Under the Moon Review by M. Denise C.

Thanks to book blogger M. Denise C. for being intrigued enough by the first two Muskoka Novels to  read the 3rd in the series! Here's her review of Under the Moon. Be advised that the first paragraph contains plot spoilers for those who haven't read The Summer Before the Storm and Elusive Dawn.

Readers' Favorite - 5-Star Review!

I'm delighted that The Summer Before the Storm has received a 5-Star review, which can be seen on the Readers' Favorite website. Love the comparison to Downton Abbey! Remember that my book came out first (2006).  :)

Thanks to Book Bloggers!

It’s vital for me as an author to have feedback from readers. It lets me know what works and what doesn’t, and what could be improved upon. Of course, we all have different expectations and preferences, and read within the framework of our own life experiences, so no two people will “experience” a novel in the same way. And yet, if I’ve managed to touch people’s hearts and minds, then I’ve accomplished my mission.

The recent book blog tours for The Summer Before the Storm and Elusive Dawn have provided me with plenty of reviews and wonderful quotes, as well as things to ponder as I work on Book 4 in the series. I’d like to thank all the bloggers who took the time to read and critique my novels. All are busy, and some had to juggle difficult family situations to meet deadlines. But they are book lovers who do this gladly because it’s their passion. Special thanks to Teddy Rose of Premier Virtual Author Book Tours for her own enthusiastic response to my novels, and for so professionally arranging the tour.

You’ll find links to these reviews in my November 2012, December 2012, and February 2013 blogs, listed in the right-hand column. If you have comments to make about my novels, I'd be delighted to hear from you, so email me at Thank you all!
