Rachael Featherstone was born and raised in Woodford. After reading Mathematics at New College, Oxford university, Rachael went to work in research. When Rachael's mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2012, Rachael decided to take a chance, quit her job, and fulfil a life time ambition to write a novel. She went back to university and completed a Masters in English Literature and had several short stories published. Rachael now lives in Hampshire with her Husband, Tim. Puzzle Girl is Rachael's debut novel.
A lovely, fresh, and entertaining feel-good debut. Cassy is determined to shoot up the career ladder, she stumbles at her big chance, will she regain her footing and find love in the process? Cassy is such a likeable character, she may on occasion come close to hitting the self-destruct button as she obsesses over solving the mystery of the puzzle man, however her good heart shines through. Her friends and family add texture and energy to proceedings. Rachael Featherstone has created an almost diary like feel, including emails, lists, and puzzles, and she allows you to see beyond the immediate and obvious. I smiled, I cringed, and I cheered Cassy on her quest, ’Puzzle Girl’, engaging and fun, is a delight. ~ Liz Robinson
