5.0 out of 5 stars A great read for the beach, 23 July 2014
This thriller style novel provides a mixture of sex, romance and good old shoot-outs, vividly portrayed under the searing California sun.

Isobel is a lonely and vulnerable English beauty on the rebound from a reckless affair, and fighting a ticking body clock. Ryan is the toy-boyish Hollywood young gun warming her bed, while fighting off competition from mysterious man-about-town Lance.

Can Isobel work out which, if either, to trust while at the same time staying out of the clutches of the determined Detective Burnham, and the shady villains who are interested in more than her body?

The story starts with Isobel being arrested on the Mexico border. She knows she’s no drug-runner and so do the cops, so why is everyone out to get her?

This book has a fast-paced plot and is a great read while you're sitting on the beach.

Price: £7.49

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have If You're Travelling to Athens, 13 Jun 2014
Most travel books are a bit bland and cold. What's great about this one is that it's written in a warm and personal way. What's more, the author has actually lived in Athens, and is incredibly knowledgeable about the city's culture.
She takes you through the neighbourhoods, exploring the city's monuments and museums, to places you would not otherwise see.
This book is a must-have if you want to find the hidden treasures of Athens that other travellers won't know about.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Made My Daughter Smile, 13 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My daughter had been having challenges with bullying at school and I was at a loss for how to best help her.
A friend recommended this book, and I'm so glad she did.
After reading, my daughter (aged 7) said: "Mummy, this book makes me feel happy again."
It's a really great way of showing your children that happiness is inside of them, no matter what challenges they face on the outside.

5.0 out of 5 stars Memorable, educational and haunting, 13 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I gave this book to a friend who knows nothing whatsoever about domestic violence to read.
He is STILL talking about it even today! Yes, really.
This book gives really valuable insights into what domestic violence is, how it slowly spirals out of control without you even noticing, and how to break the cycle of abuse.
It's full of frank and honest advice. If you've ever experienced domestic violence, this book will help you understand what's happening and gives tips on how to move forward to a happier life.


Mighty Matilda and the Missing Crown Jewels
Mighty Matilda and the Missing Crown Jewels
Price: £2.34

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, Fresh and Wacky, 13 May 2014
This book is filled with memorable one-liners such as: ‘Do unto others before they do unto you’ and 'I’m as good on a horse as a whale on a trapeze’. We have a Prime Monster instead of a Prime Minister; Selfishes instead of Selfridges; Horrids instead of Harrods.
The characters are all larger than life, the world is magical, and the plot roars along at a breakneck speed.
It's fun, it's fresh, it's wacky and it's totally different to anything you're likely to have read before.

5.0 out of 5 stars Relief for Carpal Tunnel and Repetitive Strain Injury, 8 Jan 2013
If you've ever suffered with carpal tunnel or repetitive strain injury, you'll know how painful and debilitating it can be.
The author of this book suffered for 5 years, then wrote this book to save anyone else suffering the same experience.
This is an extremely informative book, written in an accessible style - covering both prevention and relief.
It's a must for anyone who works on a computer keyboard or has a mobile phone and has started to feel twinges of pain.
This does exactly what it says on the tin: how to avoid it and what to do if you've got it. Excellent.
