5.0 out of 5 stars A continuation of the story of Lord Peter Wimsey, 2 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have read all the previous books written by Jill Paton Walsh where she has continued the story of D.L. Sayers' detective and have enjoyed reading them all

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lively Regency Story, 2 April 2014

This review is from: The Grand Sophy (Kindle Edition)
Having read most of the Georgette Heyer historical genre, this was missing from my collection. It compares well with others written about the Regency Period. Makes good bedtime reading

3.0 out of 5 stars Vintage murder mystery, 2 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
More of a long 'short story'. A reflection of emergent information about identical twins, another plot line where D.L. Sayers picks up on topical scientific research of the time.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fairly speedy delivery of these reading glasses which are robust and good value and provide as good as, if not better reading vision than my prescription reading glasses.

4.0 out of 5 stars We saw no midges, 22 Aug 2011
Very speedy delivery. Bought because we were holidaying on West Coast of Scotland in July, which, we're told is the height of the midge season. Thankfully we saw no midges but heard enough first hand reports praising the effectiveness of this product to ensure we take it with us in future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Where were the Midges?, 22 Aug 2011
Bought for my wife, who gets bitten by any flying bugs and then has nasty swellings wherever she's bitten, as we were holidaying on West coast of Scotland in July. Very good delivery service and it's clear that the Head Net would do the job (even if it's not the height of fashion!) but, thankfully, we saw no midges this time.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE EXCELLENT CABIN MAX BACKPACK, 22 Aug 2011
Bought 2 for a week's holiday travelling around by train in Northern Scotland, having flown up to Aberdeen via EasyJet - dragging a wheeled case about did not appeal! This backpack is well constructed - seams, zips etc are very robust. They are capacious (plenty of room for all our stuff needed to cope with a week's holiday and the uncertain Scottish climate for the two of us, in the two backpacks) and comfortable to carry on one's back. We found the outer pockets are particularly useful for paperwork, maps etc.
Wish we had discovered these years ago as travel on Ryanair from Luton to Dublin to see family 3 or 4 times a year for about a week each time and have always paid for a case in the hold, or 2 at Christmas. These backpacks will pay for themselves quite quickly in not having to take a case other than at Christmas. Cannot recommend this product too highly from our recent experiences.

4.0 out of 5 stars POWER TO THE TOMTOM, 17 Jun 2011
Having seen warning reviews regarding cheaper 'generic' chargers, chose this genuine car charger which seemed to me to still be very reasonably priced. Delivery was very speedy and have been using the charger quite a lot of late - as expected, it works fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars MEMORABLE!, 31 May 2009
This review is from: Love Is The Way (Audio CD)
Having attended an Eddi Reader concert for the first time in late April and being mightily impressed, I chose this CD as it included several of the songs from that concert. Very pleased indeed with the CD as a whole - Eddi Reader has an exceptional voice, her support musicians are of the highest calibre and the variety of songs on the CD is most enjoyable. I can thoroughly recommend seeing Eddi live, in a small venue, as I enjoyed, wonderful atmosphere and recording studio quality.
