    Just wanted to say how much I love your books. Stumbled across one initially having no idea what I was letting myself in for, and I have never laughed so much reading Divine.
    I have now decided that your books need to come with a warning (actually several), ‘Will not be able to put down until you have read from cover to cover’, ‘Ensure you have a bountiful supply of both tissue and tena panty liners!’.

    Having just finished Bonkers, I have to say I have never laughed and cried so much reading a book. Love your books so much I am now committed to buying and reading ALL of them. Keep the fantastic stories coming – you are top of my favourite authors list for sure. :)
