I had to write to tell you I could not put down your latest book - and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It had some nice unusual touches. I am quite jealous of the hero in some respects as painting was something planned as a career, but fate intervened, as it does. Congratulations and keep it up. I do look forward to the next instalment. I trust there is one?

I have just read your book for the second time! I read it quickly, then recently I decided to read it again, more slowly! My father was an artist, I myself spent three years at an art school in London, so I felt in sympathy with it, and I look forward to the next one.
I am not in the habit of writing to writers of books I have read. However, I felt the need to write to you, having just finished reading the third of your Nankervis books. They are wonderful books and have an ongoing drive to them - I cannot wait to see what happens next. You obviously know what you are writing about. The characters have depth. The places you write about exist - I know, because I know them too. I walk with Chel, Oliver and Nonie through the streets of St. Ives and the area of Penzance to Land's End. The Hampshire/Dorset areas, you bring to life, with the rather forced style of life there. Well done - don't keep us waiting too long for the next book.

I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your new book, and that I eagerly await the sequel. Once I started reading I was hooked. The characters are so well developed and the situation believable. Please keep writing - I cannot wait for the next!

I have just finished reading your latest book, and what a read! Having read your three previous books in this series, I have to admire the way you link them, but so subtly that each one stands alone in its own right. The setting of the sailing school and the pub, on the Helford River, will appeal to the thousands of people who, like me, know and love the area. The trials and tribulations of running an hotel, with all the problems of difficult guests and hard-to-come-by staff, sound as if they come from the heart! (experience?) and the joy of sailing in such a lovely place takes me back years. We have all known people like Cressida and now know what was behind Debbie's problems in the earlier books. Like others who have read these books, I hope that it will not be too long before we have the next book.

... I have finished the book (A Dream of Dragons) and in fact have read it twice - which shows how much I enjoyed it and I really did enjoy it! Whenever a book has moved me, I always start it again as soon as I finish it, so that I re-enjoy it and pick up on any nuances I might have missed the first time around. I think your book is fantastic, you should sell the film rights.
