Praise for Kilts and Catnip

“THE SETTINGS ARE WELL-DRAWN, especially the author’s descriptions of the tree-lined streets (“Roses twined up trellises along the walls, splashing yellows, pinks, and reds. Sun shone down on the leaves of the honeysuckle-garlanded oaks dappling the bright sidewalks with shade”). This promising new fantasy series with strong characters should appeal to fans of Charlaine Harris.”

– Kirkus Review

“By building a powerful atmosphere of family ties and then introducing a romantic and mysterious figure into the mix, Zoe Tasia has created an original, gripping story that draws readers in with not just evolving romance and fantasy, but strong interpersonal ties which lie at the heart of any truly compelling read. Kilts and Catnip is highly recommended for paranormal and romance audiences who want their writing vivid, personal, and as strong in psychological connections as it is in a sense of place and an atmosphere of danger; all set against a search for connections and home.”

– D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

“Ms. Tasia creates a wonderful world of fae, shape-shifters, goblins, and magic, effortlessly blending it with the story of a very modern family, dealing with the aftermath of loss. Becca and her two daughters are relatable and likeable and the vibrant world of Shrouded Isle may cause some readers to book flights to Scotland.”
