Thankful for a Four Beach Umbrella Review

Posted on: October 12, 2013



Amanda in England-The Missing Novel was reviewed at Travel Novels today and given a four beach umbrella rating. I am delighted with the rating and the review. It made my day!!

Here is some of what was said:

This travel book is full of adventures and mystery that will be easy for any young mind to assess and evaluate. What I love about this book is the specific descriptions of the famous landmarks in England and how these are worked out in the story to help Amanda and Leah solve the mystery of the missing vintage novel.

This travel novel is indeed worth reading because it offers extraordinary descriptions of the famous landmarks in England coming from a young traveller’s point of view. I give this travel book a rating of four beach umbrellas for the innocent way the country was described and all the values that the author has imparted to her readers through Amanda. She really did a great job of bringing out the young traveler in me and, I’m sure, to all her readers as well.

Wishing everyone in Canada a Happy Thanksgiving!  We have so much to be thankful for. I am thankful for my family, friends, health, and for this awesome review.

I will be spending time with my wonderful daughter this weekend. There will be pictures. What are your plans?

Congratulations on such a good review — I agree, your descriptions make the reader feel as though they’re right there in London with Amanda. I don’t know if I’d be brave enough to go on the London Eye, but the other experiences Amanda has are fascinating. Hmmm… perhaps it’s time I re-read that book!

Have a very happy Thanksgiving! Mine will be very low-key, but I’ll post a gratitude post on Monday, and will do some sort of celebratory meal.

Thanks so much Beth. I look forward to your gratitude post. Have a peaceful Thanksgiving!

Wonderful review on your book, Darlene. Congrats and hope you are enjoying a relaxing Thanksgiving weekend. All the best.

Thanks so much. Have a wonderful weekend your self. Are you back from your travels?

Congratulations and well done! I live in England and thought you did a great job with your descriptions.

That means so much to me coming from a book lover and an English resident. Thanks!

Wow, the review from Travel Novel should make your week! What a great way to get your book promoted as a great read for teens traveling. Congratulations and have a nice Thanksgiving!

I have to say it will probably make my year. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving as well Patricia.
