Cari Hi, Helen,

I read "Marriage under th Mistletoe" last month and LOVED it. So I bought "Made for Marriage" and really enjoyed it. Now reading, "His-and-Hers Family". Great so far! I usually like a book if the characters grab me! Your characters touch my heart! Thank you!

Lorraine Venter Hi Helen, The Secret of Green Hills is my very first novel. I'd appreciate a mention of my book. Plse find amazon kindle or books and barnes & noble nook books.

Harlequin Books Hello Helen, it is a pleasure to meet you.
