Once again this week, I’m a day behind. Hopeless, I know. Promise to try to do better next week.
I started this yesterday. I’m not normally a fan of celebrity-penned novels, but as Judy Finnegan was a writer (journalist, to be exact) before she was a TV personality, I decided to give this one a go. Several reviews have compared it to Daphne Du Maurier, but other than the setting (Cornwall) and several references to Daphne and her works (so far), I don’t really see the likeness. I’ve enjoyed what I’ve read so far, though.
This week I’ve been wrapped up in the brilliant BBC five-part drama set in the 30s. Enjoyed this immensely – great cast, great acting, great story. If you didn’t see it, I believe it’s out on DVD now, and it’s well worth watching.
