    1 thought on “Ding Dong! Is She Dead?

    1. For a debut novel this was quite a good story with an intricate plot full of lots of complex characters and a fair amount of mystery.I was really baffled though by all the readers who proclaimed this was humorous (the cover sure "looks" like it is comedic story)r me it was anything but funny. A woman who has to go into witness protection because she did the right thing by reporting a crime she witnessed and then yet again gets herself involved in a horrific situation by helping a battered woman [...]

    2. Jennifer Smith witnesses 2 men trying to lift another man into the back of a car and the next thing she knows she has become Allie Foster and has moved to Texas to begin a new life. She begins work as a Nova Lady and when she goes to deliver products to her friend Megan she finds her life once again upside down.Megan's husband, Mike, works for the Sheriff's department and has been physically abusing her. Allie vows to keep Megan and her daughter, Sally, safe and find her own life once again in d [...]

    3. How refreshing to find a book about strong sensible capable women.When Allie starts a new career selling Nova cosmetics, she is looking for a way to earn a better living while helping other women find financial independence. She had no idea how involved she would become in another woman’s life. After two months of selling cosmetics, Allie had a customer base and even made a few new friends. The grit of the story begins when Allie makes a delivery to her new friend Megan’s house and finds the [...]

    4. A Thrilling DramaI was very happy to have found this book, a fast paced cat and mouse drama involving domestic violence (which is never a happy subject). The central character, Allie, is instantly likeable, having fled a lonely existence in New York to start a new life in the country, setting up her own business selling cosmetics and introducing women to independence.On the day she discovers her friend badly beaten by a violent husband, she knows she cannot leave things - even if she risks her o [...]

    5. It's not easy being a NOVA Lady's not so much the door-to-door life that has Allie on the move. This is a woman who seems to face more than her share of 'wrong place, wrong time' situations--like witnessing a murder while taking out the garbage at her day job when her name was Jennifer not Allie!. Witness protection is supposed to get her out of trouble, but all that changes when Allie makes a NOVA delivery to a friend. Allie finds her friend, Megan, badly beaten. The two of them are soon swept [...]

    6. I received a free review copy of Ding dong! Is She Dead? NOVA Ladies Adventures, Book #1, by Alathia Paris Morgan, and, based on the title, anticipated that it would be a humorous mystery. As both a mystery and a humor fan, I particularly like when an author is able to effectively combine the two. I wasn’t completely disappointed. The story of Jennifer Smythe, a big city girl who works in a bar who witnesses two men disposing of a corpse and ends up as Allie working in a department store in ru [...]

    7. When I just picked up “Ding Dong is She Dead” I thought at first that it would be a sort of a chick-lit mystery, but I was very pleasantly surprised to discover a very serious topic at the center of the story – domestic violence and finding one’s courage to stand up to it. Allie is a new girl in town, hiding her real identity under the witness protection program. However, as if witnessing one crime wasn’t enough, she soon finds herself in even more trouble, after she finds her client M [...]

    8. OK. So obviously, people who rated this book knew the author OR were Avon representatives. This is NOT a four or five-star book in any way, shape or form! I ordered this book because I thought it sounded good and was fooled by the ratings. It's self-published and the author unfortunately did NOT have an editor look it over. If I hadn't bought it, I would have tossed it aside very quickly due to the ENORMOUS amount of grammatical errors throughout the book and I mean ENORMOUS. Incomplete sentenc [...]

    9. Megan has been beaten by her husband and left seriously hurt. Allie, her Nova Lady and friend, stops by, sees what has happened, and takes her to the hospital. Allie is there for her as she comes to terms with what the future has in store for her. I liked Allie. She's got a lot of problems of her own but she still goes out of her way to help others. These are good characters. While domestic violence is not a pleasant topic, it is handled very well here. I liked how this book shows the emotional, [...]

    10. When I saw the title "Ding Dong! Is she dead?" I thought, this book is going to be a bit comical. I couldn't have been more wrong. The author did an astounding job touching on domestic violence Creating a character named Allie who grew up in Foster care, going from home to home, which made her strong-willed and independent. Never knowing what it was like for someone to actually care for her or love her Allie decides to change careers. She is now a Nova lady, selling cosmetics door to door. When [...]

    11. I have to admit to getting VERY frustrated while reading this book. I can't understand the four and five star ratings at all. There was obviously little or no editing done to this book, as it was filled with errors: there were TONS of incomplete sentences, nearly every new sentence was a separate paragraph, a lot of the sentences that weren't just fragments were run-on sentences, there were a multitude of apostrophe misuses, etc. The idea behind the story, spotlighting domestic abuse, is a good [...]

    12. Great Start To A New SeriesDon’t be fooled by the fun title, this is a serious story about domestic abuse. The main character Jennifer is in Witness Protection after observing two men hiding a body in the trunk of a car. She is moved to Texas where she changes her name to Allie and begins a new life. After working at the mall for two years, she meets a member of Nova Ladies. They sell cosmetics door to door. Allie decides to become a Nova Lady and finds out she is a natural. Life is great unti [...]

