“Part of McMillen’s genius is her ability to write in a way that resonates for both the novice and the aficionado. You don’t have to be a mystery buff to appreciate this tale, but fans of the whodunit genre will find it more than satisfying. You don’t have to be a seaman to appreciate it, either, but sailors and fishermen will read in McMillen’s descriptions of life on the water the unmistakable ring of authenticity. This is a book that will make new fans for the mystery genre, and seduce city slickers and landlubbers alike with its call of the wild.”
“The rigid expectation of what a “family” should look like is something many of us find stifling as we move toward creating our own. Nowhere is this struggle more keenly felt than in the queer community, which faces social and legal hurdles that make the pursuit of family difficult, impossible, or even dangerous. For this reason, a collection of first-person narratives on queer family is liberating and necessary.” —Quill & Quire Magazine on Bruce Gillespie’s A Family by Any Other Name
“If anyone is eminently qualified to write a guide book on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands food artisans, it is without a doubt Don Genova.” —EAT Magazine
Ethan Jones, author of the Justin Hill spy thriller series, calls Janet Brons’ A Quiet Kill “fascinating… Ms. Brons has created an interesting setup and has weaved an equally intriguing tale. I could not help but think of Agatha Christie’s mysteries as I flipped through the pages.”
"Stan Krumm's new book is another thrilling read ... a brand new colourful cast of characters help narrate the story of Zachary's Horses. A pivotal horse race, a young governess, a blackmailer determined to expose Zachary's past and the title character's grim determination to preserve the new life he's built in Victoria all lend themselves to a great read." —Quesnel Cariboo Observer
