Re: An Amish Market (5:42pm February 29, 2016):

I was so happy to hear about a new author of Amish books. I love Amish stories as our family loves to take trips to Lancaster County Pa. almost every year. I am looking forward to finding out more about this series. one of my favorite places to get my spices and herbs is at Shady Maple. Thank you for the chance to win your contest. I would be delighted.

Re: Little Pretty Things (3:11pm August 25, 2015):

When I was in high school in 1958-1961 (yes, I am ancient) school sports for women was not the norm. I did play softball however as that was "girl friendly" at the time. I was more into debating club, drama club, the year book staff and all the more inside activities but not by choice, just by the way things were. In college I played tennis every day however and also worked at the newspaper office of the school too. Thank you for the great sounding book contest.

Re: Moments of Truth (10:47pm August 21, 2015):

I am looking forward to ready your latest inspirational book. It sounds fantastic and I need all the help and guidance that I can get these days of not being as healthy as I used to be and thinking about how to keep a good frame of mind. Thank you for the chance to win your book.

Re: Moments of Truth (10:45pm August 21, 2015):

Oh my gosh, lists are my life. I mean I would not have a chance to get anything done, never mind remembering it, if it were not for my lists. I do grocery lists for three stores each week, a list for Wal Mart, a list for my husband to do his errands with lists of instructions for anything he needs to pick up for me, and lists for ordering books, and so on. I have lost a lot of lists so now I have a huge notebook on my desk which is like my master list and every time I get some information that I know I will need again, but don't want to lost the note it is written on, I put that info. into my book along with the date. I have kept track of many things this way that would have gotten misplaced or forgotten otherwise.

I have only read a couple of your books, but looking forward to reading many more.
Thank you.

Re: Crushed Velvet (8:01pm August 5, 2015):

I am truly looking forward to this next book of yours Diane. The fabric that you had printed with the book covers in phenomenal. That would make a great scrap book cover for one thing or some wonderful book covers. I can think of many other things to do with them as well. Would love to be entered into the contest. Thank you so much.

Re: Four-Patch of Trouble (7:04pm July 5, 2015):

Having lived in New England all of my life, first CT and now MA, I think that what I deal with easily is the weather. We can have highs and lows of temperature varying 40 degrees in a 24 hour time period and think nothing of it. We may not love ice and snow, but we live through it (although this past winter was one of the ones that I NOTICED more than I care to talk about now that summer is here and we are all trying to forget it). We enjoy the spring as it is our first time in seeing green leaves and green grass in months and other parts of the country have this same look all year long. So, I don't tend to notice big weather changes or let them bother me, where as I know the south notices when it gets down to 75 and they feel that they are "freezing".

Thank you,

Re: Wicked Stitch (8:34pm April 17, 2015):

Having lived in Massachusetts since I was 19 years old and having gone to many memorable places prior to that in MA, we frequently visited Plimouth Plantation which is a living outdoor and indoor museum about how the people (the Pilgrims and Indians mostly) spent their lives and how they planted their crops and how they found food and prepared it over fire. They show the sheep and the way that clothing is made and how they gather the wool for the clothing and all that meanwhile all speaking in the vernacular of English residents who had come over on the Mayflower. It is a most interesting historical adventure and our grown children have been there many times when they were growing up and now take their children. It is a wonderful place to visit but don't expect the people portraying the settlement citizens to know anything about any date further than the early 1600's and you cannot break them of their scripts either. One person had a cell phone that rang and the plantation host that was talking with us screamed and asked what that ungodly noise was and backed up from fear. It really is fun for the children to know that life was a BIT more simple in those days, and that sure is an understatement. :) Would love a copy of your book, thank you.

Re: Dead Man Walker (7:56pm February 21, 2015):

Will be reading this tonight and should be done by tomorrow but since it is snowing and again, this is the perfect chance to sit at home covered with a faux down comforter and enjoying a cup of hot tea with Walker Boone along side me. Oh Duffy, you do tease us and we love it. :) Cynthia B

Re: As Gouda as Dead (1:50pm February 5, 2015):

My most favorite event personally attended with me participating was a BOSTON CREM PIE competition yes, in Boston, where there were two categories one for professional chefs/bakers and one for amateur. Long story short, I came in third with hundreds of entries and honestly, how the judges could taste that many Boston Cream Pies (showing your printed recipe) was beyond me. Only first prize won anything and I also had my hand painted cake platter go missing but it was a long but fun day seeing all the professional chefs who were participating and being there watching the judging.

