Touchstone, August 2008

"Candela writes an unconventional falling-in-love story about two people whose paths cross but never meet. . . [readers] will be charmed by its many bittersweet, humorous, and true-to-life moments.” -- Booklist

"...full of promise...satisfying..." -- Library Journal

"...the rhythmic story and human central characters keep us rooting for them, and hoping that they'll get their fairy-tale ending." -- Latina Voz Magazine

"If you love will-they-or-won't-they-meet books (and I do), then you'll find this is more than bliss." -- Chicklit Club

Kensington, October 2007

"Margo Candela is an author who loves to give readers funny, hysterical tales with characters that are filled with personality...Her words are fast, furious and funny."

--Love, Romances & More

"Refreshingly, [Life Over Easy] does depict a heroine whose road from heartbreak to recovery is mostly devoid of those annoying, predictable obstacles plaguing too many of the genre’s novels."

-- Tu Cuidad Los Angeles

Kensington, January 2007

"...perfect for its quick and quirky plot."

--Claudia Deane, The Washington Post Book World

"Margo Candela's writing style is casual and entertaining. Jacquelyn is a character you can't help but like because she seems like an everyday gal – honest, hardworking, hopeful."

--Maggie Marton, Five Minutes with Maggie

"...a superb, fun Latina-inspired novel with a mix of both The Devil Wears Prada and The Bridget Jones Diary"

--Latina Style Magazine, Rave Reviews Pick

"A quick, fun read, Underneath It All will keep the reader laughing with the hilarious images of people she's sure to know, if not of herself. Ms. Candela brings a fresh and much needed voice to the women's fiction genre."

--Patricia Woodside, Fresh Fiction

"...a great novel for every reader to sit back and enjoy as they hide from the stress of the holidays."

--Angie, Senior Reviewer, Love, Romances & More

"Jacqs is an enchanting character full of spit and vinegar trying to find that one thing in her life that really sparks. Candela takes some often dramatic situations and turns them into delightful funny moments with dialogue that is laugh out funny. Once I started reading, I could not put the book down."

--Cherokee, Coffee Time Romance
