4.0 out of 5 stars Hands up I liked it, 31 Dec 2010
In case anyone new to Ms Laurens is reading these reviews I wanted to add a comment. This is not the best book to start with since it is the last in a four part series. However the book contains lots of typical features that you either like or you don't - I do. Great straightforward hero and heroine of the Laurens type - check. Use of previous characters in the story - check. Galloping pace (well it speeds up) - check. Unravelling or building mystery - check. I admire the ability to keep the pace and story going whilst floating down a river and needing to remind us of the threat of cultists very frequently. The first major sex scene holds off until half way through which is typical and there is a little more restraint than sometimes. I agree that the whole book could have been editted usefully. I get the impression that Ms Laurens is under a lot of pressure to produce stories at a rate that does not allow the best fact checking however I am a keen fan adding to that pressure so have no complaints.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read and feel joyful, 30 Mar 2010
This is not a self help book although there is some advice on visualisation and meditation in the second half: rather it encourages self belief via a series of real life stories told by the author, a US medical professional. The book is simply uplifting and full of joy. There are no crazy miracle stories just completely believable recoveries or remissions from serious illness that stem from the power of the mind and peace of mind. Bernie Siegel's book can certainly help you on a path towards peace of mind and the associated health benefits.

4.0 out of 5 stars To balance some of the other feedback, 7 Feb 2007
The latest in the Bastion Club series is just as sex-filled and wordy as previous stories so you either enjoy or not. The story is all there and its good (just padded with a lot of sex), lots of regency detail and plausibility, sure the Americanisations don't always sit well with the Brits but once you adapt to this its joy. Plus meeting the previous characters whets the appetite for more similar reading. I am a fan now and am very keen to find out the stories of the remaining club members but most particularly the mysterious Dalziel.
