What People Say
Really enjoyed this fast paced book with an unexpected twist, and loved the Edinburgh setting! I read this in 2 days as was hooked but diary format would make it easy to dip in and out.Amazon Review for ‘Alive’
I wasn’t too sure I’d enjoy the Diary format but it works so well and keeps the story moving along. Didn’t have a clue who had done what or how the book was going to finish which was refreshing. Great ending and a great read.Amazon Review for ‘Alive’
