I got two lovely reviews from Dear Author and Jessewave today – three actually since the Dear Author one is from Willaful and Sirius. I’m so happy!
Some particularly nice comments:
There are times of great tension and excitement, but Provoked mostly moves at a gentle pace, suiting its gently heroic subject; still, I was never less than thoroughly absorbed in it.
I thought the writing in this book was gorgeous – when I want to stop, reread, taste every word or almost every word.
I have to say that the sense of place was pitched just right. I used to live in Edinburgh—in fact for a time I lived on the same street where David lives (Blair Street)—so it was a delight to re-tread the wynds and closes of Old Town and the wide avenues of New Town in my imagination as I read this book. Anyone interested in this period will find something to enjoy in Provoked. I thoroughly recommend it and am very much looking forwards to Book 2.

It is an incredible relief for patients to eat the carbohydrates
they so crave in a way that gets their eating under control so they’re not thinking about food all the time.
While studies by NCCA and other organizations have shown it to be
effective for mild depression, its effects are considered to be limited, at best, for
those with severe depression.
