Re: Unbreak Me (8:07pm August 23, 2019):

This sounds like a wonderful love story. And I agree, I love a man who cooks. Thanks for the chance to win.

Re: The Body in Griffith Park (5:57pm July 18, 2019):

This looks like a match with me. I love period mysteries and strong women characters. The plot sounds great. I'm looking forward to reading this one.

Re: How to Write a Romance (6:18pm July 12, 2019):

This looks like a very interesting book and one that I would like to read. I think most readers have thought about writing a book and have no idea how to go about it.

Re: Bloodsucking Lawyer (7:04pm June 20, 2019):

Sounds perfect for me. I love vampires and legal dramas. Also I always want a story to have great side characters.

Re: No Heartbreaker Required (4:16pm June 12, 2019):

This sounds like a great love story. I'll be checking it out. And congrats on having a wonderful husband. Some of us are lucky that way!

Re: Love Under Construction (6:13pm May 21, 2019):

Sounds like a perfect match. I do love a good love story.

Re: Apparent Power (4:59pm May 11, 2019):

This sounds very interesting. I like wondering how I would handle a situation like this.

Re: Death Blow (3:57pm April 8, 2019):

This series sounds like a perfect match for me. One of the things I love about Fresh Fiction is that I get to learn about new authors and series. I read a lot but no one can keep up with every book without sites like this one. I'll be trying this author's books.

Re: A Shot of Murder (3:54pm April 8, 2019):

My favorite whiskey is Johnny Walker Black, neat. And I definitely think that whiskey goes very well with reading. At least it has worked very nicely for me.

Re: Chocolate a la Murder (4:14pm March 11, 2019):

I had seen the paranormal museum mysteries on amazon when I was book shopping but I hadn't tried one yet and I'm not sure why. Reading this post I realize that I've been missing out on an author that I will very likely love. I'll be trying this series the next time I'm on Amazon. Thanks to the author for the post and to Fresh Fiction for introducing me to another author that sounds perfect for me.

Re: Let Me Love You (4:51pm March 1, 2019):

I have commented before that I love this idea of a series of books with one location. It reminds me that there are so many stories around us that we usually don't think about. Nice to see another story with this setting. It sounds great. I'm just not sure if I want to read one book at a time or get them all and binge.

Re: It's Getting Scot in Here (4:47pm March 1, 2019):

I like historical romances but they aren't a favorite genre of mine. However reading this excerpt has me hooked and I will be reading this book. Congrats to the author on a terrific premise and wonderful prose.

Re: Just Once (4:11pm January 21, 2019):

After reading this I think we are a match. I loved the Notebook. And yes, I needed tissues, especially for the end. I love this plot.

Re: Feels Like Falling (6:45pm November 21, 2018):

I love your reader match posts. They let me know just what
to expect from the author and to truly find out if I'm
going to enjoy the books. I read different genres for
different moods. There are times I want books like this

Re: Never Let Me Fall (1:49am November 12, 2018):

That is a rough, emotional excerpt. Well written. If the
whole book is the same it's going to be riveting.

Re: Wolf Rising (3:07pm November 4, 2018):

You have really combined so many ideas in this book.
Sounds very interesting. Hope it does really well for you.

Re: Cowboy Christmas Jubilee (2:56pm November 4, 2018):

I want to live in Holiday, Texas. I'm looking forward to
reading this story.

Re: Just This Once (2:38am October 17, 2018):

I haven't read any of the series yet but this one sounds so
good I'm going to have to try it. Thanks for the chance to

Re: Wild On My Mind (3:18am October 3, 2018):

Wonderful premise. I love the idea of a friendly zoo as a
backdrop for a romance. Maybe you could expand the idea and
use the zoo again with more characters? I could get hooked
on a series like that.

Re: A Billionaire Wolf for Christmas (5:20pm September 28, 2018):

Fortunately I've never been in a life threatening situation
but I have had plenty of bad times. Being an adult means
being afraid or unsure and still doing the right thing.

Re: More Than a Phoenix (5:17pm September 28, 2018):

I've never thought there was anything wrong with reading
romances. Sometimes you just need the escape of a sweet
story. Good luck with your new book!

Re: Rocky Mountain Cowboy Christmas (3:07pm September 26, 2018):

I love a good Christmas romance. Congratulations on
getting it published.

Re: Mistletoe in Texas (3:05pm September 26, 2018):

Looks like a good premise for a book. I've never been to a
rodeo and am interesting in reading more about that
setting. Thanks.

Re: How the Earl Entices (4:18pm September 17, 2018):

I have never thought of regency romances in quite this way.
Very interesting post. Makes me want to read more regency

Re: How the Earl Entices (2:43pm September 14, 2018):

Anna is right. I never thought of regency romances in
quite those terms but now I'm rethinking that. Hope the
book does great!

Re: Maverick (4:56pm September 9, 2018):

Looks like some excellent books. I haven't tried this
author yet but based on this post, I will.

Re: Cowboy Charm School (4:52pm September 9, 2018):

Always keep your word. Always.

Re: Do or Die Cowboy (4:46am September 2, 2018):

Fun post. I hope your book sells lots of copies!

Re: Hunted (8:46pm February 12, 2018):

I'm looking forward to many books this year. In the Vines by Shannon Kirk is one because it is set in Mass. Another is Breaking Point by Allison Brennan. I haven't read any by her yet but this plot looks very good.

Re: Ghost on the Case (4:56pm October 13, 2017):

My favorite is Death on Demand. That was the one that started me reading her books.

Re: Addressed to Kill (7:31pm August 28, 2017):

I love when I find a new author I like and then find out that she's written several other series. I'm looking forward to reading a book set in Massachusetts.

