Third Time Lucky (The Coxwells Book 1)
Third Time Lucky (The Coxwells Book 1)
Price: 0.77

4.0 out of 5 stars really nice light and romantic read., 29 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Picked this up for a song after reading and enjoying book 2 in the series.
Have to say I loved it, having read book 2 first didn't spoil it a bit and in fact added to the pleasure.

Well written prose and a really nice romance.
Chic lit at it's best will fleshed out characters and a good story. More mature characters than some other chic lit examples.
I don't think Pushing forty is past it - so personally loved the maturity of the characters.

Recommend as a light romantic read.

4.0 out of 5 stars relaxing chic lit, 26 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice read, enjoyed the main characters pushing forty.

Some nice angles in this book with a good mix of surprises next to predictability.

I didn't realise until after I finished it that is part of a series; One More Time: Volume 3 (The Coxwells)looks tempting.

Lucky for me Third Time Lucky (The Coxwells Book 1)is currently on offer and being offered as a freebie.

Recommended for a light read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unforgettable, 24 Jun 2014
This review is from: Stepmom (Amazon Instant Video)
First saw this first a few years back, and just had to watch it again. It is one of those movies not easily forgotten.

Sad yet tender, a tale of unexpected respect and friendship between the ex and current wife.
Julia Roberts is excellent but both wives shine putting the husband in the shade.

Recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice stunts, 24 Jun 2014
This review is from: Dishdogz (Amazon Instant Video)
Not the best movie but worth watching if only for some great showmanship and stunts.
At times very tongue in cheek, with some interesting stereotypes.

Always a sucker for sports underdog movies, didn't disappoint.

A rainy afternoon movie.

This review is from: Belong to Me (Kindle Edition)
Bought on a whim and lying forgotten on my kindle, this book was a delight to read.
Friendship, 3 couples, 4 mothers; their lives intertwined make a fascinating read with never a dull moment.

I have never read this author before but will be looking for more.

Full of surprises, I can recommend this book as an entertaining and relaxing holiday read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Must watch movie, 18 Jun 2014
This review is from: 28 Days (Amazon Instant Video)
Sandra Bullock true to form is extraordinary; the plot displaying the characteristic character development and humour which typifies her movies and makes them so enjoyable.

If you enjoyed "Miss Congeniality 1 And 2 [DVD] [2005] you'll enjoy this too.
Don't be put off by the slow and sometimes a little depressing start it soon warms up into a typical Sandra Bullock movie.

Sandra plays a drunk who comitted to rehab against the odds learns compassion, responsibility plus the ability to truely let go and take command of her life.

Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice - A lot better than some of the reviewers would have you believe, 18 Jun 2014
This review is from: Down to You (Amazon Instant Video)
Almost discarded this after reading some of the reviews but am glad I didn't.

It was light and amusing as a romantic comedy should be. The talking to which another reviewer referred didn't irritate and added to rather than distracted from the movie.

Recommended for light viewing :-)


Essential ASP.Net 2.0 (Microsoft .Net Development)
Essential ASP.Net 2.0 (Microsoft .Net Development)

Edition: Paperback
Price: 34.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Fritz Onion (Pluralsight) companion to his classic text - still useful for webforms, 18 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A classic by Fritz Onion (from Pluralsight). Recognised as a .net expert this a book for people who are interested in knowing more than just practical application, and are interested in the framework itself.

Purchased in combination with his previous book Essential ASP.NET with Examples in C# (Microsoft .Net Development)(recommended by a colleague) which it supplements instead of replacing.

Only knowing MVC I found these books useful for understanding legacy WebForms applications and worth the low price secondhand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must watch movie for sports and Sandra Bullock fans alike., 18 Jun 2014
Outstanding must watch movie for Sports movie and Sandra Bullock fans alike.
This movie made me both laugh and cry, keeping me fully engaged to the end of the movie with never a dull moment.

Recommended as a cut above the standard sports movie.
Sentimental, yet a joy to watch.
