Alice is 35 and has it all. A handsome husband Joe, a beautiful house in Belgravia and designer clothes Sarah Jessica Parker would be proud to wear. So - she *should* be happy. But she isnít. She rolls around in her luxury house all day while hubby is out to work. Joe is a class one king rat in the womaniser department. Heís moulded Alice into what he wants her to look like Ė she straightens her curly hair, she dyes it blonde because he doesn't like it mousey and her expensive clothes are just an armour - she prefers jeans. He starts an affair with a work colleague and is found out by the company. To avoid further embarrassment they transfer him to another ... Read the complete review

I know we are told not to, but I am not ashamed to say I *do* judge books but their covers, so naturally when I saw this lively pink book in my sister?s room I was convinced I would enjoy reading it. The front cover is splashed with the author?s name in large letters and ?Spellbound? contained within a mystical pink explosion surrounded by a soft lemon hue. The top edge of the cover asks, ?What would you do to make your dreams come true?? Intrigued? Read on?. PLOT SYNOPSIS The prologue bodes well; it maintains my interest and sets the scene ...

Ok, I'll put my hands up to it. I judged the book by its cover. I saw this book, looking all pink and sparkly in the pile that my sister had put ready for the charity shop. (Pink and sparkly, unlike the picture of this book I might add, which appears to be some strange beige colour). The edition that I have is most definitely pink! I extracted it from the pile and started reading. ***The plot*** This story follows Alice and Joe, a married couple. Alice has fancied Joe since she was at school, where she was a quiet, mousy girl, who grew up to run a catering company. She met Joe and became a highly polished, blonde, well dressed, well heeled, ... Read the complete review

For a while now myself and my sister have had a book sharing agreement between ourselves, this in turn means that I usually have far more books of hers than she has of mine, with her reading almost twice I can manage a week. This however I have manage to almost correct, finally getting down to the bottom of the pile of books from her, with this gem being buried at the bottom, and after reading it wishing it had been at the top! The book in question is "Spellbound" by Jane Green. Alice has the perfect life, after blossoming from the proverbial ugly duckling, she has single handedly started her own upmarket catering company, has a ... Read the complete review

I was really pleased when my dad gave me a copy of Spellbound by Jane Green, as I had already read two of her books, Mr Maybe and Straight Talking, and thought both were excellent. When I read the blurb on the back of the book, I wasnít entirely sure this was going to be my sort of thing. I saw the word Connecticut and thought ĎOh noí because I am not a huge fan of novels set in America, probably, I think, because stories set in the UK are easier to identify with. I neednít have worried though, this book turned out to be up to Jane Greenís usual high standard of writing. This is the story of Alice Chambers. To the outside world, Alice is blissfully happy, ...
