There's no doubt my manuscript is in its best shape after Lisa reviewed it. She was incredibly detailed and focused and caught all the little things I had missed. She verified stylistic preferences with me, which I was able to quickly address directly in Google .docs. When I had questions about citations in my book, she offered to help me out with them. Not least of all, Lisa was a joy to work with! She was friendly and responsive. I highly recommend her!
