About the Author

I have always believed in fairy tales and when I got tired of the old ones I made up my own. Each story would have a hero and heroine, but they were anything but typical. 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 QUINN’S CHRISTMAS WISH – December 1, 2011 available through Amazon and Smashwords.

I read Quinn's Christmas Wish today and thoroughly enjoyed it. An intriguing story about life in a small Montana town after most of it was wiped out by a flood. The book explored the impact of those events on a 12 year old boy and his mother. I found the sex/relationship between the mother and the newcomer to town a little too quick for my taste, but it is a novella, so everything happens in a hurry. That being said, the author did a masterful job of getting enough details and emotions to make this book an entertaining read.

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.

Loved this book! The connection between Samuel and Amanda was immediate. Such a fiery romance between the two. Poor Quinn with all his trials and heartbreak at least is finally able to find a friend in the most unlikely place, Jazira, a fantastical talking wolf. Jazira is able to survive in this world only due to the kindness of Quinn, Samuel and Amanda, but gives back more than what she has received. Lawna made me cry twice with this story, once in despair, and then again in happiness! Looking forward to Ms. Mackie's other two books coming out in December and January, and looking forward to more Bandit Creek Books!

Ms. Mackie weaves a tale of hardship and love with a mix of mystery and a surprising twist thrown in at the end. A great read for young and old alike.

I liked the compassion Samuel had for Amanda and her son Quinn and the things he did to help them.
I also really enjoyed the bond that developed between Quinn and the she-wolf that he found in the woods, and the dedication that the she-wolf showed to his family.

(Small spoiler) The 10% of the book that I didn't care for.

I'm not a big fan of *lust at first sight* type of stories. I believe it's more romantic if the characters invest time getting to know each other, forming a bond that can be built upon. That's why I was disappointed that Amanda and Samuel slept together barely 24 hours after they met. It seemed rushed, like a sex scene was thrown in just for the sake of having a sex scene in the book. In my opinion the story would have been more romantic if that part had been left out.

For a story happening in 1912, the writer should have made a bit more research. Washroom in the houses????? I think that most household at that time did’nt even had inside plumming and women had to hauled water into the home each day and hauled back out. Also most women were not as promiscuous in those day so sex at first site, in a very small town as this one, is, as far as I am concerned another anomaly. Some reviewers said that they cried while reading this book, well I guess I do not cry as easily as them because I found no reason sad enough to make me cry. Otherwise, it was a well written book, good enough as a quick and easy read and also very predictable.

So many times as of late I have started to read a new book that seems to ramble and get lost in words without any real meaning. Quinn's Christmas Wish was not like this at all. My interest was peaked right at the start as the tale was spun into a very good - what I would call; a paranormal suspense!

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.

This was my introduction to Lawna's fertile mind, a real fun piece of craftsmanship. It comes very close to recreating the hardships of a century ago. You know where the plot is going to take you, and the ride is enjoyable.
