Enchanted August (Book)
“In a rented seaside cottage in Maine, four women recharge, regroup and eat plenty of lobster far away from their pressure-filled lives. A charming, thoroughly engrossing novel that’s the next best thing to being there.” – People Magazine --amazon--
Finders Keepers (Book)
A masterful, intensely suspenseful novel about a reader whose obsession with a reclusive writer goes far too far—a book about the power of storytelling, starring the same trio of unlikely and winning heroes King introduced in Mr. Mercedes.
In the unlikely event (Book)
“In the Unlikely Event gives us everything that Blume is known (and beloved) for—the fierce, fraught nature of young relationships, the comfort and confines of cultural identity, the messiness and joys of the body—and takes it to a new level. This novel is her most ambitious to date, and she lives up to its reach with her characteristic frankness, compassion, and charm.” —Gayle Brandeis, The San Francisco Chronicle --amazon--

One of the best action comedies of the last few years. Great cast just all having a bit of fun. Once you don't take it too seriously, you will have a ball. Being a Brit now living in the US, it made me miss London, but it also made me proud that we Brits can still kick *ss, but do it with a lot of class, and are always gentlemanly, even to our foes. I was a big fan of Colin Firth before this movie, and am now even a bigger fan. --amazon--
