1.0 out of 5 stars Far too many presumptions, 13 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lots of "May be assumed that..." and "could be..." In this book. Little evidence to back them up. For instance - suggesting that Richard's back / shoulder deformity came from an accident at sea when he was a small boy. The evidence for this is where?

Not easy to read in this format because of the overuse of footnotes and not a terribly engaging style.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just re-released wityh a new cover, a new title and a different author's name!, 24 April 2014

See "Tudor Princess" by Darcey Bonnette.

What a rip off. Why republish the exact same book with everything that draws you in to buy it having been replaced?

1.0 out of 5 stars I wish the review pointing out this was a re-release had been written earlier!, 24 April 2014
A new title. A new author's name. A new cover.

Yet EXACTLY the same book as one I'd purchased previously - The Forbidden Queen by D. L. Bogdan.

Why do this?

I've sent this one back for a refund and I won't be bothering with titles from *either* of these split personalities again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but useful, 16 Dec 2013

Pricey for two replacement toothbrush heads, but it's so handy having a decent travel sized toothbrush in my overnight bag that I had to buy them.

This review is from: Catbin Fever (Kindle Edition)
On Twitter, Catbin Lady was hilarious. Short, sharp, pithy bursts of vitriol. The book just doesn't work. A shame, as I was looking forward to it.

This one was a present for my Mum. I had to buy it, or she'd have kidnapped mine and held it to ransom :)

Soft, soft fleece, great coverage and the foot pocket really helps keep the draughts out.


Ambition's Queen (Bridget Manning #1)
Ambition's Queen (Bridget Manning #1)
Price: £1.26

2.0 out of 5 stars Contrived, 7 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Never has an author worked so hard to get her main character into the right place at the right time. The fictional Bridget would never have seen or heard a fraction of things claimed for her in this account.

Not a great buy. A pitiful read.

This review is from: Yankee - Candle Wick Trimmer
Trims the wick to a short, neat level and is beautifully engraved down the sides of the shanks. Really useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really effective, 6 Dec 2013

I had no idea that this would work as well as it does - it funnels the flame of the candle upwards and the wax seems to burn so much more evenly.

Invision® iPad Mini Smart Case Cover - Front and Back Protection With Magnetic Auto Wake/Sleep Function - Superior Design Features - Premium Quality PU Leather With Microfiber Inner Lining - Independently Recommended by "Which?" Magazine (iPad Mini 1 2 Cover Black)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous case, great price, 2 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I opened the box and looked at the case I thought it wouldn't do the job at all, because I couldn't see how it would *fit* the iPad mini. There are no straps and no obvious methods of fixing it into place. But it just hugs the iPad and fits perfectly.

Smart Cover ensures the iPad goes into sleep mode when you close it up.

It's not heavy, or uncomfortable to grip while you're using it.

Glad I bought this - so much better than the £124 leather version I bought from Apple (and returned!)
