"I definitely went into this book figuring it would be like most contemporary romances. Boy meets girl, they fall in love, third act breakup, everyone realizes they can’t be without the other, and BAM! Everyone is back together again. While this does have the HEA we all enjoy of a contemporary romance, I really appreciate that this book doesn’t resolve things as quickly as most. Yes, there’s always a breakup but when it occurs and what happens after might surprise you. I enjoyed the pacing and the detailed descriptions of everything. There’s no skimming over what things or people look like, the author is very descriptive. Well done." – Ashleigh Carter
"Loved Shooting Stars. Read it in one sitting...just couldn't put it down. Stunning!" – Bronwyn S.
"I found myself becoming increasingly engaged with your characters, and wanted them to be successful despite the challenges of the real world that seemed determined to stop them. I liked your use of imagery and your dialogue reflected your understanding of the 21st century. In all, I surprised myself by reading it in two sittings and was very happy with the resolution... dreams do come true! I do hope that you will continue writing... you have a gift which you should not let lie dormant." – Mr P G. (Skye's high school English teacher)
"It was so refreshing to read such an imaginative, creative, descriptive story that it absolutely entranced my heart; you had me smiling, tearful and heartbroken (you had me feeling Catherine's heart break as if it were my own) and, as an especially surprising bonus, the story continued when I was sure I was reading the prelude to the epilogue...several times over!" – JDH
