review 1: This is a fun, easy chick-lit style read. I deliberately picked it out for some light relief and it was far better than I had expected. Rich girl loses everything ends up in a poor area where she meets people who are far kinder and loving to her than her stuck up rich 'friends'...

review 1: This was my first Carole Matthews book and I am so pleased I decided to read it. It was very well written and the characters were really strong and just came to life off the pages. I was gripped right from start to finish with the dramas going on with all six characters, who knew...

review 1: I was happily surprised by this book! I didn't know Carole Matthews so I quite frankly expected an average Christmas novel all about red and green colors joyful events and I found a truly great novel. A novel about life, expectations, about the sadness that surrounds one someday,...

review 1: I have to say, Carle Matthews is definitely one of my go to authors for Christmas books, and she has never disappointed me. This was one of those, funny, slightly deranged and yet sad at points this is just what I have come to expect from her. Mia has to be the best child in book...

review 1: The first Carole Matthews book I've read in a long time. I read it pretty quickly and was interested to find out what was going to happen, though it was rather predictable. I did find the beginning quite irritating as there were so many 'clues' dropped in to ensure that the rea...
All You Need is Love (2008)
language
English

review 1: All You Need is Love is a sweet story about not knowing what you already have when you are wishing for something different. It is a bit predictable, which isn't always a bad thing. I found Spencer to be kind of a cardboard character, couldn't really get attached to him. It kin...

review 1: A book that seems to have polarised opinion amongst reviewers, but I enjoyed it and found it difficult to put down. I could understand Lily's feelings and how easily she fell for the attentions of Seymour. But she recognized her mistake and had the strength to break off the re...

review 1: I'm not sure what I expected with this one as I'd never read any of Carole's books before and I was absolutely stunned... I sat with tears streaming down my face at the end of the story as it completely matched what I'd felt when my daughter went through treatment for lymphoma. T...

review 1: This was my second Carole Matthews book, I really enjoyed the story- I connected with Janie from the start but towards the end I lost it a little- as I was waiting for something to go wrong with her and Dominic's relationship. I really enjoyed the Africa chapters, the way it had ...

review 1: I haven't read any of Carole's books before but I saw a review which likened her to my beloved Marian Keyes so I thought it give it a whirl. It's definitely not on the scale of Marian's witty writing, but there were some extremely funny laugh out loud moments, and on the whole I ...

review 1: This is the first book I've ever read by Carole Matthews. I picked it up from a car boot sale and expected to find it... well, okay, I suppose.How wrong could I be? I loved it. Okay, so it's a really easy book to read. It doesn't stretch the brain cells or try to set the politica...

review 1: I really enjoyed this book, especially once I had gotten used to Matthew's witty/one liner style of writing. The whole plot was enjoyable and refreshing, and was able to make me laugh one moment and tear up the next. I did find parts a bit tedious, early repition of phrases sim...
