Endorsements and Accolades

In December of 2017 at the Light Up Downtown event in Muncie, my mom (Robin Stevens) met Dana Brown and bought the first book "Lottie Loser" in her Anna Maria Island series because she thought I would like it. Little did she know she started an addiction!!! Every year I have gotten the next book in the series and DEVOURED it. This year I got book three for Christmas (and knowing full well I was, I began rereading them all.) 3 weeks, 3 AMAZING books (I could have gone quicker but sadly the holiday festivities cut into my reading time! (Just kidding!) The books traveled in the car with me on our drives to see family across the state and I loved every single word. Dana is an amazing writer and person (at this point she recognized my mom and asks how I liked each book every year!). I am beyond excited for the fourth book and I will do my best to make the drive North to meet her this year to get the book for myself!!! If anyone is looking for a new book series to dig into I HIGHLY recommend this one!!! Thank you for the addiction, Mom! And thank you Dana for the wonderful stories and world you created!!!!

Lottie Loser

A true page turner!!! From the first page the reader is transported into the mind of Charlotte, a fascinating and totally relatable character. Through emotionally charged details, Charlotte, a strong and independent woman, allows you a peak into her well-hidden vulnerabilities.

I have special praise for the author’s ability to weave the past and present in such a way that keeps you wanting more.

In this national award-winning contemporary romance, you will be hooked on Lottie. Can’t wait for the second book in this captivating series!

Lottie Loser is a fresh, compelling story about second chances, rekindled love, and finding yourself. The characters were relatable - in fact, I think women everywhere will relate to Lottie in some way. I already can’t wait to read it again!

LOTTIE LOSER is a gripping love story of a young woman’s struggle to overcome the past and build a new life for herself on a beautiful tropical island off the coast of Florida. What she doesn’t expect is for the past to catch up with her, and things sizzle and pop to the last riveting page!
