"Star Ferris does a remarkable job of combining two strong personalities of her main adult characters and a very perceptive child with her quirky secondary characters and a bit of mystery and suspense to boot."
--Joni, TwoLips reviews
"The main characters are written strongly, made [even] more believable by the secondary characters."

Rating *** Stars (out of four)
"...Among the wild Oklahoma terrain with its starry nights, love blooms with surprises in the air and passionate kisses bringing two lost souls to one another. I fell in love with Jennifer’s reluctance in seeing how beautiful the ranch really is and with the temptation of succumbing to Jace’s kisses. Man this man sure knows how to distract yet his past interferes with his relationship towards her. I especially loved Aaron also for this teenager sure has grown up so fast since his father passed away. This is a great contemporary romance filled with a gorgeous real life cowboy that will make any woman tingle with his seduction and Jennifer’s determination to make it on her own. Star Ferris did a great job with Mending Fences being her first book and will surely go far with her imagination and talent in creating such a beautiful story come to life with memorable characters."
