Dandelions Never Die Book 5 - Six Angels
 
 
Contemporary romance
Rating: 5 Cups

Special Agent Keegan Tanner is working undercover to bust up a child trafficking ring. But, someone has blown his cover, and his life is in danger. He is in an auto accident and finds himself in a nurse’s home with five angelic looking girls.

Lizzy Anderson is a young widow whose husband was killed in Iraq. She has five little girls she must now raise on her own. She is looking for a way to work and spend time with her daughters so she takes on a patient in her home.

Lizzy does not know Keegan’s true identity or that she and her children may be in danger. The attraction they both seem to feel is bigger than them both but will Lizzy feel the same when she learns the truth?

What a thrilling read. Excitement and romance all rolled in one. I love the five little angels. Who would not fall in love with them? Although this is fifth in the Dandelions series, each book stands alone. I am looking forward to reading more of McCartney Green’s work.

Dandelions Never Die Book 3 - A Place Called Home
 
 
Official Apex Reviews Rating: 5 Stars
 
After she’s betrayed by those closest to her, Lisa sets off on a cross-country quest in search of a home she’s never known. Ultimately, she finds herself in the town of Pine Forest - and in the arms of Chaz Stewart - and for the first time, she learns what it’s like to have a home and be surrounded by family and friends who truly love her. Of course, not everyone in Lisa’s adopted home town is quite so welcoming, and she soon discovers that someone will stop at nothing until she’s gone...
 
Book 3 in the Dandelions Series, A Place Called Home is a well crafted, enthralling read. In it, author McCartney Green presents vivid characters in realistic scenarios with which readers from all backgrounds will easily relate. Through her courageous protagonist, she also successfully manages to evoke both sympathy and empathy from anyone familiar with the struggles that stem from a life plagued by circumstances lying outside the realm of our control. Despite the difficulties that threaten her new-found peace and security, though, Lisa refuses to play the hapless victim, and the strength and resilience that she displays in the face of daunting adversity is something to be admired.

A gritty and tough - yet ultimately rewarding read, A Place Called Home is a shining literary jewel just waiting to be discovered. Be on the lookout for more from this promising new scribe.

An excellent story of how a woman takes a hurtful, horrible situation and turns it around to be a catalyst for strength and happiness. It gives women who have been brutally attacked eternal hope. It will shine a light for those in the darkest of hours and show the path that should be traveled, a path that will lead to victory. and peace.  Great Read!

 "It is not enough to say that I could not put this book down, even though that certainly is true. I absolutely love to read fiction, but romance novels are not my typical first pick. So needless to say I was somewhat skeptical before I began reading Dandelions Never Die. However, my doubts were immediately thwarted once... I opened the book. McCartney Green touches on such a wide breadth of issues apart from romance; issues including spirituality, acceptance, forgiveness, rape, violence, building trust, etc. She keeps her stories grounded through her wit and matter-of-fact dialogue. I found myself empathizing with each of the main characters through her character development and imagery. I particularly enjoyed all of the action threaded throughout the novel. I was constantly kept on my toes and was taken on a total emotional roller-coaster. Dandelions Never Die is one of the most inspirational books I have ever read. I am so thankful I had the opportunity to add it to my collection."

"Who would have thought that a romance novel could hold the attention of a GUY... but that's what happened, despite my plans to the contrary, I spent the whole weekend reading this page turner. A perfect balance of romance and action."
~Bill Romance~
 
 
 
"I met McCartney Green through an internet forum and subsequently asked to read Dandelions Never Die. Wow! It's an absolute page turner. I finished in only a few days. I simply could not put it down. I fell in love with Shelley...what a gal! But how much can one woman take? The way McCartney wrote her to be vulnerable and yet so strong is intriguing. McCartney had me holding my breath right up to the very end. I can't wait for the movie!"

"Oh my gosh!!! I can't tell you when I have loved a book more and I read all the big guys. I want to read Six Angels now! A fan for sure."

~Glenna~

 

"All I can say about McCartney's Dandelions Series is ...Wow! All of the books are great. If I had to choose a favorite I guess it would be Six Angels. Being a divorced parent, I loved the way she portrayed Special Agent Keegan Tanner. To understand what I mean, you have to read the series.

The worse thing about The Dandelions Series is I'm going to have hold McCartney Green liable to hire a housekeeper for me because once I start one of her books, I can't get anything done until the book is finished.

Danielle Steele -  good. Sandra Brown - good. McCartney Green - GREAT!"

