One-Minute Book Reviews


Janice Harayda does not accept books, catalogs, press releases, advance reader’s editions, or other promotional materials from editors, publishers, literary agents, or authors of new or forthcoming books. She regrets that she can’t respond to pitches or queries about whether she can review books, whether sent by e-mail, Twitter, or other means. Unsolicited books returned unopened to senders at their expense.

No part of the reviews on this blog may be reprinted in any form except for brief excerpts that do not violate fair-use provisions of copyright laws. Publishers who use excerpts in ads or on dust jackets should quote: Janice Harayda, One-Minute Book Reviews. In quoting from reviews, publishers may not identify Janice Harayda solely as the author of The Accidental Bride or Manhattan on the Rocks. They may identify her as the author of one of those books if One-Minute Book Reviews and its URL are also mentioned. For example: Janice Harayda, author of Manhattan on the Rocks, on One-Minute Book Reviews,

e-mail: If you’d like to receive a reply by e-mail, please mention the nature of your question or comment in the subject heading. Jan doesn’t open e-mail messages that say “no subject” or just “hi” or “hello” in the heading — these are favorite techniques of spammers.
