The majority of my book case at home is taken up by thrillers and crime novels. However, occasionally I do like a good 'Chick Lit' book to break up all the suspense and tension :) I picked up a copy of Tell Me Something by Adele Parks from a second hand book shop. I have read a couple of Park's other novels and so was drawn to her name initially and then after reading the blurb on the back decided I would give it a go. The story, without giving too much away, is based around Elizabeth - a die hard romantic who wants for nothing but a handsome Italian husband and lots of babies with said husband. It seems her wish is soon granted as she meets and ... Read the complete review

I am not a big chick lit reader (I much prefer a juicy horror, or historical fiction), but when stuck with no book to read, I often pick up whatever is currently in the latest book displays in Asda/WHSmiths. As a result, i have read all of Adele Parks books, so quite happily picked up her latest. The plot. ~~~~~~ Elizabeth is 30 something, married and a bit aimless as far as careers go. She has only ever had one burning ambition...to marry an Italian, move over there, and to have babies. She has suceeded in marrying the Italian, and moving to his mother country, but the baby issue is coming less easily. After six years of ... Read the complete review

When she eventually meets Roberto, all her dreams come true. That is until they have trouble creating all those gorgeous bambinos they dreamed of.

This is the first book I've read by Adele Parks, I have heard of her as an author and found her reviews to always have been fantastic, so when I saw 'Tell me Something' on the shelves I thought I had to give it a try. The cover makes it clear it's obviously a chick-lit book. I am not a huge fan of chick-lit books, as I find them a bit samey, but they are easy read and a nice break from books with maybe a slightly heavier plot line, so I picked this one up. The cover boasts "Another gem from Parks" by Heat Magazine and a 5* rating, so I thought this is definately going to be a good one! The story is about Elizabeth. She's a 30-something ...

I bought this in Sainsburys, when it had been mispriced down to a £1. It was definitely worth it! Adele is almost back to her best with this entertaining book. Elizabeth has always wanted two things...a sexy Italian husband and lots of babies, and when she married the handsome but moody Roberto, she thought her dreams had come true. Years have passed, though, and she hasn't managed to conceive...the couple just seem to be padding on in their world, with no inkling of a child. Until Roberto loses his job, and decides its time he went home to Italy to take over the family business... Elizabeth is obsessed with the idea of warm days and vine yards, ...
