Behold a Pale Horse

Behold a Pale Horse - Peter Tremayne I didn't finish this book.


Godplayer - Robin Cook quick easy read. What is the difference between God and a doctor? God doesn't think he's a doctor.

James Potter and the Curse of the Gate Keeper (James Potter, #2)

James Potter and the Curse of the Gate Keeper (James Potter, #2) -  Johnny Atomic, G. Norman Lippert I did not finish this book. It isn't as good as it's predecessor.

Touch & Go

Touch & Go - Lisa Gardner not as rivetting as other books I have read

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest (Millennium Trilogy Book 3)

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest - Stieg Larsson glad I'e finished the trilogy ,yet sad.

The Legacy: A Novel

The Legacy - Katherine Webb Plenty of twists and turns,two stories criss-crossing. First book of this author I have read. Make note to try others.

The Fifth Vial

The Fifth Vial - Michael Palmer read while on holiday

Naked in Death

Naked in Death - J.D. Robb read while on holiday

hats,coal and bloodshed

hats,coal and bloodshed - John D Austin this is a book about Atherstone and Mancetter and surrounding villages.It links the names of places and explains their origins. Also the names of streets etc are linked to past events, historical people both local and national. I found it interesting as my family comes from that area.Both sets of grandparents,my parents and my granddaughter are buried in the cemetry opposite St Peter's Church ,Mancetter. That is the church where I was married nearly 40 years ago.

The Chessmen

The Chessmen - Peter  May this is a brilliant trilogy. It has inspired me to find a pattern for a gansey with the Eriskay patterns

Women of the Cousins' War

The Women of the Cousins' War: The Duchess, the Queen and the King's Mother - Philippa Gregory, Michael Jones, David Baldwin These three historians endeavour to sort myth from fact concerning these influential women.

Lewis Man (Lewis Trilogy 2)

The Lewis Man - Peter  May This is a well written tale. The vocabulary used several steps up from the usual especially when memories are being related.
You can hear the ocean and the wind and imagine the bleakness of the land.
If you saw the characters you could recognise each one by the details of their stature and colouring.
This audio version is well narrated. The change of voices for each character varies by tone and accent. Accents vary depending on location of individuals and their origins. It was a joy to listen to. I shall be playing this one again

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry: A Novel

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry: A Novel - Rachel Joyce This is an incredible book. Full of feelings and emotions as the result of days gone by. The ending is expected and unexpected. The audible edition I listened to was narrated/read by Jim Broadbent and he is brilliant!!

Modigliani Scandal

The Modigliani Scandal - Ken Follett Like he said ,its light and fluffy but enjoyable


Zoo - Michael Ledwidge, James Patterson This is quite thought provoking as to what might just go wrong with our relationship with animals,wild or domestic.

Murder on the Home Front

Murder on the Home Front - Molly Lefebure This is written in an easy to read manner and is laced not with just murder,mayhem and blood but with a droll sense of humour. She tells not just how thw sights she sees at murder scenes and in the morgue but also how the continuing years of war affected her in particular and the rest of the country . I read this very quickly and plan to re-read Forty years of Murder which is Professor Keith Simpson's autobiography
