Necessary Evil Five Star Review

Five Star Review for A Letter From Yesay

Romantic Suspense at its best! I don’t think there is a romantic suspense fan alive who would be able to read the prologue to “A Letter from Yesay” without wanting to immediately devour the rest of the book. That’s what I did. Author Stephanie Freeman has nailed both the “romance” half and the “suspense” half of her genre with this compelling story of a young woman whose life has gone off the rails and the devoted friend and long-estranged brother who meet trying to sort out exactly what happened to her.
