Praise for Sue Moorcroft:

‘I love all of Sue Moorcroft’s books!’ – Katie Fforde

‘Sue Moorcroft shows herself yet again to be a master at drawing and exploring the different kinds of relationships… Each character is realistically and sympathetically portrayed so that their relationships too are wholly believable and in no way clichéd… Undoubtedly satisfying – when you finish it, you’ll probably realise there’s a smile on your face and you’re feeling nicely warm and fuzzy – it’s that kind of read.’ – Lucy Literati

‘THE CHRISTMAS PROMISE is much more than just another Christmas book that is likely to be doing the rounds this year. This is a story with so much depth and heart to it… yet there are surprises, and laughs along the way too… I was just engrossed in the book… I really do love Sue Moorcroft books, and this has reminded me exactly why.’ – Rachel’s Random Reads, Five Stars
