"I just wanted to let you and
your other readers know how
much I enjoyed your newest book
“Last On A Match”. Each night
I had to force myself to put it
down so I could get some sleep.
It kept me enthralled from
beginning to end. I have read all
of your books and while I have
enjoyed them all I have to say
this is the best yet. Please get to
work on the next one soon. I am
waiting not too patiently for my
next great read. Thank you for
such great stories."
