“…this debut novel by Shannon O’Neil, has something to please every ardent fiction lover – a dysfunctional family, a former flame, dark pasts, and a beautiful location backdrop in the ‘Ancient City’ of St. Augustine, Florida. It’s a hilarious, fast-moving, wonderful break from usual Christmas fare and highly recommended for those cool (or, perhaps here in Florida, mild) winter nights.”
– Nicole T.
“This book was incredible!!! The vivid imaginary of St. Augustine and the very personable characters make it one of the best holiday books that I have ever read! I was lucky enough to find this book over the holidays and I read it while traveling to see my family. I can’t wait to read more books from her!”
“This is a great book by a great author who really has a descriptive and fun way of telling a story. It’s got unexpected twists and a ubiquitous sense of humor that carry the plot and make the book an interesting read. No matter your interests, you will definitely enjoy this book and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an escape into a realistic fictional world.”
– Todd A.
“As a native of the ‘Ancient City’ portrayed in this novel and a member of a huge family, I can honestly say that Ms. O’Neil’s setting and plotlines are perfectly executed! This book has just the right mix of humor, sarcasm, love, and catharsis – and I truly believe nearly any reader would be able to identify with the characters. A must-read! Can’t wait to see more from this author.”
