Présentation de l'éditeur


From bestselling author Diane Moody, Strike the Match has over 100 "Five star" reviews.

The last place twenty-four year old Keri McMillan wants to be is back home in Waterford Bay, Oregon. But after two years at prestigious New York University pursuing a degree in journalism, her bank account is drained. Keri is determined to move home for one year - and one year only--- to make some serious money working for her dad's log cabin company, but her goals all go up in smoke when the company's new showcase home burns to the ground.

Six months ago, Grant Dawson bought the Waterford Weekly, a small newspaper in his father's hometown. Burned out as a reporter for the L.A. Times and tired of all the inherent politics, he welcomed the slower pace of this Oregon coastal town and the more relaxed lifestyle producing a weekly paper. He enjoys being close to his dad again, a quiet man who captains a whale-sightseeing boat.

Grant is surprised at his unexpected interest in Keri, the niece of columnist Luby Sanders. He thinks Luby is a hoot and can't help but adore her. But she's also playing matchmaker, trying to interest him in her niece. When Keri shows up at a log cabin fire in the middle of the night, she's not the geeky college kid he expected. But he's not about to fall victim to Luby's orchestrations.

Even if her niece is beautiful.
And vulnerable.
And apparently in need of a job.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 'Lucy' does it again! 29 décembre 2011
Par S Wilson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Lucy and her teacups make for great storytelling. This time it's about Keri--an undergrad with journalistic dreams meeting a burned out newsman--or is he? And speaking of burned out--there's an arsonist on the loose in the small Oregon coastal community. Sure, it makes for some great headlines for the budding reporter, but maybe what's really at stake is Keri's heart.

I look forward to the next installment of Lucy's teacup novellas...something about Tennessee?? Bring it!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Somewhat interesting, didnt quite get how it was a Christian romance 30 janvier 2013
Par Sherrie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
First, I thought the prologue and epilogue was quite interesting. I was hoping the story would be more like that, but I found it disappointing.

The story itself was ok but I really didnt get the romance part of it. The main character seems immature and very petty, and it really didnt flow how he suddenly came to love her after their interactions were mainly of her being rude, and him thinking she was immature.

I got this book thinking it was a Christian romance (as it was listed on a Christian book list), and I did see references to "faith", more so from the aunt. Keri was not a believer by her own admission and there did not seem to be a struggle of coming to faith (or any indication that God for her was Biblical). Her moving in that direction was a vague voice in her head she attributed to God, and yet that seemed enough for Grant, who it seemed was a believer.

Anyway, their romance seemed to come out of nowhere and to me was not terribly believable.

The rest of the story was mostly interesting, but as a package, I was left wanting more.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 What I'm beginning to expect from Moody 28 janvier 2012
Par L Miller - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This is a continuation of the 'Teacup novellas'. What I said in that review applies here. It takes more skill and carftsmanship, in my opinion, to build a satisfying short story. This story is ok, but not particularly satisfying. A novella gives a little more 'wiggle room' than short stories do, but it too often comes out as a long short story (and even too long). It's not easy to strike the proper balance. I've known many portrait and landscape painters and sculptors. They all say the trick to art is knowing when you're finished with the work. The same is true of stories. Some stories have strong characters or fun characters or riveting plots which beg for a longer format. Some get squashed into short stories or novellas, where there isn't enough canvas on which to draw out the stories or characterizations. It's the mark of a very good writer to know what kind of canvass to use, or to be able to fit their work to the format required.

Moody's title for this work was not quite a fit: It suggests more action than actually takes place. Her characters are pleasant, engaging, but not overly well developed. Her female characters have more depth. The males are paper standup figures, for the most part--at least in these novellas. I have more Moody works in my Kindle. I'll save them for a rainy day, or for a day when I need a light lift.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Ended Too Soon 7 décembre 2012
Par J. Hopkins - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Going to a prestigious university in New York to study journalism cost much more than Keri McMillan thought, so, after two years, she comes back home to work for her dad's construction company in Oregon. When his latest project burns to the ground, she discovers he's near bankruptcy. Grant Dawson is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, so Keri can't understand why he chose to leave Los Angles to run the little Waterford Weekly. After the fire, he hires her as a reporter, and gives her the assignment of finding the arsonist.

I didn't like this novella quite as much as I did the first one in this series, TEA WITH EMMA. Keri was too self-centered, prickly, mouthy, and hard. I knew who was setting the fires from the first time he came in the picture, but this only made me feel good, and didn't detract from the story. STRIKE THE MATCH left too many questions unanswered. We don't even know if Keri's dad is able to weather his financial storm or if she'll finish her degree or stay in Waterford. This one should have been longer and really finished. It almost appeared as if the author became tired of it too soon.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Dislike the main character 4 avril 2012
Par Loves to read - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The main female character, Keri, is rude, obnoxious, rude, self-centered, rude, unlikable, and did I mention ... rude! I just fininshed chapter 3 and I don't think I'm going to finish reading it. I very rarely not finish a book.
Usually you get to know a character and like them ... and if they say or do something not nice, you can excuse them. But when a character starts off being horrible .. not inspired to keep reading to see if she ever gets nice. I like everyone else in the book except her, and frankly at this point I could care less what happens to her.
