Book Reviews

"Interlaced Souls had me guessing from the beginning to the end. It's a love story that will make you swoon while keeping you on the edge of your seat with suspense. The storyline is original and captivating; like nothing I've read before. Highly recommend."

                                       - Amanda Waggener, Blogger at 'No Grit No Pearl'

"Interlaced Souls is a story of true love; a sweet story of connection. If you're looking for gentle, quick and heart-warming escapism, this book is for you. Even though this is Book 4 of Kimberly McKay's Spiritual Gifts Series, you can read this as a stand-alone. I did that, but be warned if you do too - you'll feel compelled to read Endless Possibilities, Blind Instincts, and Facing Redemption as well. In fact; save yourself the time and buy all four!"


                                                 - Tamsin Schwab, Entertainment Professional

"When Danny returns to his childhood home, he braces for a confrontation with the past. He’d never dream he’d lose his past altogether. But when a sudden head injury gives him amnesia, he struggles to remember his history and Sam, the beautiful woman who claims to just be an old friend, despite his heart telling him she was so much more.

Blind Instincts is a sweet and compelling book with relatable main and secondary characters. McKay threads drama, romance, suspense, and faith elements together to make an entertaining and uplifting story with a heartwarming conclusion."

                                                 - Chloe S. Flanagan, author

"Interlaced Souls is about characters who are broken in different ways. As you read, you get to watch them heal themselves and each other. Don't let the heartwarming premise fool you. From the start I was worried about Bonnie's safety. It was like watching a train wreck in slow motion. The locomotive chugging along without realizing the danger around the bend. Also, I can't sign off without mentioning the swoon worthy military men. Can we have several spin-offs, please??"        


                                        -- Kate Condie, author

"Dangerous Visions is a wild ride, keeping you wondering which villains the main characters would face next and if they would survive. In the midst of the chaos, two people are thrown together, and you wonder at times if they will kill each other before the bad guys get to them. Suspense, intrigue, action, and romance - this book has it all."
                                         -- Donna E. Lane, author

"Endless Possibilities is a classic in the making! I read this, and within the first few pages, I was hooked! I felt like I was watching a movie as I read the fluid style of the author. Kimberly McKay has a gift with words. I was transported into the story with an in-depth description of the location. I read a passage to my husband (we are West Texas people, now in Cali, but we are familiar with Texas/Oklahoma landscapes). His response was, "she's spot on." This is a beautiful story of hope, love, unexpected surprises, and knowing that love transcends time. The bond between certain family members never fades. This is a page-turner with a dash of comfort, and I would say my favorite from author Kimberly McKay."                       


-- KB Garner, writer

"Readers might be tempted to settle into “Coming Home” as a typical romance novel, but McKay throws in enough curves to keep the reader furiously turning pages to reach the finale.


Mckay does a good job of making her characters real and relatable. They know loss. They have to rely on their faith. They want to love, but they’re full of all of the emotions anyone is subject to when opening up to this most vulnerable of feelings — fear, insecurity, uncertainty, and hope.


“Coming Home” is a fast read with main characters that pique the reader’s interest and draw compassion. Side characters add just the right amount of trouble.


McKay uses a deft hand in weaving elements of faith into the story. The characters face a realistic struggle between romantic interest and purity, but there’s no unabashed evangelism. Anne’s talk with her new friend Kamryn gives readers a great analogy of the difference between a true relationship with God and empty religion."

"There are times when a story just comes together. When there is that combination of characters, story, and feel that creates that entertaining read. Coming Home is one of those times. It is an engaging read with a storyline that not only will keep you entertained, but the ending has so many twists and turns, it will keep you guessing until the final page. Still, as good as the story is, to me, to be the true test of a book is the characters and how believable they are. Coming Home does not disappoint. I still find myself wanting to go back and read more."

"Facing Redemption is both an inspiring and spiritually uplifting story that makes it both a page-turner as well as one that makes you long to be back in the story when you are done.

If you are looking for a story that not only motivates but will make you feel like there is hope in the world for anyone who works hard at finding the truth, then I highly recommend Facing Redemption."​

"In her accomplished and heartfelt sequel to Finding Kylie, Kimberly answers the difficult questions of whether or not a person can sincerely change when they know they have done something terrible; whether those who have been wronged can forgive on behalf of those who cannot; whether sins committed in the ignorance and arrogance of youth be atoned in adulthood.

Through a thought-provoking, yet engaging and accessible narrative, Kimberly McKay's well-realized and grounded characters take the reader on an incredible journey of hopelessness and faith, deception and truth, transgression and redemption - but most of all ... family and love."


John Schwab, actor and film producer

"Finding Kylie is an excellent first novel from freshman novelist, Kim McKay.

It is a great story told in an extremely innovative way; combining flashback, past narrative via a journal, and first-person narrative internal thought. These all combine to keep the story building in pace and intensity throughout the book. And the emotional turmoil of both the protagonist and her deceased mother (told through a diary) is deftly handled.

What I enjoyed most about this novel was how easy of a read it was, the characters were well thought through and the fact that the story is told through the aforementioned variety of techniques.

The end of the novel is left sufficiently open enough to expect a follow-up. I hope there is one, as I personally look forward to this burgeoning talent bloom into a wonderfully accomplished novelist with a fantastically unique voice."



John Schwab, actor and film producer

"I encourage anyone looking for a great book to read this fall season, as the temps drop and you're wrapped up in a blanket ... to go out and pick up Facing Redemption on

This story is one that many of us can relate to or know someone who has been wronged by a parent and struggle to find peace with the pain that has been caused over many years.

Finding the courage to forgive and/or to be the one seeking forgiveness is never easy.

This book is that story ... I was honored to be on the cover and I know it will be a tremendous success. Thank you Kimberly McKay for asking me to be a part of something so special.​"
