The devil's bargain / by Rimington, Stella,

Publication: . xi, 257 pages ; 24 cm.

Stella Rimington is one of my Favourite Authors and this book is one of her best so far. The story is intertwined from beginning to end with believable content due to her many years at Mi5. A really riveting read. Added 06/07/2022 by Nicola

The princess diarist / by Fisher, Carrie,

Publication: . 257 pages : 23 cm.

Most have known Carrie Fisher as an actress but what many don't know is that she is also a very talented author. All of her books including this one display a very dry and witty humour making this a fun and easy read. The inside story of her time as a fledgling actress in Star Wars and excerpts from her journals make this a very poignant memoir for Star Wars fans. Added 21/03/2022 by Nicola

The lost apothecary / by Penner, Sarah,

Publication: . 301 pages : 24 cm

A charming story of past and present lives intersecting in London when an American woman finds a vial in the Thames. The journey to discover it's origins and the people involved changes her life. An easy read with some interesting historical elements to enjoy. Added 12/03/2022 by Nicola

Publication: . 356 pages, 16 pages of plates : 24 cm.

Beautifully written and a very interesting read! The story of Enid Lindeman who fate dealt an interesting hand. A life very well lived through some of history's challenging times. Will read more by this Author in the Future. Added 02/12/2021 by Nicola

The Thursday Murder Club / Adult. by Osman, Richard,

Publication: . 450 pages (large print) ; 24 cm.

A good idea. Being Book 1, there is a lot of things that happened in the past that are not satisfactorily explained in this book. - hopefully in subsequent episodes.

The hope flower / by Dettman, Joy,

Publication: . 419 pages ; 24 cm.

The continuation of 'Henry's Daughter'. Excellent read.

Pulpit Rock / by Rhodes, Kate,

Publication: . 392 pages : 24 cm.

There's getting to be a sameness about the plots in this series.

Talk of the town / by Johns, Rachael,

Publication: . 11 audio discs (CD) (11 hr., 13 min.) : 12 cm ; in container.

This was an excellent story, narrated very well. Meg's story has many twists and turns and the mystery of her new home had me riveted. Added 16/12/2020 by Maria

Leaders like you : New Zealand leaders share stories of courage, failure and commitment / by Sceats, Nick,

Publication: . 168 pages : 30 cm.

Great collection, a must read. Added 21/08/2020 by Taimur

The sleeping beauty killer / by Clark, Mary Higgins,

Publication: . 301 pages ; 24 cm.

Unfortunately, after reading a couple of titles from this series, it's obvious in the first few pages who the 'Baddy' is going to be; but still a good read.

The secrets of strangers / by Norman, Charity,

Publication: . 340 pages ; 24 cm.

I think this is the saddest story I have ever read. Make sure you have a whole box of tissues!

Good me bad me / by Land, Ali,

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 Department of Sensitive Crimes / 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!

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

Do or die / by Gerritsen, Tess,

Publication: . 381 pages ; 24 cm.

Don't be fooled, these two stories are Romances with Murder overtones.

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
