caused by trauma…

Matt Garratti, a
paramedic from New York, moves his wife and son to North Carolina to work at
his dream job as a flight medic. Pakistani born Sudah, his wife, receives
frosty stares and insensitive comments from their new neighbors.

Before long, Matt wonders if he is pursuing his dream or
bringing his family into a nightmare from which they may never wake.
REVIEW
FIVE STARS
A Non-Stop Thriller that Will Leave You Longing for More
Tracy Riva
… Matt and Sudah face obstacles that severely test their relationship and their marriage. I do not want to go into anymore of the specifics here, but while Matt and Sudah’s relationship plays an
important role in the book, the story is much more of an extremely well written thriller and I definitely recommend reading it.

REVIEW
a depth well-done
Janet Lane Walters
In Hyphema, author Chelle Cordero meets
headlong a number of real problems facing her characters. She doesn’t
sugar-coat cultural differences and prejudice. The series of incidents and the
deaths faced by Matt and Sudah cause them to face these problems and gives the
love story a depth well-done.

Within the Law by Chelle Cordero is now available as an AUDIOBOOK on Audible, iTunes, and on Amazon! Also in All Ebook Formats and Print Editions.

Tom gave up on ever falling in love again the day that he buried his high school sweetheart – his fiancé. He started a career in law enforcement just so that he could find rapist… the killer who took everything that mattered to him. Just when he is about to see justice done, he meets Alli Davis- the defense attorney for the murdering rapist who took his love from him. And now, she may be in the gravest danger. And, maybe this time, Tom will be able to save her!

Review

Where Murder and Love Collide

 

… Chelle Cordero begins Within The Law with a great setup of murder, betrayal, and plot twists that engage the reader immediately. As I read the opening chapters, I was reminded somewhat of Scott Turow’s Presumed Innocent. Cordero then takes a turn I didn’t expect, and the opening story arc closes. In Ken Follet style, the novel subsequently explores the tragic sequence of events keeping Tom and Alli from being together. The novel is, therefore, less courtroom murder mystery and more star-crossed love story.

Cordero’s writing and plot is engaging and entertaining. One is drawn to Tom and Alli and their story just as they are drawn to one another. The dialogue is real and crisp and the novel moves quickly. Within the Law makes a great summer beach read.

 ~Todd A. Fonseca VINE VOICE

Within the Law audiobook is narrated by Barry Newman, professional voice artist and producer,  residing in Florida. Barry also narrated and produced Chelle Cordero’s A Chaunce of Riches. Barry has come to audiobook industry after years  of both writing and voicing radio and TV commercials, and has this to say about his work:  “I truly enjoy reading a well written story and because of my background I am always thinking about what the listener is hearing. Putting myself in that position I must admit that many times I stop in the middle of a paragraph or sentence asking myself ‘Would I want to hear it that way?’ – our guess is that listeners will give him a resounding YES.

A Chaunce of Riches

by Chelle Cordero

Ben Johnson was hired as a bodyguard for a rich widow and her kid, but he never expected to be working for the woman who had abandoned him just when he had needed her the most. Damn it all, he still wanted her. Samantha Chaunce never thought she would have to explain why she married the rich man instead of Ben. Or that her husband had been murdered…and Ben was the prime suspect.

REVIEW

FIVE STARS A Must Read

LAS Reviewer – originally published on Long and Short Reviews

Nothing is simple in the complex tale of love, danger, and this shared, almost-mourned, past. …the two main characters are both strong, edgy people, and their history together creates a rather unusual relationship between the two. There is anger, resentment, yet, somehow, there is an enduring trust that becomes more and more important in the face of danger.

The very focused plot keeps us madly turning the pages, right to the very end. Yet, it’s the romantic in us that is waiting, and so hoping, that they are both the people we think they are…that somehow, out of all this emotional clutter, disaster and more, they can find their way to true feeling. The story is simply super on all counts. Mark A Chaunce of Riches a Must-Read.
