Critical Praise

"Laura Pedersen's lively imagination has created a cast of zany characters and an unforgettable heroine."

——Bev Marshall, author of Hot Fudge Sundae Blues, on Heart's Desire

"I loved this book! Settling in with Hallie is like hanging out with your favorite girlfriend --- the one who is smart, witty, and compassionate, and more to the point, always entertaining. Zany but never bizarre, endearing but never sentimental, warm but never boring, THE BIG SHUFFLE is a treat for readers from 18 to 80."

——Barbara Samuel, author of Madame Mirabou's School of Love
