Being able to picture many of the places, as well as knowing how spectacular Bridgwater carnival is, brings an extra, nostalgic, bonus to this book for me. This aside, the Nick Dixon series never fails to please. Carnival Blues, like all the other books in the series keeps you totally invested in both characters and storylines. I managed to wait a few days before starting to read this latest instalment, but once I begun, I just couldn’t put it down. Now begins the wait for whatever comes next for Nick, Jane and Monty. It can’t come soon enough!
I find it hard to criticize as the book is well paced, keeps you engaged & the the background life of Nick & Jane is a great human element but not an over sentimental one.
I could read it in a day but force myself to stretch it out over a week as I know we will have to wait sometime for the next book.
Thanks again to Damien for a great book - please keep writing & quickly I want to know if it's a boy or a girl.
