This Is Your Day for a Miracle
This Is Your Day for a Miracle

1.0 out of 5 stars Christian, Beware, July 18 2004
Does it not strike you a bit odd when a man tells you that God can heal you through Him?? God is God, He's almighty, He is the Great I AM...He doesn't need to work through little men like Benny Hinn or anyone else to heal YOU, if that is His divine will. He is not limited, and men do not direct Him or tell Him what to do. God is not a puppet to be manipulated by Hinn and others. Avoid this book, and pick up your Bible. I was once deceived by Benny Hinn, but God opened my eyes and revealed the truth to me in His perfect Word. He wants to do the same for you. Just ask Him.

1.0 out of 5 stars Plleeeeze, July 3 2004
This review is from: My Life (Hardcover)
His "LIFE"?? Give me a break! It's his own deluded and spiced-up interpretation, at best. But then, he did lie a lot while in office for eight years, so who'd expect him to give an accurate portrayal of his life? Still can't figure the attraction this man draws...even after getting caught with that...ummmm...cigar in the White House. The truth evades the man. This book is SLLOOOOW and dry. If you're Bill Clinton you HAVE to make up your autobiography. YAWN...

1.0 out of 5 stars False and Perverse Twist of God's Word, May 23 2004
Anyone who is tempted to believe this woman's story needs to get very acquainted with scripture and they will be able to see the contradictions and the just plain made up stories that are not true. She contradicts the very nature and personality of Christ, whom you can learn about in scripture. Why does she have such a need to be so special that God would choose her? He doesn't choose people for things like this, that also contradicts scripture. She is either an unabashed liar or a nut. Avoid this book. It is heresy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Read, April 21 2002
This is a very charming, heart-warming story, well written with care for the characters and the reader. Michael O'Ryan is so loveable, so supportive and caring that you want him to be a real living, breathing human. The kind of guy your mother would love to invite over for supper. It's fun to watch the romance unfold between the two main characters, and how each has his/her own personal fears to deal with, and how love helps to overcome. This is the kind of story that will make you feel good inside, all romantic, and keep you interested in the story line. Ms. French is an excellent, gifted author. She understands human nature.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good story, April 20 2002
The dialogue and conflict between the hero and heroine keeps the story moving and keeps a pretty good pace. I like how Marsha uses suspense and humor to color her stories, and make her characters unique. I really liked Christian. He was intelligent, and had a heart, too. The surprise near the end of the book was worth waiting for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, April 20 2002
This review is from: Gypsy Lord (Mass Market Paperback)
This book was entertaining, but the hero's internal conflict was very shallow. The book could have ended a little sooner if he'd had deeper conflicts. His bitterness toward his father also made him a very cold man for most of the story. But Ms. Martin is a very talented writer.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better, April 20 2002
This book was quite dreadful; I couldn't even finish it, but kept reading to page 250 because I kept waiting for something good to happen, something believable, for the story to get better. First, the heroine totally jumps out of character, without prior warning, for her first sexual encounter with the hero. Talk about Jekyll and Hyde. It was like the author couldn't think of a better, more believable way to get them together, so she changed Pamela's behavior and personality so much that she was no longer plausible. A female character who has such high standards and such a loathing for the hero's behavior (he also reminds her quite a lot of her father who was a an unscrupulous "rake") doesn't just throw off her clothing along with her scruples to get hot and heavy with the man at the drop of a hat...I'm sorry. And her reason for having this encounter was unbelievable, too. There was very little, if any, internal thought and development for the character's reason for doing this. Maybe the author was in a hurry to move the plot along and get the story completed, but... Then Pamela, who seems so certainly against having a physical relationship with the hero, falls into bed with him at every chance he gets to seduce her! Hello, brainless female?? Okay, then there is one of my biggest pet peeves among some authors: every opportunity exists to write the story so that the characters can get happily married in a reasonably timely manner, but the doesn't get them married by the end of the book (I know because I peeked to the back, just to check, before I threw the book aside) when she could have arranged it to work out that way. The heroine must get pregnant first, after being dumb enough to continue sleeping with the hero time after time after time, without his offering any sign of commitment. I don't like endings that are not tied down properly when the author has the ability and the talent to do so. For me, when the author does it makes a more complete and happy ending. Ms. Dodd is a very good writer, however, and her dialogue is quite witty and creative, but her story and character development is lacking in this novel. She needs to make characters who don't seem to have split or multiple personalities, and then the story will be more enjoyable because people can relate to and believe the characters and their actions.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better..., Dec 17 2001
This book had good parts and not so good parts. While the time travel, time continuum theory is hazily plausible in an unreachable sort of way, the belief in fairies as real beings just isn't...sorry. The story was great at times and the chemistry between the hero and heroine strong, their love touching...but the villain being a chief fairy in the fairy realm, just kinda killed for me. If it had been labeled as a "fantasy romance" that would have set thing straight from the start and that is what I would have expected. But since it is called a historical romance set mostly in old Scotland, I expected a highland romance, which would have been fine. The hero was yummy and endearing at times, strong and protective...but he annoyed me at times because he liked to lick the heroine just a little too much...just kiss her already! He's not a dog! The ending was rather weak since if it weren't for the fairies in the story, the real humans in the story would not have lived to have a happy ending. This one belongs with the fantasy romances.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Author, Great Hero, but Tasteless Heroine, Dec 5 2001
This review is from: Scoundrel (Mass Market Paperback)
The author's writing talent and style get 5 stars, but the story gets 4 because of the (...) heroine. About half way through the book the heroine did something so incredibly stupid, thoughtless, and selfish that I decided that I no longer liked her as a person, and she was unable to redeem herself in my eyes. If I knew someone like her in real life I would really not like her. No matter what this heroine did after that point, she could not get me to feel sorry for her or care about her own thoughts and troubles. Now, the hero, on the other hand, was a wonderful dream man. Sexy, gentle, caring, and intelligent...what a great man. Made me wish men were really like this hero, in real life. By the time the herione FINALLY comes around, the story is over and the hero's heart has been trampled on so many times it is exasperating, and you wonder what the man saw in the heroine. Ms. Dier's writing style is flowing and creative, however, and you can see everything she describes in the story. You can smell, see, and hear all the details. It's a great book worth reading, if just for the delicious hero.
