BOOK Review | Locally Based Story You're just a Picture on My Wall A Romantic Romp set at a Private Girls' School in Mill Hill, London, UK

I found out about Jude Haste via our Mill Hill Broadway twitter account. A local author with a book featuring a fictional school in our area. So I thought I would read it and let everyone know about it.

INTRODUCING JUDE HASTE AUTHOR Born in London, brought up in Mill Hill, in the UK. Once upon a time I was Head of Sociology and a Head of Year at Preston Manor High School in Wembley UK, it was great working there. I hold a PGCE in English with Media.

The book timer said that it takes 42 minutes to read and it comprises of 5 chapters. Therefore, it is not a time consuming or long read.

I now write zany comedies with a dash of romance, some of which I hope raise awareness of bullying and work related stress. Stop Workplace Bullying, don't remain silent. Value and look after your mental health. An anti-bullying advocate.

I soon got into the story. The main character was a teacher and the detail and light touch that Jude brings to her portrayal of school life is very realistic and probably reflects her years in the profession.

Follow me on twitter @judehaste_write and I am on facebook.

Buying a book for my phone Kindle App on Amazon meant that as soon as clicked “buy” my book downloaded and I was ready to read in seconds. The ease of the internet !

It is funny, sweet and many of the situations are very real. It is also interesting living in Mill Hill and trying to recognise the places that are mentioned. There are several and I wont spoil the book by revealing any here. The story arc is really good. You really know and care about the main characters by the end. It is, at its heart, a very well writen story. I really enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading more of Jude’s writing. If you have a spare hour in December then buying this book and reading it over the festive period will give you a chance to smile and enjoy a shortish read with a real local flavour. An antedote to the madness over the period. I Totally recommend the book and hope that Jude writes more featuring Mill Hill as some of the settings. Visit Jude on Amazon for more books.