I always loved local cooking competitions and recipe and food contests, having won a lot of them which I totally loved to do. But it has been a long time since all of these events but I do have vivid memories of them to fall back on.
Thank you for the lovely giveaway pendant contest.


Re: Once Upon a Grind (4:00pm December 11, 2014):

Like many other people, my daughter who is now a mother of her own, loved Cinderella. Now with two daughters of her own, and knowing how much they love all of the princesses, I would still say Cinderella is a favorite. My grandfather from Germany/Austria used to tell us a scary fair tale about a wolf but I have forgotten it, but it sure did make me afraid at the time. Not the kind of thing that I want for my grandkids now. Thank you for the wonderful contest Cleo. As you know, your Coffeehouse series is my first cozy series that got me started on cozies full time and I have loved each book since day 1. Thank you for everything and wishing you the very very very best for 2015.

Re: My Highland Spy (11:52am August 27, 2014):

As to first impressions, I find them valuable. If someone does not put forth a good first meeting, then what would you expect from future contacts? I know that someone could be having an off day, but in general, friendliness shows through on people who will be someone that I want to know better. Also, now that I have to be either in a wheelchair or using a mobility scooter, I find out very easily how nice people can be or NOT be when they slam a door in your face or won't bother to even ask if they can hold it open for you or help a handicapped person in any way. That to me shows what a person is like, most of the time. I am referring to those who rush ahead or you or push past you, fully well knowing that you are there and need help. Just my feeling on this I know but other handicapped people have related the same kind of stories to me too.

I am hoping to win this book for a dear friend who has very very limited funds and whose computer died and she cannot do any of the contests herself. So, as her friends, I am hoping to win this to send her or have it sent directly to her if I were lucky enough to be chosen. Thank you so much.
Cynthia Blain

Re: Dirty Deal (11:45am August 27, 2014):

I would love to win this book, mostly as I have a friend who is hard pressed for book buying money and I would love to surprise her with a copy of your book, one of her favorite authors too. Thank you so much.
Cynthia Blain

Thank you

Re: Billionaire Blend (11:41am August 27, 2014):

Love getting your Coffeehouse Newsletter each time and this time it also gives me a chance to win the Italian coffee cup too. Yes, you have great contests, Cleo and Mark. I want to congratulate you on such great standings on the book sales, and I am sure that CD sales will be great too, at least from our family where we buy a lot of CD's. Thank you for being an author for the people; someone we feel that is a friend of ours which makes us want to read your books and your online pages even more. Keep up the great work; excited to read the next book but winning a copy would be fabulous of course, but I know I am not alone with that wish. :)
Thank you so much and congratulations once again.
You deserve all the praise and honors that you get for all of your hard work.

Take care.

Re: Small Town Spin (10:27am April 15, 2014):

There are so many of them, but a few of them that come to mind quickly are the snake that was in the sewer system in some city and ended up coming up into someone's toilet and biting the "sitter" in the butt.

And there are always stories about women who go to the doctor or hospitals with stomach pains and thinking they have a stomach flu or stomach bug and they are ready to delivery a baby that they say they never knew they were pregnant with.

And on the news last night was a story about the guy who was running around a Georgia neighborhood totally naked wearing just a cowboy hat and trying to steal a motorcycle at one house, and at another he went in and made himself something to eat, had a beer and watched the baseball game before leaving again. They have no idea why he was naked and only wearing a cowboy hat either. That is weird.

And an old one which is from CT where I am from was always being talked about when I was young is that one of the local drive in movie theatres was haunted. Even after the drive in closed there were things that happened to reinforce the fact that it was haunted since so many people had seen these visions and that they could be documented by many so the authorities knew "something" was happening but refused to say it was actually "haunted".


Re: Love in the Library (9:28pm January 30, 2014):

What a great and really cute sounding book. I have not read anything by this author and would absolutely love to try her book. Winning is not something I do very often, but would love the surprise for sure.

Thank you so much.

Re: Control (9:26pm January 30, 2014):

After having read mostly mysteries all my life, this book seems to be a really nice but big change, and I would love to win a copy. Thank you so much.

Re: Freezer I'll Shoot (9:39pm December 29, 2013):

I try to make realistic resolutions, and this year I am going to try to lose just one pound a week and by next Christmas I hope to weigh at least 50 pounds less than I do know. I have really bad arthritis and a knee needing replacement which cannot be done for a variety of reasons. I hope that with 50 or more pounds less to struggle with that I will feel better all over, especially my knee/legs. Wish me luck; I am really going to try to do this for better health and less pain.

