The Cuckoo's Calling (Cormoran Strike)
The Cuckoo's Calling (Cormoran Strike)
Price: 2.79

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent detective story, 28 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved this book. It is beautifully written; the rich prose brings the characters to life. It is a detective story and each of the characters has their own story. Strike is a private detective after being invalided out of the army as a war hero. He is down on his luck when he is asked to solve a suicide involving the sister of a childhood friend. The book is set in London and touches on the celebrity scene. I can't wait to read the second book.

This review is from: Adulation (Kindle Edition)
This book reminded me of Daniel Martin by John Fowles as it was about two different writers, one successful and one not yet successful. I found both characters were believable and had real depth. One a script writer and the other a bookstore stockroom manager with a crush on the script writer. They bump into one another at a film premiere and then their stories are told separately until they meet again. My only criticism is the ending could have been crisper and seemed to be dragged out a little too much.


Julia Gets a Life

This review is from: Julia Gets a Life (Kindle Edition)
I enjoyed this book eventually but had to resist the urge to put it down or rather delete from kindle. It is the story of Julia, married 2 kids, whose husband is unfaithful. It wasn't an affair but it was more than a one off which is what pushes Julia over the edge and she throws him out.

The emotions are interesting and probably reflect the feelings of someone in late thirties but you eventually get over thinking marriages are 'happily ever after' affairs and realise they take work and encounter difficulties and mistakes that take work to overcome.

Julia go through much angst typical of a teenager but makes it quite entertaining. Her experiences are rather far fetched but possible.

A good book for reading on the train or holiday.

This is chic lit at its best with believable characters making mistakes and assumptions but all comes good in the end. A good holiday read.

Molly Brown (Mrs Jones Book 2)

4.0 out of 5 stars A detective story with romance, 30 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the sequel to Mrs Jones which I loved. Tommy has left the police force but is occasionally working for the chief to try and eradicate bent coppers. He gets caught up in multiple investigations which puts both his and his families lifes at risk - great suspense. The book is well written and the characters are believable.

4.0 out of 5 stars More than chick lit, 23 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed this book as it was well written and had a bit more to it than girl meets boy and falls in love. I thought it reflected well the feeling of running out of time that females get caught up in when they reach 30. The story had a few twists and turns which certainly kept my attention.

Three different stories about three different billionaires. Book one isn't great but worth persevering as book two much better and book three reasonable.

Brooke is trying to get out of a difficult marriage and has moved to Adams Grove. She meets Mike who hasn't got over the death of his wife. Both struggle with their past and their feelings. Naigle writes well and I couldn't put the book down.

This review is from: 66Fit Elite Foam Roller (Sports)
I borrowed one of these foam rollers so knew how good it was before I purchased it. They are recommended by physios for various exercises. I use this for supta virasana - it supports the length of my spine and my head - perfect.
