Brilliant imagination!!!’ NetGalley reviewer ?????‘And Then There Were None meets Groundhog Day… The author does a great job of making you feel as if you’re in the 1920s; it’s a clever Christie-like whodunnit (and I didn’t guess!) but it’s more than that. It’s a coming-of-age story… a lovely romance; and magical realism with the timeloop… Thoroughly good.’ NetGalley reviewer ?????‘So many twists and surprises, it was a thrilling experience trying to work out what was going on and who was responsible for the murders. Definitely a little Agatha Christie like, with a sprinkling of Rebecca for good measure.’ NetGalley reviewer ?????‘A sumptuous, suspenseful and very satisfying read… Skilfully weaves drama, glamour, comedy, romance and coming of age in a time-twisty tale of suspense… Atmospheric… rich in period detail… perfectly paced.’ Nancy Peach, bestselling author ?????‘To sum this book up in one word... Absobloodymazing!!!… I am in love with the way [the author] writes historical fiction, timeslips, mysteries and romance all in one book. She really is clever, the way she hides her clues throughout the book and gives her readers so many ‘aha’ moments throughout. The sheer amount of twists leaves you feeling seasick in the best possible way.’ NetGalley reviewer ?????‘What a creative fascinating story!… A unique intriguing mystery set in 1923 with a fascinating time loop… Reminded me of an Agatha Christie… Kept me intrigued from start to finish… I loved it.’ NetGalley reviewer ?????‘Kept me reading late into the night… Extraordinary “whodunnit” set in a different era… Reminded me of the film Groundhog Day… I loved this book.’ NetGalley reviewer ?????
