The nature of the beast / by Penny, Louise,

Publication: . 376 pages ; 24 cm.

An excellent story but needs to be read as part of the series - it wont make much sense otherwise. Added 08/11/2019 by Kath

Casting the first stone / by Fyfield, Frances,

Publication: . vii, 296 pages ; 24 cm.

This book will make no sense whatever unless you read 'Gold Digger' first. Added 16/08/2019 by Kath

The Department of Sensitive Crimes / by McCall Smith, Alexander,

Publication: . 227 pages ; 24 cm.

You'd be forgiven for thinking this is The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency transferred to Sweden. What is gentle and quirky in Botswana is downright tedious in Scandinavia! Added 20/06/2019 by Kath

Ready player one / by Cline, Ernest,

Publication: . 374 pages ; 21 cm.

I loved this book and I highly recommend it, especially if you're a child of the 80s. Added 07/02/2018 by Nicola

A summer at sea / by Fforde, Katie,

Publication: . 357 pages : 24 cm.

Once again Katie FForde delighted me with a fine romance and interesting details of a midwifes profession. Romance in the highlands and a life aboard a boat touring the coast of Scotland. just the read for a summers afternoon. Lynne Added 20/11/2017 by Lynne

Do or die / by Gerritsen, Tess,

Publication: . 381 pages ; 24 cm.

Don't be fooled, these two stories are Romances with Murder overtones. Added 20/11/2017 by Kath

Butterfly on the storm / by Lucius, Walter,

Publication: . 519 pages ; 24 cm.

great book and so up to date cannot wait to read the next two books as butterfly on the storm is the first book of a triology and the ending of his first book leaves you wondering what has happened Added 26/10/2017 by Margaret

Secrets of the sea house / by Gifford, Elisabeth,

Publication: London : Corvus, 2013 . 308 p. ; 24 cm. Date: 2013

Gideon's corpse / by Preston, Douglas J.,

Publication: New York : Grand Central Pub., 2012 . 355 p. ; 24 cm. Date: 2012

I don't enjoy this character as much as Agent Pendergast. Worked out who one of the bad guys was half way through book so didn't enjoy the read very much. Added 02/07/2017 by Jennifer

Cemetery dance / by Preston, Douglas J.,

Publication: London : Orion, 2009 . 435 pages ; 24 cm Date: 2009

This was the first book I have read by these authors. Very clever story and great mix of mystery, fantasy and horror. Looking forward to reading more of them. Added 09/06/2017 by Jennifer

Publication: Stratford, N.Z. : B. Anderson, 2004 . 134 p. : 22 x 29 cm. Date: 2004

What a wonderful book telling some of Keith Anderson's story, but also amazing reference of his oil paintings of and around the Mountain and other places of meaning to him. Absolutely loved finding this book and enjoying the stories it tells. Jenni Corbett

Never say die / by Gerritsen, Tess,

Publication: . 285 pages ; 23 cm.

This book isn't quite as bad as the cover suggests, but getting close. Added 15/05/2017 by Kath

To the sea / by Dibley, Christine,

Publication: . 451 pages ; 24 cm

I found this to be a mystical story mixed with ordinaryness of solving a missing person case. The usual cast of characters the missing persons family and friends, and the detective and his team. But the story drew me in and I became engrossed wondering just what had happened to the missing girl. The Detective is drawn in too and becomes more involved with the family and the stories they tell. I have to say i did not expect the ending. which really surprised me. Added 28/03/2017 by Lynne

Jean harley was here / by Johnson, Heather Taylor,

Publication: . 242 pages ; 23 cm.

The cover says this is a book to "savour" and I agree. It is delicately written and poetically it delves into the minds of each character left behind, their memories of Jean and the turns their lives take after her death. The effect of their memories of Jean changes the ways some of them live their lives and even affects the person who accidentally ran her over. I am happy to recommend this novel.

The bear and the nightingale / by Arden, Katherine,

Publication: . 324 pages ; 23 cm.

I found this book enthralling, the descriptions of Russian life and the bleak conditions of life lived so far away from the comfort of cities. It's an old story reselling folk tales and spirits and demons in the night . The heroine is a wild young girl who grows strong and desires to save her people even though the priest has turned them against her. A very good read. Added 19/03/2017 by Lynne

The satanic mechanic / by Andrew, Sally,

Publication: . 312 pages ; 24 cm

The second in what I hope will be a long series by this author I was as enthralled by this mystery crime novel and the characters in it as I was by the first book. Tannie Maria is still dealing with her issues from an abusive marriage. Her fellow crime investigators Jess and Policeman boyfriend Henk are further developed in this story. And of course all through the story there is food glorious food which helps each different situation. I almost put on weight just reading it. Another spellbinding story can't wait for the next one.
