    • Katy Lee’s characterizations are so compelling that I felt as though I was right there. The insights into the schizophrenic mind and the emotions of their loved ones were particularly gripping. The spiritual elements of this story, from the concepts of virtue to the dangers of virtual living (in all its layers of meaning), unfold in a completely organic way that will leave the reader pondering them long afterward. One hundred percent romance. One hundred percent suspense. This book is a keeper [...]


    • Real Virtue is an engrossing story of a Mel, young woman who flees her past to recreate herself in a whole new image. The world she has made for herself—and thinks she controls—begins to unravel when her father is injured in a hit-and-run accident and Mel returns to the home she left many years before. Mel is forced to confront reality and fantasy on many levels: her own involvement with a video game, the mystery surrounding the attempts on her life, her mother’s schizophrenia, and the qua [...]


    • Katy Lee succeeds wonderfully in covering several deep topics in one amazing novel.The spiritual awakening of the protagonist, Mel, is masterfully intertwined with her gaming addiction, physical danger, romantic interest, and emotional upheaval. The plot thickens as Mel receives news that her father has been seriously injured in a hit-and-run incident, leaving her schizophrenic mother vulnerably alone. Mel has to face her past love as well as the life she ran away from, and comes to terms with t [...]


    • I really liked this book. It took me a while to finish it because I don't have a lot of time to read paper books -- most of my books are ebooks, so I can "read" (i.e. listen to them being read by my phone) in the car, read them while I'm waiting for something, etc. I got about 2/3 the way through, then the last third or so, I couldn't put the book down, and kept reading till about 3 am. It had a surprise ending (not 6th sense type surprise, but a bit of a twist) that I didn't figure out myself ( [...]


    • I am not a big fan of love stories but add some suspense and real life issues and I'm in. This is the first book I have read by this author and must say I was truly impressed. This was an easy read but very indepth. The author covered so many different subjects and brought them all together beautifully. I loved Jeremy's intimate relationship with Christ and how he would not compromise that for anyone even someone he loved. Mel's journey was an enjoyable read. She had so many issues in her life t [...]


    • I was drawn into this story from the opening page and I loved the unusual story premise. Mel creates an avatar in her virtual world that crosses over into her real life in a very scary way.I liked how Mel’s relationship with her mentally ill mother evolved during the story. We gain an insight into the very real difficulties facing people who struggle with mental illness and how their illness impacts their loved ones.I enjoyed the developing romance between childhood friends Mel and Jeremy as t [...]


    • Generally speaking, I'm not a big fan of the romance genre. However, I decided to check out at least the free sample since Katy Lee is someone I know and respect in "real life." I didn't expect it, but this debut novel hooked me with its suspense! And it clipped along at a perfectly meted pace. Still, I whipped through it just to see what happened next! By the time I reached the end (too soon, and with regret), I found I really cared about the charactersd I even enjoyed the romance. Go figure. S [...]


    • Real Virtue is a wonderful read. Katy Lee instantly draws you in by creating a likeable heroine who is caught up in a virtual world that borders on obsession. Since I love stories about heroines returning to their hometowns, I was intrigued by Mel's stormy past and her fractured relationship with her mother. The author skillfully painted a portrait of a daughter who has had to deal with her mother's mental illness. The danger elements are exciting, as is the mystery that heightens throughout the [...]


    • This was a really good book. I loved the mystery behind everything but also the correlation between the virtual world and the real world. The characters were so well written you remember them even after you've finished the book.


    • I loved this debut novel by Katy Lee. As someone who's spent many hours playing The Sims, I could relate to getting lost in a virtual world over the real one. I also enjoyed the sizzle between the heroine Mel and Jeremy. If you're a fan of romantic suspense - don't miss this book!


    • "This book is a great read. It kept me on the edge of my seat and turning those pages. It made me laugh and cry. I loved it. 5 stars and a standing ovation to author, Katy Lee on her debut novel."


    • Though I'm not a gamer it didn't matter with this story or author. She had me right in the middle of the action. I love a story that keeps me on the edge of my seat until the very end.




    • The book deals with successful restaurant owner Mel having to go back home to deal with a family crisis. She left her small home town 8 years ago because of the rejection and ridicule she received from the townspeople due to her schizophrenic mother. Mel made her self completely over, almost unrecognizable, and turned herself into the virtual reality character she is obsessed with. She now is home to take care of her mother while her father is in a coma from a hit and run accident. Once home, sh [...]
