  1. Hello, Clare, Thanks for following my blog as well. I know I will enjoy reading your blog posts, old and new. I especially like the cleaning tips! I must also tell you that Billy Joel’s ‘Piano Man’ is in my top five favourite songs of all time 🙂

  2. Many congratulations on both items of book news – fantastic. I’m very much looking forwards to reading the latest novel… although I might have to use it as a treat in store for myself as in incentive to get some writing done first. I know it will be worth waiting for though. (The trailer’s terrific too!)

    1. Thanks so much, Chris – really nice of you to say so! I do hope you get the space you need to recuperate. I’ve got no excuse at all, but also need to push myself back into writing. Must knuckle down…! x

  4. Hi Natalie

    Thanks so much for visiting my website, and for your lovely comments about You Think You Know Me! It’s wonderful to hear that you enjoyed the book, and very kind of you to recommend it to your customers! It’s also lovely to hear from a reader in New Zealand. I have family in Christchurch and spent time there as a child. A Stranger’s House is only out in digital format at the moment, but I hope it might go into print later. I’ll announce it here, as and when I get any news!

    Thanks again – (you’ve really made my morning!)

  5. Dear Clare Chase ~
    For the first third of ‘A Stranger’s House’ – my first ever eBook! – I grew ever more uncomfortable until I was finding that I had to ration myself to a few pages at a time. It was so scary for this Creaky Oldie!! (You can tell that I read very little crime-fiction…) Eventually I decided to wait until I felt Strong Enough to continue.

    Whacked out by work in and around Cambridge, in front of the fire on Sunday evening, I got out the new iPad and tried again. I was totally hooked. Read until the fire died, read until 11:30 pm. Finished it. Loved it.

    What entranced me was the sense of veracity about Ruby and Nate’s voices, and their increasing awareness of the other, all of it counterpointed by the sense that each of them was supressing a complex past. What was not being told was as intriguing as what was being told – or hinted at. Only a hint of peppering of ‘Pride and Prejudice’ – but the same fires underneath.

    The nasty assemblage around them were equally convincing – and that student bedroom!!! There was just enough to see possible consequences to the vividly-sketched character flaws; I had just begun to suspect Whodunnit – but couldn’t quite have said why. Perfection can be as suspicious as imperfection…. Brilliant.

    One grows to enjoy the drama – and dramatic irony generated by – the twin narrators. It works. So, too, does the awareness of non-verbal communication [though there was more than one episode of eye-rolling, Ms Editor…]

    What turned it into the ideal Cambridge Autumn Read for me was the perspective on that complex city. It was with sheer relief that I came to the observations about the Cambridge contrasts and contradictions. I love your descriptions of the Common, colleges and the streets but it’s those lemony stings about the drug-dealers and complacent Consumers contrasting with the exquisite culture and education which hint at what the Cambridge Bubble is really like. I don’t always find Cambridge an easy place to be. You said that, out loud. It is not a truth universally acknowledged….

    I might have to skip the Scary Bits – but I’ll be uploading your next book soon….

    Thank you.

    If I see Santa hauling pots of marmalade across our village, I’ll know which way he’s heading….
