More About the Author
I devoured my first romance novel when I was a teenager. I couldn't read them fast enough. Years later I stumbled across my first paranormal romance...an injustice would be done if I tried to explain my joy when I found this genre of romance. My passion was finally in print.
Now, with the help of my bizarre dreams and crazy imagination, I have started to write and intend to share my stories with you. I hope you'll love them as much as I do.
I am truly blessed. My husband and my animals are my inspiration. We live on a small acreage in Didsbury, Alberta, with our most beloved companions, Dozer, Daisy and Mandarin.
Happy reading everyone, I sure would love to hear from you. www.lawnamackie.ca

Other than the speed of the romance between the boys' mother and the trapper, I can't suggest anything to improve. Engaging characters responding appropriately in a difficult circumstance in a historical novel.
and just enough of the paranormal to keep my interest without turning me off.
well done Ms Mackie.
I was intrigued with Jazira and with Quinn right out of the gate. There was no lapse in reading and the feeling where you wonder so often - 'is it going to get somewhere?' Not the case here! I was immersed into the story and found that I had to keep going back and picking it up every chance I could until I found the hours ticking well past 3:00am.
Set in the world of the early west when trappers and settlers forged new lives. I became immediately connected with Quinn and his mother Amanda. The tale was rich with descriptions that drew me into a world both believable and yet not that surreal for a paranormal. If it wasn't for Jazira - I would have thought it to be a wonderful and heart warming historical romance. Yet..., there she was - Jazira. Her plight more than once gave cause for my heart to skip a beat or two and as I do not want to give anything away in this wonderful tale; can only say I was very pleased with the outcome and yes, there were a few nice surprises. Bandit Creek does indeed keep you guessing.
As a reader who wants to be carried away and lost into the depths of tales of love, suspense and intrigue, I would be remiss if I did not say that this story warmed my soul on a cold prairie night.
Then Jazira comes along. She is an eleven-year-old girl turned into a very large wolf after having drowned in the town's flood the previous year. She is saved from Lost Lake by Samuel and then befriends Quinn. The two quickly become the best of friends, but things turn sour when the townspeople want her dead. Jazira quickly settles in your heart and you find yourself rooting for her.
There is one minor character I enjoyed that makes repeated appearances, named Jack, who is constantly drunk, and spews out 'warnings' or 'predictions' by spitting his whiskey in the snow and looking at the pattern. This lovable village shaman is just another dimension the author has added to a charming story filled with emotion.
The antagonist is the rich and powerful Mr. Ellis who wants Amanda as his wife. He's even willing to have his son beat up Quinn to make Amanda agree to this arrangement. So you can imagine what he thinks when he finds the very handsome...didn't I say that before? Yes, I did, as I was saying...Read more ›

For a story happening in 1912, the writer should have made a bit more research. Washroom in the houses????? Read morePublished 20 months ago by Nicole

This is a lovely story, about love of different kinds and second chances. Also has a touch of fantasy that makes it different and insteresting ( at least for me ). Read morePublished on April 14, 2013 by Veronica

I really enjoyed this story. I'm not usually one for romance novels but after just finishing a rather dark and heavy series of books I needed something a little lighter - cheerier. Read morePublished on January 7, 2013 by Kim Attebery
