5.0 out of 5 stars Happy Old Menopause!, 30 Nov 2013
She's done it again! You know whenever you pick up a book by Carol Wyer you are in for a fun read, even if one like this has a serious side too. With her zeal and zest for fun Carol has tackled the subject of how to cope with the menopause in a clever and fun way. If this doesn't bring a smile to your face as you cope with hot flushes and mood swings, then nothing will. The subject has been well researched and am sure with much personal experience of the subject matter. Well done, Carol, I loved every page, every suggestion. Brilliant stuff!

There's an air of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson in the writing style within this novel, whether consciously or not, indeed Conan Doyle plays a part in the narrative, but it didn't quite work for me.

In the Moors (Shaman Mystery) (Shaman Mysteries) by Nina Milton
Every now and again a book and author comes along that makes you say "Wow". This crime novel by Nina Milton is one such book. Yes, there's paranormal involved but the shamanistic edge is more than credible and I was hooked from the very first page. It's fast paced and kept me guessing right to the cracking and unsuspected conclusion. Would love to see this transferred to the big screen - it would make a brilliant film or TV series. I've read Nina's excellent children's books but this move into crime fiction surpasses anything she's previously written. I eagerly hope there's more to come! I purchased this at a booksigning by the author. So glad I did.
