    Hello Mrs. Heugten! I just picked up and read Saving Max and was engaged the whole time the book was open. I love your writing style and this plot line was especially interesting. You kept me guessing and threw me for loop with an ending I couldn’t even fathom of happening. I would like to wish you good luck in future writing endeavours. I hope you will continue putting out new material and a possible sequel given the epilogue *wink*.

    A new devote fan,

    This was one of the greatest books i have ever read. i was on the edge of my seat the entire time wondering what will happen next. i heard that you were considering writing a sequel and maybe even a series…that would be amazing because this book showed the struggles of one mother versus the greed of another which is a very interesting topic. this book had the right amount of thrill and tenderness that appeals to many readers. this book made me feel as though i was transported to the life of danielle and max. max was a great character that had a unique personality given his sharp wit, intelligence, attitude, and delicateness. wow i feel as though im rambling but your book was so amazing that i dont know exactly how to express it in word. thank you for writing this book and i would love to be able to read more of your works.
