Great Review for Cut, Crop & Die

Here's the process for handling a book review--

Fasten your seatbelt. Say some prayers. Remember it's just one person's opinion. Remind yourself that Tess Gerritsen said that one of her books that sold the most copies got the worst reviews. Think back to when Joe Konrath told you, "Only worry about the things you can control. Don't sweat the rest."

Open the email.

Read it. Here's a portion:
About page two, I definitely knew this was going to be a great read. I finished the book in two sittings, anxious to know not only who "dunnit" but how Kiki would resolve some personal issues.

I found the characters to be greatly developed and best of all very believable. I really liked Kiki as a main character. She is a young widow with limited financial resoures who is raising a 12 year old daughter. The supporting characters couldn't be better. Sheila, Kiki's mother-in-law is an absolute hoot. There are many scenes in this book that I was just laughing out loud. I don't want to give too much away but believe me, there are some very funny scenarios that any woman or homeowner can relate to!

The mystery itself is well paced with sufficient plausible motives that are revealed in a timely manner. Readers do not need to have any knowledge of scrapbooking to enjoy this one, just the desire to read a great story with friendships and a little romance thrown in with a teriffic mystery

Feel overjoyed.

And appreciate the kind person who took the time to read your book and NOT give away the surprises.
