Below are just a few of the reviews that readers have written after finishing the novel;
- .."it felt like a holiday by the seaside, I wanted to stay longer, to dine at la jazz, to walk in the bush, soak up the harbour...."
- "...It was hard to put it down when I should have been doing things, in fact I often succumbed to what I call the "Just one more chapter" syndrome, which often developed into several more chapters."
- "What a little gem this delightful book is. Originally
a stage production, Maureen O’Brien has transferred the story from stage to
page beautifully. The characters are engaging and relatable. You find yourself
reluctant to let go of the book as you are drawn to discover a little more of
the goings on at La Jazz."
- "...Above all Table Manners is a tale of people becoming themselves and understanding what they need to do for both themselves and for their friends. These are serious stories told with a humorous and light touch that will keep the reader enthralled to the end. An absolute delight, highly recommended."
