Jana DeLeon – Louisiana Longshot

Fortune Redding is for all intents and purposes an international super-spy, jetting off on missions all around the world. But when her cover is blown on a mission in the middle east, and it looks like the leak was from within her own office, she has to get way off the radar before she gets herself killed. Luckily for her, her boss has a relative who has just passed away, with a niece about Fortune’s age. The niece was supposed to be...

Nicola May – Star Fish

I’ve read a few other Nicola May books before and I’ve had a bit of a mixed bag really, loving a couple of them, and not really getting along with the others. This is the last one that I had left to read on my Kindle, so I was curious to see which camp this one fell in. My first impression was that the characters were rather stereotypical, a rather plain looking woman who doesn’t rate herself very highly, with a gorgeous gay...

Review: A.R. Wise – 314

I hadn’t really intended on reading this book, but I forgot to take Harry Potter to work with me today, so I downloaded a free kindle book to kill the time before work and my lunch break. I didn’t think I’d finish it, but I think it was only 200 pages, so it was gone in no time. About 3 pages into the book, I actually contemplated stopping immediately, because what I was reading was so disturbing that it was making me feel...

Review: Jane Costello – All The Single Ladies

This book was read in Kindle format over many quick lunch breaks at work, usually during the 20 minutes it takes me to eat my lunch before I’m back at work again. As you can probably tell from the title, it’s typical chick-lit, but I can’t seem to help myself. Samantha Brook’s boyfriend Jamie has just decided that he’s booked a one way flight to South America, leaving their relationship behind because he needs some...

Review: Nicola May – Better Together

I was quite disappointed with this book. I couldn’t relate to the main character, she seemed very flighty and changed her mind way too many times for my liking. Everything in the book seemed too ‘convenient’; Jess would change her mind, and everything would instantly fall into place to make everything perfect for her. I also found the dialogue quite stilted, I don’t know if it was just because I was reading a kindle copy...

Review: Nicola May – The School Gates

After the success of the last Nicola May book, I decided to download her other three books from Amazon, they were all less than £1.50 on Kindle so I figured it was a bit of a bargain! The first one I read was this, The School Gates. My first impression was that there were too many characters, but I think that was because before the first chapter had started, you were introduced to each of the families one at a time. I didn’t think...

Review: Louise Douglas – Missing You

This is beginning to become a bit of a habit, another book bought on Kindle because it was cheap. It feels kind of like I’m cheating on my books, but I made a new year’s resolution to stop buying more physical books because I have absolutely no space left in my room for any more books, I’ve had to start putting them in boxes to make room. Regardless, this book was actually pretty surprising. From the title, I was expecting it...

Review: Hilary Boyd – Thursdays in the Park

This book was an impulse buy after I got a free kindle book credit from Amazon. It was a very limited selection available so I decided this one was the best of the bunch. I actually quite enjoyed it, it was a very easy read. The book was about a woman named Jeanie, stuck in a loveless marriage and coming up to retirement age, when her husband decides that he wants to move from North London to Somerset. Without consulting Jeanie or listening to...
