“You never lose faith in human nature when reading a Melissa Brown book. I believe a book often reflects that author’s general view on life and now after having read two of her novels, I want to keep ‘swimming’ in her unique brand of positivity. In true Melissa Brown style, we are given two characters to love, invest ourselves in, and cheer for. We are shown true heartbreak but we also stay confident that she would look after our hearts in the end. There is great joy and comfort in that. A book for the heart and from the heart, a beautifully narrated story that will feed every single romantic bone in your body.”—Natasha is a Book Junkie
“With a mix of well written characters and a believable story line Champagne Toast holds your attention from beginning to end. Melissa Brown did not disappoint with this follow up and this book would be a great add to your bookshelf. For me this was a 5 star!”-Pam, The Book Avenue
“I’m still in awe that Champagne Toast is only Melissa Brown’s second novel. I was completely impressed with her writing and story telling in Bouquet Toss and in Champagne Toast Melissa proves once again what a great romantic writer she is. Her stories aren’t overly complicated and her words flow effortlessly as you get lost in her stories. As you read about Kate and Evan’s romance you get a real sense that you’re getting to know these characters in a personal level and you are right there with them as they fall in love, laugh, cry, and go through heartache. Melissa Brown reminds you that love is not easy. There will most definitely be ups and downs, good times and bad. But it’s the love that goes through the toughest trials and tribulations that are worth saving and fighting for.”–Debbie, Talk Supe
