5.0 out of 5 stars I have read all (as far as I am aware ..., 16 July 2014
I have read all (as far as I am aware!) of Ruth Rendells books and this is the one I particularly remember for being really scared when I read it. I must get it again and re-read it, before I pass it to my daughter who likes to be scared!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite good, 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like the fact the HP printer is a lot quicker than my old Epson, but I am disappointed with it's printing of scanned documents. I have to scan my Radio Times Crossword amongst others, to enable me to enlarge and read the clues, but I find whereas the Epson printout was nice and sharp, the HP printer 'ghosts', i.e. is will print a 3 with another 3 a little below. making it even more difficult to read. Such a pity, otherwise I love it and the easy access to replacing ink cartridges.
I did not find it easy to set up and after two days trying had to have professional help in the end, some of it had to be done on-line. Why can't they stick to the simple way of just providing a disc that will do the job with no complications.

4.0 out of 5 stars unsatisfactory end, 25 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I always like her books about Thea but I was disappointed in the ending of this one. It seemed to have been a quick fix to get the book finished and quite out of tune with the story. I hope Rebecca will give a bit more thought to the ending of the next one.

1.0 out of 5 stars in the ether - Miss McKenzie, 20 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Miss Mackenzie (Kindle Edition)
I would love to review it, unfortunately I never managed to download it to my kindle. It used to be simple, but now it is all WiFi which I don't have and though I have had many attemps to download books these days it doesn't happen any more. when something worked why change it? I shall not be buying any more Kindle books, waste of time. I particularly wanted a Veronica Stallwood book, but likewise, it never downloaded.

This review is from: Spinster of the Parish (Paperback)
Very disappointing, not at all as interesting as her other books. I ended up skipping paragraphs towards the end, something I never do, it was so boring.
Ann must have been having an off period when she wrote this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Leaks, 23 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After reading the review before I purchased this item, I was very careful to only heat it on the lowest rating, which meant it was only moderately warm but comforting However after a week it started to leak and the next time it leaked very badly. I then tried to stick duct tape round to stop it leaking but it still oozed through so I shall have to throw i out.
I consider the £20 it cost me (with postage) exhorbitant for a weeks use and will never again puchase this type of HWB. My old one was of a different type of filling I believe and lasted me for 10 years, so I couldn't believe this one was so badly made. They should not sell an item which iis obviously not up to the job.

2.0 out of 5 stars corner cutting in printing, 2 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I usually enjoy Ann Purser books and looked forward to a new one but this particular book has been published in very small print, crowded onto small pages, not good for my eyes trying to read in bed, like a lot of other people. I would raher pay a little extra for a decent publication I can read in comfort. What a shame, I shall be careful not to buy any others in similar ilk.
