Tomorrow, I’ve been invited by fellow Leiceter Chapter member and friend Katherine Garbera to blog with the fabulous Jaunty Quills, and the post’s going to be about September – a time of all that ‘mists and mellow fruitfulness’ stuff, but also a sad and somewhat backward-looking time for my family. Without going into details, I was typically feeling a bit gloomy as September began but then this lovely 5* review popped up on Amazon and everything looked more positive and shiny. So, whoever you are – thanks! here’s a happy autumnal picture to go with it, taken at my lovely friends The Theakstons’ house in the Lot in the depths of autumnal France – more on tomorrow’s blog:
Sweet Proposal – It has the Feel Good Factor! 2 Sep 2013
A debut novel that involves love, a delightful selection of characters and chocolate – Scrumptious!
I felt like I had made friends with a whole new bunch of people and I was sad to say goodbye to them at the end. I took a real shine to George, he added a great deal to the story and did a brilliant job bringing out the best in the other characters.
The story flowed really well, a lovely style of writing that had a light touch even when dealing with more serious issues. There are some great touches of humour throughout the book too, which made me smile a lot.
As for the cafe – I’m keeping my fingers crossed this was for real!
