Genre Reviews has posted a review of Red Gold Bridge. I am very pleased that the reviewer wrote a detailed review with thoughtful criticism, even if it’s not completely positive.  Here are some excerpts:

This is one of those stories where each major character has their own storyline, which gradually begin to intermingle as the book continues, although for the most part, these stories work perfectly well independently. If Lynn didn’t feature in the book at all, Kate’s story would make just as much sense, and vice versa. They don’t need or build on each other, and interconnect only in the loosest sense.


I was really enjoying Crae’s tale, with his struggles to make his marriage and his lordship real, which involved a rather sweet and slow love story that would have stood very nicely on its own outside the rest of the book.

The reviewer had valid criticisms of the book, but I will let you click through and discover them for yourselves. ;  -)

nice review… I posted a comment responding to the most obvious thing about the review for me. that being: the review starts with a thorough discussion of the cover art! not a word about the book itself until the cover gets dissected!

it is a fantastic cover. Patrice, do you know who painted it?

Thanks! The artist for both covers is Aleta Rafton.

Yeah, she’s definitely a solid player in the field. I’ve started to notice her covers when I browse in the bookstore.
