Just wanted to say that I absolutely loved Love Lies Bleeding - I
think it's your best book yet!!! As soon as I read the first page I
couldn't stop!! It was fab to meet all the characters again and I was
gripped by the story - you kept me guessing till the end!! It would
make a great film, it was brilliant book, I loved it - can’t wait for
You write such marvellous novels, I love reading them, I am
transported to another world. Half way through Love Lies Bleeding, the
characters and the village come alive for me, I am not aware of
anything around me. Your writing gives such joy, thank-you.
really love your work and have just finished Love Lies Bleeding. It is
just fabulous - fun, sad and hopeful. What more could a person want,
other than the next novel please?! All best wishes for continued
got your book today and have spent most of the afternoon reading it
(while pretending to be working!)
I think it's brilliant - the imagery and smells are wonderfully
portrayed, I can practically feel the sun and the coolness of the
water. It's easy to sympathise with all the characters. Sorry for
going on like this, but I never really get to talk about how much I
enjoy a book to anyone.
loved Love Lies Bleeding, I really did! I love the way all the old
favourites were included so we got to see how their endings worked
out...as normal real life with plenty of ups and downs. Met and
exceeded my expectations! I will be keeping fingers crossed there will
be more from not only yourself but the inestimable Ms Pixie Pirelli!
Will be keeping an eye out!
LOVED IT!! Was totally enthralled!! Am hooked now! Is SUCH a great
read - very well developed characters and all kinds of stories and
Just had to write and say a huge THANK YOU for this book. It has got
to be the best book I've read in a long time!! I really hope with
every bone on my body that you don't stop writing it would be a
monumental waste of talent. Keep "Living Your Dream" - and ours!!!!
absolutely loved Love Lies Bleeding! It went everywhere with me for a
few days, in the car, to bed.........you name it! Congrats on another
my God, I loved this book so much; I really, honestly have to tell you
that Love Lies Bleeding is THE best thing I've read in ages and I've
been telling everyone you should be on Richard and Judy talking about
Yahoo, yippi, congratulation for your wonderful novel which again is
irresistible. I have 'devoured' Love Lies Bleeding and feel as if I
was living in your novel. Can't be topped. Though I'm not a native
speaker I could understand every emotional layer ...You are writing
from the heart. Your book is so fantastic... I'm speechless. Thanks
again from your 'addicted' reader for another heavenly novel!
Just finished Love Lies Bleeding (gorgeous cover!) - please tell me
you're writing a follow up, I have to know that (censored by Kate)
live happily ever after!!
just wanted to drop a quick line saying that I finished the final
chapters of Love Lies Bleeding on Friday and I just loved it, it was
a beautiful read.
Absolutely LOVE your books, keep up the good work as I almost died
between the times since the previous book and Love Lies Bleeding!
The phrases, 'page-turner', 'un-put-downable' etc. are hackneyed. But
they SO apply to Love Lies Bleeding. I really have to go out now and
buy the rest of your catalogue. Congratulations.
finished Love Lies Bleeding at 11.30 last night. My eyes feel like I
have been through a dust storm and I have to go to work but it was
worth it! I loved it! My criteria for a good book is when I can't
put it down, can't wait to finish it but don't want to finish and feel
a sense of loss when I do finish it. LLB filled all the criteria.
Thank you so much.
Kate, I finally got to read Love Lies Bleeding. I loved it, as I have
loved all of your books! Can't wait for more!!!
It's nearly 12.30pm. I am KNACKERED I should be in bed. But I'm not.
Why not? Because I can't leave Bianca's garden, that's why not!!
Especially not now I've just found out that..... (censored by Kate.)
Honestly, woman, there are more strands in this book than in a ball of
extra chunky mohair - the kind that knits up on size 10s!!
I'm in love with all your brilliant novels which I have read three
times each. Now I see you have written a new fantastic novel - Love
Lies Bleeding - in which you combine some of your adorable
characters. I'm so glad you fulfilled my secret wishes. You should be
given a kind of Nobel Prize for sophisticated escapist literature! You
are my 'dream-novelist'; some of the reasons are your humour,
convincingly developed characters, well-constructed plots and special
style. As I can see in your fan mail all your readers feel the same
about your talent! Congratulations from a German reader.
Not getting much housework done as I can't put Love Lies Bleeding
down, it's simply fantastic. Congratulations on writing yet another
Have just finished reading Love Lies Bleeding, Brilliant! Don't think i
have ever read a book so fast, your books are impossible to put down!
I was v glad to see good old Deirdre and Rory fully in the book and
thought it was very clever how…
(censored by Kate).
Thank you for the great escape!
Just wanted to say congratulations on another great book! I started
reading it yesterday morning and finished last night - couldn't wait!
I needed to know how it ended. I loved it, and loved catching up with
all the old characters
Best of Luck with the next one.
LOVE YOU AND LOVE YOUR BOOKS!! Honestly, I have only recently been
'turned on' to you and LOVED Sex, Lies & Fairytales!! I am on page
197 of Love Lies Bleeding and I LOVE IT!!! I am also anxious to
purchase the rest of your books. It's been so long since I have found
an author that can compare with Marian Keyes. I'm so glad I found
my god I have just finished the first 25 chapters of Love, Lies,
Bleeding and I have never been so close to tears..... I'm praying that

have just finished reading Love Lies Bleeding and it has inspired me
to re-read all your other books. You are a fantastic story teller.

Just finished reading Love Lies Bleeding, I love, love, loved it! I
read it within a week - couldn't put it down! I'm now reading all your
books from the beginning I don't think there has been a year gone by
that I haven't re-read one of your books, I don't think I could get
through a year without reading one.

Have just finished Love Lies Bleeding and have started to read all
your books again from the start. I have also discovered Living the
Dream as an audio book and now searching for the others...
