Slightly disappointed, but still a good read. I really enjoy the Tracy Crosswhite series set in Seattle. And this one, although not my favourite so far, was still a good instalment in that series. Want to see what I thought of it? Want to see when I eventually understood the relevance of the title? Read on!Read More »
The team of bells at St. Ethelred church is the pride and glory of the idyllic Cotswolds village of Thirk Magna, together with the most dedicated bell ringers in the whole of England: the twins Mavis and Millicent Dupin.
As the village gets ready for the Bishop’s visit, the twins get overly-excited at the prospect of ringing the special peal of bells created for the occasion and start bullying the other bell ringers, forcing them to rehearse and rehearse . . . so much so that Joseph Kennell, a retired lawyer, yells at the sisters that he ‘felt like killing them’!

When the twins’ home is broken into one night and Millicent is found dead, struck from a hammer blow, suspicion falls onto the lawyer.

Hadley Beckett’s Next Dish is a new romantic comedy from the author of The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck and Wooing Cadie McCaffrey. It tells the tale of two chefs who start out as rivals and, through competitions, self reflection and plenty of banter, end up becoming a lot more than that.Read More »
Do you ever fall in love with the first book in a series and then worry that you won’t love the next book as much? What if the magic from the first book is missing? What if, the author has tried to retell the first story just with different names?
Worry not, none of this happens in Evie Dunmores brilliant new novel, A Rogue of One’s Own.Read More »
100 stars. I loved it.
I think this is one of my favourite reads this year. Bought for me as a Christmas present, it is always a gamble as to whether I’ll like it or not…. But bestie obviously knows me well, this was amazing!!

Ok, so I have had some time to think about this one and here are my thoughts. (I’d originally given this one 3.5 stars and I am going to change it to 2.5)Read More »
Another 4 star read for me. Possibly slightly on the lower end of a four than the previous two books, but still really really good!Read More »
I feel pretty bad, as I don’t remember the last time I gave a book a 1.5 star rating. I think that the main drag for me was that it isn’t my kind of book and I didn’t get along with the main/titular character.
My review is going to be a bit against the grain, as I know so many people are raving about this book. I don’t know if it is just on everyone’s radar at the moment and so people are bigging it up because it’s the ‘in’ book. But I’m not down for this hype.Read More »
Ok, how to convey that I loved this book! Like proper loved this book I reckon I could write a dissertation on this book pulling out all the different bits that I spotted and loved about this book!
I was sending a friend of mine gushing texts about this book and telling her that she NEEDs to read it, oh and I also stayed up till 2am reading this book! I couldn’t put it down; I finished it less than 48 hours after getting it.Read More »
