Surprisingly rubbish

I would have given it one star - the short story really isn't very good at all. But the second star is for the teaser to the new book out in March which was a good read, typical Katie Fforde, and certainly left me looking forward to the full thing when it's released.

Load of rubbish

Don't waste your money buying this. I didn't realise it was a short story, I thought it was an 'offer' price. I can't believe I had to pay for it and Katie Fforde is usually so good. I'm very disappointed and will learn from my mistake next time.

Katie Fforde is normally so good but this was a complete disappointment. Short story which had no substance and a very unbelievable ending...I wouldn’t bother reading it!
