Emmy Lake wants to be a war journalist and joins Woman’s Friend as a junior administrator as a step up in her career. However, it turns out that the role is in fact one of typing letters in response to the magazine’s problem page! Emmy cannot help but become emotionally involved, however, you can’t help but like her.
We are introduced to her best friend Bunty and fiancé William, her volunteer colleagues at the Fire Station where she mans the telephones on the night shift and her colleagues at Woman’s Friend.
This is an easy reading, feel good book that I read in just over a day. It gives you a small snapshot of the sort of problems that the people who had been left behind in war torn Britain would have experienced.
I rate this book 4 stars 🌟 🌟🌟🌟
Six friends and a dog enter the Standedge canal tunnel and only one person (Matthew) and the dog exit. Matthew is accused of causing the disappearance of his five friends.
Robin Ferringham is a writer and has written about the mystery disappearance of his wife. He receives a telephone call from Matthew who needs help to prove his innocence in exchange for information about Robin’s wife.
For me, this book seemed to drag and I found it confusing in the end with the tunnel entrances/exits etc.
I rate this book 2 stars 🌟🌟
Many thanks go to the author Chris McGeorge, NetGalley and the publisher Orion Publishing Group for a copy of this ebook in exchange for an independent review.
What a powerful book. It takes you straight into the current day lives of Misty and Karen and then back to their university days with their best friend Alex.
Misty and Karen both believe that they’ve seen Alex on a television news broadcast. But Alex died of anorexia whilst the girls were still at university.
Misty attends Karen’s 50th birthday party where she meets Tasha, Karen’s middle daughter. Misty is an eating disorder psychiatrist and spots some of the more obvious signs that Tasha has an eating disorder.
Tasha’s difficulties remain hidden until her elder sister calls Misty for help.
The book deals with the subject of anorexia so well. It’s not a subject I know much about and to be honest, not a subject I would choose to read about. However, I’m SO glad that I have read The Guilty Friend. It’s taught me a lot, particularly how fragile the mind can be for both boys and girls.
I rate this book 4 stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟
