All in the Leaves - Review Three

The last of my three early readers has written a review for 'All in the Leaves.'
I understand its a bit of a tease to read the reviews before the book is published, but I'm so thrilled, I wanted to share it.
The book should be out later this year, once the editing and proofreading is complete. In the meantime, enjoy the review! 

All In the Leaves

By Pat Elliott

It was with much anticipation that I began my journey with Anna, Chloe and the various other characters in “All in the Leaves”.

Pat has brought the characters to life so much that you will laugh out loud, scream at certain characters and in the case of one character want to hit them with the nearest heavy object (but that might be just me).

Pat’s description of the various areas, Edinburgh in particular, really made me feel that I was there with Anna and I could picture the scenery perfectly.

The hardest part of reading the book was only being able to read a couple of chapters each time as Pat was writing it.

Once the book was completed, I sat down on Pat’s sofa and had read the last 5 or 6 chapters because I was so engrossed that there was no way I was leaving until I had read the last page.

The book did not disappoint and I look forward to reading books 2 and 3 and continuing the journey with Anna, Chloe and the others.
