Mother's Day Out (A Margie Peterson Mystery)
Mother's Day Out (A Margie Peterson Mystery)
Price: £3.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Hugely Enjoyable, 1 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well, this was a nice surprise! Didn't expect too much but this book had it all - a fast moving plot, plenty of villains, great characters and some very funny bits thrown in! It all starts when our heroine takes on a new job with a private detective and in the course of her first assignment stumbles across the body of a mouldered transvestite.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable shorter read, 1 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A retired US cop and a working mum join up to solve the murder of a woman found in the river. Quite an enjoyable read but it's as well to remember this is a short story so you don't tend to get the same depth as in a full length tale.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is as near to the real thing as I ..., 1 Sep 2014

This is as near to the real thing as I think you are likely to get! The pack contains all you need (some do not include charger but this does) and several different options re strength and flavour. Just 1/2 hr charge most days seems to be sufficient. I found the taste quite smooth and the cig well made - in fact I bought a second one for a friend!

3.0 out of 5 stars Wearing a bit thin!, 19 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Our heroine travels with the family to an hotel where a budding reporter,and close friend of her beloved is murdered. Enquiries into the death lead to an asylum where strange goings on need to be uncovered!
Have quite enjoyed this series of books but have given a lower rating as (without giving too much away) there is a continuing thread which is starting to feel like a cop-out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A joy to read, 18 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Flavia de Luce books are always a joy to read and this one does not disappoint. This is a series best read in order and, I imagine, would appeal to any reader over the age of ten! Flavia,now almost twelve, and proficient chemist and sleuth, has to deal with the return of her mother, the death of a stranger and the gradual realisation that certain members of her family belong to a very elite club indeed...
I feel obliged to comment on the author's note whereby he says he feels honoured to have met some of his contempories in Oxford - some of them should feel honoured to have met him!

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended, 4 April 2014

This was exactly the right light fitting for what we needed. It was well packaged and relatively easy to fit. Very pleased with the look of the fitting - better, in fact, than it looked on the web site. I waited a while before writing this review in case it was a five minute wonder but it is still working perfectly

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite up to spec, 4 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Packaging and delivery fine and the cover looks OK, although not quite as I expected. It puts the ipad to sleep no problem but doesn't wake it up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 4 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Packaging and delivery fine but very fiddly to apply correctly and even though I was careful there were still some small bubbles left on the screen. Guess it does the job adequately but rather spoils the look.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hells Teeth This Was Short, 17 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Local busybody found hanging from church bells. Agatha fingers culprit. That's about it.
After last year's short story offering (Christmas Crumble) and the bad reviews I, obviously rather naively, thought this year's 'gift' might be by way of recompense. No. It was even shorter- the beginning is 48% through the 'book'- there wasn't time for a plot as such and, to me, it felt as though the author really couldn't be bothered. Come on, Ms Beaton, your readers deserve better than this!
