There's a handy ha-ha at Mottisfont Abbey, not far from here. I go and measure it by eye sometimes and wonder whether my plan would work.

Seriously though, I do thank everyone who's bought the book - I can't keep on going mushy all over here, Amazon and the rest of the Internet, but I am sincerely grateful. :heart:

Just finished it!

Was going to save it until we go to France [off to Dartford Travelodge tonight for early train tomorrow] but I'd already finished the Gil Cunningham, so what's a girl to do?

Downloaded :) I love your Charlotte Richmond series, sealpuppy, so looking forward to my first Harriet Quigley mystery. Are there any Charlotte books in the pipeline? (pretty please?)

Thanks, Mrs Helston - Charlotte's my favourite too. She's hovering but hasn't moved into my head yet, so her fourth book will be a while. Meanwhile I've got a 'romantic novel with historical interludes' to sort out and then I can play with my WW1 GO-Krimi which has a heroine who reminds me of a younger Charlotte!

It's all on hold at the moment because of my unsolicited stay in hospital with concussion and emergency hip replacement - don't ask. When my brain is less addled I hope to be able to do joined-up thinking! Two weeks on from the accident at least I'm home and SLOC is being fabulously kind and helpful. Progress!

Meantime, I have just finished The Art of Murder - really enjoyed it - thanks, Nicola. Adding more good wishes here for your speedy recovery - I hope all goes smoothly from now on.

Oh no, so sorry to hear that sealpuppy, hope you get better soon.
I really enjoyed the Art of Murder- Harriet and Sam are such a great pair!

Thank you, Mrs Helston, that's good to hear.
I'm pottering gently and reminding myself that it's only 3 weeks ago and that it will Take Time - as I'm constantly reminded. The battered brain is less addled and the battered hip is coming along. :D

Finally got my paws on The Art of Murder (among my Christmas presents) and enjoyed it greatly, even if I did find the ending a bit disturbing - not a bad thing in a krimi, IMO. I especially loved that the art group did so many of the things I remember from my various art classes!

ETA: I'd meant to add that I really was amused by the wretched Jess and all her pseudo-Arthurian twaddling - 'woe-lorn', indeed! Brilliant...

How nice of you, Noreen. I'm glad it was disturbing! As for the art content I picked the brains of fellow members of our art workshop so it's all authentic.

I don't suppose you fancy doing an Amazon review, do you? Apparently they do something to the algorithms - no use asking me! No worries if you'd rather not.

Now that's something I've never done before, Nicky. But hey, why not? OK, I'll put my thinking cap on...

Great, thanks, Noreen. It can be one word or one line! I'm glad you liked the dire poetry, it was fun to write.

Even better if you enjoyed writing it - and I notice that my friend damaskcat has also written a review. :D It might take me a few days as I'm still running around for himself after the knee replacement...

Damaskcat has written fabulous reviews of all my books - I wondered if she might be a CS fan!

Oh, good! I knew she was familiar with your books. And she's sort of the reverse of me - tips more toward the Abbey School than the CS.
