    1. As a fan of Alternate History literature I was in my element reading Elizabeth Newton s imaginative and provocative tale of those tragic events on that mind numbing day, November 22, 1963, But that s merely the capstone on which this fine story is based it is the aftermath rendered in richly human terms that makes this story so original and compelling It s a special writers gift to take a much vilified anti hero and inexorably, page by page, rehabilitate him into a most sympathetic and admirable [...]

    2. I really appreciated this book because it presented a few great concepts we don t see too often After the sudden passing of her husband Livvy has a bit too much time on her hands Not wanting to hang around her children she is looking for things to do Just spending time with her girl friends is not enough Helping choose a mother of the bride dress fell to me I thought I had lucked out After all what could be so complicated about finding an appropriate dress for a winter wedding I sat with Judy fo [...]

    3. A Novel Ripe with Life and the Question of What Might Have BeenA funny thing happened to me as I was reading this novel I became a convert, at least for this author I ll be honest I don t go out of my way to read romantic novels, novels where the main characters are in their twilight years, or conspiracy novels Newton shattered all my thoughts on these types of novels I loved her book Let me say that again I loved her book.As I began to read, Newton convinced me that a romance novel does not hav [...]

    4. OK, cards on the table I m a massive JFK conspiracy fan So I approached this intrigued would Elizabeth Horton Newton be able to pull off a new slant on the massive Kennedy assassination scene And I think she has What starts as a weird hybrid of middle aged romance cum road trip, turns into a paranoid thriller in the style of The Parallax View, and gets faster and faster to a breathless denouement.Full marks also for accurate descriptions of spies tradecraft Loved it.

    5. The assassination of JFK is fertile ground for conspiracy theories and Horton Newton does a great job of painting that in this story, which for genre we shall have to say is a thriller romance whodunnit that for the most part moves at a lively pace The opening is shaded nicely except for authorial comments which kept creeping in, foreshadowing the events to come, and I found those annoying Yes, it s a bit of a technical nitpick as a writer, but the mood was coming along nicely stormy night, dark [...]

    6. This was a very clever tale filled with twists and turns that you think you are able to predict, but you somehow come up short each time I enjoyed getting to know the main characters and felt that there was always something else going on with them, and was anxious to find out the truth.The conspiracy angle, combined with the growing depth of the relationship between the two main characters, kept me interested and wanting to learn I rooted for Livvy each step of the way as she reached outside he [...]

    7. View from the Sixth Floor is an amazing read It starts out a story about loving, kind people in their twilight years, looking out and caring for one another, but accelerates rapidly into an incredibly adrenalin fuelled ride that one could never have imagined these characters embarking on in the first few pages of easy going, homespun delight These characters Olivia and Bill are wonderful to read Through the superb writing talent of Elizabeth Horton Newton their lives leap from the page and capti [...]

    8. I have to admit I wasn t sure what to expect from this book initially Firstly I m not American, so my knowledge of JFK s assassination is fairly limited, and I was born 20 years after it happened, so although I obviously know a little about the subject, it s not something I m terribly familiar with I guess I thought I was going to be reading a book that is fairly politically heavy, perhaps focusing on the government or members of congressmething like that So I was very surprised and, if I m hone [...]

    9. A view from the sixth floor is a first novel by Elizabeth Horton Newton This book is very cleverly constructed to give the reader an optimal reading experience The book begins as a seemingly homey tale of two senior citizens in a small North Carolina town.Olivia Roberts has lived quietly in the same town for years with her husband George Their neighbor Bill is a quiet man who becomes George s best friend and confidant When George passes away, Olivia turns to their neighbor Bill for help and supp [...]

    11. I have the distinct memory of sitting on the living room floor, bl wh tv is on and my mum is ironing with tears running down her face Baffling at 7 years old, but i do remember.Now i think its a disgrace that the government at the time thought that they could so easily pull the wool over the nations eyes, with the theory that Oswald was the lone shooter of Kennedy.Hmmmm, would that fly these days, i don t think so.This is a book of what if An alternative option written in fiction form Olivia is [...]

    12. Elizabeth Horton Newton is an amazing story teller This book is written in the first person and once you are into the first few pages you almost feel as if you are listening to someone in the room with you, and within a short time she is someone you really care about I remember well the actual events of that November but after reading this book I am left with so many what ifs that I find myself thinking about these people frequently I have gone back and read it a second time, and then I have gon [...]

A feel good suspense novelAttracted by the interesting cover and curious about a plot that would overturn much of what we know about the Kennedy assassination, I left a comment online to the author, and to my surprise, she sent the book to me as a gift Not an avid reader of romantic novels, I was delighted to find myself all wrapped up in the View from the Sixth Floor The fluid writing, the arresting images, the plot that gripped and held me, and the beautiful love story, made it a feel good boo [...]

    17. One Thursday after school six of us teens met up outside the Gaumont in Cheltenham With the exuberance of youth we giggled our way in to watch The Village of the Damned, a film adaptation of John Wyndham s science fiction novel, The Midwich Cuckoos I was mad keen on science fiction and eager to see the film and to hold the hand of Elaine surname withheld to protect our blushes Sadly, Colin wasn t so keen on the film and might have imbibed too much under age cider He kept tickling the girls eithe [...]

    20. The premise of this book was good, although I had a pretty good idea of the big reveal early in the book But the book was very slow to get there and then never really delivered It was way too vague in the details of the conspiracy, maybe on purpose as Bill didn t want Olivia to know, but it left me hanging and slightly bored.I probably would have given this book three stars, but it badly needed a proofreader There were almost no commas in the entire book and it really interrupted the flow of sen [...]

    21. This is a really entertaining book, quite different from what I have read before The heroine in the story is 60 ish and yes it is a romance story, too I thought that would have put me off, after all aren t the main characters supposed to be young Well no, as it happens, why should they Olivia was a great character that went through an incredible experience.The story is an alternative view what if Lee Harvey Oswald, who shot the American President in 1963, didn t die It s a great thriller, with l [...]

    25. This was a great read I m not into conspiracy theories, and tend to stay away from romance type stories, so the fact this managed to suck me in shows what a great job the author did weaving this tale together Olivia and Bill make a great couple I d like to say , but I m afraid of giving away the plot There s some secrets in this story, let me tell you All in all, this was a fun read and I look forward to reading from Elizabeth Horton Newton.

    27. Since the assassination of John F Kennedy in 1963, countless conspiracy theories have emerged Many of them center around the fact that Lee Harvey Oswald was, at the very least, not the lone gunman Looking into it myself, I have read that some even claim the fatal shot was fired accidentally by one of JFK s own bodyguards Regardless of what actually happened that fateful day, November 22, 1963, it doesn t change the fact that America lost one of its most memorable presidents It also doesn t chang [...]

    29.
