Havent reviewed in a while! Been cracking on with the reading though... :)
Enjoyed this one, partly because of the local setting :) an interesting take on the alleged big cat sightings in the area. The depiction of family life after the arrival of a newborn is also spot on. Only downside perhaps is the padding around the story can sometimes go on a little.
