Freya Barrington Hi Mary,

My latest book, Gozo Is the Grass Greener has just been released.

Check it out here on Goodreads;

Or visit my blogsite;

Gozo is one of the Maltese islands and currently very popular and topical due to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt making a movie there!

Many thanks Mary -

All the best
