A Baby at the Beach Cafe By Lucy Diamond

A Baby at the Beach Cafe By Lucy Diamond


Evie loves running her beach cafe in Cornwall but with a baby on the way, she’s been told to put her feet up. Let someone else take over? Not likely.

Helen’s come to Cornwall to escape the stress of city living. She hopes a seaside life will be the answer to all her dreams. When she sees a job advertised at the cafe it sounds perfect.

But the two women clash and sparks fly. . . and then events take a dramatic turn. Can the pair of them put aside their differences in a crisis?

My Thoughts:

I am a world book night giver today so I will be giving out this book to people who don’t normally read for pleasure or own books. If you want to know more see my previous post. I kept a copy for myself as I am a big fan of Lucy Diamond. Well I devoured it in one sitting, I  felt sad at the end that it had finished. It is a nice easy quick read one where you don’t have to think too much and one which I will remember. It is also part of the quick reads of 2016 and the best part of that is they only cost £1. I loved the story it made me think actually you know what if I wanted to I could do anything I want to do.  I have read many of Lucy’s books before and loved all of them. She is such a brilliant writer.

EENY MEENY BY M. J . Arlidge

EENY MEENY BY M. J . Arlidge

The girl emerged from the woods, barely alive. Her story was beyond belief. But it was true. Every dreadful word of it.

Days later, another desperate escapee is found – and a pattern is emerging. Pairs of victims are being abducted, imprisoned then faced with a terrible choice: kill or be killed.

Would you rather lose your life or lose your mind?

Detective Inspector Helen Grace has faced down her own demons on her rise to the top. As she leads the investigation to hunt down this unseen monster, she learns that it may be the survivors – living calling cards – who hold the key to the case.

And unless she succeeds, more innocents will die . .

My Thoughts:

Loved this book right from the start. Not a big fan on Thrillers but this is a definite must for people wanting to try a different genre. The characters were brilliantly strong and the M. J. has done well to incorporate all their different stories together without making it confusing. I loved the fact there were so many twists and turns. I didn’t expect what was coming next and was certainly surprised by what did happen. Brilliant ending and look forward to reading the next book as I have heard it is even better.
