Can't remember reading a book as good as this since Steve Robinson!

The discriptions are good and the characters well drawn....Nice bits of humour and anyone with a memory of being a kid in the 50's will love this!

Although I do not come from the North It was easy to relate to and if you know or come from Sheffield you are in for a treat. A fab book with enough twists and turns to keep you page turning...Can't believe I got this when it was free.....Fab!

5.0 out of 5 stars I think this is a winner!, 9 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Received the styler yesterday and could not wait to use it. I have shortish hair and was a bit worried, by the other reviews, that the brush may be too chunky for my hair. It's fine! There is a technique for adding body to short hair and the leaflet gives tips for all hair lengths...follow this and you will be fine.
Some observations.....my hair was very soft after using the styler..not dry or crispy...there was a lovely shine along with body that stayed most of the (damp) day.
The styler is for use on dry hair so I will not use the hair dryer tomorrow but will towel dry add styling product and allow to dry naturally...today I used the dryer as I was in a hurry. See how it fairs.
My hair is fine, alot of it and is as straight and fluffy as it can get..hard to style. I found the perfecter a great help in adding body.
This will be great for an evening out to revamp your hair without having to wash it, I am pleased with my purchase.

Check out Tigi salt spray for longer hair, someone on a review said it is great!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good old Agatha!, 7 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You know what you are going to get with MC Beaton....and Agatha. I really enjoyed this book!
These are the sort of books that are made for curling up on the sofa on a grey day.
Agatha is a riot, she does and says things that maybe, just maybe we'd love to say and do ourselves but there is a insecure person there really underneath all the prickles.
It's a romp through village life and full of bigger than life personalities.....but Agatha has the measure of them!
Give it a go, no gore as such and a good read.

The Crumpet recipe is the best I've tried...and I've tried alot! The pea and mint fritters are a triumph! The recipes are interesting and varied, not complicated and the writing style is easy going...a keeper for the collector of cookery books!
