To Distraction: A Bastion Club Novel

3.0 out of 5 stars Another winner, 17 Sept. 2006
This tells the story of Phoebe and Deverell, Viscount Paignton and is another Bastion Club Novel. Phoebe is marriage shy due to being assaulted in her younger days and as a result runs an agency to help rescue maids who are at risk from their employers. Deverell realising that a straight forward proposal of marriage will not work, becomes involved with all aspects of the agency in order to win Phoebes trust, and succeeds. Throw in some white slavers to give a bit of excitement and you have a trademark Laurens novel. I have only given this book 3 stars as bits seem to be repetition from earlier novels, and in places I wondered if a cut and pate had been used with only the names changed. However it is still a very good read, with interesting main and secondary characters, and a plot that holds your attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 5 Jun. 2006
This is a reissue of 2 of Diana Palmers earlier books Maggie's Dad and Matt Caldwell: Texas Tycoon.

Maggies Dad is about Powell and Antonia who almost got married years ago, but fate and a girlfriend got in the way. It tells how they got back together and how the past is resolved. This is one of Diana Palmers better books and I bought this editition as my copy of Maggies Dad was falling to bits and needed replaced, as i had re read it so often.

Matt Caldwell: Texas Tycoon is another really good read as it tells the story of Leslie and Matt. Leslie has had a very tough life and Matt has never really had it bad.

Both books are probably 2 of Diana Palmers better books, and are compulsive reads. Certainly the editing is very good with none of the annoying inconsistencies that are found in some of her other books.

1.0 out of 5 stars I don't believe it, 4 May 2006
As an owner of all Amanda quick novels, I was really keen to buy this, so got it in hard back. That was 6 months ago and I have only now finished reading this.The characters are so predictable and do not engage me at all. Also the tradmark humour is missing. I have in the interim re read all her other books and really enjoyed them. This book has not gripped me at all. Hopefully thiswas an Amanda Quick blip, and her next book will be back to her usual high standard.

3.0 out of 5 stars Another good read, 4 May 2006
This was originally published as Renegade, and follows on from Lawless, and tells the story of Cash Grier and Tippy Moore, the Georgia Firefly, who is apparently not the maneater she comes across as in Lawless. As usual we have the troubled childhoods of both characters, which lead to an initial lack of trust and ends up as a happy ever after. Plotline may be a trifle predictable, but what else do you expect in a romance. However the characterisation is as usual very good.Once or twice things are a bit rushed and the plot line becomes a trifle stretched, but still it is a compulsive read. I have alot of Ms Palmers books and this is one that I do re read.
