It’s a big week for newly published books and I’ll post reviews of the first three books on the list over the next few days. The Frozen Lake I absolutely loved. In fact I missed a whole evening of fave TV programmes (the only evening, I should say), because I couldn’t stop reading it. Couldn’t put it down!

I was rather tired of reading new books for review and also rather low, so I hid away in the comforting world of Smockfarthing. I will never understand why Grace James’ charming, funny books are not more widely known. I know about three people who love John and Mary as much as I do, which is not many for a series of twenty lovely books.


Is it John and Mary who ate the laburnum? I loved them!
Yes! It's in the very first book. I'm so glad you like J & M.
I've got The Frozen Lake and The Villa In Italy on my kindle :) I'll be reading the Italy one first after I've finished the current book.

Sorry you felt a bit low. I expect your grotty weather doesn't help *Hugs*
Lucky me, I still have quite a few to read. I'll be surprised if you don't enjoy those.

Thank you!
