Praise for My MacArthur by Cindy Fazzi
Historical Novel Society: Book Review by Viviane Crystal (Feb. 4, 2019)
The profiles of most famous men depict strong, intelligent, egocentric and determined personalities. Cindy Fazzi depicts the outcome of a personality trait too often ignored: shame. MacArthur’s desire for Isabel is surrounded by shame, which only exacerbates Isabel’s sense of unworthiness. My MacArthur is another aspect of this famous man’s career that deserves attention. Yes, it reads like a novel, but the reader gets so caught up in the story that it feels real and not fiction. Based on real facts, this is light but potent historical fiction. Read the review.
Discovering Diamonds (Jan. 22, 2019)
The writing is well-done, and for this Brit who knew nothing about MacArthur beyond his name, the novel was intriguing and interesting. Read the review.

As a fan of history and looking past the curtain of fame to see the true people these historical figures were, I found this story truly fascinating. A fictional story about a true love affair, the often explosive, raw and destructive affair between the famed General MacArthur and the young aspiring actress Isabel makes for a powerful and engaging read. Read the review.

I applaud the novel for giving Isabel a voice and taking on such a unique story and period in American history. Well done. Read the review.

Kelly’s Book Blog (April 9, 2016)
The “opposites attract” theme, complex characters and hot chemistry kept me captivated and wanting to see how things would play out…I am very glad that I read this book! It was fresh and fun! I would definitely check out more of Vina Arno’s work. I really enjoyed her writing style – clear and concise! Read more.
Romantic Reads and Such (April 3, 2015)
“I think I’d like a glimpse of how they work things out longer term (because they are so different) but I really loved the ending and the realizations that they come to. It is less a book about a fighter than it is about a high-class girl and a working-stiff, but the old plotline works for a reason. In the hands of a good author, like Arno, it makes for a fantastic read.” Read more.

“I wanted to give her a shake or two and then she redeemed herself by changing her mind about wanting to change him. I loved that Tommy knew exactly what he wanted and was willing to do what he needed in order to win Siena’s Heart. I give In His Corner four hearts!” Read more.

“When I started to read, almost from the opening line, I became more and more captured by the story, the characters, and the words on the page. To me this book has it all…I sat down and read this book in one night. I couldn’t have put it down even if I tried (and I didn’t try).” Read more.
