"Very good! Exciting to the end - loved the insights to the Amish culture. Now I need to read the others in the series!"
"Eerily relevant to today's issues of social apathy and entertainment trumping truth. Worth a read. It's "afterword" is priceless."
Suspenseful! Page turner builds as you go! Like her! Keeps you guessing. Highly recommend anything she writes.
One of my favorite authors does it again -- brings you into a lovely story and teaches you along the way. Jennifer is never a dissapointment
Nora escapes with her daughters to her childhood home in Maine to sort out her rocky marriage. The story is one of Irish Fairy Tales and mysteries of Nora's past. I could not put the book down!
The Cottage at Glass Beach: A Novel
Excellent story teller. Can't wait to read her other novels!
Quick read, an hour or less, and a cute story. You have to like a cat named Dog!
Very inspirational. A woman overcame great odds on her independent journey along the Pacific Crest Trail. A testimonial to one's grit, determination, and indomitable will in search of self discovery. A great read!
I love this book! Anything you can do to spend less and get more is great. Beautiful find with informative sidebars and charming back-stories.
Book 3 of this excellent series. I hope my spouse loves me half as much as Alan loves McKabe. Love it.
Patron review: The book is very enjoyable. It is much better than "Casual Vacancy." It kept me guessing until the end.
"Great book. An emotional story that you don't want to put down."
"A very interesting look about the genesis of the Mary Tyler Moore Show and the production company MTM. Lots of fun to read and many memories revived for readers of my age and yet appealing to younger people too."
"Great! Always love the books in the series. She has a very likable protagonist couple and they are very satisfying to read!"
"Great Book, I loved it so much. Can't wait to see the movie in November!"
"It was hard to get into at first -- by the second half I was engaged. Ending was very satisfying! Main character remains very likable."
"I haven't read anything by this author before, however, I will be sure to do so again. Excellent read!"
4/5 "Terrific novel that offers an engaging, sensitive take on the typical post-apocalyptic zombie adventure."
"Powerful story of a wife's death, a husband's mourning, & the effect on their animals. Like a pebble in the water, the ripple effect leads to a powerful courtroom battle over the morality of how animals are treated."
