    I love Savannah Reid. Aren’t you going to write anymore?

  6. Sheila Weekly: 2 years ago

    I just discovered your novels and really enjoy them. I love every single character in your books and love your style of writing. I particularly that your main character is a strong and extremely intelligent woman. A lot of the other main women characters in mystery novels leave alot to be desired when they put themselves in stupid situations and have to be rescued by their boyfriends. That is a huge turn off and insult to my intelligence.
