Lindsay of The Little Reader Library said: "I loved this story. It’s a wonderful, beautifully written tale.

Great review of Sleeping Patterns by The Little Reader Library
Vanished keeps getting lovely reviews by book bloggers in the UK. The Little Reader Library says: "This is a fast-paced crime novel. I really enjoyed reading it, I like this author's style of writing, and felt like the plot carried me along. It's one of those reads where I kept thinking, I'll read just one more chapter".

...The author sensitively explores Ruth's feelings of loss, of not being certain of the next step in her life, and, as the seasons change, the beautiful but increasingly isolated location and the depiction of the wintry weather adds to the atmosphere of the story. Equally sensitive is the portrayal of the strong love story that emerges, and how someone who knows so much about death can teach someone else so much about life...

The Queen's Secret by Victoria Lamb - a quote from my review on the author's website
The View on the Way Down by Rebecca Wait - a quote from my review on the author's websiteI loved this novel. I really enjoyed reading it, and I felt that the intrigue and pace of the story was sustained throughout the whole book. There are some very amiable and entertaining characters ... The storyline has many interesting and engaging strands, and secrets abound, including the secret that the Queen hides.... I felt like I was in the very safe hands of a gifted storyteller whilst reading this thoroughly researched, compelling, and convincing debut novel.
‘One of my principal thoughts after finishing this novel was that it’s so special to read a book that actually reminds you why you love reading so much… I don’t use ratings on my blog anymore but if I did this book would get 6 out of 5.’ ~ The Little Reader Library
