    While I never met Jen, we interacted quite a bit. She was always supportive, friendly, outgoing, and welcoming, especially to a debut author. I am incredibly sad to hear this news, and all my thoughts are with her family. She will be greatly missed.

    This makes me so incredibly sad. She was such a kindhearted, sweet individual. I didn’t get to talk to her much, but the few times that we did speak, she always managed to make me smile.

    The world seems a lot sadder today.
    Jennifer Rardin will truly be missed.
    She not only gave us a wonderful adventure in her books, she also aloud us to share a little part of who she really was, with photos of her travels, stories of her and her family and her whitty & humorous replies to our emails & comments on her website.
    My deepest sympathy to her family and loved ones.

    This is a real shock.
    Jen e-mailed me out of the blue a couple of years ago and we ended up trading messages as I gave her info on Scotland for background for ‘One More Bite’
    I re-read our correspondence only a couple of weeks ago…she was a really nice person.

    MY thoughts and heart go out to her family and friends!

    I just finished reading “The Deadliest Bite” book 8 and the final edition of The Jaz Parks series. I am still so saddened by Ms.Rardin’s death, saying good bye to Jaz and Vayl and the rest of the gang is like leaving old friends. RIP Jennifer Rardin
