Wild Innocence

This book is definately one to purchase! From the characters, to the story line, to the ending; all of it kept me wanting more. It was original, yet still had that connection to real life and real world situations. It had just the right amount of comedy intertwined with the drama that unfolds in the story. This was an exceptional story told in an exceptional way. I can't wait to read the other books by this author. Very well written!

No Ordinary Love

Not only was this no ordinary love but it was definitely no ordinary book. Moody has done it once again. She has created characters and events we as faithful followers will never for get. If you have not read this book or Moody's other novels, they are all must reads. We are very interested to see where her next book will lead us. I for one, can not wait.

The Black Divorce

Moody Holiday is one of the most imaginative, talented writers I have come across in my career. She not only has a way of telling a story, she tackles issues that have been taboo with grace. Her books are not just a good read, they're fire!
