Redford Falls Book 7

Goodreads - Five Stars!

"There is a delightful touch of myth and magic and the Redford Falls rabbit also makes an appearance. This well thought-out story has believable and relatable characters and the pacing keeps the story moving. The relationship between Jade and Eric is a beautiful reminder of all those exciting feelings that are so special and unique when meeting and being with someone for the first time. As with all of Darlene Fredette's books, I enjoyed this one and recommend Trickster and all her books for a satisfying read that will leave you smiling."

"Trickster by Darlene Fredette tricked me! What I love most about Darlene Fredette’s Redford Falls book series is the epic, plot twists in each book. I’m entertained from cover to cover because I can’t predict where her storyline will go next, and Trickster is no different. Well-constructed and compact, I can’t believe all the conflicts she jammed into this novella."

Cherry Red

"First of all, what a fun cover. This is a perfect little read to cuddle up with during the approaching Fall days. And it features ice cream and firemen…what more could you want? I always enjoy Darlene Fredette’s writing, and although a quick read, the characters were well developed and showed growth. A happy little escape."
~ 5 Star Review, Gini Rifkin

"If you're looking for a "feel-good" romance with lots of witty banter and fun, this is the story for you. Great story, fun romance, well-developed characters make this book a joy to read."
~ 5 Stars Goodreads Review, Hebby Roman

Under The Apple Blossoms
Redford Falls Book 3

"I was surprised at the depth of feelings and emotions, as well as history in this book. The author is to be praised for her expert handling of age-old secrets, a family feud, and dysfunctional family members who split up the heroine and hero when they were in love. This is an engrossing romance with expertly drawn characters--don't miss reading it!"
~ 5 Stars Goodreads Review, Hebby Roman, Author
"Author Fredette has conceived a simple story populated with likeable and honest characters with logical and realistic goals, compelling motivation, facing insurmountable conflict. The formula may seem simple, however to carry it off with effortless ease is a task she is clearly up to. Well done!! On a scale of 1-5, Under the Apple Blossoms deserves a 5."
~ Goodreads Review, Kat Henry Doran, Wild Women Reviews

Kissed By Winter
Redford Falls Book 2
(previous version Winter’s Kiss)

~ 5 Stars Gini Rifkin, Author

"A Charming Love Story. I truly enjoyed this book. It was a darling romance, reminiscent of a Hallmark movie. The characters were not only likable, they were easy to connect to. I would highly recommend this book to anyone in search of a cozy adventure in love. Well done."
