    One thought on “The Amber Trail”

    1. Cleverly thought out, somewhat unrealistic at times - but it’s an adventure story, so I know plausibility is not necessarily the main criteria! It certainly has lots of action - it grabbed me almost from the beginning. A great effort for a debut novel. I will look forward to reading more of this author's work.

    2. When Dig Buckley’s father dies unexpectedly, he and his brother have to take the reins at their family’s successful brewery. Unfortunately, a unique ingredient in their beer comes from a special type of hops, which are only available in India. Supplies are running low, and the Indian business connection was maintained exclusively by their father. So Dig volunteers to travel west (from Australia) and secure the hops.Dig is a likable character with little worldly knowledge. The trip to India i [...]

    3. *I received a copy of the book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.**4.5 Stars*I really liked the story in this book!It was exciting and had some nice plots into it.Some parts I would have liked to be more extensive,but overall the story was good.And I liked the writing style.Would like to read more from M.J. Kelly in the future!

    4. A quick read and a fun unique plot. Genuine inventiveness of plot and the nice early Cohen Brothers-esque menace and pacing along with an echo of Michael Crichton. Takes a day or so to read and is more a novella than a full novel but in all honesty if you start it you are going to finish it. Plot holes be damned, it was fun.

    5. Wasps and beers and opium oh my! This is a short book that is full of adventure, a couple of messed up families and a tear across India. This is a straight to the point book that I really enjoyed reading.

    6. A fun adventure novel that was easy to read and hard to put down. Definitely worth a read. A solid and entertaining debut from MJ Kelly.

    7. I received a free copy via Netgalley in exchange for a honest review.This is a good Novella that I just could not put down.The action just kept moving and as long as you do not take it to seriously is a really good read.I would certainly read more from this author.

    8. Absolute awesome read, great story line, could not put the book down, massive thumbs up, looking forward to reading more M.J.Kelly books

    9. A good debut novel. An interesting plot that's a break from the norm. Easy reading with a catchy story that makes you want to keep reading.

    10. Started well but lots of it wasn't very believable, and the author lost me at the end when the protagonist smuggled plants into Australia from India. I know, sounds very authoritarian of me, but this can't be a good idea quarantine-wise. I live in the country, so I care about plant diseases.
