Confession of a Book Heaux

A Q&A with me:

Tell me why you love Chicago so much! It’s apparent that you have such a love for that city in your books.

My whole family is originally from there! I have very fond memories of visiting my grandparents there before they retired. I loved hearing stories my dad would tell me of his family and when he and my mom were in college at Elmhurst… Read MORE here

Book Reviews & More by Kathy

Another Q&A with me:

If you could describe The Downey Series in three words what would they be?

Three! Have you met me? I could never be so concise. Alright: It’s about love. (contractions don’t count right? ;P)… Read MORE here

Rose’s Book Blog

Another Q&A with me:

Which of your characters would you like to meet in person and why?

Mickey Downey. He is, hands down, the most fun to write character I have in my head. He’s so many incongruent things at once and I think it would be fun to have a philosophical debate with him. Over a glass of whiskey in a jam jar, naturally.

AND a 4/5 Star Review for First, I Love You:

“I’ve never seen anything done like this book before and I thoroughly enjoyed it, unable to put it down and reading the entire night until I was done with it.” Read MORE here And Rose will be reviewing Second of All when she gets a chance. YAY!

Cruising Susan’s Book Reviews

Susan reviewed BOTH First, I Love You and Second of All and gave them a

 5/5 Star Review:

“I would recommend the Downey Trilogy to anyone that loves a mixture of genre’s all wrapped up in one story.  The characters’ relationships with each other are explosive and there is not one moment that lacked interest while I was reading.” Read MORE here

Truly Simply Pink

A 4.5/5 Star Review of First, I Love You:

“The characters have quickly become favorites of mine and when that happens I tend to revisit them…that makes me happy that there is a second book!” Read MORE here Kimberly will be reviewing Second of All as well!

Penelope Jones

A 5/5 Star Review of First, I Love You

“Show me romance weaved into in-depth multi-layered twists and turns, and I will tell you that you have a hit on your hands.” Read MORE here

A 5/5 Star Review of Second of All with an exclusive James & Kiki excerpt!

“The author Genevieve Dewey takes you to the heart of Chicago, and deposits you in the middle of the Downey family. The Godfather meets Romance, that’s how I would describe this book. Each character is unique and quirky, and I feel it allowed the reader to step into one or more of the characters shoes, and walk their path.” Read MORE here

Stories and Swag

A Fantastic Review of First, I Love You

“This story was full of twists and turns, making it completely unpredictable. The plot hooked and held my attention the entire time. Combining all the elements of a detective novel, a gangster novel, a mystery, a romance and family saga drama, First I Love You is the complete package.” Read MORE here

~~~~~

Reading Bliss

A 4/5 Star Review of First, I Love You

“You get just enough background information to understand why the characters do what they do or act the way they do. The epilogue rounds things off well but it is still very much a cliff hanger that leaves you wanting more. Needless to say I absolutely can’t wait to read the next book…” Read MORE here

ReadingRenee

A 5/5 Star Review of First, I Love You

“Jump in and enjoy this book. The author took a story and has tightly woven the fabric in a way that leaves you screaming where is book two . The next is Second of All and I am so excited to write about that one too. Even more excited is this is a debut. I can’t believe that it is not only a debut, but the book totally lives up to the description.” Read MORE here

Ravishing Romances

A 4/5 Star Review of First, I Love You

“I did enjoy the fact that you don’t get to see one love interest story develop here, but three – that felt like a bonus.  I’ve never seen anything done like this book before and I thoroughly enjoyed it.” Read MORE here

Book Fanatic

A 4/5 Star Review of First, I Love You

“This book is very unique.  I have never read a book where there are so  many point of views throughout the entire book… I love Kiki and how smart she is and very feisty.  I feel bad  for her because everybody thinks she is some dumb spoiled brat that has a gangster for a father.  She is nothing like people think.  When her and James meet there is some instant chemistry…Mickey may be a bad man and involved in many illegal activities but he was raised in this world, and it is all he has ever known.  His  love for Mary and Tommy is so sad.  He always loved them from a distance and never stopped loving Mary.” Read MORE here
