Making Tracks by Ian Harding

A wonderfully worded collection of poems from simple observation of life and nature, blended with everyday thoughts of life and love. A remarkable look through the lens of life and capturing it essence beautifully. I read this book in one sitting and I enjoyed every minute and moment of it.

The Lost Sheep by Ian Harding

A beautiful collection of spiritual poems that are emotionally expressive and filled with deep thoughts that make you think and absorb the words and their meaning. The book can easily be read in one session as it is quite short at only fifty-six pages, so I found just as I was really getting into the book it ended. Luckily there are more books available from Ian Harding and I will look forward to reading them.

Scotch on the Rocks by Lizzie Lamb

When your fiancé is found in a compromising position, just as you are dealt with the death of your father, there is only one thing to do, head home and back to the place you belong, and this is exactly what Ishabel Stuart does. Returning and escaping to the scenic, scottish highlands and the small island of Eilean na Sgairbh and back into the safety of her family home, a guest house run by her aunt. Issy is ready to stand on her own two feet and leave love behind and make something of her life alone.

At the bed and breakfast she is surprised to find an American guest called Brodie occupying her room. Issy takes an instant dislike to him and the more she sees him the more she questions his reasons for his visit. Issy has the intense feeling he wants something from her, but if this is so, just how much would she be willing to give?

I really enjoy Lizzie Lamb's books, she never disappoints, there is always a thrilling storyline with a fine romance, keeping you intrigued and hooked all the way through the book. As always there are some cracking characters and a pet parrot provides comedy and humorous moments throughout the story. I am happy to hear another book is in the pipeline from Lizzie, so I don’t have to wait too long for my next fix.
