My review:

 I was looking for some good chick-lit book which made me laugh and I find this. I’m not disappointed.
   Its look like Abigail-main character speaks with reader.
I feel like a have conversation with her that is so intimate and its good feeling.
     Abigail learns how to enjoy in her singledom after breaking with her boyfriend, Peter. She learns how to date with boys and try not to be boring. She is so funny and I enjoy in every single word that’s coming out of her mouth .Good job, Gemma!
    Ah, Robert is a charming man. I adore him. Robert is a flatmate to Abigail; he helps her by giving her advices like how to seduce a boy and how to be a single.  
    Plum-I just wanted to shut her mouth. She is the best girlfriend to Abigail, but she is so chatty and she swears too much.
   Sophie is a small sister to Abigail. How lovely! They are like friends, help each other and appreciate each other.
   There are more characters I choose these because I liked them.
Real book and appropriate for every part of year, for every generation, for every taste. You will enjoy in this book. If you like funny, interesting and chick-lit books just grab it and read it.

Genre:Romance

.. you will like this book(Something about you)




My review:

      I’m a little bit surprised .FBI agents and murder and investigation. I expected something different, but it doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy reading this book.
I should have known that, because Julie James is graduated from Low College…
She makes perfect characters that bring in us in story with flashbacks (I like it)-now and what happens before three years ago.    
    Cameron is strong women and she is Assistant U.S. Attorney, she likes her job and enjoys being in courtroom. But after her dad’s death she becomes little unstable. Cameron looks like women made of steel, she acting like that, but she so vulnerable specially when she been witness of murder. That situation brings in her to meet Jack Pallas. Three years ago Cameron ruins his career and now she must corporate with him.
     Jack Pallas is a tough guy, FBI agent, angry of Cameron (she thinks that) and very hot man (agent Hottie).He isn’t romantic guy. He isn’t heard about “Sex and the city” and chick-flicks.
     Opposite of Jack Pallas is an agent Wilkins he is a “good cop” and he is secondary character.
     Collin is Cameron best friend. He is a sport columnist like Carrie Bradshaw in men’s world (like say Wilkins).
      What will happen with Cameron? If tension between Cameron and Jack will end and how will end?

Life,Love and a Polar Bear Tattoo

Title:Life,Love and a Polar Bear Tattoo
Author:Heather Wardell
Pages:357
Genre:Romance

My review:


    
       Candice and Ian have perfect marriage before his parents died in car accident when they buying a Christmas  presents.Ian accuse Candice for his loss.Their marriage is on the edge.Ian must go in foreign country  for four-week to work.
      Candice work like assistant designer.Everything is good she have time enough to think how to safe her marriage,but…Kegan her first love is her client in work.Candice must help him to design his new restaurant.He is so handsome and adorable!
       Will she do that and broke her marriage or she will resist to her old love?

My thoughts:  Love is pure and clear.Love is one thing who live forever.When one day happen never end.When you say “yes” there no coming back you’re in forever lasting love cycle.Is that really true? No!!!
       That happen just in stories.In real life love is so complicated.One improper thing is enough to ruin hole life to two people who promise one another eternal love.


The Madonna of the almonds

This is my first review.Woohoo!

  Isn’t it that true history is written by winners?
  Isn’t it that history have all the facts from the pass?
  Maybe!Maybe not!



  Marina Fiorato in “The Madonna of the almonds” makes me believe every word that she has written.This is the book which make you out of yourself  for a while time. I don’t read any book,until I don’t  adapt my impressions.
This is what it’s all about:
    “In the time of wars in Italy it created some big love and the most tasteful almond liqueur.This book is the story of  love and the origin of almond liqueur.
     Bernardino Luini  has a mission to make fresco in some churches in Lombardy.There he meets the beautiful Simonetta di Saronno a young widow.Her husband died in battle in  Pavia.She was very sad for her loss and only prayers and staring in the distance is her consolation.Her husband also spend all their money.
     Bernardino is dangler.He don’t relate with any women for long time.But some women will steal his heard.When he saw Simonetta all his painted saints have her look.Love is in the air…”

    I was animated of  descriptions of paintings and person’s look and mixture of history facts and fiction.

Some quotes from my favorites authors