Re: A Tangled Yarn (7:24pm August 28, 2017):

Looks like a fun book. And I love a series that teaches me something too. I've just taken up knitting and I need all the help I can get.

Re: Freedom's Ring (10:35pm August 19, 2017):

I love the idea of a time slip novel. I love the settings for this one. Looks like a wonderful read. Being from Massachusetts I'm particularly interested.

Re: Brazilian Capture (5:37pm May 27, 2017):

One of my favorite movies influenced by a book is O Brother, Where Art Thou? influenced by the Odyssey.

Re: Killer Characters (5:13pm May 27, 2017):

It is interesting to read how many different jobs the author has done in her life. It has to add to her writing when she has actually done some of the jobs she describes. And most of us can relate to one or more of the experiences.

Re: Sweet Southern Trouble (7:56pm May 14, 2017):

The best attribute has to be the accent. I love a southern accent.

Re: When Water Was Everywhere (3:44pm March 1, 2017):

My love of novels that are so descriptive that they take me to their setting started years ago with Mary Stewart.

Re: In The Line Of Fire (7:46pm July 22, 2016):

After reading this review I, more than ever, want to see Tuscon. It sounds wonderful.

Re: The Bones Will Speak (8:16pm June 14, 2016):

I like how she uses her personal experience in her books. I think it will make her books more real.

Re: Vendetta (5:48pm June 14, 2016):

Nikki Boyd sounds like an interesting character. I'm looking forward to trying this series.

Re: Romancing the Ranger (12:02pm March 25, 2016):

I'm more productive with upbeat music but I use pop and disco instead of bluegrass.

Re: How Willa Got Her Groove Back (7:54pm March 18, 2016):

I haven't watched any web series but I love Felicia Day so I'm going to try The Guild. Thanks for the chance to win!

Re: For Cheddar or Worse (11:19pm February 28, 2016):

One of my favorite towns is Provincetown in Mass. Quirky and original. Very fun and I love the beach.

Re: Montana Wild (8:11pm January 21, 2016):

I'm not sure I would want to permanently move to Montana but I would be willing to try it for a few years. You make it sound refreshing.

Re: Smart, But Dead (8:04pm October 3, 2015):

What makes me a little weird is my extreme love of books and reading. I have over 8000 books and more ebooks on my Kindle.

Re: Never Broken (6:43pm September 10, 2015):

My name is Mary and of the two definitions: of the Sea or Bitter I'm going to go with of the Sea. Bitter doesn't sound that great.

Re: Avelynn (6:41pm September 10, 2015):

I've always like the story of Cleopatra and Marc Antony.

Re: From Russia Without Love (6:40pm September 1, 2015):

I can't improve on your choices. I mean picking a young Don Rickles is brilliant. If your writing is this good ... I'm in.

Re: A Remarkable Kindness (4:08pm August 28, 2015):

I like the slower developing romances. I think love at first sight is not realistic. You can certainly be attracted to someone at first sight but to love them you need to know who they are.

Re: Darkest Misery (7:50pm August 16, 2015):

I think the best part would be having the chance to kick butt. In my real life that rarely comes up. Ok, never. Also I love the weapons!! But not the leather pants.

Re: A Peach of a Pair (6:28pm August 7, 2015):

a good scotch

Re: Fudging the Books (8:23pm August 4, 2015):

I love traveling up and down the coast of California. Great views and most of the time great weather. Wish Crystal Cove was real. Would love to visit.

Re: The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts (8:13pm August 1, 2015):

I've had a long term interest in the occult and some of the people I've met would make for interesting stories.

Re: Lone Rider (8:10pm July 28, 2015):

My favorite cookie from my childhood is the classic Toll House Cookie.

Re: Calamity Jayne and the Sisterhood of the Traveling Lawn Gnome (8:01pm July 28, 2015):

I love a series with a sense of humor so I'll be trying this one. Maybe not the new book though. I hate gnomes. :)

Re: No Safe Harbor (7:07pm July 25, 2015):

I wanted to incorporate handfasting into my wedding ceremony but time got away from me and I never did. I wish I had. Thanks for the chance to win this interesting book.

Re: Deadly Dye and a Soy Chai (4:38pm July 21, 2015):

I want all of these features in a salon. I want a fabulous stylist, the newest products to try, fun gossip and a beverage or two available. My salon is Madison Ave. in Easthampton,MA and I love it.

Re: School's Out for Murder (4:34pm July 21, 2015):

I was not always the best at turning in my homework. Wish now I had been better. This looks like a good new series.

Re: Once Upon a Heist (6:43pm July 18, 2015):

I like the theme and it looks like a fun book.

Re: Death of the Mad Hatter (8:00pm July 11, 2015):

I would take these cupcakes. Why wouldn't I use the recipe from the woman who knows the area best? And they look delicious. The only trouble I would have would be not eating them all myself.

Re: Mint Cookie Murder (7:22pm June 30, 2015):

If this post is an example of the humor in your books then I'm in. I'll be looking you up on my kindle tonight and hoping I win.

Re: Four-Patch of Trouble (7:19pm June 30, 2015):

One thing I notice every year is how other parts of the country, down south or other warmer areas, is how just a little snow or a big rain storm really disrupts traffic. I'm from Mass so I'm used to lots of snow and ice.

Re: Girl Spoken For (7:46pm June 27, 2015):

She Blinded Me With Science by Thomas Dolby. Love that song.

Re: The Breaking Point (6:27pm June 23, 2015):

I like that this book uses real science so I can learn as I enjoy the story. If I had to pick a favorite setting for forensic mysteries I guess it would be ones that feature past civilizations like ancient egypt.

Re: Motion for Malice (6:22pm June 23, 2015):

For fun I read. I have to read every night before bed.
