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
Skinny Dip by Carl Hiaasen
ReviewsChaz Perrone is a marine biologist, responsible for monitoring the pollution in the Everglades. The only trouble is, Chaz knows zilch about marine biology and is in the pay of unscrupulous tycoon Red Hammernut. Red's agricultural empire is pumping gallons of phosphates into the Florida swamps ; it's Chaz's job is to doctor the figures to keep the environmental agencies happy. But when Joey, his streetwise, beautiful wife, discovers finds him falsifying water samples, Chaz can only think of one way to shut her up - murder. Hatching the perfect plan, he whisks Joey away for a romantic anniversary cruise, and deftly tips her over the side in the middle of the night, leaving her to be devoured by sharks. Joey, however, is made of sterner stuff; after hours clinging onto a bale of Jamaican pot, she is rescued by Mick Stranahan, an ex-cop who has carved out a solitary life for himself on an island off the Florida coast. Joey is mad - so mad that despite Stranahan's reservations, she is determined to get even - and make her husband's life a living hell. What follows is grade one Hiaasen - a roller coaster ride, packed with hilarious characters ranging from the pathetically priapic Chaz to the lugubrious snake-obsessed Scandinavian detective, Rolvaag, and Tool, a hirsute giant with a morbid fascination for roadside memorials. A winning combination of biting satire and environmental thriller, with more coils in the plot than one of Rolvaag's pythons, Skinny Dip is Hiaasen at his best. (Kirkus UK)
