Editorial Reviews


"A.B. Michaels is a strong writer who has created compelling, flawed but very likeable characters. Even the more minor characters have interesting backstories, and are just as driven and complicated as the main characters...I think romance readers will enjoy this book, and probably this series, but readers of historical fiction will also like The Art of Love. It's also a quick read, mainly because once you start, you will not want to put it down." - Sabrina Ricci, Digital Pubbing

What Amazon Readers are saying:

"I loved this story. The author describes the history of many historical things in San Francisco. There is an amazing love story with lots of drama. I thought the book was full of emotions with great characters. I think the author did a wonderful job of making you feel the characters pain and love. A great book to read."

"The book is well written, well developed and well paced. Scenes are described so vividly they can be easily pictured. Characters are believable and emotions are heartfelt. An excellent book, highly recommended."

"Heart touching and melting is wonderful. Great tale of struggle and love. Every moment counts with this author. Amazing the way she evokes feelings!"

"What an amazing story of grit, determination and love. This was truly a great read from beginning to end and I fell in love with both Gus and Lia. Thank you!"

"The Art of Love Origins of Sinner's Grove is a compelling story of love and second chances. Mrs. Michaels has created a series that will keep you up until the wee hours of the morning. This is the first book in the series and I for one can not wait to read more by this author."

"Though this is only the second novel of hers that I've read, I'm even more gratified than I was after the first. Her character development, historical setting & plot line is such that I am totally enthralled. I read alot & it's been years since I've come across an author who displays such finesse at her craft. I highly recommend this author & can't wait to read more of her work."

"The Art of Love: Origin of Sinner's Grove by A.B. Michaels weaves a story of love, lust, betrayal, and sacrifice that kept me on edge often unsure whether to cheer or boo a character's decisions as I waited to see if those decisions would succeed or fail."

From the Author

"Toward the end of the Gilded Age (the turn of the twentieth century), San Francisco was an exciting new presence on the world stage - a metropolis built with money from those who'd struck it rich in California and the Klondike. Such wealth and opportunity earned San Francisco one of its many nicknames - "The Golden City."  I grew up near San Francisco, so it was a logical setting for my series, but it was only after researching that particular time period that I discovered so much fascinating history, from the rise of modern art and architecture to the plight of immigrants and the incredible advances in medicine and technology. Throw in the natural disaster for which the city is famous, and you have the ingredients for the kind of page-turning historical fiction I like to write."
