Camilla Armstrong moves out of her flat in the city centre and into an old farmhouse in the rambling Scottish countryside.

Camilla is a spiritual medium, who ends up falling for the local vicar, but will their relationship be able to survive their conflicting beliefs? Or the return of an old flame? Why was she drawn towards buying Rosehill by the spirit of her grandmother? What secrets lay hidden in this old house in the country?

Part paranormal, part love story, part mystery, this book will appeal to everyone. If you are not a big fan of the paranormal, please don’t let that put you off, as there is a lot more to it than that.

I found the book to be a bit slow to get going. I wondered where The story was going for a while, but then, all of a sudden, I just couldn’t put it down! I had to find out what happened next. The book has nice, short chapters. I kept thinking, “I’ll just read one more chapter before going to sleep”, and ending up reading three or four chapters!

All in all, I thought this book was great. So my advice would be, grab a cuppa, curl up on the sofa, and start reading – you won’t regret it!

I bought my 4yo the vtech mobigo for her birthday in September this year. As she is a very girly girl, who loves pink and princesses, we got the pink one that came with the Disney princess game included. I also bought her the Disney’s tangled game, to go with it.

I was a little worried that the games would be too difficult for her, but she enjoys playing with it, and I have found that there are both easier levels and more advanced levels on both games, meaning it should keep her interest as she gets older. I also connected the mobigo to our computer, and we downloaded 3 extra games for her to play with, which were free, as we received 3 free v-coins when we registered online. The games include a colouring game, and one where you have to count how many bunnies are hiding – she really loves that one!!

It’s easy for her to set up and switch on by herself, and she can work the touch screen and the buttons well. Battery life is not amazing, but that may well be because my daughter plays with it all the time! It might be worth investing in some rechargeable batteries though, just in case. I also found that because my daughter is quite little, she found it hard to hold the mobigo in one hand, as is is quite heavy. All in all though, it’s a great buy, and it gets a big thumbs up from us!
