    Congratulations to you, Kristy! That is fantastic news! I smile from ear-to-ear when I get a good review from a blog post. I can only imagine what it must be like to get a great review for a a book – that is not yet for sale!!!! 🙂

      I know what you mean about the good reviews for blogs. But I just can’t even describe exactly how I felt when I found it. I was actually half asleep and planning on going to bed when I got to the end of the chapter I was reading. And then I was wide awake for a few more hours.

      I know it sounds a little silly but many people have talked about that one great book everyone has in them and I think Enza was mine. From the moment the first thought came that it would be a good subject to write about I knew it. So to see it so well received is just a feeling like I never imagined. 🙂

      By the way, I can’t seem to find your blog. When I click on the link it takes me to a WordPress site but it doesn’t seem to be yours.

    It was me from Silver’s Reviews who posted the review. 🙂

    I wrote this morning, but I see it may not have gotten sent.

    I loved the book, Kristy.

    Best of luck with the sales. I am sure they will soar.

      Hi, Elizabeth…
      It’s nice to ‘meet’ you! If you mean this post, I only just got it. But thank you so much for the review. I’m very glad you enjoyed it and appreciate the kind things you wrote. It truly made my day when I saw it. 🙂

        I wrote a different one early yesterday morning. Glad you received this one. I see you saw the one on Goodreads as well. 🙂

          I actually got them all, WP just deposited two of them in the spam folder. Ninety-nine percent of the time they get it right and I get a nice chuckle reading some of them. But every once in a while, I’ll find legitimate comments there. It’s more than a little frustrating.

          Yes, I did see the one on GoodReads, and I’m glad I checked that, too. There’s a phantom rating there that trying to track down. 🙂

    That is soooooooo fabulous!! Congratulations, Kristy, and well deserved! The first of many to come, I am sure!!!

      Thanks, Diane! I’m completely thrilled (like no one could figure that out, right?). 🙂

      I sure hope there will be many more to follow. I was telling someone that if Enza was a human, it would be one of my kids…that’s how much I love it and all the characters in it. 🙂

    Fantastic! I would not be surprised if that number grows. 🙂

      Thanks, Debra! I really hope you’re right. I was over the moon from the responses I got from the beta readers, and now to have one from a reviewer that was totally positive… I may wind up dancing yet, lol. 🙂

    Yep, it was one of your blog tour bloggers! 🙂

      Thanks for telling me, Stormi. I was floored when I saw it already had a review, and checking all over the place because it’s not supposed to be for sale yet. But then I saw the PA and remembered that one of the reviewers on your list that had requested paperback copies was from there. And I was hoping that’s who it was. I’m still jumping for joy over it this morning, lol. Every time I woke up I thought about it and was grinning from ear-to-ear. 🙂

        She is also posting it on Goodreads, and she was surprised it let her on amazon since it hadn’t been released, but saying the review on her blog till her post date. (I had to make sure..lol) It is nice to have some pre-release reviews! 🙂

        It sure is! I was stunned to see it there. And VERY happy to see that she liked it that much. One of my beta readers is going to post one, too. I am getting so excited about the release date! 🙂

    Yep……that review is from me…..Elizabeth of Silver’s Reviews. You are correct…I am on the blog tour. Hope it was ok to put it out before the tour.

    Loved the book, Kristy. It will be a hit.

      And here’s another one they redirected. That makes me crazy when WordPress does that. 🙁

      It was absolutely, perfectly fine with me that you put the review out before the tour. I’ve been so nervous about the release and this helps a lot. And thank you. I hope everyone else that reads it will love it as much as you did. 🙂
