    Some elements of a mystery, some of a romance. This book features a main character that somehow manages to be naive and cynical at the same time. I did find the storyline of Good Sam very interesting, but the romance was just too much, too quickly for me. I guess I'm just not a romance kind of girl! This would be a good book to bring along on the beach. Relatively short and easy to digest, it should be a light enjoyable read that many will be able to finish in one sitting.

I did find the storyline of Good Sam very interesting, but the romance was just too much, too quickly for me. I guess I'm just not a romance kind of girl! This would be a good book to bring along on the beach. Relatively short and easy to digest, it should be a light enjoyable read that many will be able to finish in one sitting. Kate is used to covering the "bummer beat" for her station. She's who you see on TV when disaster strikes. It's what she's good at. When her boss lobs more of a feel good story her way, she's dismayed. She doesn't think this is the kind of story that'll lead. She can't deny that she finds it intriguing though... local residents have found bags of 100,000 dollars on their porch. Gifted anonymously, no one has any ideas where they came from or why. As more lives are changed for the better, the story explodes. The person dubbed "Good Sam" is famous without anyone knowing who he is! As expected, some people are eager to claim that the money came from them. They're all disproved, random people looking for praise and attention... until someone who actually has the means to gift large amounts of money comes forward. He even has proof. As for the romance... there's a couple of contenders for Kate's heart. She wrote off her ex months ago, but she's starting to look at him in a new light... which throws a wrench in her promising new flirtation with a handsome firefighter. Neither will stop her from pursuing this story. I received an ARC of this book from Net Galley and Lake Union Publishing, thank you! My review is honest and unbiased.

    What can I say....It was very interesting! With the whole Hidden Cash thing going on right now across the world this whole story just became so REAL. However, that begs the question that our character Kate had to answer....is it for attention???

As the story goes, someone is leaving a huge sum of money on the door steps of people around the city and news reporter, Kate Bradley, is assigned the job of finding out not only why, but who. A job she not only doesn't want in the beginning, but as the story progresses, a job that changes her life forever! Who would leave money on a front porch??? Kate I have to say is a hard character to like. I wanna like her, but then I wanna smack her upside the head. She's a love/hate kind of character....you love to hate her. She does some really stupid things. Lucky for her someone was there to save her from her stupidity, but still. Eric Hayes.....Oh how I love our man in uniform!!!! He is like the wounded puppy of this story. Blames himself for his brother's death and only wants to do good in the world. Its such a sweet little love story that he fell for Kate....I so loved that he was there in the river :) Then you have the Devil himself, Jack Hansen. He is just a work of art. Totally in it for himself. Everything thing he does is for himself. He has everyone, including Kate fooled. Anything to get you name out there. URGH!!!! With all the things happening Kate knows things aren't adding up roses and she smells a rat.....JACK!!!! After some digging......she finds the truth, but what she can run and what she can't will surprise you! The story runs on the News and even the Network picks it up. I don't wanna give away how it ends and it does...well kinda. Kate may have found what she needed but the story goes on. I would recommend this book to anyone!

    This book was a quick read but not a good one. Describing this book as a mystery is insulting to good mysteries. Calling it a romance makes me feel sad for people who think it is, there is no excitement between the characters at all. While I wasn't looking for 50 shades of gray in the characters' chemistry, theirs could be described as 1 shade of pale pink...or maybe just taupe. This book was a quick read but not a good one.

    A Wonderful "Comfort Read" You've heard of comfort food. Dete Meserve has created a "comfort read". "Good Sam" is a book that soothes the soul, with mystery, intrigue, and romance. The heroin reminds us that we are assaulted daily by news featuring mans inhumanity towards man. As a reporter she thrives on this sort of feature story. When assigned a story she thinks is too fluffy she tries to reject it.

But the story draws her in and we discover, along with her, that this story though the complete opposite of her usual feature, certainly isn't fluff. She becomes nearly obsessively intrigued as she investigates the mystery of mans humanity towards fellow man. I found it a refreshing; touching look at the heart of our society and it was enjoyable to hear about the kindness of others. This book gave me comfort and joy—knowing people are inherently good—by nature. We just have to have our hearts open to find it. I love this book!

    This is one of those laid back books that is fitting for a day of vacation where you want to read something that won’t truly pull your attention away from family time.

It was somewhat engaging but a little too easy to put down. It just never quite caught my attention enough when it came to the plot to make me want more. Kate is a reporter who prefers the nitty gritty side of life as opposed to the light lifestyle pieces. She’s not one of those reporters that could double as a beauty queen with big hair and a soft voice. Her ex-fiancé Jack is constantly finding ways to try to get back into her life, much to her chagrin, but it won’t deter her from her career. Neither will her Senator father. When she is given the scoop about someone giving random people $100K in cash, she’s less than thrilled to get a fluff piece. But as she digs deeper, she finds that things are not as they seem, especially when she meets handsome rescuer Eric. She never expects, however, to find herself at the center of the mystery and the scandal that ensues. Eventually she’ll have to make a choice she didn’t see coming.

    When TV news reporter, Kate Bradley, is assigned to the "soft" Good Sam story, she is annoyed at first, but then is quickly drawn into the mystery of it. Why would someone give $100K to 10 strangers? And, why would he/she wish to remain anonymous? "The greatest thing you can do is help others." This story was flirty and fun but had substance as well.

