Barbara Vey’s Publishers Weekly



I had the most lovely surprise last Thursday when a friend mentioned that my romantice suspense published bt Cerridwen Press was on Barbara Veil's blog with a great review.
FRENCH PERIL on Barbara Vey’s Publishers Weekly
http://www.publishersweekly.com/blog/880000288.html

Cheryl has traveled to France to assist in the restoration of a medieval chapel, but one man has been murdered, another beaten, all for the sake of a small but priceless statue, hidden somewhere in the ruins. An international team has been assembled by Francois to help in the renovations, but obviously, one of them is willing to kill to be the one to retrieve the statue.

Cheryl doesn't know who to trust, especially the dangerously handsome Francois, who definitely has more than just a statue on his mind. Who wouldn't want to lose themselves in Mona Risk's French Peril?

Traveling to the beautiful French countryside, staying in a marvelous, ornate chateau, eating fine food and drinking the chateau's wine, and let's not forget the charming and handsome host. Sign me up, Ms Risk, I'll be looking for your next foreign escape.Barbara Vey’s Publishers Weekly

My first book TO LOVE A HERO also received a great review at The Romance Studio and was voted 5 Hearts Sweetheart of the Week.


Mona Risk has built an exceptional story of romance with a hopeful tale of what can be accomplished when people on both sides of the ocean work together to make the world a better place. Both Sergei and Cecile are well deserving of the roles as hero and heroine of the story. As a war hero Sergei has earned the respect of his country that allows him to work as hard for peace and the future of his country as he did during war. Cecile doesn’t let fear stand in her way as she finds a route around the problems to get what she wants if people stand in her way. She’s admirable in her inventive solutions when confronted by a male dominated society.

This is a fast moving story full of colorful characters who enhance our enjoyment of the country and its people. Ms. Risk is one of those authors who puts together a tale that’s captivates from first page to last. I’ll have to look for more of her work in the future.
