While it has its interesting moments, this was one of those books that disappointed me and one I really struggled to finish. I'm not quite sure what I expected, but it wasn't this.
I think I would have enjoyed it a lot more if it were a true work of fiction, with characters completely created from the author's imagination. There are some bibliographical references at the end of the novel about the books which inspired her to write this piece of… Continue

It's always a thrill to discover a new author that you want to tell others about. Elise Chidley's debut fiction novel, Your Roots are Showing, is newly released from Hachette Books.
By mistake Lizzie sends an email to her husband James that was meant for her sister Janie. Unfortunately it details how fed up and frustrated she is with her marriage. It was just venting to her sister, but James takes it to heart and before she knows it, Lizzie is separated. She rents a rundown cottage… Continue

This was another book that I thought would interest my husband, so when I was offered the chance to review this book, I took it. He read it and what follows is his review.
I have a simple rating for business books. It goes like this: Did I get something from the book that will increase my income by at least 5x the cost of the book. If so, then it was a worthwhile read.
I liked it. It’s not the most… Continue

When I was offered the chance to review this book, I asked Alan if he thought it sounded interesting to him. He said yes. So, what follows is his review.
As a quick read--this was o.k. The plot was a little simplistic, which kind of spoilt the ending. Some books you read wondering how it’s going to end--this one you read wondering how the author will get you to the ending you’ve already worked out way… Continue

The Solitary Summer by Elizabeth Von Armin is the perfect book to read on a lazy afternoon. This biographical work is short and quite light, though it touches on important themes throughout pages given almost entirely over to descriptions of her beautiful garden. It is written in a loose journal style but meanders as does her thinking, through the long and lovely summer.
Elizabeth decides in early May that she would like a summer of no commitments and no visitors so she could be… Continue
