Critical Praise:
Maggie Bishop brings a vast knowledge of the Appalachian region . . . displays the unique ability to draw the reader into each setting with vivid description, to the point that the reader feels part of the scene. . . . well-paced, the characters deftly drawn, the chemistry . . . searing, and the romantic story teasing enough to leave the reader anxiously waiting for "the moment". – Christy Tillery French, Midwest Book Review


[D]elightful romance with strong main characters the reader will grow to like and admire. . . . Their hike through the mountains is the perfect time for love to bloom amidst the calm and beauty of the Appalachians, vividly described in colorful detail.
– Astrid Kinn, Romance Reviews Today

[R]romantic adventure that will touch your heart in all the right places. Ms. Bishop spins a beautiful love story that will make you laugh, cry, and sigh. It's about redemption, renewal, hope and taking a chance on finding the partner of your dreams if you're willing to take a chance on love. I'm putting APPALACHIAN PARADISE on my keeper shelf to reread whenever I need a lift. Yes, it's that good!
– Suzanne Coleburn, The Belles and Beaux of Romance

Maggie Bishop's novel "Appalachian Paradise" is a romance that gets off to a good start and maintains an exciting tension that manages to carry to the end. . . . A good part of Bishop's success is the set-up she's engineered.
– Rob Neufeld, Asheville Citizen -Times

A devil-may-care hero, a feisty heroine and rich Appalachian flavor combine to make Maggie Bishop's first romance a rewarding read.– Karen Rose Smith, award-winning author of 74 romance novels.
Wish you could spend days trekking over pristine North Carolina mountains? Put your feet up, instead, and follow this pair on their Appalachian climb with camp-out nights, bear sightings, and love-making under the stars.– Marian Coe, award-winning author of Once Upon a Different Time

Along the trail, Wes and Suzanne quarrel, bicker, banter, tease, learn, and, in the course of natural science, fall in love (and lust). Suzanne̓s flaws are such that we root for her to work them out, for Wes to wake her up, and for both of them to make each other happy. I can think of few better ways to spend a snowy day. A wonderful Mountain Beach Book. – Carolina Mountain Living
