Bitter Roots by Jarek Adams

Feedback from the Romantic Novelist’s Association
Reader 1: I loved your book. I read it almost at a sitting I was so wrapped up in it and that doesn’t happen often, believe me! It is an unusual plot and nicely handled with a good climax.

Reader 2: Overall I think this is one of the best, if not the best, manuscripts I’ve appraised. You write well and have a good control over the storyline. Your characters are well drawn and dialogue is good. I enjoyed the book and read it quickly. The characters remained with me even when I wasn’t reading.

But eleven years later she returns to the island and battles to escape her past of mysterious occult practices and tragic deaths.
