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,

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

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

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.

The things you do for love / by Crowther, Rachel,

A good yarn about family dynamics. I enjoyed it and would describe it as a good holiday read. Will look for more by this author. Lynne

Gardenista / by Slatalla, Michelle,

Publication: . 108 pages : 25 cm

This was a refreshing new look at garden landscapes and wonderful gardens. I would recommend this book to any gardening friends as a great ideas book and coffee table volume which you want to keep picking up to look at. Many are American gardens which we don't usually see. Thanks for purchasing this for the collection.

Dark heart / by Park, Tony,

Publication: Sydney, N.S.W. : Pan Macmillan, 2012 . 435 p. : 24 cm. Date: 2012
