Price: £3.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Start of a series, 21 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Bomb Girls (Kindle Edition)
I read this on the kindle

This is the first of 3 books the 3rd will be out late 2017

You have Emily, Alice who are from the area where the bomb factory is then there is Agnes who is from London & been transfered from the Woolwich Arsenal factory,Lillian from Bradford & Elise who escaping from her father in Gateshead

It tells of their ups and downs as they make the bombs, Agnes who's husband is missing &who's daughter is in Keswick that is why she come up to the newly formed bomb factory
Emily fiancé is away fighting.

You find out how they get on with the Canadian & the Americans arrival & how they become more like a family

I won't spoil it but I needed a tissue near the end this gives you a complete story that goes to the end of the war

With that said there are more books I hadn't heard of this author before & just got the sample but once I read that I was hooked as it gives you a really good read & I can highly recommend this book

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series, 19 Aug. 2017

I read this on the kindle

This is the last in the series I found that part of the synopsis is wrong as it says Sally is left expecting after her husband George dies she is not left expecting & her & George didn't marry, also there wasn't a letter which Tilly wants to get to the bottom of but a letter that not given to her

Enjoyed this as you see Agnes come in to her own, Dulcie who is enjoying motherhood with her daughter Hope & her nephew Anthony who she is looking after for sister Edith, Sally is still coming to terms with that her father & her friend & new wife are killed she is looking after her half-sister Alice
Then there is Olive who is mother hen to all she is also mother to Tilly, I did find that Olive tried to call the shots with her so much so that she kept a letter from Tilly who joins ATS & goes off to serve
Then there is Archie Dawson the police Sgt & Barney who is the boy who he takes in

The series was a good series &while the synopsis is a bit wrong it still has you want to read it but you do need to read the earlier books I did miss the 1st book not knowing that there was an earlier one so I read from book 2
The last 2 books are done by a different author using notes ect by the original author but kept the name as Annie Groves was fiction name for her

I Read this on the kindle

This is the 4th book in the Article Row series

The author of the series before this has died so this & the last one in the series is written by a different author using notes ect of Annie Groves

This was a very good one as everything has changed for Tilly who joined the Army after her boyfriend Drew has gone back to the USA, Agnes finds out that her parents were married her fiancé Ted is letting his mum come between them by when he going to see her something comes up so that he can't go, Dulcie who is expecting married David he can't father a child he is & has been in love with Dulcie so offers to marry her when she tells him that she expecting, Sally her fiancé who is a doctor has joined the Navy, she has her half sister after her father & her best friend who married her father was killed in a air raid on Liverpool. Then you have Olive who is the mother hen is getting feels for the police Sgt Dawson
You then have the extremely nosey neighbour Nancy she the sort you would never speak to in case she gossiping about you or others

This is such a good series you don't really notice that a different writer had done it
That said in a couple of places paragraphs had been repeated also at the beginning Tilly's age is given as 18 but you are on in years on from the 2 book when she is 18 but those few mistakes didn't detract from the book so much so that I already have the next & last book

4.0 out of 5 stars Could have been longer, 14 Aug. 2017

This review is from: A Wartime Secret (Kindle Edition)
I read this on the kindle

The story is that it's 1945 Grace has a 5 month old daughter & receives a telegram telling her husband will be home that evening he been a prisoner since he was captured at Dunkirk in 1940 so she leaves her daughter with her sister so she can tell him. When he arrives he is a shell of his former self this is the story

It was a good one but felt that it should have possible been longer so more could have gone into the story more as I thought it was lacking a bit

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as Good as the Synopis, 13 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read this on the Kindle

This is a 3 story book each by a different author

The 1st one was not bad did feel like you want to move it along but a okay story & I very much if the Lawyer would do what he did won't say more

The 2nd one well i read the 1st chapter then started the 2nd by then i just couldn't get in to it i did read the last part but didn't read the whole thing as i just couldn't get in to it

The 3rd one was the best i enjoyed that & loved the 2 girls in it the boy you he wasn't mention like the girls but still a very enjoyable story

Reason for only 3 stars is because 2nd story wasn't any good in my opinion & while 1st was nice it dragged it out

Got this on the Kindle

This was an awful book so much so I never finished it

The 1st story while it wasn't that good as it repeats about her birthday being on Christmas Eve & the owner of the ski resort the person who did it the name was just suddenly there saying this is who it is & who they are

The 2nd story well if that how Jane is i never have her for a PI it was a rubbish story & didn't enjoy it at all

By this time i got so fed up with reading such rubbish which i felt a shool child could have done better i gave up

If i could leave a minus star on the overal book i would

3.0 out of 5 stars not great, 30 July 2017
A Short Story as it was it wasn't a great one as it was too short tobe very good

Jacob & Janey are more like siblings but their parents expect them to marry this is their story which is not very long to be a good read

I read this on the Kindle

This was a nice story but the ending was totally wrong as it left a question unanswered can't say what but due to the ending i am only give this 3 stars

Wish authors would end books so you tie all the ends up feel very let down

This was a really good book so good i was reading until very early hours of the morning as couldn't put it down
