Four Five-Stars in Six Days! Thank you!

The Whiskey Bottle in the Wall: Volume 1 (Secrets of Marienstadt) has only been available for six days and has already received four lovely five star reviews. I appreciate it so much. All the feedback has been very good. I'm hard at work on Volume 2! Thanks to all who have purchased and reviewed!!!

I think the passion that Kathleen puts into her books and characters stems from the wonderful upbringing in this area of central Pennsylvania. I share that same beginning. The first book I read by this author was "The Reluctant Belsnickel of Opelt's Wood". While growing up in a German family, we were all aware of the tradition of Belsnickel and some even carry this to their extended family. Now we can be sure that others will know about this through some great writing! As I read through the pages, this entire book made me smile! Thank you and I am now a follower of Kathleen Valentine's new book "The Whiskey Bottle in the Wall: Volume 1 (Secrets of Marienstadt)". Keep them coming and thank you for the memories.

Like the various smells during the holidays that transport your thoughts over the years of celebrations, this book awakens your senses and stimulates memories for any reader who grew up in a small nurturing community. I loved exploring the characters and found humor with my own history. Thank you.

I have read all of Kathleen's books and especially like the ones written with ties to her hometown and enjoyed every one of them. Just got done with The Whiskey Bottle in the wall and loved it. Can't wait for Vol. 2 and 3. Thanks for taking the time to write about our little town and some of the traditions.

After reading the story that prompted Kathleen to write a series of stories about Marienstadt (The Reluctant Belsnickel,) I just couldn't wait to see what would develop with all the wonderful characters. The wait, thankfully, is over. At least the wait for Volume 1 is over. These stories and characters warm your heart. Kathleen's style of writing these wonderful short stories is light-hearted and just plain fun. The characters are the kind of people you wish you knew in real life. The businesses come to life along with their proprietors and customers. I've waited some time to read these stories and was not disappointed. I am now anxiously waiting the next installments. If you love quirky characters, and like it when the good guy wins, or when good triumphs over evil, you'll love these stories. Once again, Kathleen delivered in wonderful form.
