What readers say about...
"Sanibel's Secret Bank" was really something....suspense, drama, romance, and an ending that just blew me away! Very interesting and most enjoyable. Well written, Chuck.
-C. Lewis, Newark, DE
"Entertaining read. I really liked its "voice," unique. It reads like a 20 year-old wrote it!"
-E. Ichton, Worcester, MA
"Great read with so much suspense, the ending was wild. I too am a Skidmore graduate, many years before Gwen, and commend you on all the accurate facts about the college and Saratoga Springs. I also enjoyed the epilogue to know how everyone is doing now."
-L. Harvey, Sanibel, FL
"A Bank that takes evil to new heights (and depths). Interesting characters, gators, sunsets, mosquitoes. All these elements come together in Highfield's suspenseful Sanibel's Secret Bank. A reading experience that captures the good life that Florida's Gulf Coast offers along with the dangers that can lurk in the mangroves."
-C. Casey, Baltimore, MD
"Great read. Highly recommend to all."
-B. Eubank, Lewes, DE
"Highfield's descriptions of Sanibel are detailed, which brings the taste of home cooking to the book. It's a nice blend of the reality of Sanibel's settings, hitting the fiction world of Highfield's storytelling."

"You have a fertile imagination, and you did a great job presenting the life of street people in understandable terms. I will definitely recommend your book to others."

-The Island Sand Paper, Fort Myers Beach, FL
IN SUN DOWN FAR

-E. Ichton, Worcester, MA
"...great leading character. I definitely relate to him. Great writing..."

-C. Casey, Baltimore, MD
"My wife and I have read IN SUN DOWN FAR and thought it was an extremely enjoyable and intriguing read. I definitely identified with Ellis' take on enjoying what you are doing in life. Money and success are important but they truly don't bring happiness. Will be reading Streets shortly."
