Book Review: The Family Cross by Gabrielle Ash

I was excited to get a copy of The Family Cross by Gabrielle Ash from Netgalley. It didn’t disappoint.

There was something lovable about Matilda and Samson. They were complex and unpredictable. I loved reading their journey and near the end I couldn’t put the book down. I lost sleep in the best way possible.

The story twisted and turned, keeping me guessing who did what and why.

Normally I don’t enjoy reading first person books, but the author wrote it so well that I barely noticed.

I have to say, I was surprised to like a supernatural contemporary book. I usually read historical or high fantasy.

That bring said, I can’t wait to read what happens next!

Author update

It’s been a while since I’ve done an update on my progress as an author. Let me start by saying how thankful I am for all the love and support I’ve received over the last few years.

I’m currently writing my 6th book which is the second in a new series. I now have three series. Two are in progress.

My first series, I have 3 books written. They will go out on submission soon. They take place during the American Revolution and follow 3 different women in their quest for love

My second series has one book written, and it is on submission and looking for a home (fingers crossed). This series is during the Regency in Yorkshire. It’s about a group of witches and how they manage their abilities. In my typical fashion, they are also love stories

My third series is in progress. I have one book written in need of edits and the one I’m writing. This series is different fairytale retellings. The first is Snow White and the second Cinderella. I haven’t decided on a third, but I’m thinking of doing something different.

I may have to go back and write more in the second series soon. I have a plan for 2 more books with potential for more.

In any case, I’m hard at work building my platform and backlist. This whole process has been like a dream for me, and I’m excited to see where it goes.
