Pumpkinnapper: 2011 EPIC EBook Competition Finalist

This post will list all my Pumpkinnapper reviews. I'll update it as new ones come in. I'll mark the ones with spoilers.

Classic Romance Revival Reviews: 5 wings from Lindsay Townsend (A Knight's Enchantment)
"From its amusing, explosive opening in Lindsell, England in 1816, Linda Banche’s delicious Pumpkinnapper kept me enthralled."

Long And Short Romance (LASR) Reviews: 4 1/2 books

"It's a Regency era All Hallows Eve tale full of hilarity, a dashing hero and a darling heroine, a nuisance of a goose and possibly a spirit or two. What's not to like? Totally cute and enjoyable from beginning to end...escapist literature at its best. The characters and writing will stay with you long after the end."

Penelope's Romance Reviews: A-
"I totally enjoyed this funny, extremely well-written and well-characterized story."

Also on Penelope's Top 20 List for 2009!"Best Romance Novel With No Sex"

Seriously Reviewed/ Sweetly Reviewed (Story: 7.5, Presentation: 9, Total: 16.5 out of 20)
"Goose me again! Too cute!!! I laughed so hard I thought I was going to embarrass myself in my living room :)"

Reviews by Martha's Bookshelf (4.0 out of 5.0)
"This was a wonderfully sweet quick read! I really enjoyed it!"

You Gotta Read Reviews – (You Want to Read)
“I really enjoyed this short story. …It has a great plot. Romance, suspense and a bit of comedy all rolled into one story.”

Night Owl Reviews - 3 1/2 Hearts (contains spoilers)
"The Pumpkinnapper is a fun quick story with a dash of supernatural thrown in to keep things lively."
LK Hunsaker, Literary, Artsy, and Indie
"This 75 page novella is charming, funny, romantic, lightly sensual, slightly suspenseful, and a very enjoyable read."
VoxxyLady at
"Banche's novella is quaint and funny, sweet and romantic, without being gushy or detailed. HEA-seeking romance lovers will enjoy this one."
