RE: With the Headmaster's Approval: WIN a PAPERBACK copy

Wondering how many of the Goodreads readers listed as 'to read' actually do go on to read the book if they don't win.

Giveaway ends on 12th April.

I loved your Hippo drabble today, Jan. It brought my Africa days back.

Thanks. When were you in Africa - and where? Did you live in Zim? Today has been horribly hot and humid - typical Durban summer. Sad Hoping for some cooling rain.

Not Zim - Zam. Travelled into Zim and SA. Also Botswana for the elephants. Loved Durban.

Another great drabble today, Jan.

Thanks re drabble. Glad you liked Durban. I was going to send a link to the webcams, but they don't seem to be working Rolleyes.
Have you read The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency series by Alexander McCall Smith? It's set in Botswana. I love the stories.

I've recently started those, Jan, as audiobooks which I listen to whole running. I've consumed the first two so far, and loved them! Plenty more to go, too. Smile

With the headmaster's approval (a feel good story of secrets, scandals and second chances)

Lust shouts. Love whispers. Only the heart knows the difference.

When 40-year-old former US navy officer Adam Wild takes up the position of head teacher at St Mary’s Academy for Girls in England, he knows he’ll have his work cut out for him. But what he doesn’t realise is that his greatest challenge will be in managing the all-female staff.
