    This is an 'OH MY GOD' book

    Seeds of Vengeance is definetely an 'OH MY GOD' book. As the reader gets deeper into the book you find yourself saying 'OH MY GOD', next page, 'OH MY GOD', turn the page again, 'OH MY GOD'. I have the entire series of Kendall mysteries and am always begging for more. With each new Kendal mystery, I go back and re-read all of them, Deadly Sanctuary, The Devil's Cradle, Dark Moon Crossing and enjoy them all over again. Sylvia has the gift for writing.

    Kendall's fourth and best

    What a ride Seeds of Vengeance took me on. It brought out emotions in me that I forgot I had. So many of the events were cliffhangers but the scene in the old ice house left me spellbound with my hands clutched to the book. It guided me into the previous characters in Kendall¿s adventures then moved forward to the new adventure with more intriguing and well-developed characters. I feel like the storyline had even more chills and thrills than the previous adventures if that`s at all possible. Just when things get tense Nobel injects humor. The surprise meeting among Kendall, Tally, her fiancé, and Grant, her ex-fiancé is off the wall hilarious. Whenever Ginger, her friend and co-worker, enter into the picture she brings me laughter and good feelings. She is priceless. The eloquence in which this book glides me through Arizona¿s landscapes and sky formations allures me back to revisit this fabulous country. Upon finishing the book I paged though it to remind me how cleverly the clues were snuggled into the story. What a challenge Nobel put me through while reading Vengeance. My mind struggled to figure out what character was the culprit. It see-sawed from one to another only to find out that I was outsmarted in the end. It¿s incredible the trouble Kendall can get herself into. Just when I think she does it all she gets herself into a bigger mess and takes me on another unforgettable rocky ride with her..

    Won't Kendall O'Dell ever learn?

    Another snappy, dialogue-driven novel by mystery thriller writer, Sylvia Nobel, kept this reader glued to her favorite reading chair and her family dinnerless! The book's character twists were equally riveting and gruesome. Ms. Nobel shows love for her home state through her rich descriptions of Arizona's landscapes. Bring on book number five, Sylvia!

    Good light reading

    I am a little embarrassed to say that I read all 4 in the series. The character is cute and the stories flow well but the books are pretty corny and the endings always disappoint. If you are looking for entertaining pulp, they'll get you through a few nights without tv.

    This is my first time reading Sylvia Nobel but it definitely won

    This is my first time reading Sylvia Nobel but it definitely won’t be the last time I read one of her books.  I thoroughly enjoyed every page!  This is a mystery that will grab the reader from the beginning and not let go until the last page.  I found myself reading in my car at lunch time, and late at night just to get a few more pages read.  Character development was excellent, although I would have liked to see more interactions between the main character, Kendall and her friend Ginger – Ginger could have been a lot of fun.  Subplots were also well developed and kept the reader entertained.  I do have to say I figured out the villain quickly and there were not many red herrings tossed out to disguise it.  The descriptions of the Arizona landscape were vivid and I could feel myself there and imagine the surrounds exactly as described.  Even with me figuring out the “bad guy” I still enjoyed this book immensely!  In fact, I am anxious to begin another Sylvia Noble book.

    This is a wonderful who done it.  It keeps you guessing and wanting more right up to the end.  
    It is written in such a way that you feel like you are right there with the characters.
    Great read.

    I rate the book 3 stars

    I enjoyed the book very much. It had a little bit of everything. There was somewhat of a love triangle. You really do not know what happens until the end and that held my interest. There was adventure, The characters in the book seemed very real. I thought it was a very good mystery.

    interesting characters!

    A true mystery until the end, and the various twists and turns of the story kept you captivated. You didn't know which direction Kendall would go until near the end. A good read.

    more from this reviewer

    I *really* enjoyed this book - way more than I expected I would.

    I *really* enjoyed this book - way more than I expected I would. The plot is strong and the writing is stronger. I was hooked from the first page and sad when the story ended. Having grown up in SW NM, many of the places mentioned in the book were familiar to me which added a layer of interest for my personal enjoyment. But the book is great overall and I highly recommend it! I can't wait to get the first three books in the Kendall O'Dell series.

    Good Read

    I really enjoy these series as I have been living in Arizona just for a short time. I read her first book before moving here and now that I am here, her descriptions of the area are spot on. I also love a good mystery with interesting characters. She blends the mysteries with a little history and I feel engrossed while reading. This is a nice "getaway" read.

    Another Classic Tale

    As always, I am exhausted after reading this installment concerning the actions and foibles of this intrepid, small-town newspaper reporter with a penchant for self-imposed pickles, wjhich she routinely gets herself into and then exacerbates her dire situations through her quick and often incorrect decisions. But in all, it's a fun story, full of (literally, in this case) cliffhangers and plot twists, with its usual cast of characters to support her eventual triumphs, and the new characters introduced to form those plots. Can't wait to read the next of Kendall's adventures, and see who she puts in jeopardy next!
