- The Review: you’ll know by now that one of my favourite forms of escapism is through a T A William’s book. I opened this with the usual anticipation and was beyond not disappointed. We begin with a dedication that made me nod, and proceeded to a place I wouldn’t have guessed, an African clinic under attack. The scene was cinematic, and I sat forward (I do this sometimes!) mesmitised. I adored this book. I loved the ‘will they won’t they,’ or even the possibility of a love triangle, I loved the clash of worlds, the vividness and beauty (as always!) of the settings, and the characters were extra special. I have to admit her job was so intriguing. I’ll admit I had one niggle, the ending which says something about my personality, or maybe an insecurity, who knows(?!) But it changed nothing-a fantastic book, totally recommended!!! Thanks so much to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the book in return for an honest review.

- About the author I’m a man. And a pretty old man as well. I did languages at university a long time ago and then lived and worked in France and Switzerland before going to Italy for seven years as a teacher of English. My Italian wife and I then came back to the UK with our little daughter (now long-since grown up) where I ran a big English language school for many years. We now live in a sleepy little village in Devonshire. I’ve been writing almost all my life but it was only seven years ago that I finally managed to find a publisher who liked my work enough to offer me my first contract. The fact that I am now writing romantic comedy is something I still find hard to explain. My early books were thrillers and historical novels. Maybe it’s because there are so many horrible things happening in the world today that I feel I need to do my best to provide something to cheer my readers up. My books provide escapism to some gorgeous locations, even if travel to them is currently difficult.
