Lora's Rants and Reviews

My own unapologetic opinions on books and writing. I DO NOT accept review requests but only review books I choose to read and I don't post reviews on Amazon. I'm also persnickity about genre and plot.

The hazards of reading samples

Wolf Hunt - Jeff Strand

I just said yesterday that I needed to finish a book or two before starting any more. Anyone who has followed me for any time knows I am reading through my samples collection to eliminate those I decide not to buy so I can clear up space on my Kindle.


I started reading this one today and by the end of chapter one I was checking the price. It's cheap. The sample took me past chapter three and by then the thought "less than a cup of coffee" took hold and I bought it and continued reading.


Sometimes it just takes hold and draws you in.
