5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping story, 10 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very gripping story and most enjoyable. I haven't ever read a book by Anna Jacobs that I haven't enjoyed. It is indeed a rare art to be able to draw the reader into the story to the point you don't want to stop reading it to do mundane things like making a meal or going out shopping. Another great read by a fantastic author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another brilliant story., 3 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't think there has ever been a title released by Anna Jacobs that I haven't awarded 5 stars to. This is another wonderful read by this author. I don't know how many follow up books are set for this series, but I can't wait for the next one to be released. It is a really good story to lose oneself in and the only problem is that once I start reading, I can't stop reading it at every opportunity, and then I get to the end of the book with more than a little disappointment. The reader becomes part of the characters and is immediately drawn into the story.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful book, 4 Dec. 2014

Worst book I have read from this author who normally produces good stories. What a load of twaddle this was. Wish I hadn't bothered to buy it. Total waste of money.

5.0 out of 5 stars A piece of kit you just cannot do without, 22 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I already had one of these units but sadly I knocked it off the table and it failed to function thereafter. I was without the unit for several months because, lets face it, it is fairly expensive. I had a phone with a phone block function on it but you only get something like 20 blocked calls in addition to the bocked international and withheld numbers. But I was always aware when a call came through as it bleeped and it just wasn't as efficient as Truecall. I decided to buy another Truecall Unit and well what can I say? It is sheer bliss because I now have total silence except for those calls I need or want to receive. I cannot praise this unit enough because it surely must be the best of this type of product on the market.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great read., 22 Nov. 2014

This review is from: Peppercorn Street (Kindle Edition)
Another thoroughly enjoyable read from this author. I got so involved with each character and developed feelings for/against each of them. Such a great talent for an author to be able to draw the reader into the story and make opinions about the characters. I so love this author's work. I never feel the need to read a synopsis prior to purchasing any of her books because I just know instinctively that I will enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mixed Feelings, 26 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved this, the fifth and last in the series. I expected to enjoy it as Anna Jacobs is one first class writer. I have read the previous books in the Traders series and this one didn't disappoint. My "mixed feelings" are so because I am sad this is the last book. I feel the author could have written at least one other volume since there were still members of the Deagan clan who emigrated to America. Its a pity that those characters couldn't have been found and a story written around them too. But this was a first class series and I have no hesitation in recommending it. Fantastic reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars In Search of Hope by Anna Jacobs, 16 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In Search of Hope (Kindle Edition)
Once again, Anna Jacobs has written another thoroughly enjoyable read. The story is exciting, and kept me on the edge of my seat and although a cliché, I just could not put the book down. The author has the ability to draw you into the story from the very first page and this one was no exception. I had read the first in the series "A Place of Hope" and it was equally as enthralling. I just cannot praise this author highly enough for her brilliant writing. .
