Editorial Reviews

Cynthia S. Arbuthnot
No one really knows what happened to her, although everyone has a pet theory. Amelia is a piece of speculative fiction that tells the tale of curious men who are looking for Amelia Earhart. Vincent Carlson, a designer who works for Lockheed, has always been in love with Earhart. When she disappears, he makes it his mission to find out what has happened.
Cynthia Arbuthnot
...Amelia is action-packed and a great story as well. There are many great elements in the plot, including romance, trials and tribulations, misunderstandings between friends, espionage, and a surprise at the end of the story. This great eBook is a tribute to the electronic format and may hook new readers into this new way of reading.
