It is so lovely when readers leave 5 star reviews of your books. It makes all the hard, but fun work worth it.

Usually I’m not a big fan of medical romances, but I definitely make an exception for this one. Not only were the characters dynamic and easy to relate to, but the author managed to combine just the right amount of drama and romance. I also found the plot of this read was wildly refreshing and not at all predictable–unlike most romances in this genre. Overall, I highly recommend this one. It’s a real breath of fresh air!

A Beautiful Book

Lynda is blessed with a gift for writing heart warming stories. She has a wonderful imagination. This book captivates the heart of anyone who reads it. I love the story. Her writing is very uplifting and romantic. I started reading this and had to keep reading until I finished. It was that kind of book. It definitely takes the mind to a nice place. All the books by this author are a pleasant experience. Love the cover design too. This is a beautiful book.
