I've read The Good Sister and Isobel's Promise so I was really looking forward to A Single Woman and it didn't disappoint. As the book is set in my home town of Glasgow I could relate to a lot of the street names and landmarks. The characters are so believable and easy to relate to.

Romance at its best. Isla teaches at a private school. She’s definitely single and surprised when love comes her way. Loved it and shouldn’t be missed out once it’s released.