Whether you have read Good Sam or not I highly recommend the audio version. Also, if you have not yet discovered the value of becoming an audio book reader, you are missing out on a number of wonderful stories and storytellers. While I still prefer to hold a book in my hand, there are not enough hours in the day for me to experience the works of as many new and seasoned storytelling as I'd like. However, audio books allow me to enjoy the stories of many fabulous authors while I am walking, driving, or performing the myriad of mindless tasks that take place throughout the day.If you love romance and mysteries and are looking for a uplifting book, Good Sam is a great choice.

    I liked this book. I really did, but I just didn't love it. I love a story that has good versus evil and this story definitely did. I think that I really wanted it to be more about the good sam and the good works than about the love story. Okay, so needless to say, I loved part of the story. The love story portion was far to predictable to me. I had it figured out right away. Characters were good, half of the plot was great, the other so-so. I just wanted more, a less obvious storyline.

    What a gem! I read this book in one sitting, after having just finished a very hefty one. GOOD SAM had a charming storyline, a handsome love interest, and a very unique premise - who doesn't love the idea of a mystery that tries to discover who has done something good - instead of something awful? Loved it so much that I downloaded the sequel as soon as I was done. What a gem! I read this book in one sitting, after having just finished a very hefty one.

    Gripping story, reads like a movie Good Sam drew me in from the first page and I could not put it down. Dete Meserve weaves a tale filled with twists and turns that keep you guessing. Wonderfully descriptive with fascinating behind the scenes details of a TV news station, Good Sam blurs the line between personal and professional in the search for the truth. An uplifting page turner that reminds us to look for the good in the world, and ourselves.

    The plot of this book - a Good Samaritan who gives away hundreds of thousands of dollars to seemingly random people and the effect uncovering the truth has on a young reporter seemed like it would make an intriguing book. However, the writing and character development lacked depth. Luckily, it's a quick read. After making it halfway, I decided to bite the bullet and finish the book. The second half was better, but not by much.

    A enthralling story about goodness! Who is this person who is giving people $100,000 anonymously? Kate Bradley is a TV reporter and is used to getting the Bummer Beat news stories...fires, floods, beatings, gang activity. But her assignment boss gives her this goody two-shoes story. And her life changes. The Good Sam story takes off. She meets Eric Hayes, a fearless fire fighter, and her ex-fiance comes back into her life. Again, who is this person who gives so much money away????

    This was an easy at a go kind of a read. Storyline was definitely different, giving an altruistic slant to the read with a dash of mystery and investigation. The entire story is ideally about finding out the identity of 'Good Sam,' the Good Samaritan There are few niggles; the romance felt a bit off and I didn't care too much about the characters or writing.

The slight mystery going on put this book into a whole new genre for me. It wasn't just a romance but a great reminder that there are good people in this world. Kate is a great character, she is tough, strong and honest, exactly what a women should be (IMHO). The romance is very light. I think this was more about loss, deceit and strength than it was romance. It really makes my heart smile when the characters in a book get it right without all the drama, just because they are good people and know how people should be. The narration on this audiobook was fabulous! This was my 1st Laurel Schroeder but we not be my last. I think she captured Kate perfectly and did a great job on the male characters, so good I really never thought about the narrator being a female when she was reading for the males and I usually do. I'm very picky about female to male and vice versa! If you like a book that drags you in from page one and leaves your heart a little lighter, this is a book for you!!

The author is obviously well-grounded in the world in which her characters live. Good Sam gives the reader an insider’s perspective of what goes on behind the scenes of TV news and the ways the media can influence our thoughts and feelings about the world around us. However, since the world we live in is not all good, Meserve gives a slice of betrayal to spice up the story and keep us guessing. But wait, it’s not all mystery, Meserve also delivers romance with plenty of heart.

Although this story seems a bit contrived, I was touched by the integrity and the valiant acts of heroism demonstrated by Eric Hayes, captain of the fire department search and rescue team. Typically I’d give a story such as this one three stars, but because it was heartfelt and generated a few tears as I read it, I thought that it deserved the four star designation. However, before this book is released for final publication, it needs a thorough edit, as there were a few grammatical errors in the text.

    If you like Nicholas Sparks books, then you will definitely enjoy Good Sam. It has the same emotional touchpoints of a Sparks book yet with a compelling mystery that will keep you guessing until the end. I fell in love with Eric Hayes and was completely absorbed in Kate Bradley's journey to find good in the world. Definitely recommend.

    Honesty triumphs over deceit in Good Sam If you like romance mixed in with a mystery the Good Sam will surely be a must read.. A TV reporter seeks the truth even at the risk of losing her career and the possibly someone she loves. Some of our TV newscasters today could use the lesson that the viewing audience expects and deserves the truth in the stories reported,

There seems to be no strings, and no clues as to the Good Samaritan doing this. Kate and others refer to this person giving these gifts as “Good Sam”. Some of the people who are the recipients are very needy of this, and there are a few that are very wealthy. As Kate and her crew searches for clues and facts, it becomes very apparent that “Good Sam” does indeed know Kate. Soon Kate is getting personal letters from someone who is claiming to be “Good Sam”, and wants to meet with her in person. Is everything what it seems to be, and does everyone seem to be who they say they are? There are twists and turns, and ups and downs in this story. This was a wonderful page-turner, and I read this in one sitting. I highly recommend this novel to readers who enjoy an exciting and unpredictable novel.

Surprisingly, it seems that the random act of doing “good” is capturing as much media attention as all the bad things that usually dominate the news. I enjoyed the unique storyline and the wonderful characters in GOOD SAM and look forward to reading the next Kate Bradley mystery, PERFECTLY GOOD CRIME.
