4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Chick Lit, 1 Jan 2011
I am such a fan of chick lit and Brit chick lit is THE best!

A Girl Like You was a fun, entertaining read that is exactly what a good chick lit read should be.

Of course, most chick lit books do stretch reality a little bit, but I don't care, A Girl Like You was so engrossing that I felt as though this one was way too short.

Abigail has learned the hard way that some relationships are so definitely NOT forever. She needs to learn how to date again and this, of course, is one of the central premises of the book and frankly, the funniest part.

In fact, a good chunk of the book is driven by the mother who will do just about anything to reclaim both a title and a fortune - to the detriment of her… Read more

To be completely honest, Stolen Child is not usually my type of read- however, I found the storyline compelling enough to attempt to read the book and I am so happy that I did.

Stolen Child is about a young couple who has it all, until their newborn is kidnapped. What follows is a hearbreaking story of how two people who love each other and their child can slowly disintegrate - without ever finding the strength to turn to each other. Rather, both parents decide to cope with their loss in their own, isolated way - which eventually rips them apart.

We also meet a second couple - who finally managed to get the baby they have ever wanted, but, as karma so often does, we… Read more
