A novel about grief and rebuilding which could border on the depressive but actually is so beautifully written and so tenderly handled it is uplifting, funny, warm and eventually joyous. The style completely wins you over, you feel for Sophie all the way, she’s quite a woman and this is a wonderful first novel.Comparison: Adriana Trigiani, Fannie Flagg, Rebecca Wells.Similar this month: Nicholas Sparks, Lou Wakefield.
One of the best of its kind, an exciting quest thriller with a diving expert and underwater photographer as its hero, so lots of interesting detail in its non-stop action plot. Highly recommended.Comparison: Clive Cussler, Gordon Kent, Dale Brown.Similar this month: Vince Flynn, Duncan Falconer.
Itâ€™s not often we at Lovereading travel into the territory of promoting a title that comes in unsolicited from a self-published author but this is one that really caught our eye. Rivenaes has real talent for dialogue and for gripping the reader throughout with a complex yet utterly riveting plot presented in effortless fashion. He's created some brilliantly drawn characters you will care about and some terrific interplay between them. It is a beautifully written, multi-faceted, multi-layered political action thriller, much like Tom Wolfeâ€™s Bonfire of the Vanities and written with a multitude of ingredients including drama, humour, love, action and suspense making it much more than a thriller. It's intriguing, fulfilling and ultimately consuming and will linger on in your psyche long after youâ€™ve finished it.
Winner of TV & Film Book of the Year at the Galaxy British Book Awards 2007.This had been made into a Hollywood blockbuster, but the book is miles better! Set in the cut-throat fashion industry, the main character Andrea lands a job as assistant to a powerful fashion editor who turns out to be a bit of a nightmare to work for. Anyone who's ever had an unreasonable boss will see the funny side. The author, Lauren Weisberger, used to be the assistant to the editor of Vogue, so it wouldn't be all that surprising if a lot of the book was based on personal experience.
