So to get back on track...Books for March!

Abby Cooper: Pyschic Eye by Victoria Laurie
Psychic turned dectective in this US book. Interetsing characters and not too predictable, although I did guess who did it well before the end. Will definately look at the next in the series...

Beach Babylon
Little disappointing after I enjoyed Hotel Babylon last year, but now after a bit of thought I shouldn't be too surprised as after all it's more of the same just with sun and sand. And that about sums it all up!

The School for Husbands
I love her other books but found this one a bit flat...probably because I felt sorry for the husband and thought Sophie needed to get real rather than him! Also the mother interferring was sooo unbelievable, it was all a bit too contrived, even for chick-lit.

My Best Friend's Life by Shari Low
Okay, so I did find some sections funny and it was a quick read, but over all it was a bit seedy and to go from frump to complete sex queen just by living in London (as if, or I wish?!) I don't need threesomes and girl on girl action in my chick-lit either.

The Glassblower of Murano
I loved this and am looking forward to her new book that's out soon. It's very gentle and not an awful lot happens, but loved the setting and the back story of the glassmakers...reminded me of The island, which was one of my better reads a couple of years ago.

The Love of my Life by Louise Douglas
Brilliant! Beautifully written and sensitive. Didn't want to get to the end.

Agatha Raisin and the Love from Hell by MC Beaton
James turns out to be just as cold as predicted and joins a monastery (honest!) Agatha flails around as usual with Charles in tow...one of the best ones of the series and now we need a worthy man for Agatha to pine for in the next one!

Love Potions by Christina Jones
The girl who didn't get her man in Seeing Stars gets another chance through aromotherapy. More of the same - well written, although she's not my favourite heroine, but pleasant.
