    Well done! I loved your novel and hope it’s the first of many. Having moved to Iowa and learning more about human trafficking, I found this book fascinating and I was riveted to the end. Your passion for writing and compassion for people is evident, and I can’t wait to read your next book! I used Audible, and Brittany’s narration was excellent.

      Thank you, Colleen! I’m glad I kept your attention, and I hope you’ll continue to learn more about human trafficking! Brittany did a fabulous job reading the book. I’m very happy with how it turned out 🙂

    Ms. Olsen, I just finished “The Girl Before” and absolutely could not put it down. i finished it at 7:30 this morning – up all night. You have an amazing talent for telling a story without drowning it in flowery description gunk. I am from Minnesota and so I was thrilled to read something by a neighbor! Ha. what is next and when will it be out? Gotta read more of your work.

      Thank you, Kathleen! I was actually born in Minnesota, so it’s like home to me too. No release date on the next book yet, but more is coming!

  3. Rena!we have someone in common…Mari Schneider Weindorf is one of me best best friends from high school. I am sitting with her right now. So what you say? Well….I own a bookstore! In hudson wisconsin. It is basically a suburb of the Twin Cities. I would love to have you come for a book signing sometime either at our store or partner with an area library. I would love to help you with contacts if you want any for area stores I’m sure the publicity Dept is doing a good job for you but still…if you need anything twin cities…..p.s. Mari is your mom’s cousin. Hope to hear from you sometime. Sue Roegge Chapter2books

    Just listened to you book debut novel and I must say how disappointed I was- that you didn’t have any more books out. I listened to it on audiobook and besides the awesome narration, the writing was WONDERFUL! I actually listened to it during dinner last night, I couldn’t put it down. Took my husband a good 15 minutes before he realized what I was doing…..gotta love Bluetooth headphones!! I can’t wait for your next book, most definitely a fan.

    Hello Rena
    I live in Auckland New Zealand. I am about to write a review on your book for my library:
    “This book is superbly written. It is full of emotion that draws you in and holds you unrelentingly page after page. The depth of characterization is brilliant. I will not forget this book.”
    For as long as I can remember I have loved to read – I can not imagine a world without books – thank you for “The Girl Before”.

    What a fantastic book! I read it in one day! I couldn’t put down! Hope you write another book very soon. I will recommend this book to my friends and relatives.
