"I bought three of your books, Perfect for Framing, Murder at Blue Falls,
and Emeralds in the Snow (my personal favorite). I now intend on
purchasing Appalachian Paradise! I read all three in one week! I
couldn't put them down. I have told everyone who will listen about your
books. I think you rival Nicholas Sparks, whom I previously thought
could not be rivaled. I like to visualize my characters and scenery and
you did that for me. I have these characters embedded in my thoughts,
from looks to expressions. Thank you for that.

Your new fan,
