The Talking Tree – 95 reviews – 4.5 out of 5 stars (Book 1 – The Hartwell Women)

 “Who doesn’t love a good romance story filled with intrigue, particularly if it is as well-written as Judith Keim’s “The Talking Tree?” Move past Chapter 1 and you begin to fall in love with Marissa for the young woman she is and all she represents… a young woman whose life is about to change on all fronts. If you are like me, I found it hard to put down as the story kept me entertained until the very end, still wanting more. 

The best thing about this book is that it is the first in a trilogy regarding the Hartwell cousins – three beautiful, strong women who are everything you would want all our world’s daughters to be. It is a beautiful book that I highly recommend.” 

 “Judith Keim writes intriguing stories about strong women in difficult situations, and The Talking Tree certainly fits the bill.” 

“Well written. Vivid word pictures of the characters and surroundings. Characters well intertwined. Interesting family dynamics! Grabs you right from the first page. Normally I’m not a fan of fiction, but love this book and looking forward to reading the next in the series.”

Breakfast at The Beach House Hotel – 344 reviews – 4.4 out of 5 stars

(Book 1 of the Beach House Hotel Series)

“My first Judith Keim book, was wonderful reading. I could not put it down, read in a day. Even after reading, stayed in my mind reliving some of the events. Judith describes situations so well, I felt I was right there with everyone. Such elegant get-togethers, but down home people.
Love the romance, not a detailed scene, but just good loving. The rain and wind sounded just like a Hurricane!! Thoroughly a good summer read.
Thanks, Judith”

Fat Fridays – 161 Reviews – 4.3 out of 5 Stars

(Book 1 of The Fat Fridays Series)

I saw this book on NetGalley and fell in love with the cover. I decided to start it yesterday and I could not put it down. While this isn’t my usual genre, I do like to read outside the box and this book was fantastic.
I was captivated from page one, as the story moved on, I felt such a close bond with all the ladies in the Fat Friday group. This story tells a wild tale of love, hate, abuse, friendship and so much more.
Yo will laugh and cry throughout this story and believe me when I tell you, you won’t be disappointed.

Summer in Mossy Creek 

Dixon, Chastain, Smith, Knight, Shields, Bishop, McSparren, Brock, Henry, Keim, Sebastian, Morris, Goggins

Jun 2003, $14.95 ISBN: 0967303540 

If the Lovin’ Spoonful had been in the Georgia village of Mossy Creek rather than Greenwich Village, they would know that hot time, summer in the mountains means plenty of fun, ole southern style. The townsfolk look for a quiet uneventful season, but also know their enemy in slimy Bigelow still remains on the prowl. Meanwhile the librarian pushes the Police Chief into bluffing an abusive parent while the Mayor leads by example applying common sense to seemingly difficult problems. Much of the townsfolk meet eating dessert at the diner, but along with fans will find hot fun in the summertime here.
The third Mossy Creek tale is a series of vignettes written by a virtual who’s who of the irons maidens of the south (more talented than steel magnolias). The contributions differ in size while providing a slice of life in a small remote Georgia mountain town. Each story builds up on the previous contribution so that the audience receives an anthology that uses the best elements of a novel and that of a short story into a tremendous collection. SUMMER IN MOSSY CREEK holds its own with its superb predecessors. Fans of the series already know that the first two books flow smoothly; the third tale shares in common with the previous duo a southern comfort smoothness.
