Miranda's Big Mistake (B Format)
Miranda's Big Mistake (B Format)
by Jill Mansell
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Read, 3 May 2015
Miranda has been one of those girls who have never very good love. But after getting an invitation to a party from her landlord Florence she meet Greg and thinks he is a winner but there one problem, Greg is all ready married to Chloe, who is pregnant with child and has moved in with Florence and Miranda.
"Miranda's Big Mistake" is the first book have read by Jill Mansell and I don't think it will be last. This was pretty good book that gave the reader a good storyline. The book moved quickly and kept the reader interested. Can't wait to read more Ms. Mansell.

After meeting Queenie Tate a young girl who has been left on her own by her good time mother. War comes and the girls are evacuated but some awful happen that will change them forever. The coming years will see many changes but they will always be together.
"Queen of the Mersey" by Maureen Lee is okay book but be prepared for a long book. I have to admit that I enjoyed the part the book that was set during the war. But overall "Queen of the Mersey" is a nice family saga.

Mary Jones has been living a sheltered life with her Vicar father and mother who does not show her much love. After their deaths Mary realizes her beginnings were much different than she thought. After going to Cliffehaven to find out there she comes from. But what Mary does not realize by coming to the sea-side town that she will be digging up the past. A past some may want to forget.
"While We're Apart" by Ellie Dean is the latest "Cliffehaven" book in series, I have to say that I really didn't enjoy much. This book wanted me wanting more and to me it didn't really end. I hope that the next book will help readers wrap up Mary's story.

I really wanted to like "The Dressmaker" by Benita Brown but I found the book really boring and seem to really drag. I know that others this book but it was not for me

I really wanted to like "The Downstairs Maid" by Rosie Clark but I have to admit it was a struggle for me to finish. It seem that Ms. Clarke was dragging it out and the ending seem rushed. Overall "The Downstairs Maid" was a nice book.

The Shopkeeper's Daughter
The Shopkeeper's Daughter
by Lily Baxter
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.85

2.0 out of 5 stars An okay read but not Ms. Baxter's best work, 21 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is 1944 and victory is in sight, but Gennie Travis continues to work in her family's furniture shop. After her sister Shirley get herself in trouble they are shipped out of town to an aunt's house. While in Shropshire, Gennie meet Lt Nick Miller and romance starts but after finding out he has a fiancée back home Gennie end the relationship. After the death of her father she and Shirley head back to London to help support the family.
I have read all the books by Lily Baxter and I have to say that "The Shopkeeper's Daughter" is my least favorite. The way that Gennie acts make the reader she is saint. This idea is reinforced by behavior of her sister Shirley. Others may have enjoyed "The Shopkeeper's Daughter" but this is not a book that I will be keeping.
