Smashwords book reviews by Tricia McGill

  • Amethyst on Sep. 28, 2017

    “Tricia McGill writes a tender love story that will melt your heart and have you wanting to smack some sense into Amy… good reading, especially when you turn inward to look at yourself and your insecurities." Linda B at TRS
  • A Call Through Time on Oct. 01, 2017

    “This is a wonderfully complex tale about a man in another time. Ms. Mc Gill is at her best describing the settings and making us feel as if we’re in ancient times, with the good and the bad – the deep forest and roman villages, the clothes and food are all brought to life for the reader. The characters are real and their story captivates… Interwoven with treachery and violence, the magic of the Celts, shape shifters and the old songs and legends, this story will sweep you into another time - one that you won’t want to leave!” Reviewed by Jennifer Macaire for Wordweaving and MidWest Book review
  • When Fate Decides on Oct. 01, 2017

    reviewed by: Book Junkie Momon “This was another first read for me by this author and boy am I impressed! It was quite a different romantic read to see an older type mature woman being desired and pursued by a younger man. I really liked both characters. He's a man's man. A well-developed kind, mature, handsome man. I really like Tessa too..altogether a good read!”
  • Laurel's Gift on Oct. 20, 2017

    By Minnie: “An unusual paranormal with enough romance to satisfy me. The ghost haunting the house was believable, and an extra bonus was knowing the area the story is set in.”
  • Maddie and the Norseman on Dec. 03, 2017

    I was drawn to this story because of my interest in the Viking settlement in York, UK, after visiting the museum there several years ago. I also enjoy the occasional time travel book to experience the struggles of a person from modern times plunged into the past and forced to survive in a strange environment. Maddie and the Norseman satisfied me on both counts. The book brought to life the Viking world of York (and France) that I had glimpsed from relics in the museum. Maddie and her time-travelling friend Amber face many challenges and don't always respond in ways they expected. I also got a sense of Maddie's quest for family. Her earlier interest in Vikings came from her adoptive family and, in the course of events, she acquires a family that echoes the original one that enriched her life. I recommend this book to readers who like history, stories with appealing characters, and romance. Reviewed by Curious Reader on Nov 29 2017

    “Another great book. She certainly knows how to write a page turner. This is the 3rd book of hers I've read, and they just keep getting better. Keep them coming, they're brilliant.” Reviewed by Jean Mar 28 2015
  • Remnants of Dreams on Dec. 03, 2017

    “This book touched me deeply. Perhaps that's because I was born in North London and the places and people were familiar. I could not put it down. I can honestly say it is one of the best in the genre I have read.” Reviewed by Violet Mar 15 2014
  • Remnants of Dreams on Dec. 03, 2017

    "I loved this story, although there were times when I felt tears welling in my eyes and an enormous lump in my throat. This story touched me deeply, and I won't forget it. Watching a family struggle so desperately is not easy, but seeing them triumph over tragedy is uplifting. I enjoy long, intense family sagas like this. Tricia McGill writes so realistically that the joys and sorrows portrayed made me laugh and cry. This is a novel of great emotional depth." Review by Kay James for Romance Reader at Heart
  • The Laird on Dec. 04, 2017

    "The Laird" is a wonderful time travel romance that draws the reader in and makes her feel she is there. Exceptionally researched and well written, the story centers around Andrew and Elizabeth, who travel to Scotland to visit his uncle before the man dies. Andrew is serious and all business, while Elizabeth is more fun-loving but also well-versed in Celtic lore and fluent in Gaelic. The story starts in the present, but while going over items in the attic of the castle, they find themselves flung back to the 11th century. If that isn't bad enough, Travis, the lord of the castle, is a spitting image of Andrew and takes a liking to Elizabeth. Andrew is torn between jealousy of Travis and worry about getting back to their own time. Elizabeth shares his worries, but she can at least speak the native language, while Andrew is lost. But how can they return to their own time, to their own country of Australia? If they can't get back, they are stuck in the 11th century. Reviewed by S.A.Martin Nov 29 2014
  • The Laird on Dec. 04, 2017

    Anything with a highlander or a man in a kilt and I am hooked. The Laird takes us back to the days when the highlands were unspoiled and the men who lived there were just as rugged. Reviewed by Minnie
  • The Laird on Dec. 04, 2017

    “I enjoyed every minute of this book. Tricia McGill perfectly pulls the reader back in time along with Andrew and Liz, describing the castle and its inhabitants in such detail they fully come to life. Andrew’s aunts, Tilda and Kitty, are gems whose unsolicited advice made me laugh out loud! The dialogue in this story is one of its strongest features, and coupled with an intriguing plot it is a winning combination.” Marlene FAR
  • The Laird on Dec. 04, 2017

