    A red sticker on the book covers states “As good as Martina Cole or your money back”. I hadn't read anything by Martina Cole and hadn't paid for the book, so this was a slight puzzle. I can't make comparisons with Martina Cole, but can describe the story (without giving too much away, I hope) and state that I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    This book is dedicated to the author’s grandchildren, I am guessing it is a story she developed for them and at some point some one has said ‘What a good story you should get that published’

    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.

    This is described, by the author, as an unofficial guide to the first two stages of Tour de France 2014. It's a useful and attractive guide to the roads and scenery that will be tackled by cyclists on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th July 2014. It's a small book (18 x 12.5 x 1cm) and hardbacked, designed to fit in a cycle jersey back pocket.

    ‘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.