Would love to be entered into your giveaway; desperately want to read your latest book as I really enjoyed the first one in the Vintage Kitchen mystery series so much; and the tote is really neat too, so that is a great prize package. Thank you so much and Happy New Year to you.


Re: Billionaire Blend (9:14pm December 3, 2013):

Dear Cleo: Billionaire Blend is my neighborhood book club's book for the month of January (yeah) and I would love to win a copy of it for my daughter who normally buys the audio books as she works and has three children, so "reads" her books while driving to and from work on her CD player. But since I could not find this out in CD format yet, I would love to win a copy of the book to give to her. I love the fact that you give enough background in each book to make them stand alone books. I have loved each and every one of them, and can hardly stand to finish one knowing it will be awhile before the next one becomes available. I love the Wolverine's coffee information too.

Thank you.

Re: In for a Penny (8:03pm November 6, 2013):

I am so anxious to read this series. Had a big book order from Amazon last week so will keep the grannies on my list for the next order. Sounds terrific and I want to find out which Granny I am most like, or not at all like. :)

Thanks girls, you amaze me with your books.

Re: Because Of Audrey (9:18am October 25, 2013):

One of the best costumes that I ever wore was one made entirely of aluminum foil. (I had tights and a t-shirt on too), and it was a hit. (better than Saran Wrap I guess). I bent and twisted the foil and came up with a true top and skirt to wear and then made some shoes out of the foil as well. Went to a party one time dressed as an artist's canvas (complete with paint) and my husband dressed as the artist with a beret and a red scarf and moustache, etc. Fun times, but that was when we were young and carefree and going to parties a lot more than we do now. :)

Re: The Wicked Wallflower (11:26pm October 24, 2013):

Personally, I am old enough now that I really don't remember "clearly" but I suppose so. I think at one stage or more in our lives we all want the attention of someone else, be it a real crush or something similar.
Cynthia B.

Re: The Sweetest Hallelujah (9:39pm October 22, 2013):

I love to find a new author to follow and with the stories that I have heard that you write, I am sure that you will be one of my very favorites. I am new to the romance genre so I am slowly finding out who meshes with my tastes the best so would love to read your book to find out for sure. Thank you so much for the opportunity.

Re: How To Date A Dragon (4:23pm September 27, 2013):

This genre is new to me, but I have been checking various authors, and your writing sounds so much like what I find fun and interesting. That being said, I would love to be the recipient of your book to get involved with your characters and their adventures/antics. Our family is deep into books, and I do mean like three feet deep!!! Everyone including our two and a half year old granddaughter loves books so what could be better for Christmas giving. Right??

Truly enjoyed reading the blog and continued success. Thank you so much.

Re: The Dervish (1:27pm September 7, 2013):

I don't think that I have read any book with a subject which sounds as fascinating in a historical fiction or non fiction as your book. I would absolutely love to be the recipient of Dervish, or actually, any other books that you have written or will write such as this. Sounds incredible to me. Thank you for the opportunity to possibly win a copy. Sincerely, Cynthia

Re: A Rancher's Christmas (10:40pm August 27, 2013):

This book sounds wonderful. I am new to romance novels and have been looking for the most perfect authors for me, so would love to win your book to find out more about your writing style. Thank you for that chance.

Re: Beneath the Dover Sky (1:12pm August 19, 2013):

Have not yet read anything by this author, but after reading this wonderful blog, I definitely want to do so now. Would love to be considered for this book. Thank you for that opportunity.

Re: Three Days on Mimosa Lane (10:38pm August 17, 2013):

My mother was a stay-at-home mom who could have had a career in a variety of occupations but what she chose to do was to stay home and raise her three daughters the way she had always wanted to be raised herself. This was many years ago so it was not uncommon for women to not have jobs and to stay home to raise their children. My mother chose to keep our house was spotless, our clothes were many times designed and sewn by my mother, fresh bread was baked every other day, and lovely fresh vegetables and fruit were grown by my Mom as well. We had made from scratch meals each evening and a big Sunday dinner every weekend as that was usually the only day that our dad didn't work. I had an idealistic childhood with the comforts that any child would be envious of. We didn't have a luxurious lifestyle, but we had everything that counted from a mom who wanted to make sure that we experienced a happy childhood in her eyes, which it was. She taught us to read at a very early age, she taught us how to sew by hand and then by machine, she taught up how to cook and bake everything. We learned how to garden and to grow flowers and how to do everything that a craftsperson would be thrilled to know how to do. She taught us all those things and introduced us to every type of book genre that was written. She taught us art and sports and much, much more. I never really thought of it as home schooling as I went off to public school all my life, but now realize how much I was taught at home in addition to having guidance with homework each night. And, right after her last daughter was finished with college, my Mom began her career at the age of nearly 50 years old. To me that was a sacrifice of a career for her but I know many women do the same and that is such a wonderful thing. I have always been thrilled to know how to do so many things in life and all because of someone feeling that it was her duty and destiny to give her daughters that kind of background to help them get

