Reviews of The Mexico Diaries

4.6 rating average on Amazon/Kindle/Goodreads


“As lively and engaging an account of resettling in Mexico as you’ll encounter, replete with goat wrangling, narcos, scorpions, and a rollicking cast of characters. As Dan and Holly, fleeing their stress-filled US lives, struggle to set up an eco-friendly community along Mexico’s west coast, fiascos and triumphs mark their journey.”~ Tony Cohan, Literary Guild Winner and author of NYT’s best-selling memoir, On Mexican Time.
