Goodreads Review of all in good time

I loved reading this book and couldn't put it down! It was well written and envelops you immediately into the story. Jake is the perfect gentleman, any woman's dream man, but you'll find your heart truly belongs to Charlie. Excellent read!!

Amazon reiview of icehaven

Icehaven was a very intense and engrossing read with all the secrets and the mystery as well as the twists. Icehaven had so many emotions swirling around with the sadness, the hate, the selfishness, and the love, the pain. Once I picked it up I didn’t want to put it down until I had read the last page and even now I want more.

Barnes & Noble Review of Icehaven

With vivid imagination, the authors bring this new world into intense focus. You can feel the frigid temperatures and imagine the desolate landscape. The characters are well-drawn and likable. The writing flows in that smooth, rhythmic way that I love, and I just couldn’t stop reading Icehaven.
