Mona--You have a pile of wonderful reviews--and all your books deserve them. I like seeing someones books all together to know exactly what she writes. However, I could name all yours. Good job--Celia

Vonnie Davis said...

Mona, WOW, what delightful reviews for all your fabulous stories. Having them together in one spot is very impressive. I'm sure there will be many more books with an equal number of great reviews--at least I hope so. A Mona Risk book is always a delight.~ Vonnie

Keena Kincaid said...

Fabulous reviews. You must have been happy dancing all over again as you compiled them for the post.

Calisa Rhose said...

That is a list to brag about Mona. Wonderful and well deserved!

Lindsay Townsend said...

Stella reviews, Mona!
Many congratulations!!

Maggie Toussaint said...

Mona! What a smashing page of reviews. The accolades kept getting better and better. If I were you, I'd print this blog out and tape it to the bathroom door, for those moments when doubts, friends, or family plauge you.

Congratulations on such a wonderful array of books, super reviews, and a bright career.


Mona Risk said...

Hi Celia, I didn't realize myself the number of reviews until I started listing them and trimming them. To be honest, preparing this post boosted my moral. LOL

Mona Risk said...

Thank you Vonnie, I had your review up for Rx in Russian and many more by readers. And then I removed them and kept only the official revuewers sites for lack of space. I will post them another time.

Mona Risk said...

Hi Keena, as I said before this post gave me a high all over again.

Mona Risk said...

Thanks Calisa. Reviews are good for the moral when they are positive and translate into sales. That last part could be improve.

Mona Risk said...

Thank you Lindsay for your fantastic idea about a review fest.

Mona Risk said...

Maggie, I think I'll follow your idea and tape the list on my bathroom door to cheer me up in case of doubt, which happen often. Although A. James from Carina Press told me bluntly that only Golden Heart, Rita, and a few prestigious ones have value. The rest doesn't count.

Lilly Gayle said...

Great reviews, Mona. I've only read one of these books but I LOVED To love a hero! Great characters, great story, unique setting. Loved it.
