Reviews for Burning Through

I've been extremely gratified to see the reviews that are coming in for my new book, Burning Through. I want to publicly thank everyone who's read the book and responded with a review; as you may or may not know, reviews are the lifeblood of an author. Your honest appraisal and heartfelt comments mean more to me and new readers than you will ever know. Just a few sentences make all the difference in the world. Thanks for taking the time, both to read and to review. Readers rock!

This book crosses many genres as it twists and turns through the workings of love, romance, suspense and what we view as right and wrong in this sometimes patriarchal society. Great for anyone liking mystery, romance and empowering reading, there is an underlying feel-good flow to it. A read you won't want to put down until it ends and then the feeling like a good friend just left the room. --BG

When I finished this book last night I was somewhat sorry to see it end. This is a common occurrence for me with Melissa's books because she has the ability to create well developed characters the reader wants to hear more about. I enjoyed Burning Through very much and looked forward to settling in and reading a few more chapters each day. Another keeper!!! --LG

My husband and I have read a number of Melissa's books, we are in awe how concise and vivid she can describe the characters or surroundings. Her latest book did not disappoint, it was a quick, easy and enjoyable read. We look forward to her next book. 

Burning Through is an excellent book. It has everything I like in a good read. The author not only keeps you guessing what is coming next, she also has added mystery and even a little romance to it. This is a book you won't want to lay down until you have finished it. I would not only give as a gift but would recommend this book to all. -–LP

This book is an easy read, that grabs you from the very start with believable characters and very real situations. As the story and the characters evolved, I found myself wishing for a particular ending, being teased along the way. The natural and the supernatural coexist in this well written book, where the words feel comfortable and familiar, yet keep you wondering until the very end. A perfect read for any day. –-RA

This story has a little of everything: drama, mystery, suspense, and humor - especially in how the ghosts came by their names. I can't reveal the details, you'll have to read the book to find out for yourself! A quick read - I usually only read before I drift off to sleep at night. I found I was looking forward to bedtime so I could enjoy more of the story. You can't go wrong with this book! --MC

I finished this book fast. It was an engaging read, and I found myself thinking about it, the main character Jen, and her relationship with the ghosts. For me, this is a benchmark of a very well-written book. If I am trying to carve out time to read something it is good.
The story opens with Jen and her jerk of a husband moving into an old home in a small town. An old woman appears in the house just as a fire starts on the stove. Does the ghost want them to leave? Perhaps not. Jen is curious and works to get to the bottom of the mysterious fires that occur with increasing frequency. The fire captain has more than one fire to deal with – the house fires and the physical one burning for an unhappily married Jen.
I liked Jen a lot, and wished that there was a way for the story to continue. Maybe she could be a ghost hunter? In any case, I strongly recommend this book. You will enjoy it immensely.
