230:pm Chapter and Verse -
Vanda Symon continues her detective series starring Sam Shephard*..and Jenny Haworth sets her new novel in Paris just after the Armistice.
I was nonplussed with the review in the ODT last week which actually was awful but. here we go, I LOVED the book.
Trust me! Dear readers. It's great! GREAT
IMHP - gREAT.
Tania, I read that review and thought it was appalling. A really bad piece of reviewing, not because it was negative, but its reasons for being negative (eg the female detective swears more than a woman should). I'm surprised the ODT ran it, and how frustrating for the author and publisher when review space is so limited in papers these days.
TKR RK - I missed the review (and I *get* the ODT!)- who was the reviewer?
Keri, it was Geoff Adams.
