    Thanks to Shelleyrae for organising this event. Thanks to everyone who took part in the blog hop and left a comment on my author page. Unfortunately the blog hop coincided with our internet going down for 6 days. Hence the slow reply. However back in contact now and I’ve had a great time looking at the other blogs. Happy Reading.
