"The novel succeeds because it is able to display Sarah's constant yearning for love. Since we spend so much time in her head, we cheer her on at every chance she gets to find it. When she finally experiences her epiphany and finds a partner with whom she is compatible, we feel lik ewe are there with Sarah, enjoying her beautiful rewards. "Please Hold" is Tricia Stewart Shiu's most gratifying and relatable novel to date. It's a highly entertaining and imaginative journey over the rainbow in Southern California in search of that proverbial pot of gold which Sarah Marks so mightily yearns for and deserves." --Amazon Reviewer
