"I finished Leaning and have to say, every free moment was filled in with reading it. After completion I felt sadness, like i lost a friend... never had that feeling when I finished a book, I didn't want it to end. Can't wait for a follow-up." ~Dave Donsbach
I loved the book - could not put it down I laughed and cried and cried some more. I can't wait for the next book. ~Bonnie Slaughter

"Great Book, can't wait for the next one! I really enjoyed reading this book. I loved the characters and felt that I knew exactly where everything was taking place. I have lived in many of the areas that are in this book so it was even more fun to read! Loved it, loved it and can't wait(well I'm trying to wait patiently) for the sequel." ~Jenny _
"Another Great Montana Writer! This story, set in beautiful Missoula, Montana, features characters I cared about, believed in, and rooted for. I couldn't put it down! A lot happens in this quick read, including laugh out loud moments, witty banter, love and loss that had me crying real tears. Griz country is the backdrop for these college kids making their respective ways in music and basketball. I've always loved Montana stories and this one is a keeper."~Jennifer Shryock
"Loved It! Loved the characters! I couldn't seem to put the book down. Stayed up late to read...got up early to read...found myself hoping the stop light would turn red on my way to work so I could read!!! It was a fantastic story and I didn't want it to end. Looking forward to the sequel."~Judi

"A wonderful story of love, life, and friendship. Only 2 chapters into this book, and I found it hard to put down! Easy reading and a wonderful mix of romance, suspense, humor, and emotion, this story and it's characters was one a reader could easily relate to! I find myself looking forward to the next book by J.W. Swartz.
All in all, well worth the purchase price! You won't be disappointed!!!"~Peggy
"Great read! I loved this book! The writer pulls you into the lives of the characters and leaves you vested in their stories. This was an easy read that I had a hard time putting down. You'll finish the book hoping these characters can be found in future books by the author so you can follow what happens next in their lives."~Kel
"Loved it! I absolutely loved this book! The landmarks JW Swartz uses bring back so many memories from my college days growing up in this western Montana town.
The book was an absolute page turner. From the quircky characters, to the romance, to the mystery, I enjoyed every minute and had a hard time putting it down.
I highly recommend this book for a good read....either on a warm summer day under a tree, or snuggled up next to a fireplace in the winter!
You will love it!
Can't wait for the sequel!"~Jen

I would recommend this book to anyone. I can't wait to read it again and am looking forward to the next one!!"~Genevieve
"Addictive! I absolutely loved this book-have actually read it twice now! It was so easy to read and so very hard to put down! You get to know the characters so well as Jennifer tells their story that you can't wait to see where their lives lead. I am anxiously awaiting the next one..." Shana
"Had me "Leaning" from start to finish! This was such an easy read - I couldn't put it down. Being from Montana it was as if I became a part of the story because I could relate to so many locations and events. I can't wait for her next book." Sparkle
"Three I's, Imaginative, Interesting, and Intriguing! J.W.Swartz is an imaginative, interesting writer who introduces the characters to the reader as friends and family. One wants to find out everything about them and the story is intriging. I look forward to the sequel!
"Finished the book!! Great story Jen!! Keep writing!"~facebook friend
"I am so proud of you! This is not the kind if book I will normally read.....there are parts that make me extremely uncomfortable....and uncomfortably reflective. It's the subject, not the content.
I COULD NOT PUT THIS BOOK DOWN!! The cover is perfect by the way. I'm always going to remember to find a tree next time I need to be held up. and the ideology of men in their boxes has more wisdom than any one woman should have."~Denise
"I got done reading the book last night and I really loved it. Now its Kevin's turn so I'll tell you what he thinks afterwards. I had to hide it from him a few times so he would actually let me read it."~Heather
"Just finished the book, only took 2 days. LOVED IT!! When does the next one come out?!"~Christy/facebook friend
LOVED your book - thank you for making it available for Kindle!!! I can't wait for the next one! ~Karen Goehring
