5 Kitties for Vestal Virgin!

Vestal Virgin received two great reviews this week. 5 Kitties from Socrates' Book Reviews and 4.5 stars from Mother Lode

Indie authors really appreciate getting reviewed. We do all our own promotion, and reviews really help! Any reviews, even those that are critical the work. But these reviews are gold:

Yvonne at Socrates' says: 

Suzanne Tyrpak transports readers to Ancient Rome when life was much different than it is today. This is a genre I’m unfamiliar with, but since it is a romantic suspense, I decided to try it anway. History isn’t my usual reading choice. However, this book captivated me from the beginning. It drew me right in. I was completely engrossed in this tale of betrayal, angst, murder and romance.

Grace at Mother Lode says:

With a fluid writing style, Suzanne Tyrpak has created a gripping tale that immerses you in another time and culture. From the very beginning, I was pulled into the storyline. The plot is well-paced, with excellent timing on the introduction of characters and situations. Initially, more time is spent getting to know the various characters, and the pace picks up in sync with the increasing tension. Throughout the story, we follow the characters as their lives become inextricably intertwined. Each character plays a very important part in the overall story, and they are very well-developed and interesting in their own right. Although the storyline focuses upon Elissa as she struggles to put her world right, the supporting characters are no minor parts. On the contrary, they are just as engaging and complex as Elissa herself.