Re: A Brew to a Kill (10:30pm August 6, 2013):

Will there be a recipe/cook book coming out with all of the recipes in your Coffee House series and more of your won recipes coming anytime soon?? That would be a great gift to give some friends of mine if so.
Thank you.

Re: The Passion Of The Purple Plumeria (10:27pm August 6, 2013):

I am always anxious to learn more about authors. I am new to this genre so want to find the best authors and their books for my taste. Hope to win your book so that I may have the opportunity to get more involved with romance books.
Thank you .

Re: A Brew to a Kill (10:13pm August 6, 2013):

I read the hardcover version of a Brew To Kill and it was another great book in your series. I have loved every one of them and can't wait for the next one. I would love to win the paperback version to have as a gift for my daughter as she is just beginning to get involved with cozies and I know one of your books will convert her to this genre for sure. Keep up the great work. We all love our coffee in our family and love the recipes in your novels so much.
Thank you for doing such a great job with writing. (thank your husband too). Sincerely, Cynthia

Re: Emeralds of the Alhambra (10:08pm July 16, 2013):

This novel sounds so different from any other that I have seen or read; will add it to my reading list. Would be delighted to win a copy of it too of course. Good luck with your writing career.

Re: Pieces Of The Heart (7:40pm July 11, 2013):

I am new to your writing but I have a very big wish to begin quilting again and would love love love to win this giveaway. I always am drawn to the church fairs to see all of the quilts being sold. One exciting bit of news is that our family will go to Lancaster County/Penn. Dutch County in November and I will get to choose the quilt of my choice as my 50th anniversary gift from my husband (besides the trip :)) Continue success with your writing. Thank you for the chance to possibly win this giveaway.

Re: If The Shoe Fits (7:36pm July 11, 2013):

I will show my age with my comment, but I can remember scenes from Archie Bunker where he was so blunt and abrasive but deep down he loved Edith very much. I always felt that deep connection she had with him, and sometimes the writers let his vulnerability show too. That was so wonderful.

That comment aside, I would love to get to know you as an author and your book sounds very interesting; something that I would really love to read. It would be wonderful if I could get to be the recipient of this giveaway and so thank you for that opportunity.

Much success.

Re: Pennsylvania Patchwork (7:28pm July 11, 2013):

Our family is going to be spending a week in Penn. Dutch Country/Lancaster County in November to celebrate my husband's and my 50th anniversary. I am trying to get as many novels read that I can to give me some background information other than what is found online about the Amish. I would love to be the recipient of this giveaway more than you know. Thank you so much for the possibility and keep up the great writing.

Re: Winning a Bride (2:45pm July 5, 2013):

Novellas are very much appreciated. I have read a few lately and then ended up ordering the book shortly thereafter, so from a writer's approach, I can't imagine that his isn't a great way to introduce a series or a stand alone book. Novellas can be any length; I am a "wordy" writer myself and so appreciate getting ALL the "story" in the novella rather than wondering about something prior to the book coming out. Keep up the great work, Jade and I for one of many I am sure will be thrilled to read your novellas/novellas. Thank you so much for including me in your giveaway.

Re: Widow Of Gettysburg (12:45pm June 19, 2013):

Yes, I do watch the trailers on books and I do find that they entice me to read a book. Sometimes they don't give a lot of information as you said, so then you want to read the book (or see the movie) even more in most instances. I have yet to read any books by Jocelyn Green, but since I am very fond of women that have served or help in in some way with a war, this sounds like a series that I will enjoy. Would love to be the recipient of this giveaway and will definitely look into ordering. Thank you.