    13. I do not usually read a lot of mystery and humor so together I was nicely surprised! Alathia did a great job at creating realistic characters that you could easily identify with. The story line is has a wonderful twist and shows the troubled life of a young lady who happens to find herself in situations beyond her control. The humors of the story are very tasteful and I think I love Sally the most! Although, not the main character, Sally has seen the worst in life she is given the chance to see [...]

    14. An unusual blend. The style and feel is that of a cozy mystery but the subject matter of domestic violence was heavier than I expected to find within frothy, light hearted prose and to my mind the story was more of a thriller than a mystery.Allie, A successful Nova Lady (similar to an Avon Lady for UK readers) is usually concerned with make-up tips and gossip. She comes across Megan and her daughter Sally victims of domestic violence and supports them as they leave the family home. Suffice to sa [...]

    15. Allie thought she had problems until she finds her new friend Megan stretched out on her bathroom floor. My initial thought was that she was dead and there would follow a mystery and murder investigation but the author cleverly went in a completely different direction and right away I was hooked. Megan's husband turns out to be the culprit and by helping Megan with her situation, Allie takes on way more than she at first bargained for. Not only is Mike a bad apple but he's also a cop, which grea [...]

    16. I had no problem assigning Ding Dong! Is she dead? five stars. The narrative is clear and concise at moving forward the well thought out plot. The pace was steady and I thoroughly enjoyed the dialogue.Allie, the main character life changes the minute she becomes a Nova Lady and from there the reader is taken along with her story. Relationships are examined and domestic abuse is there, but it's believable and central to the plot. Humour plays a part and it is executed perfectly.I am glad the book [...]

    17. I don't think Allie really likes to have a helping hand especially from Justin at times, “just so you know Justin, I will manage to get into your truck all by myself next time. There will no need for your ‘assistance’.” Allie proclaimed with embarrassment as she realized he had firmly cupped her butt to assist her into the truck." Justin really was a sweetheart, “I can take care of that problem. Taking you on a date I mean, the offer is still good.” Justin grinned as he realized Alli [...]

    19. Captivating Story of Domestic ViolenceI liked this book from the first line of dialog. The author has done an excellent job of fleshing out characters and maintaining several story lines. The way she delivers the story is refreshing and keeps you interested. Even though it is a work of fiction, I would recommend it to anyone in a similar situation because right along with all the ugly aspects of the horrors of domestic violence, it delivers a positive message to abuse survivors. For a first nove [...]

    20. This book was okay. The concept was good. However, the dialogue was very stilted. The characters were unemotional to the point of being robotic. Unfortunately, the seriousness of domestic violence is downplayed so much you feel like it was just a stubbed toe to get over. At one point the antagonist is injured and hospitalized. This is a major plotline and you have to assume his injuries were caused by a car accident that left the heroine unhurt but for some soreness.I received the book free for [...]

    21. Is She dead? actually has some strong female characters, which is rare in fiction. We often find ourselves screaming "don't open that door!" well not with Allie! She actually listens to the police and works hard to protect those she loves. We need more fictional characters like this. I could only give it 3* cause it needed just a bit more polishing in the proof reading area. Otherwise, a fun read.

    22. **SPOILER FREE****WARNING** Can be a sensitive subject!Completely amazed with this book! Not at all what I was thinking going in. The characters and plot of this story can really hit home with what really goes on or can happen. I found myself turning the pages faster than I realized. Found that I was completely lost in the story. Well written. Very impressed with the works of this author!*Received for an honest review*

    23. I truly enjoyed this story that grabbed you from the beginning. It gives you a sense of what women go through in regards to domestic violence. With this story, you get involved so much that you really want to kick the villain in the you-know-where. This is not a subject that many authors will address in a romantic suspense story as it is categorized as. Well done and I will be reading more by this author.

    24. A good mystery/psychological thriller with some strong female characters and important issues tackled.Allie life is changed more than once - witness protection and risking a different kind of employmentl to the good.Things get messy, people she cares about are in danger andOverall, a good story for those who enjoy this genre.

    25. A quick beach read. Characters were emotionally deprived. Neither allie or Megan had family, and didn't seem to understand a normal relationship. It was suspenseful enough to be interesting but fairly predictable.

    26. I will have to say I definitely loved this book.I loved my adventure with Allie.Thank you to the Author for doing what you do for us readerswill definitely be watching for more of your books.

    27. I must say I wasn't sure about the book. But this is a cleverly written, entertaining story. And it has several great messages smack dab in the middle. A touchy subject is handled exceptionally well in this fine start to a series.

    28. Ding Dong! Is She Dead? Is the first book in the Nova Ladies Adventures series. The premise is interesting, featuring a woman hiding in the witness protection program who starts anew in a small Texas town. Allie becomes a Nova Lady (think Avon Lady), delivering little packages of cosmetic happiness to the women of the town, but her new life changes drastically when she arrives at the home of her friend to find her beaten senseless by her police officer husband. I enjoyed the book and I believe t [...]
