<p>After a close friend died of cancer, middle-aged, overweight, acrophobic newspaperman Tom Ryan decided to pay tribute to her in a most unorthodox manner. Ryan and his friend, miniature schnauzer Atticus M. Finch, would attempt to climb all forty-eight of New Hampshire’s four-thousand-foot peaks twice in one winter while raising money for charity. It was an adventure of a lifetime, leading them across hundreds of miles and deep into an enchanting but dangerous winter wonderland. At the heart of the amazing journey was the extraordinary relationship they shared, one that blurred the line between man and dog.</p><p><em>Following Atticus</em> is an unforgettable true saga of adventure, friendship, and the unlikeliest of family, as one remarkable animal opens the eyes and heart of a tough-as-nails newspaperman to the world’s beauty and its possibilities.</p>

<b>At once an incredible adventure narrative and a penetrating biographical portrait, <i>The River of Doubt</i> is the true story of Theodore Roosevelt’s harrowing exploration of one of the most dangerous rivers on earth.</b><br /><br />The River of Doubt—it is a black, uncharted tributary of the Amazon that snakes through one of the most treacherous jungles in the world. Indians armed with poison-tipped arrows haunt its shadows; piranhas glide through its waters; boulder-strewn rapids turn the river into a roiling cauldron.<br /><br />After his humiliating election defeat in 1912, Roosevelt set his sights on the most punishing physical challenge he could find, the first descent of an unmapped, rapids-choked tributary of the Amazon. Together with his son Kermit and Brazil’s most famous explorer, Cândido Mariano da Silva Rondon, Roosevelt accomplished a feat so great that many at the time refused to believe it. In the process, he changed the map of the western hemisphere forever.<br /><br />Along the way, Roosevelt and his men faced an unbelievable series of hardships, losing their canoes and supplies to punishing whitewater rapids, and enduring starvation, Indian attack, disease, drowning, and a murder within their own ranks. Three men died, and Roosevelt was brought to the brink of suicide. <i>The River of Doubt</i> brings alive these extraordinary events in a powerful nonfiction narrative thriller that happens to feature one of the most famous Americans who ever lived.<br /><br />From the soaring beauty of the Amazon rain forest to the darkest night of Theodore Roosevelt’s life, here is Candice Millard’s dazzling debut.

Fans of <b>Katie Fforde</b>, <b>Carole Matthews</b>, Victoria Connelly or Erica James – and everyone who enjoyed Nick Alexander’s <i>The French House</i> – will love Fiona Valpy.<br /><br /><b>Five weddings. The perfect venue. One little hitch…</b><br /><br />Leaving the grey skies of home behind to transform a crumbling French Château into a boutique wedding venue is a huge leap of faith for Sara. She and fiancé Gavin sink their life savings into the beautiful Château Bellevue – set under blue skies and surrounded by vineyards in the heart of Bordeaux.<br /><br />After months of hard work, the dream starts to become a reality – until Gavin walks out halfway through their first season. Overnight, Sara is left very much alone with the prospect of losing everything.<br /><br />With her own heart breaking, Sara has five weddings before the end of the season to turn the business around and rescue her dreams. With the help of the locals and a little French <i>courage</i>, <b>can she save Château Bellevue before the summer is over?</b><br /><br /><h2>What people are saying about <i>The French for Always</i></h2><br />‘This was set in the gorgeous French countryside which, itself, was another character in the novel, <b>I honestly felt like I was there drinking in the sunshine, the atmosphere and the wine!</b> The description in this book was just beautiful full on wonderful metaphorical language and adjectives that tasted wonderful in the mouth!<br /><br />Overall this novel would be <b>a lovely summer read</b>, you will feel the heat emanating off the page and so will definitely put you in the mood for barbecues and a glass of wine or two alfresco. This is a stand along novel, so if you haven't read anything from this author before, it would be a great introduction to her <b>lovely writing!</b>’ <b>4/5</b> <i>Fabulous Book Fiend</i><br /><br />‘<b>I fell in love with this novel</b> as soon as I had read the first few pages. I am a sucker for any story that in one way or another has to do with weddings, but I have to admit, I’m not a particular fan of France. Yet, the descriptions of Chateau Bellevue, the surroundings, the small village and its inhabitants... I loved it and <b>the whole atmosphere in the novel immediately made it feel like summer, even though it was raining where I was!</b> The main character, Sara, was easily likeable and I felt myself rooting for her and her wedding business, especially after her fiancé Gavin decides to leave her and she suddenly has to set up the business on her own. Luckily, Sara is surrounded by a great cast of supporting characters, including the trustworthy Karen and handsome and charming Thomas.<br /><br />The storyline, which revolves around Sara and her attempts to save Chateau Bellevue, was really enjoyable, especially because of the five weddings that are organised at the venue while the story enfolds. Each of the weddings featured a specific couple, all of them different from one another with their own background. <b>Fiona Valpy’s writing is great; well-paced, detailed, and captivating</b>, and I definitely look forward to reading more of her work in the future. ‘The French for Always’ is a wonderfully warm and thoroughly enjoyable read, and <b>definitely the book to pick up if you are looking for your first taste of summer!’ 9.5/10</b> <i>Spoonful of Happy Endings</i>

