    I discovered Jodi Taylor’s St Mary when Audible had the first 4 or 5 books for free. I was going through cancer, and it was so nice to have something to listen to as I just laid around and recovered. I adore books, even 6 years (remission/cancer free!!!), I love re-listening to all her books, and not just St. Mary’s! I look forward to all the new books that are to come out next year! AND of course the Christmas books, for, well, Christmas! Thank you and your wonderful brain and imagination, Ms. Taylor!! <3

    It was a long search to find a new author to read after the last Terry Pratchett books were released. Red a lot of other fantasy/time travel(Sry Dr Bairstow) books but was never satisfied. Jodie did just that. Great characters and fire trucking funny.

  • Lynsey

    Not my usual read but I am utterly addicted, cannot put them down and currently devouring them one by one

  • Teresa Sutcliffe

    Batch bought the first 10 from E-bay. Blitz reading them at the moment. As a linguist/ historian I find them absorbing funny and enjoyably detailed. Thank you Jodi Taylor

  • Vanessa Lawson

    I am just waiting for the next book to come out in either the St Mary’s or the Tume Police series.
    I didn’t think I would like anything to do with the Time Police but yet again they are very funny,at times poignant and literally take me out of this world.
    Reading them got me through a health scare last year and I was very grateful.
    Please just keep writing !,
