Escape to romance and happy-ever-after in this lovely tale

Prima

An absolutely delightful read

Bookworms and Shutter Bugs Blog

A good, light read, ideal for travelling

LibroFullTime Blog

A Secret Garden would be a great holiday read for romantic fiction fans; something to leaf through while sitting in a sunny spot, enjoying some peace and quiet

Art and Soul Blog
