  1. And Ryan was also on a mission. To find out if Sister Katerina was still at the airport chapel. After they had checked in and on the way to the business class lounge they stopped at the airport chapel and went in. A nun was siting in one of the pews near the front and Ryan approached her, coughing softly to attract her attention. She stood up and walked towards them. "Good afternoon, Sister. I was wondering if Sister Katerina was here? I would very much like to see her" . "Good day to you gentlemen. Sister Katerina is here in the airport somewhere. Let me contact her and get her to
  2. @Littlelovestories, I really hope you resolve this crisis quickly, because my heart and emotions will not cope with it being drawn out. While Ryan has his issues, quite honestly I sometimes think Jasper is the one who needs more help. I'm so angry right now at the way he treats and speaks to Ryan. I feel it almost borders on abuse. Jasper is being incredibly selfish and self-absorbed. He has given absolutely no thought to the fact that Ryan is grieving too. And trying to be there for the man he loves as well. Only to be rejected and yelled at. AFAIAC Jasper needs a swift kick in the bu

    Margaret has a problem we don't seem to know about yet, I think, apart from her obvious volatile temper. My heart goes out to Jason. He's been through so much already and still having to live with his muteness. Even the way Margaret was driving. Does she know that Jason is terrified or is she just being thoughtless?
  4. Fully agree Chris. True, he's lost his best friend and is grieving, but a lot of my sympathy lies with Ryan. He has been supporting Jasper as best as he knows how to help him through the crisis and all he gets is a kick in the teeth. Quite honestly, Jasper is just being a self-centred dick who needs to get a grip and pull himself together. He is not the only one who has lost someone they love. I just hope he does nothing stupid that would put his and Ryan's relationship in jeopardy. Hang in there Ryan!!

    Really pleased that you did some research. I commented in an earlier post that I had considered setting 'Never walk alone' in the Mediterranean or the Caribbean, both of which I am quite familiar with. Obviously, I ultimately made the decision to set it right here at home in the hope that it would pique the readers interest. So thank you for your interest.

    Thank you for the great encouragement and compliments. I guess when one is writing about a subject (subjects) you are really passionate about, it comes through on the page. As I explained elsewhere, the errors were occurring when I uploaded the chapter onto the site. What had been edited several times before uploading was not what I found when I read through it on the site. So I would have to go back and re-edit again. And quite honestly, not everything was picked up. I think I have the system sorted out now. At least I hope so. Happy reading!

    A green salad ain't a salad without them. Thanks for the comment and for all your previous , and hopefully future, reactions.
  10. Andrew smiled, remembering that first time they had brought 'Belle Catherine ' home. That had been almost two years ago. They had sailed through the harbour mouth many times thereafter and much had happened in those two years, most good but some bad. The lodge was doing exceptionally well, with the new executive rooms and suites, and spa on the property, being just the boost that it needed to really prosper. The construction phase had indeed proved to be disruptive, with a resulting drop off in business - that winter had been particularly quiet - which had Andrew and Paul slightly co
  11. Shocked and saddened by your news. I pray medical science can help you. I have read all your books and have thoroughly enjoyed each one. I echo all the sentiments above. Thank you for keeping us advised.

    I don't know if it is the case with all authors, but I do write with pictures in my mind, visualising each chapter.

    Thank you. You have no idea the kick I get from reading comments like yours. As I said earlier, I have to pinch myself to make sue it's actually happening.

    Thank you Terry. Have you actually tried any of the dishes I wrote about? Pickled fish is traditionally prepared here in SA for Easter. It's great prepared 2 or even 3 days before eating to allow for all the flavours to develop. Try it. I promise you will not be disappointed.

    Thanks again for reading my story Chris. And for your comments to every chapter. I still have to pinch myself to ensure it'snot a dream and that I actually have folks reading something I have written. Absolutely boggles my mind.

    Thank you. It was my pleasure.
  24. The summer season proved to be a very lucrative one for all of the Devlin-Major interests. Both lodges were running at occupancies of between 90% and 95%, and Belle Catherine was averaging three charters every two weeks, which Andrew was very happy with. All the guests were very happy and the only concern was several comments from guests at both lodges over the festive season being disturbed by persons unknown requesting to complete surveys. Andrew initially thought it might have been staff members being a bit over zealous in getting guests to complete the normal questionaire which all guest
