    I enjoyed this book. It took me a while to get into it but once I did I liked it. I didn't realize that it was a non-liner series of vignettes but it actually really works. I would love to read more of Betty!

    This was a first reads giveaway. I loved the intelligent, sexualized, powerful Betty and the characters surrounding her. The plot was excellent and the story moved I couldn't put it down. I am looking forward to the next book. I recommend it.

    I have a new action heroine! Betty's personal life is a convoluted mess but she sure can handle herself in the dangerous world of espionage and terrorism. This book was a quick and easy read filled with lots of action, tangled scenarios and a touch of humor. No doubt there are more adventures in her future and I am looking forward to them. I won a copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway for this honest review.

    Won this book through a Goodreads giveaway. Right up my alley, the story is about an evil cabal, love, and feisty, horny undercover spies. Given all that, what's not to like? Well-written, the characters and storyline were compelling enough to keep me entertained. While I generally like a less disjointed approach to narrative, the style fit within the framework of the action-driven thriller-diller. I should mention that I actually laughed out loud more than a couple times. Yes, this is unusual a Won this book through a Goodreads giveaway.

Mahler and Goodreads for making me feel like a winner!

    This is a very interesting book beginning with a young couple planning to marry, meeting the other's families and living together and then switches to more of an espionage situation, with the young couple being involved with others and their families getting involved in illicit activities, etc. The plot is a little hard to follow at times, but then seems to flow back together and connects. The ending leaves quite a bit to be desired as it seems to just "drop off", but apparently there is another This is a very interesting book beginning with a young couple planning to marry, meeting the other's families and living together and then switches to more of an espionage situation, with the young couple being involved with others and their families getting involved in illicit activities, etc. The plot is a little hard to follow at times, but then seems to flow back together and connects. The ending leaves quite a bit to be desired as it seems to just "drop off", but apparently there is another volume which will pick up where this one leaves off. It was a good read, but just not what I expected at the beginning of the book. I did finish it, however, as I dislike starting a book and not finishing it. Keep up the good work AJ.

    "Money" is one of the most intriguing books that I have read in a while. The mysteries in Betty's life draw you into her world. You are always on the edge of your seat wanting to know what will be happening next - will she find love, will she complete her missions successfully, who can she trust, and does she concur her demons. I can't wait to see if any of my questions get answered in the next book. This book is a must read.

    Betty is a confident, brave, and tough lady that we wish we could be like. Really enjoyed this story and since it was mainly located in Washington D.C. I knew everywhere they were and have been to a lot of those places myself. I really enjoyed the love story as well with Betty and Tom and hope they get back together, but guess I will have to read the next story to find out.

    I want to be Betty! She is flawed and guilty of all the things we face in real life. But she deals with it and comes out fighting! Can't wait to read more of her espionage adventures, personal conflicts, and mishaps in her love life in the next book.

    Action packed, with lots of winding roads that you have no idea where they will lead you! I love the way it is setup, and jumps time periods. It is still easy to follow. Wonderfully interesting read. I am very thankful to have won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway!

    While waiting for Control The Betty Chronicles, the author was kind enough to send the first and second book in the series. Money is the first. Betty Thurston has her life planned out with her soon to be fiance' Tom. However the war intervenes and they get sidetracked. Betty becomes a terrorist fighter working for Tom. She is strong woman and a great spy. She does whatever the job needs. Her life is anything but easy. This read is based on true facts with embellishment. Thanks to Goodreads.

    I like the way Betty handles herself through all the complications in her life. I would read anything AJ Mahler writes and I can't wait to read book 2 in the Betty Chronicales.

    I did like the thought of this story. It kept kinda far away from a plot line, just piecing together parts of different people's stories. I thought the author did a good job trying to play out the story in accordance with the style. But the way the timeline was thrown around and played with got me horribly confused at parts till I figured it out. Some chapters there aren't even hints at where in the story it happens. It made it very difficult to piece it all together. I did like the characters, a I did like the thought of this story.

It made it very difficult to piece it all together. I did like the characters, and thought that the lack of obvious description suited the spy theme very well. But making two characters with very similar names like Jil and Gil made it occasionally confusing. Especially when Gil was spelled Gill, like on page 200. Also, a pet peeve of mine. Gait and gate are two different things. People do not have a walking gate, they have a walking gait. *First Reads Won*

    The seemingly inexhaustible demand for hyper-sexual undercover spy women finds some degree of satisfaction with Betty Thurston, whose disarming beauty, dizzying intellect, and dismally woeful love-life are pitted against the sinister, far-reaching power of the elite world order - the Cabal organization. Mahler's enjoyable disjointed narrative, dynamic characters, and subtle humor make The Betty Chronicles a worthy addition to the spy thriller genre.

    I received this book via the Firstread Giveaways of Goodreads. It took me some time to get into this book and I also had difficulty to follow the timeline of it. But more I was reading and starting knowing the characters more I was getting use to writting and getting into it. I finally enjoy the story and I'm really happy that I push into it. Now I'm definitively putting the second book in my "want to read" list to follow the adventures of Betty :)

    Great strong female character. Liked the idea of Control, but could easily get out of control. I look forward to the next installment of Betty.
