Great read

This book was captivating from the first page to the last. I didn't see the tv series but having read this book would love to watch it. I only hope there is another book as there are a number of story lines that need concluding.

Highly Recommend

This was so good, I loved the TV series and was so annoyed when it was cancelled, the book took me straight back there and every scene played out in my head - I hope there will be more
