    In her debut novel, Pixie’s B n B, Anna Cantrell engages readers with a smart and realistic story of love, loss, grief and renewal. After losing her husband in a tragic accident, the main character Melanie is sent by a good friend to vacation at Pixie’s B n B where the Innkeeper proves to be one of those special persons who shows Melanie how to rediscover the joys of everyday activities and how exciting it is to spend time with the Inn’s diverse group of guests. The prose is crisp and Melanie’s staccato internal dialogue resonates with readers and their personal journeys through grief. In addition to this life-affirming story, the book has special meaning to all those with personal connections to the beloved Long Beach Island and Barnegat Light. I enthusiastically recommend this book to all readers.

    Pixie’s B&B is an entertaining read; which I could not put down. Melanie moves from the depths of grief to finding a new path in life. Betsy-Lou, the owner of Pixie’s, and the guests Melanie encounters at the B & B guide her to look past her grief to the future. Pixie’s B & B made me want to cry and laugh at the same time. A wonderful book to pick up on a cold winter’s day or on the beach in Barnegat Light.

    Pixie's B & B was an interesting story for me on a number of levels. Having grown up in Barnegat Light, I can relate to the magical 'love' of Long Beach Island. It is truly a place where memories are made by so many people and why they want to always return. Anna Contrell captured the ambiance and the flavor of the Island like no other writer. She captivated me with her writing skills and her ability to weave such an interesting story. I very much look forward to her sequel so that I can check in at her new 'Captains Quarters'!

    I throughly enjoyed reading this debut novel by Anna Contrell. Pixies B & B introduces you to many complex characters who are guests at the B & B. At the same time you follow Melanie's journey from loss and grief evolve into acceptance and finding the ability to move forward. Within this well written, fast paced story, many readers will identify with their own memories they made on Long Beach Island, NJ and their never ending love of Ole' Barney.

    I was enchanted with reading an interesting book from a talented new author. Pixies B & B is a story of one womans’ journey Into something we all inevitable face - death of a loved one. One is quickly drawn into Melanie’s odyssey of pain and redemption to the extent that it is impossible to put the book down. It’s a quick read but it is also a book that leaves you wondering about life, love and the pursuit of happiness. I am an avid book reader and I completely enjoyed Pixie’s B & B. I look forward to reading more stories from Anna Contrell.
