Wrongful Death (Anna Travis series Book 9)
Wrongful Death (Anna Travis series Book 9)
Price: £3.80

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Lynda la Plante novels, 30 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another excellent novel by Lynda la Plante. I took this away as a holiday read and I found it to be very hard to put down. I hope there will be more involvement of the Travis and Langton characters in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, good value, 18 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am dress size 12 or 14, so I was a little concerned which size I should go for - 10-12 or 12-14. I contacted the seller for advice and measurements of the garment which helped to make my decision. I went for the bigger size which is doing the job and at the same time comfortable. Good quality garment and I am very happy with the service receive, as it arrived very quickly and with my purchase.

I'm so glad I ignored the low ratings.
'Some Day I'll Find You' has great storyline and I found it hard to put down.
A great holiday read!

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish product, very disappointing., 17 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've tried lots of different products to remove hard skin, but this is by far the worse.
I followed the instructions, but it left my heels very rough. There are a lot better, cheaper products on the market.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb table. Strong, neat and well worth the extra cost., 17 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent table. I did quite a lot of research as I wanted something that would tuck away when not in use.
Before purchasing this great little table, I checked out lots of reviews and it seemed that most of the other tables were a bit flimsy and some broke after a short time. This table appears quite robust and very firm when in use. I mainly use it for my laptop but I also intend to use it as a table for granddaughter to use when we are baking.
The surface area is also quite a bit bigger than the other tables, so there is plenty of room for a mousemat etc. when using the laptop, also perfect for jigsaw puzzles, using a sewing machine and for tv meals.
There is only one negative, but it is only a very minor one - it is a little awkward and stiff to alter the height, (there are 4 different heights to choose from) but maybe this is also a positive as it wouldn't fall apart when being moved.
I'm pretty sure that it will be in serviceable use for a very long time.


Alys, Always
Alys, Always
by Harriet Lane
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.39

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing. Couldn't be described as a thriller., 12 April 2013
This review is from: Alys, Always (Paperback)
I really think this book has been put inside the wrong cover.
On the cover there are excerpts from review in various newpapers which generally describe it as 'psychological thriller', 'gripping', 'chilling', etc. I think I must have half of my paperback missing and kept reading anticipating the suspense to be a bit further on in the book.
I would like to say that the book was well written, but unfortunately I can't. It could probably have been condensed down to 20 pages of actual storyline. The scenes are set with involved descriptions which are there for no reason what-so-ever.
My life hasn't been enhanced in any way by wasting my time reading this novel and is probably the worst book I have ever read.

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest (Millennium series Book 3)
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest (Millennium series Book 3)
Price: £3.67

5.0 out of 5 stars Loving this book, about 70% of the way through it., 14 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As with the previous two, I love this book and also find it hard to put down.
Loved the main characters, but there are also loads of other characters in the book . This is a bit harsh as I like to read before I go to bed. I read it for longer than I should and then find myself restless instead of relaxed, trying to work out who is involved with what.
Brilliant book so far though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to put this book down!, 14 Mar. 2013

Loved this book and found it hard to put down.
Loved the characters, but there are so many of them. Some of the swedish names are a little similar and I found it hard sometimes to think who I was reading about.
Brilliant book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect gift for a coffee lover!, 14 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as an additional gift for my other half. He loves it. It isn't too big, so fits in the kitchen quite nicely. Keeps any remaining coffee hot for up to 2 hours. Works well so far.
