Stealing Roses was launched at Waterstones in Newport on the Isle of Wight last Friday (24th). Thank you to all who came along to to the launch!

Here are some reviews of the book…

An assured and engaging historical romance set on the Isle of Wight . . . I thoroughly enjoyed Stealing Roses and the ending left me thinking I would love to find out, to coin a phrase, what Eveline did next.

A lovely visit to the Isle of Wight at a time when the railways were being built. I immediately warmed to Eveline who wishes to escape this rural place. Her wishes could soon come true as the railways are to offer her and others like her the chance to move around, or even to escape…

It’s a fascinating time period and I really enjoyed meeting the characters and wondering in which direction the story would take.
