Book Reviews


“The pleasure of Fasano’s style lies in the scrumptious descriptions… and her characters’ sincere, mature desire to make things work.” ~Publishers Weekly

“Following His Heart made me go “wow”. . . I found it thought-provoking in ways I’d have never anticipated.”, 5-Stars

From a review of TAKE ME, I'M YOURS:

"Readers who enjoy Debbie Macomber’s writing will feel right at home in a Fasano novel." ~Fredlet, on Barnes & Noble Nook Books


"Could not help myself from reading excerpts to my husband and friends. This book is well written, the characters are real, everyday folks. It is very easy to identify with them. Donna Fasano is a talented author. I just love this book! My favorite quote: "Marriage is a three ring circus: engagement ring, wedding ring, and suffering." How true. Indulge yourself with this book, you will not regret it."
     ~Elizabeth M. Caldwell on Amazon


"I was so involved with the characters and the story that I laughed with them, had my stomach in knots, and most importantly held so much hope for them and a future together. I wasn't disappointed! I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a sweet and realistic love story."
     ~The Autumn Review on Amazon, owner of

Praise for WHERE'S STANLEY?:

"...complex, funny and realistic..."
     ~Wilmington News Journal

". . .a fast paced riotous look at family life today. Donna Fasano is right on target! We all have experienced the harried life style, not knowing if we are coming or going. That is what makes this story so true to life. Most of us have a friend that will come flying to our rescue despite her frailties and with a secret or two that make us cringe. Donna Fasano takes these common denominators and writes a fantastic story that entertains right up to the last word. I assure you, WHERE’S STANLEY? is a must read! 5 Stars!"
      ~Donna Zapf,

". . . Excellent !"

5 out of 5 stars! ". . . an interesting character study that provides the reader a close look at a fascinating protagonist."
      ~Harriet Klausner,

"Read in one sitting! I started this book and didn't put it down until I'd finished. It has plenty of wit and fun, and also more heart than the usual run of chick-lit. The characters are appealing and seem very real - the relationships between Fiona and her teenagers were both hilarious and believable. It's got mystery, humor, romance, and friendship....go out and buy this book!"
      ~E. Lewis, Librarian,


5 Stars . . . "An absolutely beautiful story. Donna Clayton pens her last Silhouette Romance with class and style."


"Donna Clayton's Bound by Honor is a rarity -- a marriage of convenience story that really works. Both characters have valid motivation, and their relationship develops convincingly."
      ~Catherine Witmer,


"There is a nice sensitivity to Ms. Clayton's characters that lends just the right amount of sweetness to this appealing romance."
      ~Pamela B. Cohen,


"The strength of Ms. Claytons love story can be found in her remarkably rich characters and their heartwarming interactions."
      ~Pamela Cohen,

What a wonderful book, "Reclaim My Heart"! I could not put it down until I read the last page. I had not read a "romance novel for some time. Although the story was definitely romantic - steamy in some places! - it was so much more. The characters were wonderful; not a false note. Who would not want to have an Uncle Jasper?! So many life lessons to be learned, difficulties to be overcome, happiness and understanding to come from so many years of denial and guilt. It could only have ended in one way and it was perfect. Thanks for a well-researched, entertaining and moving story. Cannot wait to read your other books.

Just finished 'Reclaim my Heart'. Great read, loved all the characters, and they were all intelligent too. I am looking forward to reading more from you Donna. Keep up the great work. I also like how your characters are so real and believable. I hate to read about stupid people and I've read a couple of books from other authors and they get the eye color or hair or even where the story is going, all mixed up. lol Your's is so put together and I just can't say enough about how much I enjoyed reading it. Now to go look for some more of your books. Thanks

I just finished "Reclaim my Heart" I truly enjoyed this book. Had a great learning experience nature to it. I always enjoy a good romance. Still, having a good ending makes it so much more rewarding. Brought tears to my eyes a few times too. I'm so sorry about your father Donna. My heart goes out to you.
