A Few 5* Reviews for Dogs ‘n’ Dracula

  • Armchair Travel Delight –  I love the writing style Ms Lambert has. It is almost as if you are sitting, enjoying coffee, while you listen to her vacation stories.
  • Inspirational and hilarious – I am completely hooked on Jackie’s tales… I had never thought about taking a caravan to Romania but we are eagerly planning our trip. Keep these books coming!
  • Another great read – This is a fantastic, fabulously written series, 100% recommended.
  • Romania is now very much in my sights – Brilliantly evokes the highs and lows of camping across Europe, whilst painting pictures of places unknown in such a vivid palette that they immediately become ‘must visit’ destinations.
  • Another lovely tail – Once again, once started, difficult to put down.
