We’re having a heatwave! Giveaway!

Hello everyone…

July has been very mixed in the UK, and the heatwave with record temperatures didn’t last long!  For a few days it bought the country to a standstill in some areas, but as the month came to an end, the rain fell hard in lovely Lancashire, where I live.

Superb as always

I adore Diane Chamberlain’s books and this was no exception. Impossible to put down until I’d read the very last page. The characters are real, people you care about. A stunning read covering a difficult subject matter.

A simply gorgeous read. So much detail and such great characterisation made caring for the characters very easy, right to the final page. One of the author’s best.

Joanna Lambert Re: The Camomile Lawn - loved Mary Wesley back in the '90s. Got very addicted to her books and have read every one. Amazing lady who got her publishing deal at the grand old age of 75!
