The Reader Salute – Review by The Page Walker


Louize at The Page Walker posted a wonderful review of Previously Loved Treasures. Check out the review on her blog:

This book is 2nd in The Serendipity series, following The Twelfth Child. It’s pretty much a standalone since the story line is independent from the previous. And if you are fond of watching drama series on the telly, you’ll have no trouble liking this. And I mean that in a good way, really.

“Breaking free is never easy. There are no baby steps in walking away. There is only one gigantic leap. You take it or you remain forever rooted to a life of unhappiness.”
The plot is nothing new. It’s either you’ve read this before, seen this before, or lived this one before. But there is magic in Bette Lee Crosby’s words that glued this together and made this un-put-downable book a very endearing read. It doesn’t just touch the heart; it gives a piece of it to the reader. I didn’t have any trouble liking the characters either, especially Ida Sweetwater. Oh, it will be very easy to be cynical, but it will be a whole lot better if this is read with a hopeful heart.

Looking for a breather away from crime fighting, treacherous adventures, and faery encounters, then try this book for a change.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
