Customer ReviewsSee All
I have read all the books about the Reilly family and Cliffehaven they are delightful reading and I cannot wait to read another Ellie Dean book she is an excellent writer.
While We're Apart
As usual I am left wanting more...I love returning to Cliffehaven and the occupants of Beachview Guesthouse, it's like going home. I hope that Ellie Dean doesn't keep us waiting too long for more of the same. Highly recommended read but a good point made by the previous reviewer is to read these novels in date order.
While we're apart
Yet another brilliant read, I almost feel part of this family being as I have now read every one of your books. I highly recommend you read them in date order so the stories don't override each other.
Sad thing now is that I have to pacify myself with another author until you have written another book.