Re: Grounded (12:41pm June 19, 2013):

Hello: I am sorry to say that I have never read any of the books written by these two authors, but that comment will never be able to be said again, as I plan on ordering some of their books very soon. I very much like the concept of the books and I am anxious to get reading. Thank you for including me in this giveaway. I still cannot believe that I have not ever had the occasion to read these books with all that I read each year. My oh my. Keep up the great work too.

Re: Long Simmering Spring (5:05pm May 31, 2013):

I had something happen that I tried to fix but the other person didn't want to try as hard as I did. So for that situation, I was flexible and tried, but she didn't. It was a learning experience for sure.

Re: Long Simmering Spring (10:43am May 30, 2013):

I think that the biggest of not serious but upsetting mistakes, is saying something that you feel but should have kept inside. It is usually repairable, but sometimes people don't forget as easily as you would like them to.

Would love to win the book. Thank you.

Re: Dead, White, And Blue (10:39am May 30, 2013):

I think that characters need some form of exciting event and or location to keep a book interesting, but you seem to do really well with that. I like feisty women characters in books personally. Thank you for the giveaway; would love to have the books. Keep up the great writing, Carolyn.

Re: Paige Torn (11:33pm May 28, 2013):

If I were physically able, I would love to plant a garden with all of my mother's favorite flowers, vegetables and fruit. She has been gone for 13 years but every time I see clematis, poppies, gladiola, crook neck summer squash, and raspberries and blueberry bushes, I think of my Mom. It is the flowers mostly, but when I fix the vegetables or see the fruit bushes, I always remember how much she loved these items and I wish she were still here to have some of her favorites.

Re: Lighten Up (11:29pm May 28, 2013):

The book sounds great. Would love to read it. Thank you.

Re: The Summer I Became A Nerd (12:05pm May 22, 2013):

I guess I would have to say I am a nerd about art/painting supplies. I always want more and more just to make sure I have enough of everything. I do the same with beading; have to have every color, shape and size bead to keep in case I get the urge. I also do this with books; I have to live to be 140 to get all of the books read that I have stacked up in my house right now, yet I keep buying more of them. A book addict for sure. But I know that I am not alone with wanting and collecting books!!!!!

Re: Kissing the Maid of Honor (12:01pm May 22, 2013):

My husband of almost 50 years is fine with me as a kissing partner, like Marjorie's husband is to her, but if George Clooney came along and would accept an older woman, I know that would be okay with me for sure. :)

Re: The Sword Dancer (11:56am May 22, 2013):

I have just recently become somewhat of a romance reader and this book looks very interesting. Maybe I will win it and be converted to this genre.:)

Thank you.

Re: When The Morning Glory Blooms (1:04am May 22, 2013):

I think that everyone looses friendships over the years. People change and what you felt was a bond at one time or another can change due to circumstances and many other factors. Just look forward to the changes and meet new people and if contact isn't possible, then let it be a good memory or reminder of what you found to have had that friendship for as long as it lasted.

Re: A Healing Heart (1:00am May 22, 2013):

I am just beginning to get into the romance genre, and I would love to win this book and the special coffee break gift. I am looking for some new authors in this genre and your book looks very exciting.

Re: Flora's Wish (12:58pm May 22, 2013):

I am new to this genre, and your book looks especially good; have been trying to find a few authors to follow.

Maybe I will get the chance to win a copy of the book and find out about this type of writing. Thank you.

Re: Last Chance For Justice (8:47pm May 19, 2013):

My personal preference is to keep and ebb and flow in a book and then perhaps throw in a bigger rush and then back down. I think it is important not to get complacent in timing and mix it up for however your story is progressing but there is a need to give background information/depth to sections of a book and you cannot have hype the entire story. But I would probably agree that if you don't keep up a decent pace, most readers will become a little bored. You cannot please everyone so you have to do what you feel is best I would think.

Re: Seducing Charlotte (8:39pm May 19, 2013):

I am new to the romance novels, so I am not expecting any kind of steamy scene at any particular time; I think that it has to fit in with the story and that could be at the beginning and all the way to the end, whatever works for the storyline.

Re: Temporary Roomates (5:03pm May 18, 2013):

I truly love reading about all of the places that I have never been and even the places that I have been as they are reflections of the past and almost always a good memory. I love reading about what the author's imagination has conjured up which is something I am not sure that I could do as often and as much as they do.

Hope to win a copy of Temporary Roommates as everything else that Lynn has written that I have read has been soooo good.

