On a recent library visit I found myself rapidly grabbing about five books after reading only the first couple of lines on the back of the book. I'm not one of these people that spends ages deciding if to read a book or not - if the cover looks appealing and the first couple of lines of blurb on the back doesn't bore me then I'll happily take it without a second thought. The front cover and the description of Emily Barr's "Out of My Depth" caught my attention and seemed quite interesting, while clearly avoiding the typical romantic comedy style books that seem to prevail these days. The Author Emily Barr is quite a successful author, ... Read the complete review

I recently was lucky enough to be sent 'The Sisterhood' by Emily Barr to review for www.thebookbag.co.uk. I enjoyed it so much that I was immediately on the look out for more books by this fantastic author and came across 'Out of my Depth' - I was not disappointed as this was another fabulous read! Out of My Depth tells the story of four former school friends who meet up years later for a reunion. Right from the start the reader is aware that something dark and sinsiter occurred in their past which means that this reunion is never going to be easy - but this is at first only hinted at and gradually through the book the truth comes out.

"Sleep-sabotagingly moreish" Nicely put I'd say! This is another dabble of mine into the unknown, unknown author that is. I had never read a book by Emily Barr when I spotted this reduced to £2 in Morrisons last week. I know we aren't meant to 'judge a book by its cover' but I can't help it, this cover is nicely designed and it looks like it should be a good book! The story starts with Susie, a successful artist living in the French countryside with her perfect boyfriend. She decides off the top of her head to have a reunion weekend at her house with her three best friends from school; Amanda, Izzy and Tamsin. More ... Read the complete review

This is a review of the book 'Out of my Depth' by Emily Barr. It starts off with the highly successful artist Susie, living in her beautiful French home who decides it's time 10 years from leaving school to invite the old gang to show them how well she's done. ***Now and then*** The book flits between the present and past at their all girls' school, their personalities and how they've changed over the years. The thin become fat and the fat become thin etc. Some have got families, some have got divorces. But everyone makes the effort to attend the reunion. **What's the sub plot?** You realise there is something being held back, about one ... Read the complete review
