First, I want to say that I haven't read any of the previous books
ináThe Memoirs of Lady Trent

some time. As a fantasy fan can't Read more...

couple that has gone missing and the cops are not doing a
thing to find them since they don't suspect a crime has been

To be honest, I thought MOTHERS AND OTHER STRANGERS was a
least that is the feeling I got from the book's blurb. The
first thing the blurb says about the book is:
"My father proposed to my mother at gunpoint when she was
nineteen, and knowing that Read more...
THE LIGHTKEEPER'S DAUGHTERS is a book that I felt from
the beginning was just my kind of book. I love books with
dual storylines. Also, I was quite taken with
the cover and blurb.
THE LIGHTKEEPER'S DAUGHTERS is about two twin sisters that
were born at the
beginning Read more...

First I want to say that I really need to read EVGENY
ONEGIN. I've seen the movie with Ralph Fiennes and Liv Tyler
and it's a fabulous movie. And, I own the book. I just
haven't read it. However, after reading this book I truly
need to Read more...
THE COTTINGLEY SECRET is the first book I have read by Hazel
Gaynor. I was intrigued by the idea of the book, about the
cousins that took the Cottingley photographs of fairies (you
can google Cottingley fairies to see the photographs

Flora swore she would never go back home to Mure, the little
Scottish island where she grew up. Instead, she settled in
London, working and enjoys the life there. Well, enjoy is a
bit far-fetched, but she has a great friend, Kai, at work
and a crush on her Read more...
I think it's very brave to take on a beloved classic and do
a modern remake. Personally, I was curious to see how Anna
Todd's version would turn out to be. I have not read the
original novel, only seen movie versions, so I do not have
to Read more...
THE PARIS SECRET is such a fabulous book. From the start,
the story engrossed me as Flora, a fine art agent from
London, arrived in Paris together with her boss to visit an
apartment that has been locked since World War II. What
secrets does the apartment have? Why has Read more...

characters take the front Read more...
It's probably not wise to start a new book
the latest book, especially when it's the 24th book in
the series. However, that's my special talent, and
sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't Read more...
Kelley Armstrong's CITY OF THE LOST was a book did not
really live up to my expectations. I hoped for a more
thrilling story. However, that didn't mean that I didn't
like the book, but after waiting a year to read it and
really looking forward to Read more...

investigating an ancient codex that Read more...
Urban Fantasy is a favorite genre of mine and the
Slim series felt like just the series for
me. Now, this is book nine and perhaps it's not wise to
start a series with a book so far Read more...
THE WAGES OF SIN is a historical fiction that has just
the right ingredients for me. We have a strong heroine
with a past that haunts her, a murder mystery and just
the right amount of romance, which for me is pretty
little. I love it when you can feel Read more...
The gorgeous cover of THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IN
FLORANCE caught my eyes a couple of months ago and the
book's description about the muse of Botticelli who
inspired him to paint The Birth of Venus sounded very
intriguing. I love reading historical fiction about real
people and I Read more...
