Thanks, guys.  It seems a long time since it was my brand new baby - more like it's off to university for the first time!

Nice review from "Booklist" for "Kindred Spirits".  "Cleverly plotted"..."gripping"..."effective"... 

And no, I didn't write it myself.

Thanks, guys.  But rocket...?  Well, maybe a North Korean type rocket, that takes off with great promise, fizzes briefly, and then lands in the sea and sinks without trace.

Thanks, Lin.

In the interests of honesty, I have to say the reviewer at "Publishers Weekly" wasn't so impressed.  "Fanciful" ... "snail's pace"... "high-class soap opera"...  I definitely didn't write that one myself!

Oh well, you can't please all of the people all of the time.

At least it was 'high class' soap opera ;-)

As with all reviews if it's not their cup of tea you can't make them drink it.  If they want coffee then all teas will taste horrible.  Doesn't mean it is horrible.
