Into the cutthroat world of Corinium television comes mega-star Declan O'Hara. Declan soon realises that the Managing Director, Lord Baddingham, has recruited him merely to help retain the franchise for Corinium. Baddingham has also enticed Cameron Cook, a gorgeous, domineering woman executive, to produce Declan's programme. As a rival group emerges to pitch for the franchise, reputations ripen and decline, true love blossoms and burns, marriages are made and shattered and sex raises its head at almost every throw....

loved this book, quientessential Jilly, great story. sadly narrators voice was irritatingly irregular, I spent the entire book turning volume up to hear, then down when narrator was in conversation mode - very annoying and spoilt the experience.

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook addition of According to Yes, the hilarious new novel by Dawn French. The Foreign Land of the Very Wealthy - otherwise known as Manhattan's Upper East Side - has its own rigid code of behaviour. It's a code strictly adhered to by the Wilder-Bingham family. Emotional displays - unacceptable. Unruly behaviour - definitely not welcome. Fun - no thanks. This is Glenn Wilder-Bingham's kingdom.

I am a Dawn French fan, but this book is full, predictable and after 4 hours I gave up, sonething I rarely do. The voices were very annoying and jarring and the characters not very likeable. My advice is give this one away.

Out of Practice is based around a large country medical practice, which proves to be a hotbed of rivalry, resentment and romance - and that's just the doctors. Think James Herriot meets House.

It all starts at a party, as these things often do...A one-night stand with far-reaching consequences. Momentarily enamored guests going home with all the wrong people. An unfaithful wife struck by jealousy and getting a dose of her own medicine. A shocking family secret revealed at the worst possible moment. One fling follows another, and now the whole community is embroiled in a great big web of deceit, the untangling of which will charm you, amuse you, make you laugh, and make you cry. Whatever's going on in your life, Solo by Jill Mansell is the perfect distraction.

Love Mansell. Had to turn off could not stand flat, implausible narration from Heather Wilde.
