Under a Broad Sky
by Ronald Blythe
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £13.48

5.0 out of 5 stars Suffolk, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Under a Broad Sky (Hardcover)
Ronald Blythe's usual thoughtful view of Suffolk, life and living. (No more words to add) No more words I said!

Watching for the Kingfisher: Poems and Prayers
by Ann Lewin
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Birdwatching, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A collection of much of Ann Lewin's published verse. Her poems are simple but deep and thought provoking well worth reading

3.0 out of 5 stars cosy, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This blanket is not very warm even on the highest setting. I've only used it in comparatively mild weather and am not sure how good it would be on a really cold night. However for the price it's OK

5.0 out of 5 stars progress the story, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Palace Guard (Hardcover)
This story takes Sarah's romance with Max forward and also introduces another eccentric Kelling cousin. As usual with MacCleod, the Boston setting and ancillary characters are appealing and it bears her hallmark humour.


The Curse of the Giant Hogweed
The Curse of the Giant Hogweed
by Charlotte MacLeod
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantasy, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Once you've realised that this is a fantasy story, it bears most of the hallmarks of her other work. Pity Helen isn't in it though!


The Plain Old Man (The Crime Club)
The Plain Old Man (The Crime Club)
by Charlotte MacLeod
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A Savoy opera, 12 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sarah Kelling Bittersohn and G and S, what more could one want? If Boston Brahmin families aren't like this they should be! MacCleod goes from strength to strength and although her plots and characters are almost unbelievable at times, we willingly suspend disbelief because she is so deft and funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Danger: birders at work., 12 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: An Owl Too Many (Hardcover)
MacCleod has done it again! An almost incredible plot and characters come to life in her hands with serious points about ecology and the American love affair with firearms gently held up to scrutiny. President Svenson is his usual behemoth self and there are also some new characters to love and laugh at.

5.0 out of 5 stars MacLeod at her best, 12 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vane Pursuit (Hardcover)
This is one of MacCleod's best and Peter Shandy and Helen plus cat are unbeatable.She adds two more to her series of loveable eccentrics in Catriona and Guthrie and rival to Jane Austen in Carlyle and Emerson.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beethoven isn't my favourite composer, but Andras Schiff has converted me! A brilliant insightful and lovely recording; hours of listening pleasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Change of title, 6 Feb. 2014

This review is from: Traitor's moon (Hardcover)
I already had this book! This was the American title, so a disappointment, but had already read and liked it ages ago.
