"On the Edge of the Woods marks the memorable fiction debut
of an author in striking command of all the gripping essentials. Tyrrel
offers up likable, compelling characters; vivid settings; a host of
stormy and steamy relationships; and a chilling mysterious thread
that keeps the reader turning pages until the shocking twist ending."

"Readers will enjoy this absolutely enthralling
modern day gothic romantic suspense that reads some what like a
modern day Suspicion. Though Brand's behavior is intended to make
him seem suspicious, fans will dislike his attitude towards Stacy.
On the other hand, readers will fully appreciate Stacy, who displays
courage though under siege. The support cast provides depth to the
small somewhat isolated Sierra community that hopefully will lead
to future stories starring several of them."

"In the gothic tradition of Victoria Holt and
Barbara Michaels comes a stunning new voice in fiction. With mesmerizing
style and moody atmosphere, Diane Tyrrel pins a dazzling tale of
a thoroughly modern woman who falls in love with the house of her
dreams, which turns into her ultimate nightmare."
"A world class gothic novel."
