I literally could not put the book down, and page after page, it had me chuckling out loud and wondering what would happen next. I can hardly wait to read the next novel, I am so excited about it. I keep checking to see if it is published yet.

You are a skilled author and it shows! Congratulations to you on such a wonderful success.”

“I really did love it. I was attracted by the book cover to begin with and it went from there.

I was at first skeptical of my wife’s suggestion to read Aubrey as it was on the book list of her all female book club. Happily, I was mistaken. Wariness was overtaken by a voracious appetite to quickly digest as many pages as I could. I was delighted that a hint of science fiction was woven within this romantic adventure. To peek inside the mind of this young lady was wonderfully illuminating and I can’t wait for the next book.”

“Kathryn Roka has scored a big win with her entrancing new book, “Aubrey”. It is an emotional rollercoaster of a thrill ride that will keep the reader spellbound from beginning to end. With an amazing ability to bring her characters to life in a completely believable manner, Ms. Roka weaves a tale that is part romance, part suspense-filler thriller and 100% engrossing entertainment. A really great read that was hard to put down. Welcome to your new life, Kathryn!”

“Kathryn’s novel ‘Aubrey’ is the perfect escape from reality linking the past with the present with a generous dose of wit and humor. While reading it, I experienced a FAB ‘endomorphin rush’. I loved her amusing and tragic characters and her comical ‘innuendos’ to real life warmhearted relationships with her physician partners as a NP.”

“So, I asked for a romantic novel and this one found its way to me on Christmas morning. A signed copy nonetheless. I really want to retell the story, but I don’t want to spoil it…There were a few cute surprises and other interesting tid bits here and there. I really really want to tell but it’s so much fun to find out while reading the book so I won’t. Overall, though, this was a very romantic novel (which will make you blush) about finding true love, passion, friendship, and taking chances in life. I loved all the characters, but the two lead men stole the show, and they kind of reminded me of Maverick and Goose from Top Gun (maybe it’s the Righteous Brothers thing).

The best books have great beginnings and endings. It’s all about coming full circle and gaining a sense of completion. I was pleasantly surprised and satisfied by this one. I haven’t read a “to be continued” in a long time, and I really look forward to book two!”

“I have never really been a book reader but Aubrey kept me turning the pages and spending every free moment wanting to know what happened next. The novel made me feel like I knew the Characters personally. It even made my mom laugh out loud. It made me smile,laugh,tear up and blush. I am patiently waiting to read what happens in the rest of the series.”

“Kathryn!! I finished in just three evenings of reading! I absolutely loved it, and was reading for hours at a time. I lost track a couple times and was exhausted at work the next day from staying up so late, but it was well worth it!

I’m so impressed with your ability to write so eloquently! There are so many different emotions, I found myself laughing out loud at times, while also getting shivers in the ‘scary’ parts. It definitely reels you in! I’m dying for the next one already, every single chapter left me wanting to read ‘just a little bit’ more.

Hope the next one is going well, because I’ll be first in line.”

“HI Kathryn…..well it was a great read ….could not put it down for long……always had to find out what was going on in Aubrey land…..so how long before we get to read book #2.???? I would have left it at one of the hostels to share with others in California but i only had the kindle version….lol……”

“I just finished your book last night and I loved it. You are very insightful into love and relationships; experience I guess. I started it the Sunday night of your book launch and had to put it away for a week so I would do other things that had to be done. It felt funny to see my name in a book, as that is a first. Thank you for giving my namesake a fun character 🙂 I am looking forward to your to your second book.”

“This new author ranks up there with the Kellerman’s, Johansen and Reichs, Kathryn Roka will be the newest addition to my ‘must read’ list. Aubrey is a compelling mix of just the right intrigue and mystery with a touch of romance to keep you turning the pages wanting more. I can’t wait for the series to be continued!!!”

“Kathryn has crafted a fine fast-paced tale that intertwines the unlikely combination of time-travel and nurse practitioner practice using a cast of well rounded and believable characters that hold ones interest from the first paragraph. The lead character, Gracie, narrates the unfolding adventure in a humorous and naughty fashion that is very engaging. In short, this book is un-put-downable, and leaves you begging the author for the next in the series.”
