    Dear, dear Susan,

    I just finished A Fine Romance. Oh, it was more than wonderful. I loved your descriptions of everything and it made me feel like I was right there with you. Yes, I loved the fairy lights and could almost feel the love of your friends who served you breakfast in bed. We are planning to go to England next spring and now I just can’t wait!! I will pack my raincoat and wellies for sure!!
    I just hope everyone who reads your book loves it as much as I do.
