When I try a new author and am not impressed with their debut novels, I tend to ignore later releases because I don't want to waste time reading a book that isn't going to be any good. I know I should give them another try, but more often than not, I don't. However, when I was trying to choose a book to make up my '3 for 2' offer in Waterstones, my fiance picked this book up and said it looked like my sort of thing. I recognised the author straight away and almost dismissed it, but the title and blurb on the back grabbed my attention and I decided to give Lucy Dawson's work another go.

If I'm honest this is a book that I'd never actually heard of before, although I had heard of the author; it was bought because on my home page on amazon as I'd bought something else apparently related to this book it was recommended to me. After clicking on it I had a quick read of the synopsis and was happy to see that you could buy it used with postage very cheaply.
