5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish and superb quality, 20 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been searching for a new coffee maker for ages and I'm delighted with this one!

It's solidly made and stylish, pours well and is stable on the hob. It's easy to fill, clean and use and makes lovely coffee. Expensive but worth the extra cost for the superb build quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars As warm and satisfying as a glass of Christmas Punch!, 21 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The synopsis and other review pretty much covers the set up so I won't repeat it again, but I loved this touching and very satisfying Christmas version of a 'Beauty and the Beast' romance. I especially loved the craggy, awkward hero, Rafe,and seeing him get the Christmas he always dreamed of. *Happy sigh*

Note: I received an ARC of this book for free. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I subsequently purchased my own copy of this book.


Aroma Home Body Wrap -  Microwaveable Wheat & Lavender Leaf - Lavender
Aroma Home Body Wrap - Microwaveable Wheat & Lavender Leaf - Lavender
Price: £9.79

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value heat wrap, 16 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This wrap is good value and well made. I use it around my shoulders when I have a migraine and find it soothing. A word of caution though, the lavender smell is *very* strong once heated so as mentioned by another reviewer I use it wrapped in tea towel. I'm assuming this will reduce with use though. It's easy and quick to heat in a microwave and arrived promptly. Would recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value, 3 April 2013

This is a very reasonably priced, attractive cover. The 'stand' feature is not as strong as it could be, and it remains to be seen how well it withstands general wear and tear, but overall a good product at a great price. Would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Fascinating Mr Foote, 27 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a truly absorbing read. Samuel Foote - one-legged comedy superstar of Georgian theatre, best-selling crime author, transvestite, friend of Garrick and Dr Johnson, jailbird and a man involved in two scandalous trials that so rocked Georgian society they kept the Declaration of Independence from the front pages - is brought brilliantly to life in this biography.

It's not a quick read but one to be savoured, packed with meticulous research and fascinating descriptions of the high and low life of eighteenth century London. It's amusing, entertaining and occasionally shocking too; Samuel Foote is arguably the greatest lost figure of the Georgian age and an extraordinary character who went from celebrity to persona non grata in the space of a year. The story of The Fascinating Mr Foote is not to be missed & is highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lighthearted and fun read, 23 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was so pleased to see The Miser of Mayfair had been re-issued. It and other Regencies were originally published in the 1980s under MC Beaton's alternative pen name of Marion Chesney. They were extremely hard to find and expensive, but now several of her Regency series are available again in paperback and kindle editions, with fabulous new covers.

The Miser of Mayfair is a fun, easy read, the first in a series featuring the various tenants of a London townhouse, No. 67 Clarges Street. No. 67 is in Mayfair and comes complete with staff, but it has a reputation for being unlucky. Consequently it remains vacant year after year and the servants are struggling to survive.

The staff hope the arrival of Mr Roderick Sinclair and his lovely ward Fiona at No 67 may change their fortunes, but then it appears Mr Sinclair is a miser and Fiona is a beautiful airhead. Or are they?

Great light reading with a fabulous cast of characters, especially Rainbird the butler. Plenty of gentle humour and the plot rattles along nicely. The romantic elements are glossed over somewhat but MC Beaton is such an entertaining storyteller, you barely miss them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful sweet contemporary romance, 11 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Radio Gaga (Kindle Edition)
This full length novel from author Nell Dixon is a delightful and very enjoyable read.

The dynamics of the radio station setting were great, the humour well-observed and the story populated with entertaining characters and comical situations. The radio presenter/researcher heroine Chloe is funny, warm, outgoing and just a tad clumsy at times which makes her a perfect match for Ben, an emotionally-scarred ex-military hero who is looking for a quiet life but finds the opposite almost from the moment he meets Chloe.

There are lots of comical moments, but the scene where Chloe is set to do a charity abseil from the castle battlements is hilarious! And I laughed at this line: "My mother was always firmly convinced that she knew everyone. The theory on six degrees of separation could have been written especially for her." OK, so this is exactly what my mum is like and probably a lot of other people's too!!

A mystery element is included (Chloe has a stalker which is mentioned in the description so not a spoiler) which is well-worked to maintain suspense.

If you enjoy sweet, funny contemporary romance with 'real' characters in entertaining situations, then Radio Gaga fits the bill perfectly. A fabulous,fun read!

A really excellent thermal base layer that is comfortable, functional, lightweight and stylish. A bit expensive compared to some others on the market but well worth the additional cost.
