A few recent reviews of Camelot & Vine:

The Magnolia Blossom Review: 5 magnolias!  “I was totally sucked in…”

Ingrid Hall   “I simply couldn’t put it down.”

Hometown Pasadena   “…an adventure with sprinklings of suspense and action, a splash of comedy, a dose of history, and the always-irresistible touch of romance.”

Library of Clean Reads  “…a brilliant fresh take on the legend of Camelot. The ending is perfect…I was constantly surprised by this book.”

Long and Short Reviews: “Along with the rich level of history, I appreciate that this story has a warts-and-all approach to the past…[Casey's] a different person at the end than she was in the beginning, and I don’t ask more from a story than that.”

What people are saying about Camelot & Vine…

“Camelot & Vine is a clever intersection of a delightful contemporary heroine and well-researched historical fiction. Petrea Burchard has used the beloved Arthurian legend as the background for a great time-traveling tale that becomes a personal journey for her main character and for us as readers…It’s filled with humor, myth, warmth, wisdom and a loyal steed! What more could you ask for in a book?” — Lian Dolan, LA Times best-selling author of Helen of Pasadena, blogger and Chaos Chronicles podcaster

“It is the rare book that makes me banish the family and hole up in my room turning page after page, but Camelot & Vine is just that book…The fact that it also includes…a sexy King Arthur for grown ups makes it the perfect indulgence for those days when you just need to live in another millennium.” — Margaret Finnegan, author of The Goddess Lounge:

“This captivating tale takes readers on a journey from a Hollywood set to King Arthur’s castle, and it has it all: adventure, humor, love, and peril. A fresh take on the legend of Camelot.” –  Colleen Dunn Bates, Founder/Publisher of Prospect Park Books:

“Fanciful, fun, and touching.” — Dianne Emley, LA Times bestselling author of the Detective Nan Vining series
