I absolutely loved The Daisy Chain which wasn’t at all what I was expecting. Part romance, part history book, part spy thriller, this charming page-turner ticks all my boxes! Swirling from the beauty of Kew Gardens to the opulence of the Queen’s chambers, to the dark underworld of Georgian England, the story kept me gripped throughout and the wonderfully drawn characters will stay with me. Blooming marvellous!

Posy Lovell: author, The Kew Gardens Girls and The Kew Garden Girls at War.

What a great read! A really enjoyable romantic historical novel about the slave trade triangle in which the strongest characters are the nicely drawn female leads of both races. There is great dialogue, I was amused by the cameo appearances of Capability Brown, Gainsborough, Captain Cook etc., and the style of writing is interestingly visual.

Manoli Olympitis: author, Marked Cards

A visual experience where every scene is alive with colour and vitality. It’s a rare treat to read a book about all of my favourite things – art, gardens, history, adventure and of course a sprinkling of romance. A satisfying, feel-good read.

Fleur Cowgill, Artist

It’s a real page turner – I often don’t finish books, but I couldn’t put this one down and I didn’t want it to end.

Hayley Furman

Despite a deceptively demur opening, the story rapisly gathers pace taking readers on an intriguing, thought-provoking and entertainig ride. A great feel-good story with an excellent twist in the tail – both my wife and I really enjoyed it. We just hope there’s a sequel.
