One reader of A Sigh Of Love said, “Abbie has been divorced for years. When she was left for a younger woman she moved her kids from Alaska to Washington to be near family. Now she is on a trip back. It was supposed to be a trip to meet a man (a cousin of a friend) she had been corresponding with on the internet and phone. But, after she gets her non-refundable tickets the guy breaks it off with her. But, she decides to embark on the adventure anyways. So she heads off to visit places from her memories. She is definitely having a good time on the plane, the gorgeous guy next to her seems to be interested in her, but she is so long out of the dating game she is not sure. In the end she figures he is just being friendly but does agree to a date to go to the state fair with him.


Tom is a college professor and like Abbie is divorced. He can't believe his luck he is sitting next to a woman who he finds not only interesting, sweet but, highly attractive. Not wanting to be pushy and not being sure of why she is really in Alaska, he takes it slow but, decides that he has to ask her out.


Will these two very shy people be able to "come together" and let nature take it's course? Or will their insecurities and "jumping to conclusions" cause them to miss the caring hearts each has?


Sigh, that is the first though when I think of A Sigh of Love. I love the setting as well as the characters and their interactions. I think the look into the minds of the main characters that Ms. McBride gave us is what would be going through many peoples minds and completely intriguing. The backdrop and scenery were well added into the story, so that it added to it, and didn't take away from the characters. I thoroughly enjoyed A Sigh of Love and came away smiling. (And hoping that George gets his comeuppance at least in her mind).”


According to the book description of Love Of My Heart, “Aggie has done what no mental health therapist should do. She's fallen in love with her mysterious client, Bill. Aggie has recently purchased an old Victorian house on a hillside overlooking Commencement Bay in Tacoma, Washington; where she finds an old photograph of a Victorian era couple and a love letter written in 1885. The letter speaks of another love that can never be-that of Louise, the daughter of a wealthy English family, and her Irish lover, William. Heartbroken, Aggie soon begins to dream of the forbidden love between Louise and William, but in her dreams, William's face mirrors that of her beloved, Bill. Bill is in love with Aggie, and he can't figure out how to get close to her. If only he hadn't entered her professional doors as a client. How is he going to fix this?”


One reader of A Trail Of Love said, “Outstanding Read! "I really enjoyed reading A Trail of Love by Bess McBride. I read it straight through with only a brief break for obvious reasons....There is a whirlwind of emotions presented throughout the book that makes you want to skip to the end to find out whether the couple will figure it all out. Misunderstandings abound and make the reader anxious. Trust me when I say that the ending is well worth it. I can't recall the last time I read a book that left me on the edge of my seat, shushing my kids and husband, dying to find out how each of the characters would react to the twists and turns that molded them into who they are. I was blown away by the inner strength of an abused woman and the love and persistence of a sympathetic man and how they found their way into each other's arms in spite of life's pits and potholes.”

According to the book description of Caribbean Dreams Of Love, “Daisy and her sixteen-year-old daughter, Lilly, are embarking on a Caribbean cruise. She isn't looking for anything special on the cruise other than a pleasant break from her humdrum existence as long-time divorced single mother to a busy teenage girl. She certainly isn't prepared for an enigmatic man named Peter whose idiosyncrasies in dress and speech mark him as an eccentric person to avoid. But Daisy can't avoid him. In fact, she begins to obsess about him from the first moment she catches him staring at her in the cruise ship terminal. Peter remains elusive and mysterious throughout the cruise. She catches sight of him occasionally, never often enough to please her, and they connect one wonderful night as he sweeps her into his arms for a waltz. A waltz? On a Caribbean cruise ship? While Daisy's dinner companions share nightly tales of the legends of cursed pirates, Daisy dreams of the mysterious man who has captured her heart.”
