Haunted on Bourbon Street (The Jade Calhoun Series Book 1)
Haunted on Bourbon Street (The Jade Calhoun Series Book 1)
Price: £0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read, 1 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First encountered Deanna Chase on a compilation of short stories about Halloween - liked her characters so much I decided to buy the first of the series with the same people. I was not disappointed - interesting characters, great location and a narrative style that really bounces along. The plot is good too - didn't see the end coming at all. Am about to buy the second one in the series - here's hoping it will live up to the first.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb album - brilliant voice and great songs, 1 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I only heard about this singer a week ago whilst spending a few days with my sister. I happened to see the video of Listen to the Man and fell in love with both the song and this young man's voice. On the strength of this, I bought the album and have been listening to it ever since. Love most of the songs and like the others - and I'm sure I'll get to love those others as well. He has an amazing voice and I like the combination of styles on this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great story and very likeable hero, 5 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rough Cut (Kindle Edition)
An unusual book - the action takes place on a canal boat, the hero is his late middle age (nice change...) and it's essentially a thriller with a softer edge to it (the violence can be brutal, but is usually short-lived). I really liked the hero - very much a Mr Average trying his best to cope with some very unusual circumstances - and the writing bounces along at cracking pace in places then slows down so you can get your breath back. Excellent read - look forward to his next one!

Miss Phryne Fisher Investigates (Phryne Fisher series Book 1)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good start to a series, 5 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An interesting read that bounced along at a fast pace. Our intrepid heroine, whilst living in the 1920s, is very modern in her ideas and attitudes and is a delight. The writing is a bit simplistic at times and, although the plot was a bit convoluted (it had everything - seduction, abortions, drugs, violence, loveable rogues), all loose threads were tied up by the end. I certainly enjoyed this enough to read the next in the series......

3.0 out of 5 stars Such a disappointment!, 5 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this book disappointing - the synopsis on Amazon sounded interesting and it started off OK, but took a long time to go nowhere at all and in the end, after about a third, I got bored and gave up. Whoever did the proof-reading did not do a good job - so irritating! The writing style is OK and the overall premise is fine but it was just too slow-paced for my taste. Also, I can't say I particularly liked the lead character - in the end, I wasn't that interested to find out what happened to her......

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet memories....., 5 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of my all-time favourite songs - brings back memories of the early 70s which were a good period for me. I only ever had one America album and the only reason I bought it was because of this song (don't think cassettes were around then, let alone CDs or MP3s...!!)

3.0 out of 5 stars Two out of four aint bad...., 5 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like reading anthologies because it gives me a chance to discover new authors and, perhaps, take them up as new favourites. That was the plan with this one and from that perspective, it worked as I have discovered Deanna Chase (Spirits of Bourbon) and intend to read others of hers as I like her style of writing and would like to know more about her main characters.
A definite maybe was Liz Schulte (Ghosts in the Graveyard) - I liked her heroine though not so keen on her writing style.
Two definite no-nos were Angie Fox and Rose Pressy - I thought both stories were poorly written with lumpy dialogue and not very interesting story lines.
So, overall, not a bad mix - one new author and another possible - definitely worth downloading onto my kindle....

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a good fit, 23 Nov. 2014

Didn't like this bra at all. It didn't fit properly anywhere and gave no support whatsoever to my breasts. The straps were too thin and cut into my shoulders. Altogether, a bad buy

2.0 out of 5 stars Not sure about this one, 23 Nov. 2014

Couldn't get into this at all, despite the fact that I really like fantasy novels. I may go back to it in a few months and give it another try.....
