Reviews for
The Birthday Gift

When fifty-four year old Rose's daughter Daphne turns up on Rose's doorstep pregnant and wanting money for an abortion, Rose sees this as her chance to be the mother she wanted to be to Daphne. She convinces her daughter to have the baby and to let Rose adopt the child. The road toward that end isn't easy, but Rose overcomes the obstacles life puts in her path, just as she's always done. Rose is smart and energetic, working odd jobs to make ends meet and despite Daphne's negative opinion of Rose, she's always had her daughter's best interest at heart.
The character's flaws realistic and the setting is vivid and imaginable and the story has plenty of twists and turns. The read is a good one and definitely worth your time.                                                                      Bliss Addison  ~  Author of A Waning Moon

Reviews for A Perfect Body

A Perfect Body is a good read. I like how it expresses the dangers of anorexia. Cassandra Barnes explores the dangers and bad influences by which anorexia can destroy the body. She relays a good story of how teenagers will do anything to follow the modern craze of looking good and fit. I like how she digs deep into the heart and soul of Madeleine and brings out her inner self, too. She and Luke so deserve to find that one love to last a lifetime. All the players are crafted in such a life-like form that this reader felt as if she was right in the middle of a real event going on in this delightful read.

Cassandra Barnes takes a serious issue and wraps a powerful love story around harrowing details that inform the reader of the terrible and sometimes catastrophic results of anorexia and bulimia. She's researched her subject thoroughly and shares her information in a truly inspirational manner, that build her characters into fully rounded people her readers will relate to. Into this mix she adds jealousies, betrayals, and secondary characters who all play their parts to perfection.
This is a must read book, and once you've read this one,  you'll want to search for her previous two books, and read them too. Cassandra Barnes is a name to watch out for.
She never disappoints.

Reviews for Acts of Love

Amanda Reed treasures the life she's created for herself, but two murders and past mistakes threaten to destroy her new-found love and endangers her life. Acts of Love is a suspenseful, compelling tale of love and betrayal.  Cassandra Barnes does a first-rate job of rousing the reader's emotions.  A must read. 
~~Bliss Addison, author of Wolfe, She Cried; Battle of Wills; With Malicious Intent.

Cassandra Barnes's skill in creating engaging characters and layered plotting makes Acts of Love another winner for her.  She expertly interweaves mystery and romance to reveal the hidden depths of her characters as they struggle with the ways that love can go wrong.  Acts of Love is intriguing, gripping, and gratifying.  I couldn't put it down.  --  Pinkie Paranya,  Award-winning author of early American historicals, romances, cozy mysteries, thrillers and adventure.
