Just My Luck
Just My Luck
by Andrea Bramhall
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.99

5.0 out of 5 stars She knows she's loved by her mum and the rest of her family, 7 Sept. 2016
This review is from: Just My Luck (Paperback)
There are two main characters in this book - Genna and Abi.

Genna has a rubbish life - a lover who wants to spend more time in work than at home with her; a job she hates, but it pays the bills; and a father who never wanted to know her or her brother and disappeared when she was two. She knows she's loved by her mum and the rest of her family, but her self esteem is at rock bottom. She's even been in love with her best friend Abi for years, but has never had the guts to tell her.
After discovering that she has won the Euro Millions lottery to the tune of 156 million, she then finds that her life is going to change quite dramatically - some of it not for the better.

Abi is a hardworking single mum to a little girl called Rosie, who has Down's Syndrome. She isn't in a relationship, but whatever relationship she chooses, her little girl comes first every time. Her only problem is that the only relationship she wants is with her best friend Genna, but feels that she wouldn't be good enough, being that she has a child, is a lot older than her crush, and she thinks that her body isn't great.

As Genna navigates the ups and downs of being wealthy, and how it effects her and her family relationships, can she and Abi finally become more than friends? Can they find the soulmates they have been wanting all their lives?

I absolutely adored this book. Andrea, again, has gotten me hooked from page one. All her characters, main and secondary, are all engaging and you feel all the emotions of their stories. There were plenty of laugh out loud moments. The comedy was brilliant.

Writing in the first person for both Genna and Abi, was brilliantly done too. I admire anyone who can do it and do it well.

If this is your introduction to Ms Bramhall's writing, then you're in for a treat. If, like me, you have read all her novels, then you won't be disappointed with her latest work.

Contray to what others have written, I ordered this on Friday and it arrived yesterday. It was in a box, well packaged , the bottle had the smaller hole in the top and it had a sprayer. I think the ones that have given one star have been anomolies, as I would definitely order again.

5.0 out of 5 stars An author to watch out for, 14 May 2015

This review is from: Coming to Terms (Kindle Edition)
This is the first book from K.A Moll. The story is of a police officer, Sawyer James and at the beginning we see her called to a hospital where her twin sister Amber has been admitted after a psychotic episode. There she meets her sister's Social Worker Sage Carson, and chemistry sparks fly.

As the story unfolds, you discover that the twins had a traumatic childhood, and through love and forgiveness, they learn to live with what has happened to them and to look positively at the future.

The author, herself, has degrees in Psychology and Social Work, so the research was really good. The interraction with the characters was great and you cared for all of them.

Can't wait for her next book out in a week or so. Read her, you won't be dissapointed!

Radclyffe has done it again! A superb romance by the leading lesfic author takes us on a rollercoaster of a ride of emotions.

Presley Worth is brought in by the trustees of a family run hospital to close it as it had been running on empty for years. The Rivers, a family of brilliant doctors will do whatever it takes to save it, as they have run it for the last 100 years or so.

What Presley didn't bank on is falling in love with one of the Rivers' girls, a feeling she is not used to and is quite frightened of. Can she keep her and do her job, or will one have to be sacrificed for the other?

A brilliant romance and another great novel in the Radclyffe catelogue.

5.0 out of 5 stars All-time Favourite, 14 May 2015

This is a classic. I've loved it since I was 12.

Atticus Finch is a lawyer in 1930's american south who is the single father of Jem and Scout. The novel weaves us through the community they live in, the obvious divide between not only the black and white community, but also the social boundaries of the families of the town. All of this is told through the eyes of Scout, a very inquisitive, quick thinking girl who you fall in love with straight away.

When Atticus is asked to defend a young black man, Tom Robinson, of rape you can sense the tension between the town and how they feel about Atticus doing this impossible job. The courtroom scenes are some of the most vivid and the dialogue is fabulous between accused and accuser.

For me the most memorable part is the first time we meet Arthur 'Boo' Radley. This for me is what the novel is about - rumour and conjecture of someone we don't know spread by ignorance being completely wrong once you meet them.

Wow wow wow I just can't wait for Ms Lee's new novel in July. This is a novel that will never grow old, and I'm afraid the issues will always be relevant. A novel that will forever be on my TBR over and over again.

When a body is found in a river one early morning in early February, questions are asked. Who was she, how did she get here, and more importantly - why?
Only the Professor she hated at Southampton University can uncover who she really was. We all project something different to different people, but are we truly real even to ourselves? As he investigates her life to produce a memoir, everyone in her life is scrutinised as he reads letter, blogs, emails and texts from her and all who knew her to discover who Alice really was.

A brilliant first novel. Can't wait to read his next.

This review is from: Disclaimer (Kindle Edition)
Catherine and Robert have moved into their new home. A smaller place, as their son Nicholas has got himself a job and a place to live. Catherine, though can't sleep after starting to read a book that was posted to her. The book is about her and what seemingly happened to her 20 or so years ago. How does this person know her, and why is this story written now? How does she protect herself and her family from the distruction that it could cause?

This is a well written first novel. I enjoyed it immensely, and it would certainly make a good tv drama.

Very intelligent, first rate crime novel. The first of a new series featuring a tough, no nonsense detective inspector called Kim Stone. On the outside she's heartless and will do anything to get the job done, but inside she's caring and wants justice for her victims.

The story revolves around the discovery of recently deceased bodies at an archeological site that had had blocking one way or another for over two years. Add to the fact that the ground is part of land that housed a children's home and that staff connected to the last months of it's life are also being murdered, there is a determined killer who doesn't want DI Kim Stone to get justice for them.

The team she leads is only her and three others, and although she isn't the best communicator, nor the most affable boss, she does know how to get the best out of the team.

The novel is well paced, researched well and brilliantly edited. I love Kim, she's a stayer and can see this series running for a long while.

Well done for a great first novel, bring on the next one!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Debut Crime Novel, 5 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Always looking for a new, exciting novel, and found it in this one.

Set in London, Cambridge, Holland and Germany, the thrills start on page one. The author brings in South London drug gangs, underage prostitution and acadaemia all into the mix. The main protagonist is a wordlywise before her time Georgie McKenzie who's studying in Amsterdam. Her past is her past, and that's how she wants it. But someone is watching her.....

The author has done her research, and there is not one dull moment in the whole book, and the editing was superb. There will be, no doubt comparisons to Anne Holt, Jo Nesbo and the like, but Ms Riches has her own voice and a brand new heroine.

Well done, and I can't wait for the next one out in August.

Had a keyboard kindle - absolutely fab. This one, however is not very user friendly, has annoying banner adverts I can't get rid of and what's with moving the books to collections of your choice but still seeing them outside of that collection. The first kindle was well thought out, this one will take alot of getting used to......
