"Really enjoyed this contemporary novel. Likeable and relatable characters tell the story of a blended family and explore the impact and the collateral damage that post-natal depression can bring. The story has a great pace and is at times a page turner."
"I started reading Gold Plated at
7 am this morning and finished it late this evening. First book I’ve read from beginning to end in a single day in quite some time. I simply had to devour it!!! Thank you for an exquisitely entertaining read! A beautiful treatment of love, betrayal, and resolve where self-love triumphs ultimately."
"This is a story of family, war, hope, despair and love. It has been written in such a way as to keep me avidly turning the pages as I was transported into Mary’s life. A book that I would highly recommend to readers who enjoy historical, family saga, WWII setting and general fiction."

"You don’t have to be a fan of Barbara Pym or Monica Dickens to love this novel – though the blurb on the back helpfully reminds you that it is written in the tradition of these two great English novelists."
“A beautiful story about art, true love, loss and regret – Connectedness is an absolutely engrossing story and one that I highly recommend!”
Ellen Devonport, Bibliophile Book Club
"A cleverly crafted romantic mystery tale with well rounded characters, telling of youth, old age, life, death and several murky ingredients in between. It kept me on tenterhooks right to the end."
"Murderously good fun"
"Melinda Field's magic lies beyond her ability to birth full, deep characters to whom you are drawn so willingly...she presents to the reader crucial lessons buried ever-so-gently in the subtle ironies of life."
