Kate James “Such a pleasure to read a book that grips your heart and takes you away from the first pages. Kate hit this one out of the park with her intense character and scenery development. A perfect read for either on the beach or in front of a warm fire. My only question - When will we see her next book? I can't wait.”

“I had to make time to send my views on your writing. With the suspense and level of excitement, the book is a winner. Each page subconsciously kept me wondering what comes next. I feel that you have reached out to a wide readership. If it is possible to keep this tempo in all your books, I would want to read your next book and so on. I will certainly recommend Silver Linings to my friends.”

“What a wonderful book! I started reading it last night and I am already on Chapter 7. Had I not had to get up in the morning, I would have kept going! The way you write is so descriptive and—let me tell you—I’m likin’ Ben a whole lot! The story line is captivating and you make it so that I can’t wait to see what’s about to happen next. Congratulations on a job VERY well done.”

"Thoroughly enjoyed reading Silver Linings. Character development is exceptional, particularly given the level of fine writing skills of Ms. James. Enjoy the beauty of this escape novel. "

“Kate James has written a marvelous book! The character development is great and the locale of St. Lucia jumps off the pages at you! This is an author who knows her way around that island. You can let yourself be carried away and watch her characters unfold in a tropical paradise, one filled with the sights, sounds and smells that you continually experience as you turn page after page. You feel as if you're there with the characters Kate has written about - you're sad when they are sad and you celebrate when they do! You'll want to tak a winter holiday down to St. Lucia after reading this!”
