Editorial Reviews


A romantic thriller  that will satisfy a reader's craving for Victorian pomp and family intrigue.KIRKUS REVIEWS
It's a plot that is just laced with intrigue and suspense. And the information and reveals trickle in at a maddening pace that should keep the reader biting their nails throughout the course of the novel. It's a good ol' fashioned stately house mystery. And we're beside ourselves with enthusiasm while trying to get to the bottom of this enigma. It's a convolved and intricate web of secrets and deceptions.
A.P. judge at BlueCat Fellini
The writer masterfully crafts a convincing zeitgeist via the dialogue. And each character is imbued with a discernible and nuanced characterization through their speech and expressions.It's a high card in an already pretty strong hand. 
The Girl from Colombia is a well-done period piece that is just dripping with visual appeal. We can't help but to feel fully immersed in this world. It strikes an authentic chord with the reader and the descriptions become alive and vibrant in our mind's imagination. It's a retina threatening work, to be certain. It had echoes of ADELE H in terms ofthematic substance and visual style. 
The dialogue was exceptionally standout. It's a story that more than adequately captures the parlance and vernacular of the era. It sounds well researched and considered. It rang every well in terms of genre expectations. It was like stepping into a Jane Austen novel or Julian Fellowes series. It comprehensively scoops up the readers, and deposits them into this very Romantic and bygone era. It certainly plays to a very specific crowd and does what it sets out to do.
 C. V.Judge at BlueCat Fellini
This is a sophisticated piece of storytelling crafted by a writer with a clear understanding of conflict and character. The story flows remarkably well from chapter to chapter, revealing its mysteries piece by piece and always maintaining a high degree of unspoken tension.Amazon reviewer. 
The substance of The Girl from Colombia is riveting. It starts off as the story of an arranged marriage between two nice young people and ends up with proof of blackmail and murder.
The surprise plot twist at the end is well worth the entire read.
Amazon reviewer 
 The writer does an excellent job of establishing a clear tone and atmosphere for the story. It's not pandering or compromising in its ELEVATED presentation and high-brow fare. Some of the descriptive lines read like honey. For instance, "The wash of an image, a watercolor, a soft, hazy image...slender, bare arms, thick, ebony hair that fell carelessly across her shoulders, olive skin that darkened as the sloping muscle that wrapped her ribs fell. The ribs, as she twisted, caged loose, revealing quick hints of bare breasts". POWERFULL WRITING!
 A romantic novel with villains who are quiet evil!
Mr. Johnson and Dr. Edwards are great antagonists. They are complex and fully explored as characters. At times is seems that they are in intense battles with one another ideologically. It's very interesting to see the contradictions in the characters and the society that they live in.
A Story with villains to kill or die for!
Carol Tibaldi. Criminologist and author.
A WONDERFUL ROMANCE: We get a good sense of their courtship and we hope that their story culminates in a pretty satisfying conclusion.
Maria Alvarez




From the Author

Thanks to "life" and "Amazon" for second opportunities. "The Girl from Colombia" was previously published as "No Monsters in New Jersey". This is a new edition and enhanced version of the novel.
I would recommend this book to Young Adult or mature readers, due to sexual content, violence, and a-small amount of profanity.