Re: Past Due (4:56pm May 18, 2013):

One of life's lessons taught to me by my mother was to be a good friend and a great mom to my children. I have a lot of friends and some that I have had for 65 years, so I guess I did what I was told. My children live within minutes of us, and I am very close with our daughter, especially and our grandchildren spend some part of each day with us too, so my mother would be very very proud of this if she were here to see how I managed to accomplish what she felt was something very important in life-family and friends equal love and happiness. And they really do!!!!

Re: The Practice Proposal (1:19pm May 12, 2013):

Watching sports on television and going to a game or some kind each year is my only real connection to athletes, but I do used to love to watch Jim Rice when he played baseball. We met him a few times and he was not only nice to talk to but very handsome and had a good physique. I am anxious to read your books about athletes and sports, so I am keeping my fingers crossed to win one of them and get back to romance with the great looking guys you have picked out for the readers. Good Job!!!!

Re: Angora Alibi (1:11pm May 12, 2013):

Hard to understand how I have not ever heard of your Seaside books but now that I have come back to the hobby of knitting for my grandchildren, I know these are going to be books that I will love. I am a person who lives with a camera with her at all time; photos are my way to relive each and every family time and event. I love viewing my photos; it makes you realize how fast time does go when your children seem to go from birth to 40 years old in what seems like a few years not forty. Now our grandkids are enjoying their parents photos of their youth, so I know how much that means to all of us. Can't wait to read your books, so that does mean a few of them as I always start with book 1 in every series that I read. Thank you for the lovely giveaway today.
Have a great Mother's Day.

Re: A Highland Werewolf Wedding (5:10pm May 9, 2013):

I am just beginning to get into this genre of books and was happy to find such a prolific writer. Can't wait to get a few of your books and start reading.

Re: What A Mother Knows (6:56pm May 6, 2013):

This book sure sounds haunting but oh so good. Looking forward to reading it. Just cannot imagine not knowing where you child is no matter what age he or she may be.

Re: Lord of the Mist (1:35pm May 4, 2013):

Not sure that time travel is for me; I would however love to know of future medical cures and so going into the future would hold a big lure for me. I enjoyed all the books about time travel that I have read so far too.

Re: With a Vengeance (8:24pm May 3, 2013):

As to a man and woman friendship, I do believe it could development into more, and the same with women friends; they could become a true and loyal friend forever. I am lucky to have a number of women friends in my life that I know that I can count on for anything, and I have a daughter who would do anything she could for me, and on top of that I have a husband of 50 years as of November who is my rock and is always by my side for whatever it takes. I feel so lucky to have all of these special people in my life and wish everyone could have the same.

Re: A Wedding In Springtime (10:09pm May 2, 2013):

I would need a man who is well mannered, but aggressive enough to be the one to take charge of any situation that he is needed to lead. Someone with a great sense of humor and a giving nature is very important too and a great dresser is a bit attraction.

Re: Heart Of Iron (10:05pm May 2, 2013):

To me, the hero in any book is a man who is not self absorbed and thinks of others before himself. He should also be kind with a bit of mystery about him, but not lacking the talent to be honest. If a hero has a flaw in his character it shouldn't be something that his lady would be repelled by but something that they can work out together.

Would love to be entered in this contest.

Re: Father By Choice (1:03pm April 30, 2013):

I see nothing wrong with having children in the scenario/story as long as there is love and happiness where they are concerned, or ultimate happiness at the end of the story. It would be refreshing to have a mix of ages/characters.

Re: Detour to Dusk (4:59pm April 28, 2013):

Your novel certainly sounds interesting and not your average story which will be welcome.
Hope to win a copy; I pass along my books to friends so it will get a lot of coverage!!!

Re: The Collector (1:31pm April 24, 2013):

The entire genre/subject is new to me, but I would be interested in reading it if I were to win.

Re: Prophecy Girl (1:27pm April 24, 2013):

I have not read any books of this type, so can't say, but it will be interesting to read one and then I can give you an accurate comment.

Re: Temporary Roomates (4:38pm April 22, 2013):

Your book sounds very exciting and very interesting. I would love to read it as it is one way to "travel" and not have to pack or even leave home. Keep up the great work and thanks for the offer. Hope I have a bit of luck!!! Thanks again.

Re: Lord Of Darkness (6:46pm March 4, 2013):

I find that Elizabeth's writing puts me into the frame of mind of the time period in which she writes. The characters feel so real and I am sure that each new book that she writes will have the same quality that the others before it have had. You are never disappointed with an Elizabeth Hoyt book as you are back in time and are loving it. Keep up the great work Elizabeth.
