Cyprus Life – in pictures

My new life in Cyprus in images and words. I'm a British 50 something female, originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) and came to live in Limassol, Cyprus in March 2004. This is my photo blog about my new life as an expat on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. Plus other things which catch my attention every once in a while…. Enjoy!

Book Review: The Forgotten


The Forgotten by David Baldacci
The Forgotten by David Baldacci
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Not quite as good as the first “Puller” book

After reading the first John Puller book I was obliged to hunt down the second in this series.
I wasn’t disappointed but I didn’t enjoy it quite so much as Zero Day (the first book by David Baldacci to introduce his character, Puller).

However, it started out good and there was a story running all the way through it but it wasn’t quite so believable as Zero Day although we’re all fully aware that this kind of stuff goes on but perhaps not on such a grand scale.
I wasn’t so sure about the “twist” near the end and it’s this that turned me against it.

I did like the character and if you’re a fan of Jack Reacher, I’m sure you will enjoy it too.

But my tip would be to read Zero Day first.

David Baldacci’s answer to Jack Reacher

I really enjoyed this book and it was recommended to me by a colleague.
I agree with my friend Jani, the main character is definitely of the “Reacher” genre as created by Lee Child and I also fell for John Puller for all the same reasons. So much so that I had to hunt down “The Forgotten” being the next “Puller” book.
I’ve read that one too!
Great characters, good descriptions, excellent pace throughout the book.
Love these and I hope David Baldacci will write more in this series.

Keep ‘em coming please!

Book Review: Dead Money


Dead Money
Dead Money by Ray Banks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Life as a gambler has a few problems…

I got this one after reading a preview and because it sort of fits in a little with my job.
I enjoyed the writing style, the story moved along quickly enough and liked the characters.
I would definitely try another book by Ray Banks.
