    Real Insight From A Florida Insider.

    Most books of this nature reflect a rose-colored tone usually with a hidden marketing campaign or sales pitch between the lines. This book is different, in a good way. The author provides a realistic presentation of Florida living. Bugs and all. Romantic ideals are balanced with true insight.I have vacationed in Florida for many years and have some direct experience with the beautiful side of Florida (palm trees, porpoises, gulf views) and the ugly side (seedy transients, obscene traffic, overcrowding). The author drives home the concept that vacationing and living there are two different worlds. Sometimes the author voices a personal opinion that may be unpopular or politically incorrect. It's these opinions sprinkled throughout that make this book better. It also helps people like me, who are considering a move to Florida, make more informed choices.My only complaint is that the book didn't contain enough information.

    Some good info with an overall negative bias and sloppy execution

    A quick pass by a professional editor would improve this book greatly and enhance the author's credibility. There are some real grammatical and stylistic howlers here.That said, I read with fascination Stack's vivid portrayal of the miseries of a Florida summer that send many packing back north, often at a huge loss. Alligators in your swimming pool. Snakes crawling into your pool cage to get the geckos. Heatstroke-inducing temperatures and humidity if you dare to venture outside at midday,making neighborhoods into ghost towns. Hurricane evacuations uprooting you and forcing you to join an endless exodus of stopped traffic (woe to you if you need gas; every station along the way will be out, and forget about a place to stay if you haven't made a reservation long before evacuating). Power outages in the "lightning capital of the world." Giant cockroaches. And more.The best way to enjoy Florida, according to Stack, is to become a "sixer" - 6 months in Florida... 3/5 Mimijo "MJH" (TN USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Wierd and wonderful Florida

    It's not hard to find strangeness here.On my drive from the southeast part of Florida to the western shore of St. Pete Beach, I encountered one very odd thing after the next, in a very strange (at least to me) landscape.I'm not used to driving for hours without seeing any buildings, as a native northeasterner, for one thing. But in the vast wilderness of empty pastures that is central Florida, where there are no houses or buildings for hours, was a Wal-Mart, with a full parking lot. My mind went blank.I drove another two hours, seeing no signs of any slightest civilization, and came to---are you ready---a store selling ball gowns, with mannequins modeling them in the front window. I hadn't even seen one other car in hours. I drove another two hours, with no houses or stores or buildings, only cow pastures without cows, very rarely seeing another car, and came to a gas station, where stood---the Refrigerator! And he was signing a boy's autograph, before... 5/5 AKN - See all my reviews, October 14, 2012

    Great read if you like Child, Coben et al

    0 4/5 Geordie Lad (Cincinnati, OH, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Stiff Arm Steal: A Miami Jones Case (Paperback) If you enjoy the Myron Bolitar character from Harlan Coben or Jack Reacher from Lee Child then downloading or purchasing this book should be a no-brainer. The author provides a plot with sufficient twists and turns to keep the reader engaged and a lead character that is interesting but not (yet) bogged down with back story baggage. As a first outing for Miami Jones this story grounds the reader in the character essentials and whets the appetite for more depth which one can but hope future books will provide. The premise of this story, the theft of a Heisman trophy, is intriguing and the author provides sufficient explanation for readers unfamiliar with NCAA football. Unlike several other crime/mystery books at this Kindle price-point this is a full length novel and will certainly see you through the flight from Miami to LAX. Overall, great first outing for both the author and Miami Jones and I look forward to the next installment. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 30, 2012

    Slow Moving

    0 3/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Stiff Arm Steal (Miami Jones Florida Mystery Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition) The dialogue is good but the plot is weak and it moves at a very slow pace until the final 70 pages. Also, does anyone proof read anymore? Examples include "to much" rather than "too much". Also, there is a reference to a former MLB player and his name is spelled correctly the first time but mispelled every subsequent time. These are just few of the annoying mistakes in this book. I doubt I will I read anymore offerings from this author. There are many other authors in this genre to choose from. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 31, 2014
