    Oh! If we only knew what was ahead of us in 2020! The Chronicles of St. Mary’s got me through. I listen to them through Audiobooks, Zara Ramm is a wonderful narrator! I was not sure about the short stories, but after I was on a roll, the short stories were devoured just as fast and enjoyed just as much. Love all the characters and love the humor. It puts a smile on my face causing my family members wondering what in the world is up with me. :) Thank you for the wonder stories…

    Hi Jodi, I just wanted to say a big, big, thank you for your wonderful books. During lockdown no. 1 I bought the collection of 10 books and just could not put them dowm. I went through the first five like a dose of salts and then thought this covid could last a long time. So I limited myself to one chapter a day for the rest and every day I had something to laugh out loud for. Being on my own it was the highlight of the day. I am now waiting for 18th November when I can start Doing Time to finish at Christmas when I hope to get Hard Time for my Christmas box. Happy holidays to you and keep safe and well.

    Have just finished Elizabeth Cage novels and hope there will be a 3rd. Fantastic books which I devoured in 36hrs for both! Please please write more!

    Just finished the latest St. Mary’s and am still recovering from the thunderbolts! So many narrative threads tied up — where will Max and company go from here?

    Also have reread Isabella Barclay’s foray into the world of Regency romance and wishing mightily that she would venture there again!

    Hi. Sounds like you’re going to be busy. I’m elated to know there’s another st Mary’s book on the way. My only mild disappointment is that it looks like I’ll have to wait a while for the next Elizabeth Cage. Keep up the good work, and please don’t spread yourself too thin :)
