“…Cocoa Almond Darling quickly blew past my initial low expectations to become one of my more surprisingly great reads so far of this young year, and it comes recommended in that specific spirit.” -Jason Pettus
“…Once I picked it up, I didn’t put it down until I had finished it at three o’clock in the morning because I was that absorbed in the story. Once I got into and got to know Milly, I just had to know what happened to her. She is a wonderful character. I almost feel like she is a real person that I know now.
It is also the best story I have read about race issues in a long time. This story brings to light the differences between black and white, and what it is like when they fall in love. Even with racism not often an issue, this novel highlights the other issues that exist with this type of relationship.
The book is heartbreaking and wonderful and a must read for anyone interested in race-relationships.” -Kathy Schneider
“A captivating story that was told in an orginal style which made it all the more real. This is the second that I have read by this author which left me emotionally involved.” -Suzy Stewart Dubot
