Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

Sick of Shadows by M. C. Beaton

It would seem that even a pretend engagement cannot keep Lady Rose Summer from trouble. Bored with endless parties, teas and balls, she befriends Dolly Tremaine, a beautiful young girl newly arrived from the country and overwhelmed by the demands of the Season. Their friendship is cut tragically short, however, when Dolly is found dead in the river, with flowers in her hair and blood on her breast. Rose immediately summons her fiance, investigator Captain Harry Cathcart, to help solve the mystery of Dolly's death - and to keep her from becoming the murderer's next victim.


About the Author

She has written many detective and romance novels alongside having an illustrious career on Fleet Street. Already a household name and, according to Anne Robinson, a ‘national treasure’, she is ranked among John Grisham and Maeve Binchy as a heavyweight of the publishing world. She divides her time between Paris and a village in the Cotswolds that is very much like Agatha's beloved Carsely.

    Have you thought, my dear, as you hitch up your support hose over your hairy legs that young people might not no want to be around you?

    Have you come across robust ladies of later years, bragging, "My dear, I simply cannot bear to be around old people"

    No wonder Crumblies like me get damned as boring, always whining about their ailments. It's because we have such a lot of them.
