JD has done it again. Outwritten all my favourite authors!! I Cannot put any of her books down til they're finished and then I'm desperate for another - it's an addiction; worse than smoking!!!
Keep at it JD... I need you!!!

Hellers Girlfriend deals with lust, sensitive people, love, violence (in moderation) fear and rib clutching humour. Not good when you're reading at 2am and your husband wants the lamp out. Heller, Hellers Revenge, Hellers Punishment and the Blood Series are all addictive. I could not choose between either series or any of the JD Nixon books for favourite. JD Has made my reading life happy again - No, JD - I'm not a stalker - but get writing immediately!!!!
Everything I want in a good read is right here. Great storylines interwoven. Characters that I could believe. I thought the drama, humour and sex were just right. I especially love the Australian terminology.
Wow! Nicky Charles is neck and neck w7th my favorite author. Different genres but well written, containing action, an excellent story line and a bit of lust without being smutty. I can't wait to start the rest...... lots of late night's coming up for me.
I absolutely loved this. A terrific, book with what I imagine would be a realistic view of life when a group is cut off from the previous decision makers. Anarchy or order?
I'd love to read anything written that is written from this viewpoint.
Nicky, you need to write faster! Not since J D Nixon has one author enthralled me as you. At this rate, I'm going to own Newcastle Animal Rescue. Ps. There aren't enough stars so I'm adding my own. Thank you for your wonderful imagination. ♥♥♥♥♥♡♡♡♡♡
Excellent! Had trouble sleeping because I didn't want to stop reading. The history was real and a there have been many documented cases of children surviving alone. I can't wait to read the sequel. A very well written book that I will recommend.
As Sharon said, "holy cow" but I will add wow, wow, I want more of this story. Couldn't put it down, can't wait for the sequel!!! Gonna read all C L Bevills books.This was a ripper and if you don't like it then this is not your genre.
From the first Tilly Chalmers assignment I knew this book would be different. It was the best read and I've already started re-reading. The ending was powerful and unexpected (something we don't often find these days). The emotions I felt were roller coaster. I laughed, I cried and I got angry along with Tilly. Unexpected things happened (I don't want to give anything away unless you've read the series). Congratulations JD Nixon! Another book worth bragging about. If I could give 10/10 stars I would! I, no doubt along with other readers, cannot wait for the next Heller book.
I've found a new Author!! I really enjoyed this and wished it were longer. Not to say it was too short hahaha; just that I was loving it!
Well done , Matt. I've downloaded your next book and I'm sure it will be as excellent as Silverlight!
Oh this book was terrific.
All the important elements - betrayal, disaster, love, hate, dogs, and a Granny I would love.
This Southern inspired book also gives a quick, fascinating look at Charleston.
Read it because if you don't, you're missing out!!
Oh my. Where to start. Historical novel set in New Zealand in mid 1800s. A fascinating peek into lifestyle eg; many children, weekly backbreaking hand washing of all linen & clothing with boiling water (brought up in buckets from creek), ironing from fuel stoves, baking, constant hard work for people especially women who were considered property. Belting a wife & children (often severely) was commonplace.
This wonderful series follows the Leith extended family but focuses on Amy. Daughter of a dairy farmer, Amy at 13 became the woman of the house. Expected to fill the shoes of her recently deceased grandmother, Amys dream of becoming well educated and teaching remains a dream.
Amy falls in love at 15 and thus begins a life that none of us can imagine surviving - but survive she does. Her dignity, love for family and preparedness to forgive and respect is a lesson to us. She is a hard act to follow.
Congratulations Shayne!! This series (I'm on book 3) is brilliant. Thank goodness for slim ebooks that fit in a handbag because I can't put it down.
Looking for a terrific series at a very good price - you've got it here. Though I would have paid bookstore prices after being captivated by the first (FREE).
THERE AREN'T ENOUGH STARS BELOW - 100%
Goodness! The series is getting to the stage, I'm reading whilst ironing!
Book 2 is equal in brilliance to book 1.
Please, if you need a great series to read or gift - this is it.
Shayne Parkinson is now on my favourite Author List, along with Jr Nixon.
Different genres - fantastic books.
I am out of superlatives.
Book 3 in the series - oh my. Twists and turns but still with the fascinating, factual, historical information which interests me, being a lover of anything historical.
Amy sees a flushing toilet and electric light for the first time and sees how the "other half" live.
Shane Parkinson - all credit to you for producing another wonderful book that grows with the characters. No boredom in these books!!
Thank you for this wonderful series!
I was captivated from the first chapter of Amy's story. A series full of the emotional gamut. Seeing through Shayne's eyes was so effortless. The habits, lifestyle, working dairy farms - milking by hand, preparing dough the last thing at night to bake fresh bread the following morning...., working before dawn til late at night.
But the series isn't about those seemingly mundane things, they're just a reminder of how hard our forefathers worked. The absence of birth control was another reminder of how lucky we are. Trying to divide a small dairy farm (after the death of a Patriarch) between many sons, caring for the aged, courting, teen pregnancy and the dreadful conscription.
thank you again, Shayne. I've signed up for your newsletter to be notified of your next masterpiece.
