 “All throughout Toxic Relationship, I laughed my butt off!”  JenRen, TE Garden of Book Bloggers
 “The characters in this story are awesome.  The story is steady, we meet a man changing into a woman, the doofusses, a love story gone wrong, a psychopath dentist with higher aspirations than sense, and a killer who was scarier than zombies.   I think for a mystery, adventure and laugh out loud funny read, you wouldn’t go wrong with Toxic Relationship.” Beth Cutwright, Beth Art from the Heart
 Five Stars.  One of the most enjoyable books I have read in quite a while, this book was remarkably easy for me to get into.  I loved the characters, in particular, the bad guy characters! … If you are looking for something just a bit different, something that will seduce you into forgetting about your undone chores, then this book is for you, too. Laurie’s Thoughts and Reviews
