It is with great pleasure that I let you all know what a super person Julie is and how wonderful her books are. I have read them all so feel I can voice my opinion to everyone and say, get on Amazon and buy these books.
Next week, is Julie week on my blog so everything you wanted to know or if you have questions you would like to ask her, plus I may well tell you some things about Julie that you don’t know!
This story keeps you turning those pages to find out just that little bit more, Julie asked me if I got the answer right about the murders but yet again I failed. I need an easy one for myself lol. I love the way local places are all incorporated into her books, Whitstable and a surrounding area is a beautiful place and well worth a visit if you have never been. The oyster festival is very busy but well worth pushing through the crowds to taste fresh from the sea, seafood. Julie often gets away for the solitude when she is writing and makes her way to her beach hut, what an ideal place to write while looking out to sea. Seven books and still going strong plus they could well be on your TV screens in the future. The characters are all so believable and very reminiscent of small villages where everyone knows everyone else plus a lot of their business. I love Dolly who is Pearl’s mother, very down to earth, I can imagine her getting into many scrapes. If you are a food lover then the descriptions will make your mouth water, it is also very like a couple of the restaurants that are available to eat in while visiting Whitstable. It would be really great if Pearls and Dollys houses were open to the public as then you could see where it all happens. Pearls clothes are another wonderful addition to the stories with the descriptions written so good you can visualise the clothes. Romance is always good in a series and this one is excellent as Pearl and the local detective have a very hot and cold relationship that works so very well.
If you have not read these books yet then here they are in order of publication.