~Nan James~ Magic Touch Hair Salon-Riverdale, Georgia~

 

"McCartney, Thanks so much for sending me Dandelions Never Die. I absolutely loved it! As a fellow writer and "professional romance novel reader" I can honestly say you are truly gifted with writing talent. I know because I truly am a PROFESSIONAL women's fiction reader! I've added you to the list of my favorite writers and I'm looking forward to reading another one of your books soon"

~Lori~

 

"Amazing! (To Protect the Innocent) I couldn't put it down. It's impressive the way McCartney pulled me in. The moment I started reading she took me into another world, one that isn't perfect. Yet we learn that love and family can overcome even the worst obstacles. I love the characters and McCartney takes you to the edge of reason as they try to decide whether to cross those fine lines of morality. I absolutely enjoyed every minute of this story!"

~Sandra Lindsey~

 

"From someone who reviewed books for a leading magazine in DC area, it's wonderful to see a writer with such passion and intrigue. McCartney has the ability to create a mystery with words. Dandelions Never Die is great entertainment and better than any movie I've seen. The characters have been so elegantly created. I wish McCartney Green the best of luck and I can't wait to read the rest of her works."

 ~Ginger Rogers~Atlanta

 

"I finished the book! McCartney, your book is so much better than so many books I've read. I have to tell you in all honesty, you're truly a wonderful writer. I'm not telling you that just to be kind. I really love the way you bring to your reader a whirlwind of emotions. I could begin a chapter feeling excited to see what's coming next, by the middle be very sad and by the end be angry as hell! There were a few times I had to say to myself myself, "snap out of it-- it's not real! I love the way you have the ability to make the reader feel what the characters are feeling. Every time Shelley took a beating-- I felt it! Or when she won I felt her victory and I was proud of her too! They became people I cared about. And I'm hopelessly in love with Eric! Yummy!!! If only HE was REAL"

~Peaches~New Hampshire~

 
"Your writing is dynamite! I applaud your skill at writing romance and your aim of reducing or eliminating violence and abuse toward women. I think you are a strong and wonderful voice for those who are suffering."

"I absolutely LOVE the first book of the series. (Stuntwoman) Elizabeth Davidovich recommended it to me a year ago, and my husband finally got it for me. I couldn't put it down!! What an amazing story with wonderful characters. The book was empowering and I recommend it to everyone!! I can't wait to read more of the series! Thank you for a wonderful read McCartney Green :)"

“Just finished Six Angels...oh, my DOD!! (As my 2 year old says) From the moment you start to the end it's non-stop action, hot sex, love etc. I am in love with Keegan and Lizzy and her girls are FABULOUS! I didn't put it down from the moment I began to read it. I'm waiting to get Expendable from McCartney Green and my hands feel lonely without a book in it from her. Don't even care to read another author AT ALL. Can't wait until an agent with any sense publishes her so we can just go to the store and pick them up whenever we NEED to. NEED...got that? I need a Keegan Lizzy fix..a Eric Shelly fix, a Bree and Ricky fix, a Chaz and Lisa fix--it feels like the movie is over too soon and I'm in love with these people as if I really know them. No I'm not a crazy lady--JUST A REGULAR WOMAN mommy of two, married 10 years love my job teaching personal fitness and LOVE REAL ROMANCE NOVELS--- keep on keeping on MG you have true fans that are holding our breath until each novel is complete and we can read them.” ~Eryn Porter~(another daughter)

“You worried me and you made me cry and I absolutely loved Six Angels! of course, you knew I would. I thought I was gonna die there at the end. The epilogue was wonderful! I love how you brought everyone together. People who haven't read any of the other books get a little taste of what the characters are like. You really are genius at this. You create a whole world that is so real to me. Thank you again for sharing them all with me.” ~Amy Hines~

"I am absolutely hooked! (I've read Dandelions Never Die, Four Days and Six Angels.) Haven't even thought about buying from another author since I started your books. Where can I get a copy of Weeds Grow and A Place Called Home?"

"Just finished reading A Place Called Home! You are frickin awesome! I will have you know I haven't read a book since my early twenties, much less 2 in one week! lol! I loved this story as much as the first! Bring on Weeds Grow!

"I finished your book yesterday, and absolutely loved it. What a roller coaster ride it was!! I couldn't put it down. I can't see why it hasn't been published with "the big guys." I wish you every success with your novels and I am full of awe and admiration at your skill and dedication."
