5.0 out of 5 stars King Harry., 6 July 2014
This is the story of Henry VIII and his six wives: fashioned into a modern day family saga. It’s very cleverly done, and the research is well executed with some wry humour, and blended into modern times.
The ‘king’ is Harry Lanchester, a handsome property magnate with the midas touch and a roving eye. He had me in mind of a certain Jilly Cooper character, but what perfect casting!
Lanchester Estates of course lends the plot an ideal framework for dastardly dealings, conquests and womanising. Reminders of Henry’s Tudor life are never too far away.
Overall, an ambitious novel, unique and very readable.

In this second book of the series, Hell is well and truly shaken up and taken over. How the hell can the Devil lose Hell?
In a brilliant twist, the author pulls another rabbit out of the corporate hat which is the rivalry between Heaven and Hell. As if this isn’t enough to contend with, Alice Spoon makes a play for Lucius. Can Evie hold it all together, especially when the anniversary of Malcolm’s death comes around and she is plunged into another dark place. But this is Evie; and of course she launches a master plan, a campaign to equal no other and a new religion puts Lucius back in the running.
This is a truly unique story… Read more
