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.

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

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 ...more

"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!

I won this book from the first reads giveaways and I am so excited to read it. Thanks.

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

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 :)
