Nightingales on Call: (Nightingales 4)
Nightingales on Call: (Nightingales 4)
by Donna Douglas
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.85

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the first three books, 20 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Dora and Lucy are in the last three months of their training, and even though they may have more in common than they think. Jess Jago has started as the new maid for the nurses' home and there is more to the young maid than meet the eye. New trainee Effie O'Hara has come to London to train a nurse but she is spending most of her time getting into trouble and may not make through the first year.
"Nightingale On Call" by Donna Douglas and I have to admit that I didn't enjoy the fourth book as much as the first three books. I have admit I could not be believe the ending and I hope that we see them again. Jess's story was by far best thing about "Nightingales on Call" and I hope we see her again.

The Masterful Mr Montague: Number 2 in series (From the Casebook of Barnaby Adair)
The Masterful Mr Montague: Number 2 in series (From the Casebook of Barnaby Adair)
by Stephanie Laurens
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

3.0 out of 5 stars An okay read, 15 Jun 2014
Heathcote Montague is the man-of-affairs for some of the richest and most powerful families of the Ton. Miss. Violet Matcham is making her way in the world as the companion to Lady Halstead. Realizing that something is wrong with her accounts, Lady Halstead calls upon Montague to take a look at her accounts. Soon Lady Halstead is dead and Inspector Stokes and Barnaby Adair and their respective wives are looking for a murder. With more murders the race is on to find a killer and maybe a new love.
"The Masterful Mr. Montague" by Stephanie Laurens was an okay book. This book is not like other "Cynster related books." The main focus is the mystery and not romance. But overall it was an okay read.


Where the Heart Lies (Beach View Boarding House)
Where the Heart Lies (Beach View Boarding House)
by Ellie Dean
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Not my favorite book in Cliffehaven series, 7 Jun 2014
Nurse and Midwife Julie Harris works in London's East End when a raid kills her parents and her sister Franny dies giving birth to her son William. With nothing left Julie and William head to Cliffehaven and to older sister Eileen, who less than pleased to her family. Soon Julie and William find themselves at the Beach View and in warm and loving care of the Reilly family. But in war nothing is forever.
"Where the Heart Lies" is the fourth book in the "Cliffehaven" series by Ellie Dean and I have to say it has been the less favorite book in the series. I just felt that ending didn't have the same emotional punch as the other books in the series.

I really want to enjoy "Thrown for a Curve: A Perfect Fit Novel" by Sugar Jamison. But it was just not as good as the first book in the series. I can't pinpoint what is was about this book but it just seem to be lacking the spark of the first book.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Annie Manon is living the hard life Northumbrian after the first World War. But Annie want a better life but getting that life will be hard. I have to say that I only got through about "After the Storm" by Margaret Graham before I gave up. This book was plain boring and I could make myself to read anymore. Some may have liked or even loved this book, but I was not one of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Excellent Book, 11 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Survivor (Belle 3) (Hardcover)
Mariette Carrera is the daughter of Belle and Etienne. After putting her reputation in her small New Zealand town in danger. Belle and Etienne decided to send her to England. Mari starts to enjoy her time there but soon war is declared and Mari is stuck for the duration of the war. The war continues and the losses mounts Mari grows up and become the woman that she has always meant to be.
"Survivor" by Lesley Pearse is the best book in the "Belle" series. I really loved the character and the book itself so much that I finished it in three days. While you don't need to read the first two books in the series it does help. I can't wait to read more books by Ms. Pearse.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When the war comes home sister Audrey and Sylvia Whitehouse decide to their part to help win the war. Audrey joins the WWAF and Sylvia decides to come a railway porter, much to her fiancé Ian's dismay. The new career allows Whitehouse sisters to meet new people some who may bring heartache to them and some who may change their lives forever.
I thought that "Meet Me Under the Clock" by Annie Murray was okay if a long book, But I have to say that one of the main storylines in the book may not be for everyone, but overall I liked the book.
