My Mom and others passionate about this book are right that I’d appreciate it tremendously. Without animals, it wasn’t a tearjerker for me, nor did it show Heaven’s final domain. What it does entail is valuable. I admire the author’s brave interpreta ...more

I adore Juliet Blackwell’s work. I have two polite protests: (1) Never release an “e-book” only. It’s inaccessible to fans dedicated to print! I want the story in which Lily Ivory & Melanie Turner meet. (2) Romance should sit on the furthest back ...more

It may not be award-winning literature but Kaitlyn Dunnett's storytelling and writing keep her plots trotting along evenly. Detail is never to excess, nor do we lack insight into characters. It’s best to show feelings rather than physical tedium. I d ...more

Excellent writing does not go hand in hand with good storytelling. I consider gifted writing a treat. In the end, readers must be entertained: compelling scenarios, characters, flavour, a fine wordsmith... Unfortunately this book’s pacing lagged. Alt ...more

I love Shirley Damsgaard’s cast. In an odd paradox: her narrative is too visually-inclined for my taste, including over-used verbs that I loathe. Notwithstanding, I enjoy the premise! Previously Ophelia rescued a child from a cult and wishes to adopt ...more

“There's only one good reason to be a writer-we can't help it! We'd all like to be rich, famous and successful, but if those are our goals, we're off on a wrong foot...I just wanted to earn enough money so I could work at home on my writing.”
