A Time to Die (Mrs. Malory Mysteries series Book 18)
A Time to Die (Mrs. Malory Mysteries series Book 18)
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Sheila Malory mystery, 3 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Familiar protagonists in the country setting which Hazel Holt handles best. A gentle read, but convincing. Rather cosy for my taste in crime fiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars i am hooked!, 3 Nov. 2013

Having only recently discovered Deborah Crombie's crime fiction, I am now totally hooked. Her characters are convincing, and plots move fluently between past and present. This is good quality writing comparable to Elizabeth George.

As always Helen Forrester gives a faithful portrait of the place - Liverpool - and times - post war. It is good to find her novels as affordable ebooks.

4.0 out of 5 stars a sequel of a different kind, 19 Oct. 2013

This review is from: Longbourn (Kindle Edition)
Pride and Prejudice seen from the Longbourne servants viewpoint. I wasn't sure if it would work, but it does. It is well written and well imagined.

4.0 out of 5 stars yes, she can write in other genres!, 4 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It took me a long time to believe I was going to like this book. It seemed very slow moving and predictable. Then in the last quarter of the book I began to believe in the characters and their varied personalities and problems.

Penelope Lively always writes well. This little book captures a small part of a girl's experience of travelling abroad. Ideal for a train journey or waiting in the dentists'.

4.0 out of 5 stars very readable, 20 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Jane Austen's life told in a series of snapshots. It may add nothing new to the bank of facts known about her life, experience and thoughts, but uses well the material available from letters and contemporary writings to reveal the Jane we all love.

5.0 out of 5 stars white feather murder, 11 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A group of young men who at the outbreak of war find themselves as conscientious objectors, unwilling to become 'instruments of slaughter', and yet face conscription. Edward Marston's portrayal of the period is accurate and enlightening. His books are always a treat.

I have enjoyed Sue Grafton's Kinsey series and thought it would be interesting to know more about the author. I was a little disappointed.

If you have any experience of autism you will find this book intriguing. It is written by a young Japanese autistic boy who is answering questions about his condition with frankness and simplicity.
