  • 5***** This is the kind of book that makes you glad to have stepped out of your comfort zone for a moment. While saying that there is something for everyone in this book, I don’t mean it at all flippantly – the elements of fantasy, love, magic, sex, humour and raw emotion are all expertly intertwined by a very talented writer who really seize her opportunity to make this genre her own. I look forward to more. ~ J.S
  • 5***** A world within a world that you never knew existed and one you’ll NEVER forget. ‘A Carpet of Purple Flowers’ ticks all the boxes: fantasy, romance, action, and suspense. The story quickly revs up and propels the reader into layers of the otherworldly sprinkled with folklore and magic. The turn of each page delivers unexpected plot twists. You will lose track of time and yourself in Bea’s story which can not end here. Make room on your bookcase, ‘A Carpet of Purple Flowers’ is destined to blossom into a wondrous book series. ~ S.C
  • 5***** A Carpet of Purple Flowers is beautiful in so many ways, the story itself, the wonderful descriptions that really come alive in your imagination, the believable characters and the otherworldly beings the Sindria are a stunning creation.  Can’t wait for book 2! ~ S.O
  • 5***** Oh my goodness! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Ms.McCartney is a fantastic story teller. She takes the reader on a journey that has many twists that are not anticipated. I would recommend this book to readers that enjoy romance with a little magic involved. ~ Ali
  • 5***** Epic fantasy, coming-of-age, romantic drama and mythology: this book is a finely woven carpet of great fiction.From the blurb, I expected a kind of ‘Twilight for adults’. What I got was intricately-imagined fantasy, suspenseful action, two beautifully interwoven love stories (not the kind of paranormal love triangle I was anticipating), and a lot of well-crafted drama. Brilliant – I want more! ~ C
  • 5***** As a romance editor / addict / obsessive, I often feel that even the best new novels are re-hashes of books I’ve read before. Which is why I was so pleased to discover this little gem – a truly unique premise that merges the spiritual with the paranormal in a very interesting way. The characters are gorgeous, and the love triangle is full of twists and surprises. I highly recommend. ~ C.H
  • 5***** More than anything, writer Tracey-Anne McCartney knows how to do characters. They just leap to life from the page – they are the kind you find yourself wishing they were real. The story itself twists and turns so many times it leaves you a little breathless. But of course, my favorite part, above all was the writing itself. The beautiful descriptions of the scenery just put you right in the story. It really comes to life, more so than any book I’ve read in a long time. Ever since I read it, I’ve been on the edge of my seat waiting for the sequel. I knew from the start that this would be a book that would go places…first publication, but now I wouldn’t be afraid to bet on a film adaption sometime in the future! ~ D.S
  • 5*****First of all, this is such a refreshing read; it’s different than everything I have read in a while! Especially the first part of the book is fast-paced, you get to know the characters but most important: You are introduced to a whole new world! You get to know this world bit by bit, the book did not throw all the information about this world at you all at once, which kept me curious. The characters are well-developed, and I loved every one of them! This book includes a heart-wreaking romance, a refreshing world and an original plot which I really liked! ~ F
  • 5*****Arghhhhh this book is so awesome, I am speechless after finishing this amazing story. It’s unbelievable how perfectly this book is written. It has twists and unexpected turns, things that you could never have imagined at all. I’m blown way because of the nature of the story. Never have I ever read something like A Carpet of Purple Flowers. So go get this book please, I’m begging you, go read this story. ~ N.A
  • 5***** I’m following Tracyanne MCCartney on Twitter and got curious! Bought is as an E-book and read it within a couple of days!
    It’s an amazing book, never boring for even a minute! Covers it all, romance, action, adventure. Love the characters! Looking forward to the next book!~ K.O
  • 5***** Read this one BEFORE it becomes a motion picture. This author has a wonderful way of making you forget that you are reading. I’m so happy. ~ G
  • 5***** A good book. The story just came alive within the pages. ~ M.O
