LAUGHS AND TEARS


The old men think they’re flying to Ireland to trace family history and to inherit a castle. It turns out quite differently.

It seems St Patrick was so busy chasing the snakes out of Ireland, he overlooked ridding the country of Tasmanian Tigers. Or did he?

Blokes in Donegal is book 4 in the funny Windy Mountain series but each novel has a new story.

If book 3, Whitey and the Six Dwarfs, left you wondering just what crazy things were happening over on the other side of the world, this book will enlighten and delight you.

THEY'RE LISTENING TO THE TOWN DRUNK NOW IN THIS FUNNY NOVEL!

No one believed him when he claimed to have been woken up by an extinct animal in a bus shelter in the middle of the night.

His new following is a problem for The Mayor who believes no one can tell him what he can or can't do with his apple orchard, even if some wacko claims Tasmanian Tigers have been seen there.

Comedy meets mystery in this quirky novel.

Who Knew The Tasmanian Tiger Eats Apples! is the first novel in the Windy Mountain Tasmanian Tiger series but it has a story all of its own and a satisfying ending.

The book is set in the early 1990s and takes a satirical dig at a small town and some small-minded officials.

The plot takes some quirky detours and you'll meet some quirky folk.

If you enjoy a dash of mystery with your laughs, you might just love this book.

READ WHAT OTHER READERS SAY

I ENJOYED THE book for its quirky, exaggerated characters and its satirical, tongue in cheek look at life in a small town.

WHAT MORE can you ask in a cast of characters? The story itself, a quick read, is light-hearted and humorous, and a good start to a series.

DIDN'T WANT to put it down ... the characters were colorful and fun! This is a quick read and enjoyable!

THERE ARE several stories going on in this book, all with humorous moments, and well developed characters. I gave it 4 stars only because I never read 5 star reviews.

I'M OFF TO read the second Windy Mountain book, Lie of the Tiger. The Thylacine lives!

IF YOU like your humour with a touch of mystery and quirky townsfolk, then you may also enjoy this story.

SOME OF the Australian slang was a little difficult to understand at first, but added to the flavor of the book.

THIS WAS a goofy, enjoyable book, a real change of pace from most books out there.

IT WASN'T until I got over halfway through that I started to appreciate that the author's humour was much subtler than I had initially given him credit for. And the ending was perfect. This is a book that rewards perseverance.

THIS WAS a really fun, easy, breezy read. The pacing moves along at a good clip. No meandering, dull exposition.


Who better than two ex-cons to catch a criminal!

The problem in this funny novel is no-one quite knows who the bad guy is.

All Joffa and Moose know is a villain is on the loose in Windy Mountain in this story where farce meets crime.

It starts escalating after a garden ornament goes missing.

As the new partners of the Tasmanian Tiger Museum, they get sucked into the mystery that ensues.

To make matters worse, they are incensed when the old owners reckon they have found an extinct Tasmanian Tiger in far-away Ireland. "We can't even find one in Tasmania! How did it get there? On the wing of their plane?"

Whitey and the Six Dwarfs is the fourth book in the Windy Mountain Tasmanian Tiger series, so it has some of the quirky characters people love -- but it has a story all of its own, a fast pace and a conclusive madcap ending.

Tempted? Read the sample!


WHAT READERS THINK OF OTHER BOOKS IN THE SERIES


Novel #1 Lie of the Tiger


TOUCHINGLY FUNNY: Great style of writing which engages and makes the book even more enjoyable. Character based, and likeable characters at that!

READ IT, laugh and then, like me, wait for the next instalment! I do hope that Mr Martin can write quickly.

LOTS OF TWISTS, turns, and humor spiced with bits of fun suspense thrown in to make this a very enjoyable read.

JOHN MARTIN'S forte is his funny, quirky characters and there is one around every corner of Windy Mountain.

THE CHARACTERS were off the cuff and a little out of the box. The interesting phrases that the men used in the book left me in stitches at times.

THE WRITING has a nice turn of phrase: "The waitress had blonde hair colouring that probably came from a bottle. She had a husky voice, which sounded like the result of smoking too many cigarettes and eating too much gravel." and "Since Gordo was the one with two good arms but a suspect brain, he drove where he was told" which really adds to the humour.

IT'S THE story of two funny old men and an Irishman trying to save a filthy and failing Tasmanian Tiger museum that is slated for destruction. Their schemes to save it are hilarious and their developing friendships are touching.

IN A ROMP OF mistaken identities, hidden agendas, lost loves, and a group of wacky townsfolk, Paddy, Wish-Wash, and Oodles give their lives new meaning.

JOHN MARTIN has a good grip on characters and their development, particularly the quirks. His writing rhythm is smooth and consistent. I laughed out loud enough that it makes me want to continue following his work.


Novel #2: Blokes on a Plane


IT READS like a comedy sketch. It's something a little different for me and it was entertaining. It's quirky, heartwarming and funny …

IT IS AN understatement to say that nothing is as it seems. Another raucous story from John Martin.


The prequel: Who Knew Tasmanian Tigers Eat Apples!



DIDN'T WANT to put it down … the characters were colorful and fun! This is a quick read and enjoyable!

THERE ARE several stories going on in this book, all with humorous moments, and well developed characters.
