The One Plus One by Jojo Moyes
The One Plus One by Jojo Moyes
4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, but..., 19 July 2014
I'm a good many books away from having read a traditionally published book, so I thought I would dip in, just to see if all those harsh critics of self-published books had any basis for their unfavourable comments. Well, on the basis of this book...they haven't.

The One Plus One features Jess, a single mum struggling to support two children after the departure of their father: a mum who wants to do the right thing whatever the circumstances and who wants instil the same ethic in her children.

Postcards from Mr. Pish: South and West Edition (M&hellip by K. S. Brooks

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine romance, 10 July 2014
Summertime, for some reason, seems to be a great time for romances...reading them, that is...and one to include has to be A Very English Affair. Faith has a few very enjoyable romances tucked under her belt, and this one is no exception.

Danielle, in her mid-thirties, seems to have done well: a successful travel agency and owns her own home. Then, the icing on the cake comes in the form of handsome Christian, who sweeps her off her feet and a passionate love affair leads to an undying love for each other they know will last forever. How long, though, is forever?

A bit of a tearjerker, this one, but without being sloppy, cliched or over-sentimental. As always, the story… Read more
