On Hampstead Heath is a deliciously romantic comedy of misunderstandings and misbehaviour - I loved it
Clare Chambers, author of SMALL PLEASURES
With On Hampstead Heath, Marika Cobbold has rebooted the Hampstead Novel for the 21st century. A delightful novel
Amanda Craig
A heart-warming and at times hilarious tale about truth and honesty in this treacherous age of social media
Josie Lloyd
A brilliant and brave take on fake news and its fallout
Elizabeth Buchan
Clever and funny with a splinter of melancholy running through it. It's a superb read
Frances Quinn, author of THE SMALLEST MAN
Few writers balance darkness and light as well as Cobbold
Sarah Hughes, i paper
On Hampstead Heath was so refreshing and unexpectedly needed, like feeling the sun on your face in winter. Funny, astute, and aching in all the right ways, I was utterly charmed.
Tor Udall, author of A THOUSAND PAPER BIRDS
Marika Cobbold's look on life is unique
Katie Fforde
On Hampstead Heath is exactly what is needed at this time. A romantic story tempered with a sharp wit and written with knowledge and love of place in which it's set
Adèle Geras
An absolute little gem of a book, On Hampstead Heath is entertaining, thought-provoking and extremely witty
Michelle Ryles, The Book Magnet
A fabulous read. It's wise and perceptive, honest and witty
Short Book and Scribes
Brilliant and funny and darkly surprising
Emma Stonex
