This review is from: Murder In Panama (Kindle Edition)

Murder in Panama, besides being a romantic fast moving adventure set along coastal Panama, questions how far govenment and large corporations can go in steering our lives. Super-hero, Jimmy Hart, thinks they have outstepped their bounds and takes corrective action in this fiction that you will not be able to set down. Another winner for author Bob Hatting.

Such a fast moving, action filled story!
It gripped me from the very beginning, caught me with delightful characters and their adventures. Hart and Coreen had my sympathy from the start, not losing it through the story, not even for a moment.

The exotic setting was a pleasure, making me want to visit Panama badly. This book is a must read for those who want to learn more about this country, while enjoying a good story. If you have a ticket for a plane heading to Central America, grab this book and read it while in the air. You will not regret it and the hours of the flight will pass quickly.

The premise of the book was very interesting, and I heard that it might have been based on real scientific conclusions.

All in all a highly recommended read!

AS always, I very much enjoyed the story that Robert Hatting weaves in this fast-paced, action-packed adventure, sprinkled with romance. I appreciated the way he developed the characters, as well as the story line. I quickly became enamored of the hero, Jimmy Hart, and rooted for him as he took on what should have been an enemy too big to overcome. Join in this fascinating ride as Jimmy manages to rise above the challenges that come his way. I guarantee that you will be cheering for him as well. :)

This review is from: Murder In Panama (Kindle Edition)

Jimmy Hart is a man of many talents and the perfect hero for the novel 'Murder In Panama' by Robert Hatting. There is a little of something for every reader, fast paced excitement, intensive knowledge of the locale (makes you believe you are there in Panama), romance, daring sidekick, an American soldier who continues to fight, and a hero who is bright and smart, bright and smart enough to make millions from his inventions. Meet Panamanian people and share a view into their lives, get a feel for the country. Pay attention to what the author writes in the novel and you might be on the way to becoming a Jimmy Hart!! He is Panama's James Bond. It was hard to put the book down.

This review is from: Murder In Panama (Kindle Edition)

Murder in Panama, set amidst the tropical languor of the Pacific coast of Chiriqui Province, is an intriguing mix of murder, corporate malfeasance by Big Pharma, greed and understated heroics. All that's needed to enjoy this is a hammock and a pina colada!

This review is from: Half-Breed (Kindle Edition)

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book . I love reading stories that took place in the territories of the old west. This author keeps your interest throughout the entire book. I didn't want to put it down. I have been pleased by all the books I have read by this author. I highly recommend this book.

I read this because I have read other of this authors works and was equally impressed. The cowboy/western genre is one I never would have even tried had I not read His Alaska Be Damned. Since then I have read everything he has here on Amazon and enjoyed every single one. Highly recommend this author.

This review is from: Half-Breed (Kindle Edition)

One usually thinks of Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday in Tombstone when they think of attempting to bring law into pre-statehood Arizona. This is a story about how it must have been for cattlemen dealing with that same lawlessness, rustling and ethnic and cultural conflicts out on the rangelands of Arizona during that same period of time when the law usually ended up being more like a burr under your saddle than of any assistance. The "Half-Breed" grandson and his grandfather end up cleaning out the rustling and lawlessness from both sides of the border and recover their herd with some assistance from his native american family and taking the law into their own hands. Another great reading book from Robert Hatting that is so vivid that you can almost smell the horses.

This review is from: Crystal Cowboy (Kindle Edition)

I enjoyed reading this book from cover to cover. It opened my eyes as to what really goes on behind the scenes of a rodeo. The author has a wonderful imaginative mind and keeps up the interest of the story throughout. I loved Crystal Cowboy and look forward to reading all of his books.

 

 

5.0 out of 5 stars Crystal Cowboy, a wonderful adventure in the modern Wild West, April 5, 2013

By 


This review is from: Crystal Cowboy (Kindle Edition)

Having already read another of this author's books, I picked "Crystal Cowboy" expectant. And yes, disappointed I was NOT!

This story gripped me from the very beginning, with its lovely main characters, Harp and Goldie, mother and son who are friends and partners more than anything else. The journey to a local rodeo contest turns into a long gripping adventure for both of them, and for quite a few others, their friends and partners and even their antagonists. Like it so very often happens in a real life, they got into all sorts of unexpected adventures the modern day cowboys, apparently, know how to deal with, finding love and more friends along the way.

I kept turning pages (virtually so, as I'm very fond of my Kindle), enjoying the journey alongside with them, surprised at the many unexpected turns. The story rolls on smoothly, pleasantly, wonderfully consistent, enjoyable and light despite its unarguable depth. The characters are growing, changing along the way, but subtly so, the way it happens in the real life, usually through mundane, non-dramatic events.

I grew very fond of this author's style and I'm planning to read as many of his works as I can lay my hands on, having a few more of his books on my Kindle already.

A highly recommended 5 stars read!

This review is from: Crystal Cowboy (Kindle Edition)

Crystal Cowboy takes you right into the heart of modern Rodeo. A riviting story of a group of rodeo cowboy's lives in and out of the arena that could have just happened anywhere you might find people wearing cowboy boots. I hope the author does a sequel as I was left wanting more as I finished the book.

 
5.0 out of 5 stars What a great read!!, July 16, 2013

I thoroughly enjoyed this read. Mr. Hatting really brings the world of rodeo to life in a way that makes it easy to understand and feel as if you are sitting right there with the characters - even if you have never been around such things. The love stories nestled within the main story add to the flavor in a very entertaining and heartwarming way. I would definitely recommend this book.

This review is from: Crystal Cowboy (Kindle Edition)

What an exciting book to read! Cowboys & girls will not want to miss this one. A modern day rodeo setting that includes political activists, a mother/son/mom's boyfriend war, and well-written romance, makes this book much more than just another western story. Loved reading this contemporary rodeo adventure by Robert Hatting.

This review is from: Crystal Cowboy (Kindle Edition)

I agree with what the two previous reviewers said. I have been to a couple of rodeos in my life and never had any idea of what all went on behind what you see in that brief moment.
I have read everything else he has written and enjoyed this one equally. I think he has lead a very interesting life from what I have read. I started with Alaska Be Damned and because I enjoyed it so much I thought, "what the heck" I'll buy a Cowboy story and see how he does there. Normally I would never have spent a dime on a cowboy story. Darned if I didn't want him to write a sequel. Well, he has a couple of others quite similar so I bought them too. Enjoyed them all. Some day I would like to meet him. Mr. Hatting if you read this please write something else for us. Thanks
P.S. Even if you think you wouldn't enjoy one of his stories give it a try.
