What Are Other Readers Saying?

  • A debut novel that knocked my socks off. So well written and with a plot line and characters that drew me into the suspense and the relationships. I look forward to her next book release. ~ Lena D.
  • Writes like a seasoned weaver of suspense and intrigue. Fast, intense and captivating … memorable characters and plot lines that stay in your mind long after you’ve finished reading. ~ Elaine C.
  • Very cleverly crafted story … well written … fast paced and keeps the reader guessing until the end … Some of the characters, like Amelia, you wish you could invite into your own life and share a cup of tea while others provide lessons in greed, hate, love and forgiveness. The main character, Jill, is a great role model in learning to “live one’s faith.” This is a book that you won’t want to put down. ~ Sandra B.
