I don’t know what I expected from The Secrets on Chicory Lane but it was definitely not what I got. And I don’t really know how to describe this book. Is it a mystery? Not really. But it’s definitely suspenseful. And it’s also sad and memorabl..." Read more of this review »

Giulia Hi Raymond,
Amazon won't let me leave a review on their site as it says the book hasn't been published yet. I will try again.

It really was a fantastic book, tragically sad story but really well written.

I hope you write more like this.

Best regards,
Giulia
