Praise for House of Diamonds

Great book to curl up with. Brew a cup of coffee on a rainy day, like I did, and get lost in it.” Jackie from Canada

I really enjoyed it. The characters were likable and well written. I like a slow romance where the characters don’t jump in bed the minute they meet. The romance was right and there was a little intrigue… Thanks for an enjoyable read.” Wanda

“Stella is an interesting character. Easy to read, feel good book. We need more of these kinds of books. I enjoyed it. I am looking forward to reading the rest of this series.” Kris Revson

“Loving House of Diamonds… It’s the perfect bedtime ‘read’. I really enjoyed it. More publications, please. Please put my name down for Book 2.” Annette B.

“Congratulations on a well crafted and delightful page-turner! The world of jewellery is a splendid backdrop to your romance, as are Sydney Harbour, Bowral and the south of France, with more glimpses of Boulder City perhaps in the eagerly awaited next book.
Keep writing!”

“You create a very well-imagined world –  it’s clear there’s a lot of research in the background, but the style is so easy that none of the details seem forced or unnecessary.” Alex

Praise for House of Hearts

“… a wonderful love story with a number of twists in the plot… I really enjoyed it.”

“Loved the easy language (beautifully written!), and the colourful descriptions of the scenery, the clinic and the town. Also liked the play on misunderstandings to keep the reader on their toes.”  

“Was amazed at your extensive knowledge on counselling procedures and rules, a myriad of psychological conditions, and gambling addiction (and the triggers). Great research!” Jen

“I could not put it down. One can relax knowing that things will work out in the end.”

“Many congratulations on another bestseller.” Annette.

I really liked it and can’t wait to pass it on to my book-reading friends!Robyn
