But more than that, Gabriella by Alan Hardy is fun . . . really fun. It’s a great read; this is comedy romance with a brain. Witty, brash and playful, we get to watch as a game within a game is played out among the classes and the coy cat and mouse of Jim and Gabriella all with the backdrop of cricket. Written by a skilled storyteller, this book is fast and easy and not one you’ll be able to easily put down. I’m looking forward to reading lots more from Alan Hardy. 5-stars – highly recommended!
