Beauty by Louise Mensch

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Set in the beauty industry, this is the rags-to-riches story of Dina, an unloved child who through grit, determination and flair eventually overcomes her setbacks and makes good. She is sabotaged all the way by bitter, jealous people. A lovely character whom you root for all the way through. This is a surprisingly good read, a cut above the norm.

Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)



For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.
