    This is a challenging read, a psychological thriller, a first novel written by a clinical psychologist. So, knowing little about the subject myself, I assume it's a trustworthy account of aspects of psychotherapy. It's a complex story, involving flashbacks, plus action in the present is occurring in two places.

    ‘At the age of four Clover chooses her own name. Aged six she falls in love with her best friend, James, with whom she happily spends all her time’ and so the story begins. Not so much a love story, as a story about love.

    The novel is set initially in Grand Cayman, a Caribbean island which remains a British territory; as such it was seen as an ideal place to become an offshore financial centre. We are given a window in to the life of the expatriates on the island, bankers, accountants, trust managers and a few tax exiles. We also get a glimpse of the island population who support the wealthy the ethos being very much old colonialism. Set against this back drop we have Clover and the love of her life James, two privileged children in a seemingly heavenly setting.

    A Cat, a Hat and a Piece of String
    by Joanne Harris is a wonderful collection of interlinked short stories. They link to each other as well as to her other published works. Sometimes going as far as being a sequel other times a simple nod and cameo appearances. These short stories cover a variety of themes rather than being a collection of thrillers or love shorts, which alongside the fact that each is about 10 pages in length, maintained my interest even on my most distracted of days. From little old ladies causing mischief to train station cafés and the strong lure of the internet and social networks, this book covers a little bit of just about everything and adds an unexpected twist.
