  1. Thanks so much Jen & Mandie. I too have read some really great books this year which helped to keep me sane during a horrible year, and I can’t say enough thankyous for the effort that you both put into this blog. The authors put a great deal of effort into each book too, and I really don’t know how they do it time after time and come up with addictive plots and characters that make them memorable. So my grateful thanks to them too. I’m spending the Xmas period in wonderful isolation with a jam-packed e-reader and maybe just a little drink or two.

    1. Thank you June. I think we’ve all needed books more than ever this year, as a way to forget and make life a little more normal again: I hope you have a wonderful Christmas. A full e-reader sounds like heaven to me.
