WOW! Another SUPER editorial review! Thank you to the Midwest Book Review for featuring Essie’s Roses in the August 2015 issue of your book review publication Small Press Bookwatch.
“Impressively well written from beginning to end, Essie's Roses is an inherently absorbing and skillfully presented read, establishing author Michelle Muriel as an exceptionally talented novelist. Certain to be an enduringly popular addition to community library General Fiction collections.” -Midwest Book Review
