"I think of the writing as 'soft'-a gentle watercolor as opposed to the often bold and bright images of modern art."
"I was pleased by the way Ms. Kinzer didn't quite take the expected way out. For a read that gives you a satisfied 'Ahh...' feeling, I recommend Hope's Design."
"The author has a way of making you want to come and sit with the characters over a cup of tea and talk about life. There is a sense of longing to be part of a town that she paints in the book."
"This is a book that once started, you never want to put down until you're finished and it has left me longing for the next one in the series."
"Hope's Design does not disappoint. Once again, Dawn Kinzer writes with such warmth and excitement keeping us captivated to the very end."
"I would get excited to know what would happen and wanted to hurry the book up but at the same time I didn't want the book to end."
