Praise for From Stranger To Lover

“Lisa is such a delightfully and brutally honest writer, and from Stranger to Lover is no exception! For someone who is just starting to learn and be overwhelmed by the ins and outs of long-distance…this read was so helpful. I appreciate her honesty about the pros and cons of long-distance relationships, the good and bad habits that tend to develop in them, the red flags to watch out for, the personal stories she includes as illustrations throughout.” (Michelle McNeil)

“My husband and I started dating long distance (after being in-person friends and far away friends for many years) and Lisa’s resources have always been phenomenal when it comes to LDR’s. I was ecstatic to read this latest book and I am recommending it to friends who are currently in LDR’s or may be considering it. This book is full of fabulous strategies/tips that REALLY work … and I love the questions that Lisa asks with each strategy – they really help the reader think through their own personal LDR. Love this book!” (Amanda Cottrell)

    “Terrific relationship advice — which can sometimes feel like a bucket of cold water to the face of the lovestruck, but is balanced by the author’s own happy ending. Very thoughtful, very hopeful.” (Amazon reviewer)

    “An absolute winner! I fell in love with Lisa’s writing after reading the first page of her long-distance relationship memoir Love at the Speed of Email (which you MUST must read, if you have not already!) and continue to be so encouraged by her writing. Lisa is such a delightfully and brutally honest writer, and from Stranger to Lover is no exception! For someone who is just starting to learn and be overwhelmed by the ins and outs of long-distance…this read was so helpful. I appreciate her honesty about the pros and cons of long-distance relationships, the good and bad habits that tend to develop in them, the red flags to watch out for, the personal stories she includes as illustrations throughout. I highly recommend this for anyone contemplating, beginning, or in the midst of a long distance relationship. Happy reading!” (Amazon reviewer)

    “The book From Stranger to Lover by Lisa McKay was a great and quick read. I loved it, it was fast and funny. She gets to the heart of the matter and gives you plenty of food for thought.

    Though I’ve never been in a traditional long distance relationship, I can easily see some of the patterns that she mentions in my own adventures from dating online in my early 20’s. The pursuit-retreat issue is something I’ve had to address myself and reading about it was an eye opening experience. The over communicating and doing it too often was another great point that she makes you evaluate.

    Whether you are getting ready for a long distance relationship, have been in one or are doing the whole internet dating thing, this book has some fabulous tips and advice for you.” (Amazon reviewer)

    “This an easy to read and practical guide for long distance relationships . . . but much of it is good advice for ANY romantic relationship. I like the straight forward and often humorous voice of the author and I appreciated her own personal stories sprinkled throughout the book. Definitely a worthwhile read!” (Amazon reviewer)
