Ultrasport Women Fiona Fiona Winter Parka, Black , XS
Price: £78.25

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb quality, really impressed, 22 Jan. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Superb jacket, absolutely delighted. This is a serious notch up in quality and waterproofing from 'outdoor' coats you would get in anywhere other than dedicated outdoor shops.
Really nice quality material, super-warm in terms of the lining, and serious waterproofing. Plenty of pockets and places to keep things while out. This is a perfect coat for big walks, out walking the dog etc.
Just really impressed. If anything just a bit on the big side for a XS.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic follow-up, 2 Jan. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Just finished this book tonight. Honestly, what a brilliant story, and a fabulous follow-up to 'I'm Travelling Alone'. This story picks up with Munch and his team of police investigators with the intriguing talent of Mia Kruger (her drink choice of Guinness and Jagermeister is itself a story to be told).

So without giving the story away, just a great page-turner of a crime who-dunnit , twist and turn, great characters both within the police team and within the characters they come across during the investigation. I was completely hooked from start to finish. And what a finish - a brilliant turn of events in the last 15-20 pages built this to a brilliant climax.

A great story, loved every page. I will be getting hold of #3 when it surely appears.


What Remains of Me
What Remains of Me
by A L Gaylin
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Not one for me I'm afraid, 29 Dec. 2016
This review is from: What Remains of Me (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
In truth I just didn't connect to this story at all. I had just finished a different book which had also used the dual-narrative style set within 2 different time periods - that book worked; I just couldn't get into the style and prose of this one at all.

I also found the characters hard to relate to - i guess the point is that the main character has a load of secrets - but perhaps taken so far as to make the characters somewhat inaccessible. I persevered, but sorry this just wasn't for me - I need for of an emotional pull to really get into a book like this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does a job, 29 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Not really a lot to say about this - its a plastic case that surrounds the phone. Nothing special - just a half-decent protector

Fits the phone well

The bonus is the plastic wallet that comes with the phone - this will do for taking the phone out on my bike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great case, 27 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Really good case. Fits well, looks good. Quite expensive for a case I suppose, but its going to be worth it when its needed. Case seals well round the phone, and all the buttons etc are all quite accessible and usable.
So does the job very well, very happy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eclipses many other good thrillers, 25 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I haven't read anything previously by the author, but the synopsis of the story was intriguing so I decided to give this a go. It is written from different characters perspectives and jumps back/forward around 15 years between the different stages of the story. I liked this - its a nice way to keep the story evolving, and the twist/turns come thick and fast as the book progressed.

I think its 4 stars as I think there were a few side stories that appeared later on that perhaps distracted from the key threads.

But overall, I did enjoy this book. Gathered good pace as it went, and I would read more by the same author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply brilliant, 19 Nov. 2016
Absolutely superb album, welcome back Metallica! Had this playing on my system for last 24 hours, a fantastic mix of new - classic Metallica. Halo on Fire stands out as a masterpiece of old. I simply cannot wait for european tour - they are the must-see band for 2017.

My 14 year old daughter (Abby) took this book on holiday and told me she really liked it. She said it got quite confusing at times, but she liked the story and also liked the way Abbys friendships were described. She said she would read another book by same author, so will go and have a look.
