Demetra Iliopoulo's review of If the Viscount Falls by Sabrina Jeffries

 

Now, I'm not special, it looks like she copies and pastes from several reviews, except for The Arrow, where she basically just copied my whole review, she seems to only take a couple sentences from here and there.

 

I had a friend on Goodreads alert me to the plagiarism she did from my Lethal Consequences review and I appreciated it so much. It's nice to know that other reviewers have your back. I thought I would pass it along that this is someone to watch out for. She has a decent amount of friends and gets likes on her reviews (well, the Frankenstein reviews she cobbles together) so she is getting credit for other's words.

 

Someone else commented on one of her reviews about being plagiarized again, so she seems to be aware and not care. I guess the point of this post is just to try to alleviate some of my frustration (I know others have had this problem, I feel your pain and commiserate), let others know so they can check to see if she copied them, and maybe shame her into stopping her actions. 

 

Does Goodreads do anything about this if you alert them?
