The Girl Who Knew Too Much
The Girl Who Knew Too Much
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Murder mystery and romance in 1930;s California, 15 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A different century for an Amanda Quick novel but just as good.It caught me from the first page - a body and a message written in blood ! Then it continued to get better !! 1930's California and the power of the big film studios made a fascinating back ground to murder and mayhem.I can thoroughly recommend this book to anyone wanting a bit of glamour mystery and of course romance .

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable ghost hunt, 15 May 2017

Not as good as the first in this series.The story was a little thin and there was quite a lot of padding.That said I still enjoyed the ghost hunt !

This review is from: Trust No One (Paperback)
A gripping thriller with a touch of romance Jayne Ann is a master of this type of book be it modern or historical.Her characters are believable and well drawn with many layers to them.Once I started I had to finish even tho that was at two in the morning !

4.0 out of 5 stars Anyone for chocolate ?, 8 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not a series to read if you are trying to diet ! But if you are strong willed enough not to be driven to the kitchen for hot chocolate it is an extremely good story.It can be read on its own but is part of a trio of books best read in order .

5.0 out of 5 stars A ghost story with a twist, 8 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A heroine that sees and talks to ghosts should be naff but the idea actually works very well With her best friend Marina a half Scillian fire cracker and their assistant Little Art (or Artie) Melody Bittersweet has set up her own Ghostbusting Agency and their first job is to rid Scarborough House of its three resident ghosts.before her ex boyfriend Leo Dark (of TV fame) can whilst trying to avoid the disbelieving but very dishy local reporter Fletcher Gunn..A fast moving and at times hilarious story I am looking forward to the next in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy and not liable to tip., 8 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for my grand daughter's first birthday.She is just toddling and it makes a safe and sturdy walker though she has also sat in it a few times !The design has meant it did not tip as she clambered over it which with any toddler must be a plus.


The Queen of Wishful Thinking
The Queen of Wishful Thinking
by Milly Johnson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.85

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally unputdownable !!, 8 May 2017
It made me laugh it made me cry this book was so true to life I felt like kicking one character whilst giving another a good hug . Milly really has out done herself this time talk about lucky thirteen.I have enjoyed nearly all Milly's books but I think this is the best yet..As the blurb on the book says Bonnie Brookland is trapped in a loveless marriage to dull managing Stephen (he's the one who needs the kick)Her job isn't much better,she loves the antiques in the shop which once belonged to her father and his partner but dislikes and mistrusts the low life son of her late father's partner who now owns the business.When she is sacked for warning an elderly lady not to sell him her antiques Bonnie screws up her courage to ask for a job at a new antique shop The Pot of Gold.This is owned by Lewis Harley who until a near fatal heart attack two years previously had been a high flying money man in the city.Lew is now following his dream of owning and dealing in antiques.His glamorous wife is not so sure about the change in their lifestyle and trouble is brewing with her over spending and her close friendship with the spoilt and opinionated Regina .Whilst Stephen's reaction to first Bonnie's new job and then her actually leaving him is seriously disturbing.
If you have never read Milly before please try this book it is great.
