Ivy Lane Series Wins Awards!

A number of people have issued lists of their favourite books of 2015  on their blogs and I’m delighted to feature on three such lists. Thank you so much to Agi of On My Bookshelf and Laura of Little Northern Soul.

First up is Agi. She read 211 books last year and I’m thrilled that she counts Ivy Lane as one of her top ten. She says: There is everything you could wish for in a book, humour, sadness, love, friendship, hope, together with fantastic writing and brilliant characters.

You can read her full review here.






Laura Holdsworth is a fan of Ivy Lane too and in her opinion it was one of the ‘best serials of the year’. She also called me the Queen of the serials, which I’m hoping catches on! She says: The story is beautifully written, set on an allotment which is an usual and brilliant location and is just a genuinely lovely, heart-warming read. 

Laura’s blog post is here.

You can read the rest here.






I’ve had amazing support from bloggers this year – and actually, from other authors too. Thank you to Agi and Laura and thanks too to everyone who has bought these books, passed them onto friends tweeted your enjoyment and sent me your words of encouragement. It means an awful lot.
