Here’s what people are saying about Jo’s books:

“I love the delicate balance of respect and honesty Ms. McNally gave to the veterans and PTSD. She made Cole real, showing how a man could be strong and fragile at the same time.”

“The characters and settings came alive with the author’s descriptions. Both Whitney and Luke each have hurdles to overcome to open their hearts to true love. When you add in Aunt Helen with her crazy book club octogenarians adding their shenanigans to the story, you’ll find yourself laughing and crying. This was a wonderful story and I’m looking forward to the next story in the Rendezvous Falls series as well as other books by Jo McNally!”

“How Asher and Nora deal with each other when they’d prefer not to (but can’t seem to help themselves) and the prospect of that new grandson makes for a story that kept me up all night as they tried to make lemonade out of lots of lemons…”

“The connection between Cole and Bree was tangible. I laughed with them at their banter and play, I swooned from the intense passion their shared, I was in tears from the torment and hurt they had to go through, and I cheered for them to find their ‘home’, their place in the world, their peace of mind, and ability to move on with life.”

“It is one of those “just one more chapter” books where you just have to find out what happens next. I loved the characters who interact honestly and with humor. They are all immensely likable as they struggle with past ghosts and present problems.”

“The way the author deals with the hero’s PTSD is written in one of the most original and meaningful ways that I’ve read yet.”

“But the author has managed to intertwine joy and humor in a subtle way even to the direst scenes where your heart is aching to the characters, you have tears in your eyes, yet you are smiling because, in midst of it all, there’s pride, bliss, and wonder of life.”

“A beautifully written love story about two completely opposite people who find healing and love with each other.”

“Ms. McNally writes a story filled with touching moments and scenes that will make you laugh out loud. She is definitely an author everyone should add to their auto-buy list.”She's Far From Hollywood
