Comments from Readers

Re: Heart Shaped II

The mini stories are about finding love in unexpected places unexpectedly. They’re warm and hopeful. Last story is longer – a touchingly beautiful and fitting ending to the book. ~ Barbara E., Los Angeles, 2- 27- 2020

Re: The Gift Counselor

I was made aware of this story through goodreads…I really enjoyed the story and look forward to reading the sequel… ~ Elke F., Germany, January, 2020
