Review policy


First we want to make it clear that we are NOT professional reviewers….We do this for FUN. We do this because WE LOVE BOOKS and we do this for FREE!

We love to read and we love discovering books that we never would have known about if we had not started Orchard Book Club. That being said our reviews are based solely on the reviewers thoughts and feelings (and sometimes random musings) about the books they read. Reading is a personal experience, and we will talk about what we loved, liked, hated or anything that might have irritated us about the story and/or characters. Our reviews are very honest and we will not compromise our integrity as a book club by writing a review that is dishonest to our actual feelings towards the book. We will rarely post a review “trashing” a book, we’d rather NOT post a review at all at that point. The ONLY time we will post a review on a book we completely dislike is if we are obligated to.

We will post our reviews on the following pages

and anywhere else our authors would like us to post

  1. I like yor club. I like your policies. I have a sexy. romantic crime thriller set in the heart of wine country for you if you’re interested.

    Sonoma Knight: The Goat-Ripper Case is a fast, fun read about wine & cheese & murder. I’d be pleased to gift your members e-books if they’d enjoy reading RIPPER.

    All reviews and mentions are valid. Please feel free to express yourself. Life is too short, otherwise. THANKS. Please let me know what works for you. – Peter Prasad

    1. Hi Peter

      Thank you

  2. Ladies, thanks so much for your positive reply. My gardenia is so close to coming your way. Goat-Ripper being formatted now. I found a VanGogh to add inside. And, surprise, it’s not about goat cheese at all. That’s a red herring, but food for thought.

  3. On my treadmill at the gym the other day, I got the history of Cockney rhyming slang. Does a dictionary for such exist? Used in tweets, it might confuse the ‘minders. We’re all paranoid (or just annoyed) beyond yonder pond.

  4. Hello fellow blogger,
