If That's What It Takes
If That's What It Takes
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A voice as soothing as warm honey., 6 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a magic carpet to my past......and I love it.
It takes me back to a hot summer night at the Apollo in Manchester......seeing Micheal live.
It was a delight. This collection of music reminds me of the pleasure of that evening.
Michael McDonald has a voice that makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand tall.
This was a present for my husband, but knowing that I would be sharing his enjoyment of the music is a bonus.
I just LOVE IT.

An interesting read......I half guessed at the outcome of the story, but that did not detract from it.

2.0 out of 5 stars TB or not TB......not the book for me, 23 Jun. 2015
This review is from: Extraordinary Means (Paperback)
This book was a recent birthday present.
I knew nothing about the author and had seen no reviews of the book.
When rating the book I hovered between two stars and three stars.
I read it through to the end, but it didn't inspire me in any way.
It was the kind of book that might be enjoyed by a teenager.
My teen years are half a century in the past so I found it difficult to identify with the characters.
I am not saying it is a bad book, it was just not to my taste.
The characters are well constructed,the writing style is OK.
It didn't move me, inspire me, make me laugh, make me cry....in fact it barely touched my emotions.
It didn't leave me wanting more.....or wondering how the lives of these young people progressed.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book, 22 Nov. 2014
This review is from: The Pact (Kindle Edition)
This book was easy to get into......but very hard to put down.
I loved it from start to finish.
I felt like I knew the characters.....they were living and breathing as i watched their story play out.
It was one of those books that you storm through and then are sad because it is ended. It left me wanting more.

5.0 out of 5 stars I have been guided(or should that be mis guided by the media machine hype about best selling books in the past and have been ) ., 10 Nov. 2014
This review is from: Daughter (Kindle Edition)
I didn't read anything about this book before I bought it...so I knew nothing at all about the hype.
I have been guided(or should that be misguided by the media machine hype about best selling books in the past and have been disappointed so many times )

I have read this book over three evenings......in fact I gobbled it down. Now it is finished I wish with all my heart I had taken the book at a more sedate pace.

I really enjoyed the book, despite its rather sombre subject.
I felt I knew the characters well.......to me they were well rounded and believable.
I could feel the pain of the family as they unravelled as a result of the disappearance of the daughter......how they all had some kind of secret they were keeping from those that they loved.

The book is emotive, it makes you contemplate about life and what we portray to others.......you are not always seeing the full picture....only what people want you to see and believe.

I will no doubt read this book again and would happily recommend it.
