  1. So interesting, Margo. A new writer to me and another to keep an eye out for when I am dragged kicking and screaming to a bookstore (not!), or Amazon hypnotises me to ‘add to basket.’ I know the Cotswolds well. Lived on the borders once. Fab locations for stories. Also, many thanks for your condolences upon the death of our beloved Queen Elizabeth. Live will never be the same. Have a fab September. xx


    1. I agree with you, Jane – life will not be the same now. Her Majesty’s death has been a real blow. I’ll admit I’ve not been to the Cotswolds, but the books I’ve read that are set there have been terrific; I’ll bet it’s a lovely area. Enjoy September, yourself! xx

  2. Thank you for your condolences, Margot. It’s strange how much we’ve all been affected by her death, whether monarchists or not. I think the Royals are such a constant presence in our national life that they come to feel like part of our extended family. And the Queen set such an example of duty and service. It’s the passing of an era – a last link to the WW2 generation.


    1. You know, that’s what I’ve been thinking, too, FictionFan. Not being UK or Commonwealth, it’s hard for me to feel the same connection. But at the same time, I always had the greatest respect for Her Majesty’s example of service, duty, and strength in the face of trouble. For many people, as you know, she’s the only head of state they’ve ever known. So, yes, monarchist or not, it’s hard to deny the impact the Queen had on so much. She will be missed.
