A wonderful discovery
It’s in the top 5. I’ve just bought the next one in the series. It made an 11 hour drive bearable...actually enjoyable
I like Tom and his gentle nature. He seems like the kind of guy we all need in our lives.
I felt she read all of the parts really well and kept the story flowing smoothly
So parts made me laugh like Leo’s accurate perceptions of people and the village gossip
I found elly annoying and just wanted to shake her.
