"A dark tale of murder on the Italian Riviera... bit slow to start but it's worth hanging in there for."
Night World: 7: Huntress
Night World: 7: Huntress
"Admittedly, I was losing interest by the time I got to the very last story in this collection, but still worth a read."
The Playground Mafia

"If you read the reviews on here they're mixed. I thought this was OK actually, but a bit flat in places. Depends just how much you like your chick lit! Don't expect a masterpiece."
Handle with Care

"Completely unputdownable."
The Peacock Emporium

"The second one of Moyes I've read and she's quickly becoming a favourite author of mine."
Pure Fiction

"Amusing chicklit with a satisfying ending. Set around a 'book group' but there's not many books in it for some reason... Prefer 'The Reading Group' by Elizabeth Nobel but this is OK."
Tatiana and Alexander

"The sequel to 'The Bronze Horseman' and just as captivating. On with the third book!"
Resistance
Resistance
"I just adore Shreve's writing, A wonderful novel based around an American pilot who crash-lands into Nazi occupied Belgium in WWII. Not your typical love story but there's romance in there."
Eat Cake

"Charming story about a downtrodden housewife who sets up her own cake business. This will make you hungry- guaranteed."
Journey to the River Sea

"Who says all kid's stories just have to be for kids?! Fantastic story about an orphaned girl's journey to the Amazon.  I loved this."

"The third and final part of 'The Bronze Horseman' trilogy. I don't want this saga to end!"
Sleeping With The Fishes: Number 1 in series (Fred the Mermaid Trilogy)
Sleeping With The Fishes: Number 1 in series (Fred the Mermaid Trilogy)
