I just found my first review for PERFECT STRANGERS on Amazon.com - - 5 Stars!
Wow! I'm having one of those "I'm not worthy" moments. And while I was looking at myself on Amazon.com, I came across another 5 Star Review for my first book - UNFOLDING THE SHADOWS !5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Strangers is a Great Romantic Thriller,
December 6, 2010ByAmazon Verified PurchaseThis review is from: Perfect Strangers (Paperback)Katie O'Sullivan does a great job developing characters, settings and story lines that you can relate to in the workplace and in your personal life. She perfectly creates the "normal" main character who is a pleasant young woman trying to succeed in the professional world as well as in her love life, the pretty friends, the best friends, the cheaters, players, drunks, eccentrics and of course the gorgeous hunk : ) And what do you get when you mix all of these characters together in "off-season" Cape Cod? Plenty of gossip, fun, romance and a fast paced novel with twists and turns that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I won't say anymore so as not to spoil the plot. I recommend this book to all those who read this review and look forward to Katie's next novel.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read!,

Great first novel by Katie O'Sullivan, and I'm really looking forward to her sequels and new
Do you read reviews? Seek them out? If you're a writer, do you worry about getting good or bad reviews? If you're a reader, do you listen to reviews to make purchasing decisions? How much do reviews matter to you?
To me, finding a good review is validating - finding a great review is humbling. What nice Christmas presents to find, even if they're not under the tree.
