Apologies - the books have been a bit late going out so we will give winners a bit longer to read and add questions and comments to this thread. They should arrive in the next couple of days so if you get one don't forget to add your thoughts here as soon as you have read it.

More info on the book here

Oh well still in with a chance then!

chelseababy Tue 16-Aug-16 06:36:07

Anyone received one yet?

Greenfinch Tue 16-Aug-16 06:42:00

No. Still living in hope!

I'm assured they are on their way. Don't forget, if you do receive one, make sure you leave your comments and questions for Dinah on this thread as soon as you've read it. Obviously we will allow a couple of extra weeks so if you can add by mid September rather than the end of August that's fine.

Dare I ask whether anyone's received their copy yet?

Waveney Sat 20-Aug-16 17:06:09

I was wondering that too!

Doesn't look like we are going to get these methinks! Maybe the publisher's post clerk is on holiday?

Jane10 Tue 23-Aug-16 13:32:15

I didn't like the book anyway. I very rarely give up on a book but I did with this one.

My copy arrived this morning.Hurray! Thank you very much. I shall endeavour to read it as soon as I can and post a review.

Maggiemaybe Sat 27-Aug-16 13:57:37

Oh! There's hope yet then smile

Gagagran Tue 30-Aug-16 12:31:06

Came in from work hoping there might be a book on the doormat.......but no such luck! Doesn't look like many have been received so far.

I must say the books have been very poor these last few months, I have always been an avid reader but have had to make an effort with the choices 😔

Just received my copy this morning. I'll read it as soon as possible.. Thanks.

Just received my copy this morning, perfect timing, as just finished a book. Thanks for my copy x

ecci53 Wed 31-Aug-16 13:19:51

Finally received my copy today, just in time for the end of August!!

chelseababy Wed 31-Aug-16 13:21:02

Mine was waiting over the side gate for me! Couldn't believe the size of the packaging! No wonder it wouldn't go through letter box. It's still August.....just!

Roxannediane Wed 31-Aug-16 15:48:58

Just had mine delivered.... Thank you so much gransnet - can't wait to go to bed tonight and start reading.... !

cde58 Wed 31-Aug-16 16:02:16

Just received my copy - many thanks. As somebody else said - ridiculous sized packaging for a fairly small book. Have another book to finish, a house move to undertake and new grandchild due any day - but when all that's sorted I'll start the book! Fortuitous as my son is working for a year in Vietnam so hoping to visit in next few months.

Grannie48 Wed 31-Aug-16 18:07:54

Many thanks for my copy, which came today. Will read it as soon as I've finished the book I am reading.

Claudiaclaws Wed 31-Aug-16 19:42:04

I have already read this. I really enjoyed it. I wish I was just about to start reading it again.

Maggiemaybe Wed 31-Aug-16 21:52:28

Mine was sitting on my front doorstep when I got home smile Many thanks, I'm looking forward to starting it.

cornergran Wed 31-Aug-16 23:07:02

Mine came today thank you. Will read as soon as the current book is finished.

halfgran Wed 31-Aug-16 23:46:37

My copy also arrived today thank you, will have to wait a few days until my company has left to start reading it.
