That's lovely, Gil, thanks. I didn't want a romantic relationship, I know nothing of brothers, so I opted for a cousin as being a close relationship. Weirdly, I've had people ask if they're going to get together! Nooooooooo :shock:

Have just ordered it - and very amused to see the 'recommended for you based on purchase' includes the Jodi Taylor St Mary's books (sorry but I'm not a big fan); a couple of Dorothea Moores - and our very own Victoria Prescott!

I too am looking forward to seeing Harriet and Sam again.

Thanks, Jen. How nice to be recommended alongside Victoria Prescott - Chalet Girls get everywhere!

Downloaded it the other day, but as my kindle is organised by author I then had to store it under the right author. When I came to start reading it, I realised that I had started the wrong book - so I am quite happily re-reading the one about the Gang planning a holiday. I should maybe save the new one for my holiday.

How funny, but thank you anyway! I warn you that's my only (slightly) rude book!

Definitely not!!! I love them just as they are, and I'm afraid I prefer these two out of all your characters, sealpuppy. :roll: Please don't shoot me! I haven't as yet downloaded/bought it, but will get there.

I'm very fond of them too, Mary - thanks! And you don't have to buy it, you know! But I'm extremely grateful when people do. :D

Just finished it. Really enjoyed it. Thank you Nicky.
I'm another who prefers to read from the beginning to the end.

Ahhh - you know, back when dinosaurs roamed the earth and I joined the CBB it never in a million years occurred to me that any of you would read my books. I'm so grateful to you all.

Read, reviewed and recommended to a friend who has texted to say how much she enjoyed it.

I spent most of August with Gil Cunningham - read the new one, then read all the others again.

Goodness Nicky! I bet there aren't many British krimi authors who can boast of two people reading their latest book in the Czech Republic within days of publication :D

And when I joined the CBB I never dreamed I would be in touch with a real live authoress (to use an EBD term).

Have just finished the latest adventure of Harriet and Sam and thoroughly enjoyed it. Love their warm relationship with Avril always in the background - no, no, no, they should/would never "get together".

Love also how Harriet can assume her headmistress persona at will and how realistic Sam is about his clerical status.

Thank you very much.

Why on earth would Sam and Harriet need a romantic relationship? They couldn't be any closer or more perfect together than they are! And speaking as someone who has a close relationship with several of her cousins, I appreciate seeing that sort of thing depicted.

Totally agree about Harriet and Sam - their relationship is lovely, and realistic. I really like seeing good friendships between people of different sexes in books; some people seem to think it's an impossibility.

I finished The Art of Murder last night and enjoyed it greatly. How's the next book coming along, Nicky? :wink:

I'm revising it savagely, Abi! Something different. I'm not sure about it, though in a way it's back to my writing roots; a contemporary romantic novel with historical interludes, set in the same universe as Scuba Dancing and one of the Scuba characters drops in briefly. Heaven knows when I'll be done as I flit between that and my GO Krimi set in 1918 - 'Something Nasty in the Ha-Ha'.

I do think of you every time I see a ha-ha at a National Trust property :lol:. There's a good one at Bodnant Garden.

There's a very nice ha-ha at Benington Lordship in Herts. In fact the house itself would make a wonderful home for a GO school....it featured in the recent Just William TV series as the home of the Bott family.
