If Mersey picks two different ones.. well we can have a go at anything.

Indian summer

The Knot

As we have all voted for entirely different books I suggest we read whichever ones we want to.

I would love to have voted for the Marcia Willetts one, until I saw the price (over £9 for the Kindle version is just too much) and it is only so far out in hard back.

It really doesn't work with so few of us so I think I will try it with just one book suggestion next time. If that doesn't work and if it takes so long to sort it next time I think it will be time to call it a day.

Anyway review date 23 May, please again put it in your diaries.

Thanks Glossie Ann,

Have read Indian Summer so will see what I can get amongst the others.

Edit: I looked up: " she only wore white" in the library and it was not there, tried the author and the book is called "She wore only white." Gotta get these words the right way round and I can get it..

Finally back to my computer, will see which books I can get and then choose.
Thanks Ann.
