The author is obviously a great observer of people and is able to bring her characters to life apparently without trying. They just appear and they’re interesting and you know them and you want to know more. They meet with, socialise with, argue with and care for their neighbours, and gradually you see deeper into their psyche and their souls.
It is not all harmony, sweetness and light in this community as we are led, gradually, to learn. It is a book of beautifully observed human interaction. At the end I was left feeling positive and joyful, but with a tear in my eye at the sometime unfairness of life.
I am glad I read this book.

"Colouring In" is a beautifully crafted tapestry of daily life in The Harlequin Triangle. As various (and varied!) characters are introduced and the tale unfolds, the author draws us deeper into their world. They gossip, argue, cry, laugh and, for the most part, look out for each other in much the same way as they tend the communal garden and enjoy the vista of their colourfully decorated properties around the triangle.
This is not a 'high octane, high body count' novel - although there is a body - but rather a delightful observation of human beings, accepting their differences and sharing sorrows and triumphs. Skilfully written, well-rounded characters and a hint of mystery. Perfect!

She made me read it so many times, I became quite unwell.
Yes, it's a book.

Such characters, such illustrative descriptions - I could not wait to turn each page. A novice writer such as myself would do well to look to Heathcote as a precedent to which one should aspire.
