Many thanks Jonathan

I tried that - doesn't work for me. I can edit it above in this subject box, but that doesn't work either.

Subtly different genres, you might say. I'll be interested to know how they compare for him.

And thanks David.

And another - short, sweet, and very flattering:

Highly recommended, 28 July 2014

Peter Stacey - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Matchbox Memories - An Alzheimer's Comedy (Kindle Edition)
Excellent book. What an writer. This is the fourth book of his I have read and I think he is an outstanding author.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And, judging by the previous posts, I have an inkling who this could be. So many thanks.

The odd thing here is that this makes two reviews in a week for MM in the UK, but I've only sold one all month, and only one last month. This is by a huge margin my poorest selling book (hardly selling at all in the UK - strangely sells more on .com), but now has the most reviews.

RE: 5* review for Matchbox Memories

I would guess this is a measure of the impression it makes on those few who read it. Maybe the reviews will convince a few more to give it a go.
