Reviews that were emailed to me


DH-I just finished your book. It was GREAT- a true page turner. I couldn’t put it down. I loved it and hope there will be another.

RT-Once I started reading Destinee, I wanted to know what would happen next, it’s like watching a movie. Nice job!!

DW- I finished your book and it was very well written. You should definitely continue to write. I am definitely interested in reading more from you.

A couple of reviews from

This story was about a woman who was trying to live out her dreams and to be a woman of integrity. I really enjoyed reading this book. It kept my attention. I felt as if I was with the main character throughout her journey. There were parts that made me laugh, be sad and kept me wondering what would happen next. I don't want to say much because I don't want to give the story away. It was wonderful and compelling love story. This story will be great with a sequel.

Loved the book ! I would love to see how Destinee and Edwards relationship evolves after marriage and also see more of Edwards POV. What made Destinee stand out to him ? Why did he take sooo long to say....(wont spoil it haha)
