Well, I have to say, my Friday hadn’t got off to the best start. The children were grumpy on the last morning of term; instead of the promised snow, all we got was snow and drizzle; and then I got home after the school run and realised that I had accidentally taken my four year-old’s glasses home with me. So yes, I had to trudge back to school again!
Imagine my delight, and the turnaround of my fortunes and mood, when I found not one but TWO fantastic reviews for Sophie’s Turn waiting for me!
A REVIEWER’S REVIEW…
The first review is by Kate on her lovely book blog, Me, My Books and I.
Kate and I ‘met’ on Twitter, exchanged a few DMs and emails, and then she set about reading Sophie’s Turn in something like… two days flat! Kate really connected with the premise of the book as it reminded her of her own teen band obsessions. Yes!!! This is exactly what I had in mind when I was writing the book in the first place, and I am so happy to hear that comment! :-) Kate concludes: “This is an exciting, fun story that captivated me from start to finish, I simply can’t wait to read the second story in the trilogy to find out what happens next for Sophie.” To read the full review, please visit Me, My Books and I, and feel free to leave a comment if you have a moment.
Thank you, Kate, for taking the time to read Sophie’s Turn and for writing such a detailed, thoughtful and enthusiastic review! That makes all the difference to this here indie author. XX
…AND A CUSTOMER’S REVIEW
The next review is a customer review posted both on Amazon and Goodreads. It’s worth (drumroll!) FIVE stars and titled “Chick-lit at its best!” The review ends on a really high note: “I absolutely loved this book. The plot is funny, exciting, full of chemistry and I couldn’t put it down. As others have commented, the ending will surprise you…. Looking forward to the sequel! ”
