    I’m reading the series for the second time. I’m sitting here wiping the tears from my eyes as I finish the short story, The Great St Mary’s Day Out. My husband thinks I’m crazy because I suddenly burst out laughing every few minutes. The dialogue and situations are hilarious. I have thoroughly enjoyed the whole series, but this has to be my favorite. However you come up with these plots and dialogue, Ms Taylor, please keep them coming. Your talent is amazing. Thank you!

    I have read the entire series time and time again. The writing style of this lady compares with my hero Terry patches long may she take inspiration from our shared hero and long may continue to write these stories

    Romping through these has cheered my winter, thought nothing could fill the space of Terry Pratchett. Thank you

  • Dawn
    A Perfect Storm is the last story in The Long and the Short of It