    “This is a remarkable book, and Ms. McGill is an outstanding writer. There is rich historical detail of everyday medieval life, and characters who stepped right out of the annuls of history. I love time travel books, and this one is exceptional.” Deborah Brent for Romantic Times
  • The Laird on Dec. 04, 2017

    "This Highland tale has all the majesty of a historical and all the magic of a time travel. However this Scottish pair transcends the centuries in a way sure to surprise the reader. The heroine is a strong capable woman, one of many skills. The hero is equally strong and I imagine even has good legs as he is reputed to look dashing in a kilt. My pleasure in reading this tale opened my visions as I allowed myself to be swept to the Scottish highlands. This is a story that takes you away from the daily mundane and embraces you in a far past time." A. Dee Carey/ Fantasy Novelist
  • A Dream for Lani on Dec. 04, 2017

    Tricia McGill’s lonely heiress is so real that when she is being deliberately willful I just wanted to reach down through the pages and smack some sense into her. But, I kept reading faster and faster because after all, in spite of Ryan’s calloused moods, Lani is the heroine, and things just have to come out happily-ever-after for her.” JoEllen Conger
  • A Dream for Lani on Dec. 04, 2017

    A poor little rich girl, Lani Morgan, has more money than she knows what to do with, but no lasting relationships. Raised by elderly relatives who gave position and possessions but not the kind of love Lani craved, she is captivated by the real family she meets and longs to be part of it. Ryan, the hero, is the father of the family she so admires and someone to whom she is instantly attracted. Along with the romance, Ms. McGill skillfully weaves a delightful daughter, a rebellious son and a fascinating grandfather into the story. The conflict between the proud father and the poor little rich girl will have you turning the pages until the satisfying conclusion.” Allison Knight, author
  • A Dream for Lani on Dec. 04, 2017

    “A charming country setting, some cheeky kids, two amusing dogs, and a cast of other secondary characters help to build the romantic tension to a crescendo. It’s a pure and gentle romance that will surely please the romance genre purists, along with just about any other romance fan out there.” Sarah W Fallen Angels Reviews
  • A Dream for Lani on Dec. 04, 2017

    “I believe this is the best book I have ever read! I probably think something similar when I finish a book, but I have never before printed the words. Lani had relocated to Victoria, Australia, to try to start over. Never again would she allow anyone to get close to her just because she was rich. She wouldn’t lie about it; she would just keep her mouth shut. She had always been quiet and withdrawn from the hub of activity, so that should not be too hard! When she met Ryan, a realtor, she thought she noticed some interest—until she mentioned that she needed a farm to board her horse… Ms. Tricia McGill keeps enticing us into the story with her wit and charming manner of writing. Of course, there is love and there is disaster. The love ebbs and flows and the “near hits and misses” just tug at the heartstrings. The ending may be predictable (after all, who wants a bad ending) but the journey is unforgettable! I urge you to read this winner!” Brenda Talley for TRS
  • Kate's Dilemma on Dec. 06, 2017

    "This is a wonderfully written love story. This romantic situation takes place in Australia and the flavor of the dialogue is most captivating. With each new sentence being spoken by the characters, I found myself caught in an enchanting whirlwind of hearing their charming voices. It was an endearing quality which I enjoyed so much. Tricia McGill has the precise recipe for romance and intrigue all within the pages of this expertly written novel." Reviewed by Patti Oh In The Library Reviews
  • Kate's Dilemma on Dec. 06, 2017

    “This story takes place in and around the Australian seaside. This beautiful backdrop seems to come alive with the lovers’ emotions; storms and sunny days reflect their own journey. Tricia McGill creates stories that are fondly remembered for their strong characters, this is another one you must not miss.” Naomi at FAR
  • Kate's Dilemma on Dec. 06, 2017

    “Kate and Liam possess artistic temperaments, and you know that there are going to be fireworks, you just never know how many or what kind. This is a fun and interesting exploration into love and all its trials. It starts with a pair of matchmaking siblings, is complicated by a teenaged crush, and is upset by mixed signals, and a sizzling attraction that is hard to resist. This contemporary romance is a great adventure into the lives of two people who just don't recognize love when they feel it, and are really fighting a losing battle from the start. Tricia has provided a wonderful cat and mouse relationship, with plenty of sensual overtones. Liam and Kate are an entertaining pair, and I found this a delightful read.” Reviewed by ROSE at Romance at Heart
