Awards & Honors: FAR Recommended Read Award 5 angels from Fallen Angel Reviews 4 ½ books from The Long and Short of It Reviews 5 Angels! "Christmas in Amethyst is a suspense-filled thriller, an unlikely sort of Christmas story but one whose selfless love of mother for son is heartwarming. A single mother sacrifices her own desires to give her young son something he'll love, but her devotion may cost her more than she intended it to. I have to say that the setting is so original that it's a character on its own. I would gladly love a first-hand look at Amethyst, especially the pristine lake. Another strength that flows is the way this author writes her characters, so filled with human emotion in such a wide range. Dev is a sweet, animal-loving little boy who captured my heart, I felt a connection to the characters in this book. I wanted happy things for the good ones and waited for the creepy guys to get their due." ~Fallen Angel Reviews... More > http://www.fallenangelreviews.com 4 1/2 Stars! "Christmas in Amethyst follows single mother Sheila and Police Officer Jeb. Sheila was deceived by the wrong guy and is now raising her son alone and trying to make the best of things while wishing she could change the past. She is a character easy to relate to. Each of us has things in our life we regret, second chances that we long for. This is a story of a hurting soul who doesn't believe she is worthy of another chance. There are some creepy elements that are, nevertheless, real and tragic. Karen Wiesner takes a bold step by wading into dark waters. This made for a very unique and interesting story with unexpected twists. I read this one late at night and found myself peeking around dark corners long after the book was finished. Karen Wiesner uses finely tuned skills to draw the reader in and make you live the story. She tugs at your heartstrings, pumps your adrenaline and sends you falling into love. And all with a masterful attack of words." ~Long and Short Reviews http://longandshortreviews.blogspot.com< Less
