Review – Outraged by Ashley ‘Dotty’ Charles

Outraged will make you consider your social media usage and reflect on where you place your support.
Serious stuff, No? Actually yes and no. All this information is cleverly encased in wit, humour and perfect examples to make you laugh out loud. Well done Dotty.

Review – The Last Wild by Piers Torday

The animals are the stars of The Last Wild. You almost don’t notice the lack of humans in this book as the animals are marvellous characters with amusing personalities. Plus when we do get to meet humans, they’re not all that nice.

Review – The Babysitter by Phoebe Morgan

A woman is dead, a baby is missing, an affair is revealed. Two families are in turmoil. Interspersed with the dread over what has happened to the missing baby, The Babysitter shows us real people making poor choice for greedy, selfish and opportunistic reasons. A nice mystery to cosy up with.
