CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:
I've already read this one and enjoyed it, I will find this copy a new reader as soon as I can.
The second story about Georgina was mildly amusing but I didn't believe that her brusque manner would have been so popular with hotel guests. I certainly wouldn't want her in charge of anywhere I was intending to stay!
The 3rd story, Fabrizia, was a bit boring and predictable and reminded me again why I'm not fond of short stories.
Namaqualand Daisies I found hard to fathom and the last and longest story was a condensed version of La's Orchestra Saves the World which I've read recently so I didn't read that one.
I don't think I would bother to read any further short story anthologies by this author but I'm very keen to read any more detective agency ones that I haven't come across so far."
Released today at my local Boots chemists store on a bookshelf which raises money for a cancer charity.

I already have books travelling in many countries around the world-a list can be found on my bookcrossing profile.
When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of. Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition
to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option.
