Want to do a review swap for my childrens book

After shifting a ton of books during free promo I have got two bad reviews, as well as two good ones, so I thought I would try this strategy for my children’s book Mystery of Smugglers Cove.

I am willing to review a book in exchange for mine, but there isn't any use if we both give bad reviews. Therefore, I want you to read my sample and for me to read your sample so we both think that we can be of some help and give a good review. Ie, I'm not going to do a review with someone who just writes horror and as such gives my book a 1 just because they don't like my genre.

If interested, send me an email and give me a link to your book. If I think it will be for me then I will swap the mobi. file with other person.

Premise: When twelve year old Joe Mitchell, along with his two younger sisters, visits Smugglers Cove for the summer holidays, they get caught up in a thrilling adventure that is beyond their wildest imagination.

Any questions, email me.

What you propose is a review swap and there isn't much different about it. Readers never appreciate this and many can spot it quickly.

Beyond that, I see only one negative review on your linked book anyway.

I changed the 'rules', what I want is someone who likes the genre that I write.

Even if they are not an author but like my book, I am happy and they can give whatever review they want. I've submitted to book blogs and so on but they take ages.
