Can’t win ’em all – and now I’ve lost my anonymity…

Maybe my plotting was too subtle… 4 star Amazon review yesterday

Top review from United Kingdom

4.0 out of 5 stars I would have liked to spend more time on Jigsaw Island with these interesting characters


I’d never heard of the author before but agreed to take part in the tour because I wanted something a little different. I’d love to visit Greece so the setting appealed to me, plus the fact the characters are from Scotland, my home tuft which was doubly appealing even though Annie also lives in London for a period of time. The structure of this short book takes a few chapters to get used to, a variation of stream-of-consciousness which I don’t always get on with but I soon settled into the rhythm. I would have struggled more with a longer book. The book is quirky, well written and entertaining. The book tackles a lot in such a short space of time including Annie’s struggles as a single parent of a bi-racial son. The last third of the book veers off in a direction I didn’t see coming and becomes a psychological thriller. To be honest, I thought the book was too short and the dramatic events the book closes with were not signposted well enough and too rushed.
