|Mending Fences receives five-star review!
Wow! Had no idea anyone had even READ u>Mending Fences yet for review! Stumbled across this by accident at Fallen Angels review! Then I found a second blurb/review at Huntress' Reviews as well (see below).
This is my first fiction book and first published contemporary romance. The book is written under my actual birth name, Star Ferris. My legal, adopted name is Bev. The book will be released September 6th. So glad the reviewer loved the book! ;-)
You can find the review here:
"This is a great contemporary romance filled with a gorgeous real life cowboy that will make any woman tingle with his seduction and Jenniferís determination to make it on her own. Star Ferris did a great job with Mending Fences being her first book and will surely go far with her imagination and talent in creating such a beautiful story come to life with memorable characters."

Title - Mending Fences (Sept. 2006)
Most people would be delighted to win a new home, but Jennifer Marless is anything but. The recent widow never expected to win a ranch, but when she does, she wants nothing to do with the Split Rail Ranch. Nonetheless, she gives way to the pressure applied on her to take her son, Aaron, and check it out in person. The foreman, Jace Thompson, is another thing she had not counted on. From the first moment, she and the handsome cowboy clash and misunderstand each other, but then, he breaks through her tough shell, the one she's erected and hid behind for a year. Once he saves her life, love is almost a sure thing. However, doubts about his possible criminal past threaten to tear their lives apart just as happiness seems possible.
*** There is no doubt that Jennifer is a hard lady to like, initially, but her portrayal is an extremely realistic depiction of someone who has gone through too much pain. The entire book is done in a similar fashion, showing how hard life can be, and how love can redeem it in the end. ***
