“Hattie is a well-written book that will keep you entertained from the beginning to the end. This story is full of action, romance, and misfortunes.  The plot moves at a good quick pace keeping in line with a novella. A fresh, new storyline that was quick to read, captivating, and kept my attention to the very end. The characters were well developed and easy to like. This author knows how to create a story with enough romance and action to keep the reader entertained and interested. “ – Between the Coverz

“I love mail order brides, and this one is a real winner.” – Amazon reviewer

“Wow! What a fantastic book!… I can say that the plot and characters were well developed. Add the twist and turns to help add to making this a very interesting story. I was captured from the very beginning to the very end. Add that this was a sweet romance, no bedroom scenes, I thoroughly enjoyed Hatti and Ed’s story. Now I need to read books 1, 2, and 3, which was on my list to buy and read also, but the hype on facebook about Hatti this past week, had me doing otherwise. I highly recommend this book!”

“Oh my I love this series.” – Goodreads reviewer

“I really enjoyed the twists and turns as the author hooks you from the first page to the last. It doesn’t take long for Hattie to find tragedy, one thing leads to another as the author spins a delightful tale with action, broken hearts, tragedy and a love that will warm your heart. It is a short sweet Christian romance filled with excitement and one handsome sheriff you are going to love.” – Goodreads reviewer
