A Street Cat Named Bob By James Bowen

When James Bowen found an injured, ginger street cat curled up in the hallway of his sheltered accommodation, he had no idea just how much his life was about to change. James was living hand to mouth on the streets of London and the last thing he needed was a pet.

Yet James couldn’t resist helping the strikingly intelligent tom cat, whom he quickly christened Bob. He slowly nursed Bob back to health and then sent the cat on his way, imagining he would never see him again. But Bob had other ideas.

Soon the two were inseparable and their diverse, comic and occasionally dangerous adventures would transform both their lives, slowly healing the scars of each other’s troubled pasts.

My Thoughts:

I couldn’t help sharing this picture of Bob and James together. How sweet are them to together?  I decided to read this book as a change from the books I normally read. This was a cracking little read that didn’t require too much of my attention. Having a cat myself and hearing all about Bob from people that had read this book I was excited to read it. What a lovely cat Bob is and James is such a lovely, caring person for taking him on. They are definitely friends for life. A lovely heart warming easy read that you will not want to put down.

Summer Secrets By Jane Green

Summer Secrets By Jane Green

jane green

June, 1998. At twenty-seven, Cat Coombs is struggling. She lives in London, works as a journalist, and parties hard. When she discovers the identity of the father she never knew she had, it sends her into a spiral. She makes mistakes that cost her the budding friendship of the only women who have ever welcomed her. And nothing is ever the same after that.

June, 2014. Cat’s life has come full circle. She wants to make amends to those she has hurt. Her quest takes her to Nantucket, the gorgeous New England island where the women she once called family still live. What Cat doesn’t realise is that these women, her real father’s daughters, have secrets of their own. As the past collides with the present, Cat must confront the darkest things in her own life and uncover the depths of someone’s need for revenge.

My Thoughts:

I have never read any of Jane Green’s books before. I thought I would like it as it is a chick lit that I would normally go for. But I felt it was very predictable, the ending wasn’t great and I just felt like I didn’t connect with any of the characters. The story deals with alcoholism in a very sensitive way but I wasn’t gripped at all.
