I have a sticky note on my desk top of my PC and I see it every day when I log on..

I look forward to reading the reviews of winner, by then the Library should have more copies and I will order it.

Edit: sorry had my dumb hat on.. I can get that one.. it's The Beach Cafe that I want to know about.


Berona Report 22 Jul 2013 04:47

I have obtained Always You and The Detective's Daughter.


AnninGlos Report 22 Jul 2013 08:15

I have downloaded always you, The Beach cafe and Some day I'll find you.

I have just finished Forest of Sunflowers and it was an excellent book, I really enjoyed it and wanted it to go on, and on. Torey Hayden has a lovely way with words. Anyway, even though it wasn't chosen, I will review it in August.

Thanks Ann

I am already reading Sarah Challis's The Lonely Desert and I reckon it will be very good.

Am also reading an early one of Marcia Willets .. The first one in the Chadwick family.. it has been reissued at the library.. I have only read the last one in that series. So I am now hoping the middle two will turn up as well. Then I should have read all of hers.

Persie ..


TessAkaBridgetTheFidget Report 26 Jul 2013 22:33

Have requested (from Library)
Always You and The Beach Cafe.

Detective's Daughter is not yet available from Library.

Already have Buckingham Palace Gardens.

So should be okay this month.

Hope to hear soon

Yes of course you may Bridget. Will you have any problems getting the books to read? Do you have an e reader? Often the chosen books are available on the Kindle.
