Review of The Language of Roses

"A beguiling and intriguing retelling of Beauty and the Beast: as dreamlike as Renoir's cinema, but far more intense."

Stacey Harris, Goodreads
Review of The Language of Roses

"You don't have to forgive, even if they changed, even if they didn't mean it and even if they're sorry. Your feelings matter. Your pain matters. And the book does an amazing job in embodying that."

Martina Weiss, Goodreads
Review of The Language of Roses

"The Language of Roses was absolutely beautiful and heart-wrenching and oh so believable beneath the veneer of magic."

Review of The Language of Roses

"...a surprising and well written retelling of one of the classic tales."

Review of The Language of Roses

"...amongst the most original retellings of this tale I've read ... There's no personal redemption to be had here, but there's still the love that transforms."

Review of The Language of Roses

"To be asked to marry and to be in love with someone-- one of those things is easier than the other, on any level. ... A beautiful spin of Beauty and the Beast."

Steph, Goodreads
Review of The Language of Roses

"[A] genuinely fresh and radical take on the Beauty and the Beast tale...it is evident just how modern its approach is, both in the centrality of queerness (aromanticism and sapphic love truly are at the heart of this) and in its approach to the complexity of humanity."
