I Love Cat Collier Mysteries!
I absolutely love these mysteries! I love Cat Collier and how she rolls with life. I’d die to have her fiancé Carter and his father as my in law. Nola cracks me up and this time I really thought she would fashion herself out of trouble. I love the mystery part of the book and how all the books tie together. This one was really good because of the other books being brought back in and you got some answers. These characters are fabulous together and they make the book exciting. I can’t wait until the next book to come out!
“Echo of Heartbreak, A Recipe for Life” is a short story written in the form of a letter from a very ill mother to her unborn daughter, telling her the incidents surrounding her birth, giving her advice on life, and leaving her the best of her family recipes.
Easy to follow life lessons as well as recipes……
Echo of a Heartbreak is an excellent book. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the life lessons given in this book as well as the down to earth recipes Carol gave the readers. Unfortunately, I was in tears as I reread this book. However, I am relieved the essence of Melina lives on in her daughter in McKelvey House. I am going to try some of the recipes that are clearly given in this book. The author cleverly goes from storyline into her enclosed recipes. I have reread this book several times and enjoy it every time. Thank You.

Another great book by Carol Ann Kauffman
I have read and enjoyed the MacKalvey House, so I decided to try another book by Carol Ann Kauffman. I liked this one even more. Richard and Nicole are soul mates who search for each other one lifetime after another, desperate to be in each other’s arms. Misha Lockhart (Nicole) doesn’t remember Richard, but no one can fill the void in her heart until he knocks on her door. His name is Mick Kiley now, but his name doesn’t matter. He is Richard…her Richard. But life is never that simple, and after so many lifetimes struggling to be together, they both know it. People and circumstances are trying to tear them apart, and I kept reading, hoping they’ll find happiness… Wait for me was another great book by Carol Ann Kauffman.
Ambassador Tull Redmond is looking for a quick ride home back to Earth after ending her twenty-year mission as a peace negotiator. All she wants is peace, quiet, and to be left alone. She boards the Earth Starship Giuseppe Verdi with its questionable leader, Captain Ben Jacobs anyway. It’s the fastest way home. Her quarters has a full bath, a space view window, and a large, real bed! How bad could this rule-breaking, authority-defying Captain Casanova be? High Council hates him, true, but his crew loves him. Surely, she’s too old and tired to be drawn into this bad boy of the quadrant’s personal circus. Will Ambassador Redmond get the quiet, uneventful ride home she craves?
A great story.
‘The Captain and The Ambassador’ is an enjoyable blend of science fiction adventure, space-travel and lighthearted romance, with some well-developed mystery and drama woven through the story, infusing it with greater depth and tension.
Regardless of the fact that the book is largely set beyond earth, Kauffman demonstrates the universal truths of human nature through her characters. It’s easy to see that a character in a book is putting other concerns ahead of those of the heart, but on reflection, the reader understands that this is very often the sort of limitation that an individual puts on oneself for one or more different reasons. It takes only a little empathy for the reader to want the heroes of the story to end up happy, but this also carries the reminder that it’s important for each individual, reader included, to choose the life that makes them happy, too.
Whether it’s because they have enjoyed them or because they haven’t, everyone understands the value and importance of acceptance, love, personal freedom and justice, and it is those qualities that make ‘The Captain and The Ambassador’ a satisfying and enjoyable read.

Carol Ann Kauffman is showing a different side of Romance, how many are there of you out there? Reviewed in the United States on February 7, 2017
This story is completely different from all the other books I have read by Carol Ann Kauffman. You get to see another side of her creative mind and I love it. She had me guessing all throught the book. She filled it with mystery, suspence, romance and paranormal. Her style is the same as her other work, maybe even better. Open door ways can be wonderful and yet confussing to some. But to go throught a door way and wake up not knowing who you are or where you are can be unusal. Sam doesent remember parts of her life. Her husband is telling her that she hit her head and has memory loss. But she doesn’t know who he is either.

As the story goes on, you find yourself trying to figure out why there are clones and who made them. Why would someone want more than one person that looks the same?

Will issues of abandonment at birth stop her from trusting him? Can they find happiness together despite their major differences? Or will old family scars and secrets keep them apart forever?
A love story I couldn’t put down.
I love Kauffman’s Time After Time Series. MacKalvey House is my favorite so far. Kauffman has a fantastic imagination and places these two lovers in different times and different situations. MacKalvey House is current times and takes place in England. I think the characters interact perfectly, whether it be good or bad and make you feel for them. I look forward to reading many more Time After Time books by Kauffman.

The characters are extremely likeable and the story itself is a cute picture of life in a small town where everyone knows everyone else. Ms. Kauffman has done a fantastic job in keeping the readers attention with the fast enjoyable read. Five stars for a lovely piece of story telling.
