"Lynda Simmons' writing is fresh, her settings vivid, her characterizations full of life, complexity and even a little contradiction. . . the plot could have been predictable but Simmons treats us to twists and turns, changes of heart and conflicting emotions. Great read for a long weekend in Muskoka." Sherry Isaac, quick-brown-fox-canada.blogspot.com/search/label/Book%20Reviews

Dee Dailey www.theromancestudio.com/reviews/reviews/gettingridsimmons.htm
"Hold onto your socks because this book won't let you put it down until the very last page. Every single character is perfect in their own way, each detail painting a picture that you can almost see and hear. GETTING RID OF ROSIE is so good you'll want to read it over and over." Novel Talk, LaNea Hartless noveltalk.com/reviewpage.asp
"Getting Rid of Rosie is a funny yet witty, quirky yet romantic, and heartwarming yet heartbreaking story of love and friendship, and the extremes that people will go to maintain each. Add to this a pub full of well-developed characters, and a truly unique novel is born.
As a book club pick, the story has great room for debate. The question of whether or not each group member even believes in the supernatural will be the perfect way to get the ball rolling. From there, watch the discussion go wild. I recommend this book highly for book clubs." Queenie D, Book Club Queen www.book-club-queen.com/rid-of-rosie.html
