  1. Clever lady!
    How goes the family?
    I think we are leaving Canterbury and moving back to kerikeri but I’ll let you know when things are confirmed….
    Much love


  2. I just finished Pieces Of You… WOW such a moving book. I was feeling every emotion that the characters were, it was amazing. The book was incredible and I would recommend it to anyone!


  3. I finished pieces of you – such a good book I honestly deeply love the characters. Why did Cory have to die? I guess all good things have to come to an end. I’m dying to read you next book, it’s too long.


  4. Hi Eileen.
    I have just finished reading ‘Pieces of You’ and thoroughly enjoyed it. As a mature and avid reader, I felt you captured the spirit of the youth of today. I found the characters well developed, and the book had a nice pace of intrigue about it. Look forward to your next book.


  5. I’m a young romantic and love love love your two books pieces of you and catch me when you fall 💘 they are both amazing and sad. I can’t wait for your next book.

    Regards, rory
