Which Order To Read My Books In…

I get lots of messages from people asking me if there is an order they should read my books in, so I thought I’d do a handy post about it. To be honest, they are all written as stand-alones, but I do sometimes bring characters back and I know some readers prefer to read them in order. This list is in order of publication and lets you know which books are connected…
