Re: What book are you reading now?

A complete change for me now.
Last night I started Joan Collins book called 'Star Quality'

It's about a kitchen maid who has a beautiful singing voice.
She gets discovered and becomes a star.

I'm enjoying it so far...

Re: What book are you reading now?

I also have just read a book which I normally would not have chosen but whilst browsing in a charity book shop A cover caught my eye so I flicked through the pages and was hooked immediately..so bought it. Light reading for the beach and very enjoyable.

It is The Duchess by Danielle Steel.

Angelique Latham grew up at the magnificent Belgrave Castle with her father, the Duke of Westerfield, after the death of her mother. But when he dies, her half-brothers brutally deny her very existence and send her out into the world alone.

At eighteen, Angelique has a keen mind, remarkable beauty and an envelope of money her late father pressed upon her. Unable to secure employment, Angelique desperately makes her way to Paris. To survive, she will need all her resources - and one bold stroke of fortune.

Angelique takes an unfamiliar and unimaginable path in setting up what becomes a highly successful business. But she lives on the edge of scandal; can she ever make a life for herself?

From England to Paris and New York, Danielle Steel paints a captivating portrait of a woman of unquenchable spirit in The Duchess.

Just picked up a copy of "Day of the Dead" by Nicci French.

And I'm excited. I've enjoyed this whole Frieda Klein series.

I had no sympathy for the main character - her friend must have been a saint to let her stay in her flat - getting drunk, being sick all over the place....

The other two women seemed to be unstable too!

It was alright but not one I could say I enjoyed.
It's one I enjoyed ... the underlying spookiness.
