The Dream House by Rachel Hore 11

We could go back to having a revote on the first choices but that does cut down the availability of books. Please try and read at least one of the first three, more if you can.

I will definitely read Behind the scenes and the dream house as I already have them. I hope also to read Ravenscliffe.

Review date (please make a note) 31 March 2013. :-)

OK Tess good luck, good luck with the charity shops Pammy, you might find the Kate Atkinson.


TessAkaBridgetTheFidget Report 18 Feb 2013 00:32

Ifneither of the books that I requested from the Library have come in yet, I may try the local charity shop.

It has quite a good selection (and is closer than the library).
