Product Description

Book Description

Glamour, ambition, love and sex. It's all here in the page-turning bestsellers by Louise Bagshawe

From the Author

Tall Poppies is about love, hate and triumph
I guess I wanted to throw two of the most different people together... one review called this 'Dallas meets the Chalet School' and I was well chuffed. Look, a Welsh aristocrat meets a poor Jewish girl from Brooklyn... and absolutely hates her. This one`s about business, Olympic medals, falling for the wrong men and the right men and triumphing over everything... including yourself. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
I enjoyed this book, and by the end I couldn't put it down. The enjoyment was slightly marred for me by the inconsistencies regarding Wales and the Welsh language. Towards the end, Elizabeth travels back to Wales along the M4 - fine if you're going to South Wales - but her closest town was Bangor!! The snippets of Welsh were rather strange too - a Bangor boy with a South Wales accent - I don't think so! And she suddenly says 'iechyd da' in the middle of a sentence. I almost expected her to put on her national costume. So yes, a good read - but check out your Welsh facts next time please.

Format: Paperback
I am only 16 years old and have never really been introduced to an 'easy read'. I have read from authors such as Barbara Kingsolver and Jane Austin! But never really attempted such a sexy, fun, ambitious girly genre! I loved it! I could not put it down and feel in love with the audacity of both characters. My all time dream is to become a journalist, and perhaps even a novelist one day, and it is this hope of a successful and independant future that keeps me going. Now Bagshawe is my shrink, hahaha, and she deserves a lot of praise for an wonderful composition! I was shocked the comment that some sexual reference may offend adult readers. God, it is sex for crying out loud. Something everyone thinks about. I thought it was portrayed as desirable and real. Nina Roth and Elizabeth Savage are two girls every teen aspires to be. I found their hidden insecurities touching and something every girl can relate to. Well done! I plan to buy many more of Bagshawes books.

I enjoyed this story,it was different and it was clearly very well researched and put together. Personally i found all the skiing jargon a bit of a bore but thats just my personal opinion not being very interested in sport but i liked the character of Elizabeth. I loved the main baddy character the Lord .. he was great and i enjoyed the story of Nina and how she came from nothing to a successful business woman. It was just the skiing stuff that spoiled it for me and when the author went into detail about that i had to skim over it, too much if you're not particularly interested in skiing technicalities!!!

This is the first of Louise Bagshawes books I read, and I'm now hooked I have all her books and I've pre-ordered the latest addition. I recommend tall poppies for anyone who needs a lift, a good well rounded, funny, gripping read. I loved it!

By A Customer on 18 Sept. 2000
Format: Paperback
I read this and I'm 13. My classmates were reading over my shoulder, so enthralled at Nina and Elizabeths sex lives that they couldn't wait until I'de finished to borrow it. Although it is a very graphical book, it is not so that you are cringing, it just takes you to the moment. A cleverly wovern storyline about pure revenge and determination you come out the other end of the book with a whole new range of sexually dicriptive insults!

I purchased this bicycle on Amazon and unfortunately it wasn't what I was looking for. I printed off the return labels and worried myself how I would return the large item. Fortunately, I spoke with the customer services and spoke with a lady, called Shauna-Kay, who could not have been more helpful and personally arranged for a collection on a day that suited me and talked me through exactly what I needed to do. Very satisfied customer!

I liked this book. It goes with a swing, and tells a dramatic and pacey tale of high business and treachery. Not a great literary work, but perfect for a holiday read.
The story is about Nina and Elizabeth, the mistress and daughter respectively of Tony Savage. In turn dominated by him, they reject him and set up their own company.
