I really enjoyed reading this book. I love a good mystery and the author did a great job creating an intricate plot with a wide range of characters. Just when I had my mind made up about one of the characters, she threw in a plot twist that made me understand her motivation and begin to like her a lot more. There are some interesting moral questions that arise and reading about the different settings where the story takes place kept me very intrigued.

I was honored to read K’Anne Meinel’s Flight in exchange for an honest review.
What can I say? I loved the story. I loved the characters. I especially loved when the heartbreaks turned into wonderful new beginnings. I have just spent the last 8 hours finishing this story. I would reread it in a heartbeat, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good read packed with the love of ‘family’, their dedication to one another… with a lot mystery along the way.
Thank you Ms. Meinel for allowing me to read your work. I enjoyed it.

Another great story from K’Anne Meinel. The characters were well rounded and quite interesting. The plot is very believable and had a few twists that I didn’t see coming. I look forward to reading more from this author.

Just when you think you have a grasp on the storyline, Meinel throws another twist in the fire. Her characters continue to surprise you. Meinel has created a great story with a unique curve and characters that you are drawn to, characters you really dislike with a passion, and others you are ambivalent about. She tackles tough subjects and handles them very well. If you are looking for a book to immerse yourself into, check out Flight. You won’t be disappointed.

Doctored, Audiobook ~ Reviews

 Beautifully crafted reunion romance

The opening of the book has Madison receive exotic flowers from a secret admirer. Discovering who sent her the flowers takes her back into the past when she spent time in Africa as a Nurse. There she first met the smart and enigmatic doctor Deanna Cooper and fell slowly in love with her. The fear of gossip and rejection has her end the relationship before they could figure out if their love could flourish.
Ten years later in a hospital in Los Angeles the two woman meet again, the life they led had changed and matured them. They form a tentative friendship in the sometimes hostile environment of a LA Hospital and old feelings start to raise their head.

The story has wonderfully developed characters that draw you in from the first chapter and have you fall in love with them. Exotic places throughout the the book draw you in and the description and narration make it easy to picture Madison and Deanna in the African countryside as well as working side by side ten years later.
K’Anne Meinel has a great way of showing all the little things that just happen in life and make up the big picture of a young woman maturing into adulthood.

I loved the way Amelia Patricks brings the individual characters to life with their own unique voice and draws you deep into the story.

This was a great story, I really enjoyed it. Great how it explained the beginning of the relationship. I would like to say more, but you need to read the book. No spoil alerts here.
Thank you K’Anne Meinel.

 Loved It

This was an excellent, well written book that I didn’t want to stop listening to and I definitely didn’t want it to end. I will definitely be reading and listening to more books written by K’Anne. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars to the performance was because it seemed like some of the characters accents came and went!! Otherwise, fantastic all the way around!

 Even better as an audiobook

I read this book several months ago and really enjoyed it. The narration made it even better. The story is fantastic, and the narrator really captured the characters.

 Decent

If Wilbur Smith wrote lesbian fiction it would be like this. Easy listening, decent storyline.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, July 4, 2018
This review is from: Doctored (Audible Audiobook)
It is a realistic narrative of the difficulty in acceptance of Love when it is judged and wrongly condemned by society!

This novel set in the 1840’s is a wonderful love story between two women in a time where it would not be tolerated.

This is a first for me I’ve never read a love story set back in my great-great-grandmothers day, and I was so very happy that I did. Both characters are very strong-willed and tough, they both fight for what is theirs. I loved this novel for the love you can feel throughout the story and K’Anne does a wonderful job on telling the story and making me care about them. The descriptions and certain words that were used back then where just icing on the cake.

This book transported me to that time and I felt like a fly on the wall the whole time.

I love historical romances, and this book is one of the best lesbian historical romances that I have read. I felt as if I were right beside the characters, feeling every emotion, and being tired for them after their hard work. This is a great read for those you like that Wagons West type of story.

This book is set in the mid – 1800s. It’s about two women who choose to travel west so that they can live their lives together as spouses in a time when two women could not have that kind of relationship. They have been friends since childhood and became lovers as adults. The descriptions of the travels and the lands and all the encounters along the way were phenomenal. It made me feel like I was right there with them. They were an excellent team and you could feel the love and intensity of the relationship together. I haven’t read many historical romances before. I also have never read any of this author’s books before. I did not want this book to end and can’t wait to read the sequel!

I received a copy from the author for an honest review. I loved this book so much. It’s historical fiction at it’s best . The women are so real and their love so real and honest and so much like my family’s love story. My great grandmother and her wife had 48 years of an epic love story that reminds me of this book. The historical details are so accurate and the supporting characters add so much as well. I will be rereading this book often and giving it as gift as well.

I lived the rich scenery and attention to details of travels, trials, and tribulations of this cast. I loved the children and animals and possibilities of a family I hope to read more of SOON.

Before I begin this review in earnest, let me just say that I absolutely hated the cover art. The wagon train in the background does tie in with the story, but the sensationalized exploited looking woman in the foreground does not. Had I not read other books by the author that I enjoyed, I would not have given this one a try.

Now on to the story. This book is a bit like those by Laura Ingalls Wilder, with a lesbian twist. I found myself fascinating by the details of just how much preparation would have been needed prior to heading off on the Oregon Trail, the difficulties during the journey, and the added challenges Molly and Erin had with their brood. The author does a great job of setting the scene and creating characters, both human and animal, that the reader cares for. I am looking forward to reading the sequel, Pioneering.

Can’t believe I’ve I got to wait until August to see what happens next, lol. Erin and Molly along with the kids are great character’s. This is a well written story and I have to say I just loved the early history and I have no problem recommending this book. Keep up the excellent writing.

I enjoyed reading this book and I would highly recommend it. I do not normally read historical fiction, but since I really liked some of this author’s other books, I gave this one a try and was glad that I did. She did a great job placing readers into the 1800’s setting. This story does not have a lot of romantic tension but there is a very strong love story between the two main characters. This is not a standard plot, but this author’s books often have a less conventional story line, which is great if you want something a little different. I loved the way the author developed the characters and made the reader feel like they were back in time with them.

This wasn’t an easy book for me to write.  As I’ve mentioned before, I started it in 2011.  I found the topic to be very depressing, but the idea of it never left me.  Over the years I had added to it as I found information I thought would be good in the story.  I can’t tell you how pleased I am with the reviews I have gotten.  No, they aren’t all five star and they shouldn’t be…this isn’t a perfect book, it isn’t even a perfect story, it is however a very scary scenario that one family could have lived through.  I hope those who read this, will give the book a chance.  In the meantime, here are some of the reviews I have been getting:

I thought this was a great story and I highly recommend it. There is a really interesting story line that sucks you right in. The author did a great job developing the characters and you feel like you get to know everyone while you are rooting for them all to overcome the obstacles that they face in order to survive. This was a well written book that doesn’t follow a standard plot line. There are plenty of shocks and surprises along the way. I really liked both of the two main characters who were good people without being perfect.

Ever wonder what will happen if the world finally does go crazy? K’Anne does a good job giving us an idea! Jodi and Krista just wanted a place to go for peace and quiet. They always hoped that’s what their cabin in the woods would be, a refuge to decompress from the rat race. Little did they know that one day the cabin would become their castle!
I really liked this story and the thought K’Anne put into it! If you want to read a book that you won’t want to put down, start reading Survivors now! It’s well written and well edited! A really good read!
