Good me bad me / by Land, Ali,

Publication: . 339 pages ; 24 cm.

Loved this book. Again a dark story that winds back and forth but the story pulls you in Added 15/04/2020 by Jennifer

Secrets of death / by Booth, Stephen,

Publication: . 394 pages ; 24 cm

I enjoyed this story even though it was challenging at times. The book looks at some of the reasons for suicide and methods. It raises questions about euthenasia and what can be found on the internet Added 15/04/2020 by Jennifer

The friend / by Koomson, Dorothy,

Publication: . 467 pages ; 24 cm

Enjoyed this story and the web between the 4 friends in the story and how there personal secrets unravel. Great ending too. Added 29/03/2020 by Jennifer

Long road to mercy / by Baldacci, David,

Publication: . 404 pages ; 24 cm.

Really enjoyed this new character. Was a strong female lead based in the Grand Canyon. Loved the theme of the twin and look forward to reading the next book in the series. Added 29/03/2020 by Jennifer

The flavours of love / by Koomson, Dorothy,

Publication: London : Quercus, 2013 . 440 p. ; 24 cm. Date: 2013

I would not recomend this book as relaxing easy reading. This book covers a wide of serious issues including murder/ grief. Teenage pregnancy, pedophilia, stalking and harassment, bulimia and anorexia and inlaw conflict. I gave up reading the book page by page from about the middle of the book and just skipped through to the end. Personally just found it too disturbing to have all these issues in one story and didn't enjoy it at all. Added 29/03/2020 by Jennifer

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

A dying breed / by Hanington, Peter,

Publication: London : Two Roads, 2016 . 421 pages ; 24 cm Date: 2016

a very interesting and well written book different from most suspense books but exciting Added 26/10/2017 by Margaret

The lightkeeper's daughter / by Pendziwol, Jean,

Publication: . 310 pages ; 24 cm.

this is a very good first adult novel and i hope to see more of this author. an excellent storyline which grips you straight away and holds you until the end . Lynne Added 15/10/2017 by Lynne

Secrets of the sea house / by Gifford, Elisabeth,

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

this book I believe the category should be fiction not suspense Added 21/09/2017 by Margaret

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

Crimson shore / by Preston, Douglas J.,

Publication: . 339 pages ; 24 cm.

Loved it! Added 02/07/2017 by Jennifer

Red sister / by Lawrence, Mark,

Publication: . x, 467 pages ; 24 cm.

This book is a great read. Adventure. loyalty, sister hood with blades.

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

Keith H. Anderson's Taranaki : celebrating the life and art of a mountain man / by Anderson, Berta.

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