Inspector de Silva and Jane embark on a cruise to Egypt to visit the pyramids, excited at the prospect of two weeks of sun, sea and relaxation. With Nuala, and de Silva’s duties as a police officer, far behind them, what can possibly spoil their plans? Then a writer is found dead in his cabin, suffocated by newspaper thrust down his throat. Once again, de Silva must swing into action.<br /><em>The Inspector de Silva Mysteries</em> is a colourful and absorbing series, spiced with humour. Set in Ceylon in the 1930s, it will appeal to fans of traditional and cozy mysteries.<br /><br /> What readers say about this series:<br /><br /><em>Pure Enjoyment<em/><br />“Pure enjoyment to read the unfolding of mysteries with happy outcomes set in exotic Ceylon. The good-hearted Shanti is assisted by his capable wife Jane. Together they bring harmony and humour to East meets West. As refreshing as a cup of light Ceylon tea!” <em>Annmarie Wharton<em/><br /><br /><em>A Breath of Fresh Air<em/><br />“What a delightful change of pace. I really liked the characters and the location. It took place during a gentler time without all the cruelty and violence that defines far too much of the books we see being published now. There is more than enough violence surrounding us today without having our escape to the land of books filled with it.” <em> Puzzler<em/><br /><br /><em>Wonderful reads.<em/><br />“I have now read the first two books in this series and have enjoyed them immensely. They are easy to read, and yet plot-wise, keep you captivated until the end. The 1930s Ceylonese setting, and its characters are a delight. Highly recommended.” <em>DRG<em/><br /><br />“A delightful read - can't wait to devour the next one!” <em>JJ McKay<em/><br /><br /><em>Must read police procedural set in pre-war Sri Lanka/Ceylon<em/><br />“I started reading this series after a quick trip to Sri Lanka. Now I am hooked and read them as fast as they come out. Even if you have never been to Sri Lanka these books evoke an interesting period in history and the low-tech state of forensics in the 1930's. The clash of cultures is interesting as well. I can't say enough good things about this series.” <em>S.Smith<em/><br /><br /><em>Layers upon Layer<em/>s<br />“I don't remember how, exactly, I came upon the Nuala books, but just an hour ago I finished a binge read of all four of them. I love a well-written mystery, and these don't disappoint with their frequent literary allusions, interesting characters, and realistic sets of interpersonal challenges and conflicts…. There's always a new thread to be pulled, and all kinds of insights and events result from each pulling. These are absorbing stories, and I hope there will be more of them.” <em>Julie M. Drew<em/>
