Reviews of Jake ...

"Exciting and soul searching, JAKE is bound to win Leigh Greenwood new fans. The plot is snappy and fast moving. The focus is constant and the conflict sharp. Secondary characters, as well as the protagonists, develop in strength and intensity throughout the story. Through character interaction, readers see deep emotional trauma beneath a blanket of humor. Only a master craftsman can create so many strong characters and keep them completely individualized. Greenwood's books are bound to become classics."
Mary Thompson, Rendezvous

"Leigh Greenwood has proved his staying power with his Seven Brides series. And if this reviewer's visionary abilities are right, this series will prove to be even stronger. What a fine blending of common sense, discipline and understanding of "boy stuff". Define this as unusually perceptive writing with a love story bringing East and West together, forging an unusual dynasty to be sure." - Barbara Wren, Heartland Critiques
