Meet Miranda. She is a cheerful and happy-go-lucky single girl who just happens to be a dominatrix with a dungeon in her flat where she services clients with flogging and extreme correction and (if she's lucky) gets the occasional slave to pay her for the honour of doing her vacuuming.

Loved this, although the language and sexual.content are quite explicit. Loved all the characters. Have already downloaded series 2 and am anticipating series.3,4,5, and 6, hopefully.

Follow Andrew Scott (BAFTA-winner, Sherlock, James Bond: Spectre) and Freema Agyeman ( Sense8, Doctor Who) as they race against time to solve this multi-layered political thriller. On a sullen, cloudy July day, ten years since 7/7, the confident and optimistic British Prime Minister is visiting a charity in East London. It's just two months after the general election which saw John Campbell's government returned to power with a clear majority, the economy is on the mend and the coalition is fast becoming a bad memory.

In this study of Genesis, Pastor Skip Heitzig presents an in-depth examination and fresh perspective of familiar stories like the creation, Adam & Eve, Noah and the Flood, the call of Abraham, and Sodom and Gomorrah. This series offers solid information to equip believers with truth in today's battle against the lies of evolution, the basic goodness of man, and a "fairy tale" approach to the Bible.

Difficult one. Definitely more sermon than in depth study. Interesting nonethless. more church service than literal study. I found myself really engrossed and enjoying it at times but found him very condescending and mocking on occasion which kinda spoiled it. But there's a lot of good stuff in there.

An insanely fast-paced psychological thriller with a killer hook, from the international bestseller and master of terror, Sebastian Fitzek. The Clinic is a world leader in memory research, they say they can permanently erase your traumatic memories, leaving you free to start a new life. Marc Lucas killed his pregnant wife in a car crash. He carries the memory of her death with him everywhere - a splinter of glass stuck in his neck. His life is a nightmare from which he can't wake. Should he visit the clinic? Or has he been there already? The problem is, he can't remember....

Set in the intriguing Scotland of 200 years ago, the third installment in the romantic adventures of Jamie and Claire is as compelling as the first. Now that Claire knows Jamie survived the slaughter at Culloden, she is faced with the most difficult decision of her life. She aches to travel back through time again to find the love of her life, but, in order to do that, she must leave their daughter behind.

Good story in a series of good stories, (although I found some of the love scenes going on a bit and fast-forwarded here and there but thats probably just me ;o) )and I really did enjoy lisening to it in the car. Looking forward to the next in the series. Have to make special mention of the narration - I listen to a LOT of audio books and Davina Porter is exceptionally good, easy on the ear and really captures the characters.

Tara, Katherine, and Fintan, friends since adolescence, are full proof that eccentricity is the spice of life. Strikingly different, yet worryingly similar, they all moved from rural Ireland to London to "seize the day" - or something like that. Now in their early 30s, success, on the surface, has made little change.

Cracking Story but...

Marian Keyes always writes a great story - this one is laugh out loud funny and weep buckets sad - cracking book but spoiled, in my opinion, by completely the wrong narrator. Very stilted, halted reading with some appalling attempts at an Irish accent, some not so bad. It distracted me from the story a lot as I found myself shouting at the narrator to get on with it!!! Obviously would be a good narrator for more serious tomes but not for a funny chic lit one.
