In The Stars Part I: Capricorn–Gemini (Hiding Behind The Couch #4)

4.5  ·  Rating Details ·  10 Ratings  ·  4 Reviews
Some things are just meant to be, or sometimes it seems that way. Like old uni pals inexplicably moving to your hometown, or realising that your childhood best friend is the love of your life, or landing a star role in a hit TV series that could well be your autobiography.

Fate, karma, written in the stars, or just bizarre quirks of coincidence?

For better or worse, the even

I realised something quite pertinent when I picked up In The Stars I by Debbie McGowan; I'd neglected some very good friends for too long.

I'm not refering to my favourite author, but rather the characters she has created. I say created, really what I mean is who she has injected into my life. These people are as real as any you will ever meet face to face, and like the best of friendships, they don't care how long you don't see them for, the moment they're in front of you it's a comfortable and

This is the first of a two part story available from January 1st 2014, which follows on from The Harder They Fall and First Christmas.

In The Stars (Parts I and II) follows 'The Circle' through a year in their lives, and as such is structured differently from the first three novels in the series, with 12 sections, each denoted by a sign of the zodiac (6 in each of the two instalments). Within each section the chapters have proper titles (rather than just numbers), many sharing the titles of the

I have been reading this, on and off, for quite a few weeks. It took me quite a while to get into because I didn't know any of the characters, but as the book progressed they were so well drawn that I got to know them as well as the author. Real life and real people, that's what I got from this book.

part 1 of the next chapter in our 'friends' lives. I'm sure the author has actually met all these people at some point as she creates such real people. Things are about to change in everybodys lives. some things are positive and some things aren't. the circle will never be the same again!!!

Author, publisher, social scientist. My academic specialism is gender and sexual politics and identity, so you can expect this to crop up now and then in my writing, too! Not in an 'in your face' kind of way - subtlety wins hearts and minds.

I live in Lancashire, UK, with family and rescued dogs. It's green and pleasant, and we get long, long, lovely perfumed days in late spring / early summer. My

“In his dreams—not the scariest thing in the world, a waterslide. Some of his clients told of nightmarish chases, being pursued by fantastic and deadly creatures, or of being buried alive, or falling forever. Others...weren’t even safe during the hours of wakefulness. A waterslide, Joshua? Must do better.” 0 likes
