    I have same question is A Perfect Storm available as an audiobook? If so please tell me where

  • Gavin

    Just wondering why I can’t get “A Perfect Storm”. It’s not on Audible, and the Kindle version on Amazon says “Item Under Review” and I can’t buy it there either. Any thoughts?

  • Purple Heather

    Rereading the St Mary’s Chronicles again and I would like to say that Roman Holiday is badly placed in this list, in my opinion. I know it’s a stand alone story but after reading A Second Chance all I wanted to do was to read A Trail Through Time straight away as I didn’t want any deviation from the main story arc. No plot spoilers here but those two books really don’t warrant any short story between them.

  • Lee Thomas

    I just finished ‘no time like the past’ and immediately started ‘what could possibly go wrong’ and all of a sudden there is talk about 2 historians that have been missing for 10 years, Elspeth Grey and Tom Bashford and recently been saved. I’ve no knowledge of this happening. Have I missed a story out somewhere? Thanks

  • Pamella Moore

    Now that there could be Time Wars….do you have another book coming? I’m completely hooked!!!
