    5 star review from Fallen Angel Reviews
    Fallen Angel Reviews Recommended Read Award
    4 1/2 star review from BTSemag and 2014 BTSemag Red Carpet Book Award Nominee

    5 Angels! "Christmas in Amethyst is a suspense-filled thriller, an unlikely sort of Christmas story but one whose selfless love of mother for son is heartwarming. A single mother sacrifices her own desires to give her young son something he'll love, but her devotion may cost her more than she intended it to. I have to say that the setting is so original that it's a character on its own. I would gladly love a first-hand look at Amethyst, especially the pristine lake. Another strength that flows through these four stories is the way this author writes her characters, so filled with human emotion in such a wide range. I felt a connection to the characters in this book. I wanted happy things for the good ones and waited for the creepy guys to get their due! This is a very entertaining book, one I highly recommend reading." ~Fallen Angel Reviews
    "Ms. Wiesner has created a wonderful town with colorful characters and continuous excitement. Amethyst is a small town riddled with jealousy, mystery and romance. Her vivid descriptions make the main characters come alive. The rivalry between the two sisters, Melina and Lona Rose, is totally believable. The men who live in Amethyst are sexy and powerful. Don't miss the wonderful town of Amethyst where anything is possible and the colorful townspeople that live there." ~Writers Unlimited
    4 1/2 Books! "This contemporary story all take place in the small town of Amethyst where the characters' lives intersect, drawing you into the drama of small town life. Christmas in Amethyst, follows single mother Sheila and Police Officer Jeb. Sheila was deceived by the wrong guy and is now raising her son alone and trying to make the best of things while wishing she could change the past. She is a character easy to relate to. Each of us has things in our life we regret, second chances that we long for. This is a story of a hurting soul who doesn't believe she is worthy of another chance. There are some creepy elements that are, nevertheless, real and tragic. Karen Wiesner takes a bold step by wading into dark waters. The antagonist isn’t your average, selfish, greedyp person. He’s a psychopath, whose choices and decisions cannot be rationalized or explained. This made for a very unique and interesting story with unexpected twists. I read this one late at night and found myself peeking around dark corners long after the book was finished. Karen Wiesner uses finely tuned skills to draw the reader in and make you live the story. She tugs at your heartstrings, pumps your adrenaline and sends you falling into love. And all with a masterful attack of words." ~Long and Short Reviews
    4 Hearts! “The tiny town of Amethyst keeps the reader engaged. The continuing threads and characters make for a most enjoyable read. The characters are engaging—especially Sheila's adorable child Devlin. Author Wiesner lets the reader know you can go home again." ~The Romance Studio
    4 Stars! "I think this series begs to be read in its entirety. I look forward to more adventures from this quirky town. This story gives wonderful insight to the human mind and how we can so easily misinterpret what happens around us. Without giving away too much plot, a dangerous situation arises after Sheila gets off work. Can Jeb reach her in time? Will they ever get to share their true thoughts? You won't be able to put this one down. It picks up speed and you'll stay up all night to finish the story." ~Once Upon A Romance Review

    Short, fun read.

    Single Mom Sheila Mason has returned to Amethyst after her divorce from her son's father. She grew up in this small town and had planned on marrying her childhood boyfriend after college. However, after a short whirlwind romance at college she eloped with Travis and subsequently bore him a son, Dev. The marriage was doomed and when it ended, she and Dev returned to Amethyst. Her childhood friend, Jeb, was now the town sheriff and still very much in love with her.
    This is a short story, with a good plot line, well written. I enjoyed the book and look forward to more from this author.
