Fantastic Fun Read.
The girls are off again, in Misbehaving in Miami (Summer Flings, Book 2) on the next leg of the round the world trip. And Poor Miami has to learn to cope with them. Again as this is a short story, i'm a little bothered about giving away to much, but again-- just brilliant.
A Great fun read.
Misbehaving in Miami continues on from where Trouble in Tinseltown finished. So with the girls in Miami, we just know that all they can have is fun, nothing will go wrong will it? And what is more fun than a drinking game, how can that be bad. And it can't be difficult to do with an Irish chick on side can it............ get reading and find out just what happens.
I'm hoping to read all the books in this series, and as they are all just short stories, once finished, i will have to read them all again but back to back, just to get the real feel for them again.
Trouble in Tinseltown
3 Friends set off on a round the world trip, starting off in LA. The story is full of fun, I could have imagined going on holiday with these girls (many years ago).
Ciara, Elle and Gem are just great character. Each one with their own individual personalities. As this is only a short story I really don't want to go into the story for fear of giving to much away.
So what I will say is it is a great fun, easy read. Sit back and get stuck in. you will not regrete it.
Part 1 of Summer Flings - a fun, flirty and laugh out loud rom com series of short stories.
Armed with a degree from Oxford that she doesn't have a clue what to do with, Ciara Bree convinces her two best friends, Elle and Gem to spend their first summer of freedom backpacking across the globe. Now it's time to shop, sunbathe, think about boys for a change, and party hard...
First stop: LA!
The girls hit Tinseltown for a few days of shopping, star spotting, and even a movie premiere!
But their plan to sneak into an exclusive celeb party in West Hollywood backfires. Elle's gorgeous older cousin, Zack, is called to the rescue and despite knowing she should stay away, Ciara just can't seem to resist him.
The ideal summer treat for those relaxing days soaking up the sun

My Review 4/5
This book is part of a series, by Nicola Doherty. The girls on tour series.
As it's only a short story I thought it would be a great read for when i had my breaks in work. And i ended up looking a little bit of a plonker with a stupid grin on my face while reading it.
This is just a great fun, lighthearted short story.
An ideal read if you have an hour spare, sat in the garden on a warm afternoon.
Poppy has headed off to Paris -working- with her work colleague Charlie. and as she hasn't had any romance for quite some time, she's a little more than out of practice.
She decides seducing Charlie would be a good idea.
Obviously things don't always go to plan.
So treat yourself to a copy and see just what Poppy does in Paris.
I am looking forward to reading more from this author, and as I have recently won a copy of if I Could Turn Back Time in a blog giveaway, I think I will be moving it up in my to read pile.
Until Death 4/5
Marriage is a prison for Kelly. Her controlling and manipulative husband Christos videos her in the house, has her followed and tracks her every move. She may be desperate to leave, but she's not stupid. If she runs, he'll make sure she never sees her children again. Christos has a mistress, Sylvie, keen to pander to his every whim and even keener to step into Kelly's shoes, should she ever vacate them. Kelly thinks it's stalemate for their twisted threesome, but one of Christos's container ships is about to dock in London with a secret cargo that will change all their lives forever. If Kelly is to escape, it will be in a way she never imagined, and people will" get hurt .
This is the first book I have read by Ali Knight. But I think it is safe to say it will not be the last.
A gripping tale of Marital abuse, and one womans struggle to come out the other end. With a fantastic story line.
I'm just annoyed with myself that it took me a while to get around to reading it, because once i had started it I really did enjoy it...
Behind Closed Doors
I have read all the Jessica Daniels series, and then I realized I hadn't read this one yet, so I got stuck in, In time for the new one coming out in 3 weeks. And i must say after just reading this one, i'm so glad i do not have long to wait for the next one.
After hiding away from troubles and worries, Jessica finally faces the world again, by going under cover into a house that recruits... well what do they recruit? Jessica is forced to face some of her demons to pull off this undercover mission, and can she come out a stronger person or is she lost forever?
