<b>Having just finished his indentures, John Rawlings is celebrating in Vaux Hall Pleasure Gardens when he trips over the body of a young girl.</b><br /><br />Summoned to the magistrate’s office as prime suspect, Rawlings not only clears his own name but impresses Fielding so much with his power of recollection that he is asked to investigate the crime. <br /><br />Thus begins the illustrious career of John Rawlings, the ingenious detective stalking London's grimy streets, in this four-part box set that opens Deryn Lake's acclaimed series.<br /><br />The Rawlings novels are richly atmospheric and compelling Georgian mysteries woven around the real characters of John Fielding, the phenomenal sightless magistrate known as the ‘Blind Beak’, whose Runners formed London’s early police force; and John Rawlings, the Apothecary reputed to have invented soda water.<br /><br /><h2>Praise for Deryn Lake’s John Rawlings Mysteries:</h2><br /><b>‘A wealth of marvellous characters parade across the pages, their dialogue is lively and John Rawlings is proving to be a real charmer’ - <em>Eastbourne Herald</em><br /><br />‘An effervescent tale...the author organises her large cast and colourful background with skill and gusto through a racily readable drama’ - Felicia Lamb in the <em>Mail on Sunday’s Night & Day Magazine</em></b><br /><br />

<b>In this witty, deeply honest tale of married life, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Jane Green delves into the heart of the holidays—and the winter of one woman’s discontent . . .</b><br /><b> </b><br />Just when she’d sworn off men for good, Sarah Evans met Eddie. Sarah was a magazine editor, living in Manhattan, and loving her life—except for the heartbreaks. A successful real estate developer, Eddie was a breath of fresh air, a meeting of minds—and bodies. Soon came wedded bliss, baby number one—and the proverbial move to the suburbs . . .<br /> <br /><i>You just sit there like a slob while I do all the work.</i> Nine years later, this is increasingly what goes through Sarah’s mind when she looks at Evan, propped in front of the TV with a beer, ignoring their two children. The truth is, she misses her old life. She misses the old Eddie. She can’t help wondering if she’d be happier alone . . . <br /> <br />When Eddie’s job sends him to Chicago indefinitely, Sarah shocks him by suggesting a trial separation. But she knows it’s just a precursor to divorce—even if Eddie chooses to think of it as a “vacation.” Yet a lot can change—on both sides—as time goes by. And once Christmas arrives, Sarah and Eddie might re-discover gifts they’d forgotten they had . . .
