What Dubh portrayed was an accurate description of sex and relationships in 2017 from a female perspective. But what she did even more brilliantly was help to erase the feelings of shame that women who have open and healthy sexual relationships are expected to feel.
I have to recommend this book to you. It is an addictive thriller you just don't want to miss.
You know, I haven't read some good chick-lit in a while. I get sent many books to review but rarely in this genre, and the books I purchase myself all seem to be of a thriller/mystery nature. So, to receive a copy of The Law of Attraction by Roxie Cooper was a breath of fresh air.
"Never judge a book by its cover." Agreed. But sometimes it just can't be helped. When I was asked if I wanted to review City of Toys I agreed. The blurb sounded interesting but the front cover didn't leave me expecting much. Boy, was I wrong!
What I found really interesting, though, is that Alec Birri - who was a commander of a top secret unit in the Military - so actually he’s a real life ‘M’ from the James Bond films.
Anyone who has an interest in spirits will only be inspired to learn more about this alternative world, while those who don't believe will still find themselves with a pretty amazing story to enjoy.
OK, let's start with what I know for certain about this book. Placed in the 17th century, and in Amsterdam, I really liked the setting. It showcased the city for what it was back then and I enjoy learning snippets of history by reading fiction.