I don't want to go into the story line to much for fear of giving away to much, what I can say is these books by Kerry Wilkinson just keep getting better and better, i'm not sure how he does it, but he's got his work cut out to make the next one as good as this or better. I hope he can pull it off, as the series is just fantastic.
You make a deal with the devil; you pay your dues…
Franny Doyle has always known that her father Patrick has been up to no good. After all you don’t become one of London’s number one gangsters without ruffling a few feathers along the way. Still, she adores her dad and she knows that he would lay down his life for her – she is his number one girl and he has taught her everything she knows.
But when something terrible happens to Patrick, Franny realises that he has some very dangerous enemies. Delving into Patrick’s past, Franny becomes involved in a high-stakes game. She’s not afraid. Patrick has taught her to be a fighter and she’s determined to make him proud, even if it means paying the ultimate price – her own life.
I have read and loved all of Jacqui Roses books to date. I am a big fan of hers, she's a brilliant author.
But for some reason, this one didn't get me like all the others right from the start, I found myself wondering at one point weather to carry on or not, but I did and i'm glad i stuck with it, I am unsure why i felt this way, maybe it was coming out of one book right into another.
The start of the book goes back in time, where we get the build up to the story and how things happened and why.
We are introduced to the characters and I think it's safe to say from early on you do develop the love for some and the hate for others. I always think if you can feel anything towards the characters in a book then the author has done their job and got you involved.
We start off with the younger characters in Ireland. and soon move on to them in the present day in London. How their lives started and how they have changed is fantastically put together.
As I said i am glad i continued to read this, and things did improve and I found myself getting into the book and story, more so when it arrived back to present time.
Then I found i didn't want to put the book down. In true Jacqui Rose style the book really took off. And I began to get really involved, really engrossed. I ended up thoroughly enjoying it.

John Quinn, an investigative journalist on England’s biggest-selling and most notorious tabloid newspaper, is about to write the story of his life – a kiss-and-tell with one of the country’s most powerful men at its heart. But the story dies when Lorna Thomas, the kiss in his kiss-and-tell, kills herself on a quiet country road.
Unable to accept her twin’s suicide, Laurie Thomas follows in her sister’s footsteps to London and to the heart of government. And as she becomes more involved in Lorna’s world, she grows more convinced than ever that Lorna did not take her own life. But if Lorna didn’t kill herself, who did?
Laurie Thomas Cannot accept that her Identical twin sister Lorna committed suicide. And sets about trying to live the life Lorna lived to find out just what happened. And if it wasn't suicide then what was it?
A lot of answers need answering, and Laurie get's the help from Lorna's last employer The Deputy Prime Minister.
But Lorna was having an affair, And was she really about to sell her kiss and tell story to journalist John Quinn. Quinn thinks once Lorna has killed herself that the story has gone with her, but could he be wrong. Could the story now be twice as juicy, and could it change the rest of his career.
I'm finding it difficult to write this without giving up to much of the story, I will say that I did enjoy the book, I thought it was very well written with a great plot. However at times I could have quite happily slapped the The Deputy PM right round the choppers. I guess this story also shows how Grief affects different people in different ways.
But just how far will you go to get the answer's you need?
A very enjoyable and easy read.
From the start this book really drew me in. Many times I sat and actually placed myself at the scene. I could see myself doing just what Sheila/Shayla was doing. I wiped my eyes when she was chopping onions, and felt nervous picking up a chicken. I really did like her character and all the way through I just kept wanting everything to go right for her.
Despite having a famous Father, she want's to do things of her own merit, and doesn't use his name. She really did seem like an individual person. Not a clone of everyone else.
I almost wanted to get on a plane and go straight to Ireland. I really did feel like i was there at times.
The characters are all believable I really did like them. A good mixture of people.
And as I tend to mainly read crime, this was a true refreshing change, A lighthearted fun read.
Highly recommend a great summer time read.
