I really enjoyed this lovely romp through the glorious Yorkshire countryside...a really lovely summer read and the start of a promising new series of books which I am sure will delight readers'
Just the right amount of nostalgia... wonderful and very poignant'
For fans of crime fiction set in the ancient world, this one is not to be missed
A stunning, emotional, beautiful tale of friendship, love, and the importance of being who you need to be. I laughed, I cried, and I became completely ensnared, and I cannot recommend it highly enough - it really has got it all!!
A wonderful heartwarming story... I couldn't turn the pages quickly enough.
I LOVED this book!! I really enjoyed the whole thing and would very highly recommend it - a really lovely read!!
Davis's prose is a lively joy, and Flavia's Rome is sinister and gloriously real
The romance, tragedy and drama play[s] out alongside some deeply poignant animal stories...an absolute must read for animal lovers and grown-up fans of the original series'
Praise for the Hope Meadows series -:
An adorable read [with] a real sense of village community
'Lindsey Davis has seen off all her competitors to become the unassailable market leader in the 'crime in Ancient Rome' genre . . . Davis's squalid, vibrant Rome is as pleasurable as ever'
An incredibly lovely story'
