Novel Girl in the Red Coat

Review of the Month

Our review this month is for "The Girl in the Red Coat" by Kate Hamer, and was submitted by one of our customers. 

"Really loved this book from start to finish, couldn't put it down. Having said that it is a book to read in big chunks and doesn't seem to work if you dip into it. Once I started reading it I got totally immersed in the lives of Beth and Carmel their characters were well developed and believable. One of those books that you can't wait to find out what happens in the end but don't want it to finish".
