“Once again Pauline's characters are real and believable,
her descriptive writing gets better and better with each book. Although you
shouldn't really warm to Bertie you can't help liking him when his vulnerable
side shows through. The storyline is not one that is tackled often and although
set in the 1960s it could just as easily be the present day.
I would recommend this book, it's thought provoking (do we
really always know our partners as well as we think?) and at the same time an
easy and comfortable read - a bit like pulling on a favourite jumper and
relaxing (with a good story of course). In fact, all of Pauline's books are to
be recommended and as each one is completely different you will enjoy a variety
of locations and characters.”
last the sun is shining on our little pebble in the ocean after two weeks of
torrential rain and high winds. And as if that was not enough to brighten my day, I saw this lovely 4 star review for In the
Cold Light of Day on Amazon co uk.
you lovely reader for adding a review, which is very much appreciated, and also
thank you for downloading and reading my latest book.
Barclay weaves original, compelling stories and this one is no exception.
is not a run-of-the-mill character. Mature in age and with a gambling habit,
the plot centres around the gradual destruction of his marriage to Kitty, and
the intricate web of deceit which eventually destroys him. Or does it?
in London during the sixties, the novel has an authentic feel for those times
and Barclay digs deep into her characters; their motivations and emotions are
always clear, and understood.”
