I live in the beautiful Highlands of Scotland with my husband. I like chocolate, whisky, my Kindle, massed pipe bands, long leisurely lunches, chocolate, going places in my campervan, eating pizza in Italy, summer nights that never get dark, wood fires in winter, chocolate, the view from the study window looking out over the Moray Firth and the Black Isle to the mountains beyond. And chocolate. I dislike driving on motorways, cooking, shopping, hospitals.

The fourth and penultimate part of this fine urban fantasy series, and finally we’re getting some answers. I didn’t enjoy the third book, Rivers of Hell, quite as much as the previous two, partly because it dropped a lot of interesting plot threads and went haring off down a very big rabbit hole – to Hell, in fact – and partly because, in the underworld, heroine Lexi’s most interesting attribut...

Fortunate Wager by Jan Jones

Book 3 of the Newmarket series, and this is the first that really does depend on the horse racing town for both setting and plot. It’s a corker of a story, and after some slight wobbles in book 2, this one is right back on form - a believable hero an ...more

Another great read in the series. This works well as a stand-alone but the early chapters would be an easier read coming straight after book 1, The Kydd Inheritance, or maybe it’s just me that forgets who’s who in no time flat. It doesn’t quite have ...more

I loved this book. I didn’t think I was going to like it, because the prologue is a grim war scene, but this is merely a brief backdrop to the main story. Yes, it’s important, but the author never dwells on the details, and so it becomes, as it shoul ...more

When I read Georgette Heyer’s works for the first time, many moons ago, this was very much my favourite. It’s always nerve-wracking returning to a much-loved book after a long time, but almost from the first page, I knew my memory had not let me down ...more

Frederica by Georgette Heyer

After a run of 5* Heyers, this one lost a star for a rash of silliness. Too many of her books depend for their climactic disaster on characters behaving in positively bird-witted ways, without an ounce of common sense, and so it is here. Fortunately, ...more

Probably not accurate to say that I enjoyed this, but it was eye-opening, for sure. The film was interesting too, and very well done, but, as always, there's more depth and detail in the book. A clear-eyed view of early-onset Alzheimer's, and its eff ...more

The Gentleman Physician by Sally Britton

This book was both better and worse than its predecessor. Better, because the historical accuracy was quite impressive - the author has done her homework in a number of areas. Worse, because somehow it lost the freshness and emotional depth I so enjo ...more

There’s lots to love about this, but also some slightly wobbly aspects. On the one hand, the romance is exquisitely well-drawn, perfect in every detail. On the other, the surrounding plot is fairly clunky, and there are some technical issues that int ...more

“The monsters are gone."
"Really?" Doubtful.
"I killed the monsters. That's what fathers do.”
F K Wallace

Michael J. Sullivan
“I just want to say, for the record, as far as Royal protectors go, you're not very good."
"It's my first day," Royce replied dryly.
"And already I am trapped in a timeless prison. I shudder to think what might have happened if you had a whole week.”
Michael J. Sullivan, The Crown Conspiracy

Clara Benson
“I set fire to his bed one night while he was in it. I’d be obliged if you wouldn’t mention that, though, as they never found out who did it, but the police got involved and things were rather unpleasant at school for a while.”
Clara Benson, The Incident at Fives Castle

Clara Benson
“uncomfortably conscious that women of her age did not generally hide in cupboards drinking whisky”
