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 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.”

Congratulations on a job VERY well done.”

“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!”
