Zoe Sugg, a hugely popular blogger and vlogger, has stepped into the literary fray by writing her first novel. So far, so what?
Of course, we love the romantic idea of someone starving in a garret somewhere and then producing a book that would wring tears from angels, laughter from statues and respect from the critics. But that's our fiction and not hers.

Samantha Tonge lives in Cheshire with her lovely family, and two cats who think they are dogs. When not writing, she spends her days cycling and willing cakes to rise. She has sold over 80 short stories to women’s magazines. Her bestselling debut novel, Doubting Abbey, was shortlisted for the Festival of Romantic Fiction best Ebook award in 2014. Its fun standalone sequel is From Paris with Love. Mistletoe Mansion stars a new set of characters and is for fans of cupcakes and Christmas!

"...You become totally immersed in the lives of the characters..."
"Prepare yourself to laugh..."
"I am at 43% (I am reading on my Kindle) and I am about to give up."
"...Great plot good book and if u want me to spoil it for u just let me know." (How very public spirited of you.)
"Not my favorite but also not my least favorite." (Arguably, the same could be applied by the author to the review.)
When you factor in the fact that some reviews are based upon review copies, the only true measure of a book's commercial success is book sales. I wonder how the metrics would look if freebie downloads and their reviews were featured separately?
The more I look into it, the more I gravitate towards the opinion that none of this really matters. However, if the ebook publisher takes me and my thrillers on, rest assured I'll be back here in search of reviews quicker than you can say paraprosdokian.
Wish me luck...and tell me about the best and worst reviews you've ever received.
