    Hurrah for the creative dream team work of the author and all who work on the Audible version, especially the infinitely talented Zara Ramm, reader/performer who to me IS the voice of oyr beloved heroine Max aka Lucy.

    Just ‘found’ Jodi Taylor’ can’t believe I have spent so much time not knowing/reading her books. Laugh until I cry, hugely enjoy, brightens even the worst of days . Long may she continue to write.

  • Julie Doorne

    I I absolutely love all the books on this page, I have listened to the whole of each series at least 4 times. (Except the French ones). I would love another Frogmorton Farm story, but St Marys is still my favourite. The characters are so familiar to me I feel I know them like friends.
    Fantastic talent, thank you.

  • Nancy Boatwright

    I have listened to or read every book on this page and LOVE them all!! When will they become a television miniseries?!?! Thank you for sharing your talent

    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!
