Alison’s Powells Books Blog post “The Singing Author”

Reviewed with Q&A by Readaholic Blog
“I loved following along and sharing Pippa’s life. She is hilarious and real,
definitely someone I would love to be friends with.”

Paige Crutcher, Review
“Larkin created a poignant world, drawing inspiration from her own life. Pippa enchants, corals and surprises at every turn. Larkin has created characters so authentic, you’ll be inclined to check over your shoulder in assurance they aren’t reading you their story aloud.”

Clare Swindlehurst, Blue Archipelago Review
“This book is funny, endearing, romantic, heart wrenching and heart warming, and I dare you not to devour it in as few a sittings as possible. It’s the perfect book for a Sunday afternoon curled up by the fire with your cat, and one day I hope to see it on the big screen as I think it would make a fantastic movie.” Read an interview with Alison on Blue Archipelago.
