What Readers are Saying about SHE BELONGS TO ME #SBTM



5.0 out of 5 stars Romance, mystery and great characters! January 17, 2012 By Jaime Rush

Jaynee ends up shot just outside her home, her loving husband finding her. As she lies in a coma, a distraught Jordan must untangle the threads of her recent days to find out why she shot herself. Or did she? For Jaynee wasn't the only one keeping secrets ... and one of those secrets is deadly. Can he find the truth before a killer strikes again?

I really enjoyed this book, and it's not explicit, so teenagers as well as those with delicate sensibilities will like it. You'll be swept off your feet along with Jaynee as she discovers the man of her dreams. You'll be drawn into the drama. And you'll flip the pages fast as Jordan must desperately figure out the truth in time. I was and did!

4.0 out of 5 stars she belongs to me carmen desousa, January 3, 2012

when I open a book and meet the characters, feeling that I know them as real people makes for a great story to me. carmen Desousa acomplished this in the first few pages. As a new author I am also impressed with her ability in writing romance, leaving the readers to use their own imagination. And the mystery of the story gets me to open the book in the first place.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great whodunit!, January 3, 2012
I love mysteries and this one definitely qualified. Yes, there was romance, just the right amount, but the mystery is what kept me reading. I simply had to find out what happened.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect blend of romance and suspense. December 31, 2011

Carmen really wove a tale of romance, desire, obsessiveness, and mystery. Every time I'd feel all warm and cozy, thinking I knew what was really going on, she'd throw me a twist. Had me falling in love and enjoying the whodunit, right up to the end. A perfect blend of romance and suspense.

5.0 out of 5 stars A love story filled with romance and secrets, December 31, 2011
Carmen DeSousa has created a compelling love story filled with romance and secrets. Her tragic beginning captivated me in the first few pages and had me sneaking off during the holidays to finish reading. Her characters were unique and each had a distinct voice. I found myself cheering and cursing them all at times, as I attempted to unravel the clues.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect mix of romance and suspense! December 29, 2011

I read the sample chapter on Carmen DeSousa's blog a few months ago and it intriguied me. After waiting patiently for the release I dived right in. What starts as a mystery quickly turns to romance. Your introduced to the characters and how they met and fall in love. As soon as you get involved in the romance, your pulled back to the present and reminded that something is terribly wrong...who did it and why? I stayed up all night to get the answers, that's the sign of a great read!

She starts you with a tragic scene right at the beginning and then takes you back to the beginning to figure out what really happened. The love story is believable, the characters are interesting to say the least, and it seems everyone has something to gain from this woman's death. I highly recommend reading this cleverly written novel.

"As in any fairytale, everything good must come to an end." ENTANGLED DREAMS:

Now, if you’ve read any of my novels or excerpts, you know I don’t do happy-go-lucky beginnings; and as in any fairytale, a little rain must fall, or in the case of my stories, I prefer a monsoon. This week’s excerpt: But alas, as in any good fairytale, everything good and wonderful must come to an end. After the tragic accident that snatched her mother away from Alexandra, her father moved them away from the beaches of Destin to another beach in Florida. Cocoa Beach. Cocoa Beach was loud, the water murky, and there were no weekend adventures as there had been in Destin. Her father married her evil stepmother, Lilith, who Alexandra was certain was a witch with her long, black as midnight hair and pale-white skin as if she’d never seen sunlight. Her father had admitted he wasn’t in love with Cruella, as she had come to think of the witchy woman, but that he’d wanted Alexandra to have a mother and siblings. Well, she definitely got that. The k

To prologue or not to prologue, that is the question. Readers, please weigh in!

Personally, I love prologues. They get you right into the action whether it was in the past or something exciting that is to come. But that’s exactly why most agents’ blogs I’ve read say not to use them. Paraphrasing…“If you need a prologue, then your story must not be strong enough…” Hmm … well, I like them, and I use them. But I’m curious what readers think, and I’d love you to weigh in. AND, if you have some great examples, please leave the title in the comment section. Now … here’s what I’ve noticed. Plenty of bestselling books have used them, even though they aren’t always called prologues . Same diff in my opinion. My biggest example is ‘Twilight’. If that little blurb wasn’t in the beginning, I don’t think I would have made it through the first chapter. How about movies? I don’t watch a lot. But I’ve started to notice how many have “prologues”. I also don’t have cable, but I have NetFlix, and hubby has just started watching ‘Breaking Bad’. Okay … I

The rule of thirds: No matter what you do, someone will hate you. Get over it and Write On!

No matter what you do in life, a third of the people will love you, a third will hate you, and the rest will be indifferent. Get over it and Write On! Yes, I'm talking to myself. If you're listening, GREAT! It's good advice! Is it easy advice? Heck No! For some reason, even though that percentage is rather low on my books--the percentage of people who hate my books runs about 4.6%--it still hurts.  Note: I only averaged the 'firsts' in my books, the books I actively promote. Because if I go to the second, third, and fourth books in my series, those numbers drop drastically. Obviously, if readers don't like my first book, they don't go on to the rest of my books in a series, so those books receive little to zero one-star reviews. So...if the number of one-star reviews we receive is less than five percent--Thank God ALL of the 33 1/3% of the haters don't write reviews--why do we get so depressed when we receive a one-star review
