Room 202 Book Review

Any book title with a Room Number promises to be steamy.

I enjoyed reading the free sample so I was persuaded to buy the short book. The author tagged this as a one hour read. I must add I believed in buying this book because I follow the author on Twitter. She uses the handle @TweetHappily .

People become customers because they share empathy with the seller. A buyer is likely to become your customer when they know you. There are many authors selling books on Twitter but their tweets do not resonate with me. Thus, I’m not curious to read their books.

I’m not a frequent reader so I make a lousy literary critic. I don’t intend to complain about books which are painstakingly written. Since the author practically pleaded for constructive feedback comments, here are my two cents.

Helen, the female protagonist, stays in Room 201 of St. Anne Villa. Its a cliche that the dividing wall between Room 201 and 202 has a tiny peephole. I mention cliche because I have watched at least one movie that used this. The reader is left to assume that every dividing wall between rooms, has a peephole to spy on the hotel guests next door.

There were only two people staying in Room 202, so it is needless to speculate whodunit.

Helen drinks a lot. She seems dependent on her drinks.

The impostor who masqueraded as the dead woman Elizabeth Voss, could have been coached by Mr. Arpin, on what to say when anyone talks to her about her diamond ring. Couples are familiar with their other’s small talk.

Something rolled up in a piece of cut out carpet is a cliche. At least, it is better than the suitcase cliche.

The plot is a cliche. People who went into a hotel alive, are then later brought out dead.

This short fiction is fast paced. Never a dull moment as the action flows.

My opinion:

Please carry on writing books @TweetHappily. I’ll try my best to keep up on reading. I’m sorry you never responded to any of my tweets, nor to read this review.

You can buy from this #PaidLink #ad which gives a tiny #CommissionsEarned to me.
