All Things Nice by Sheila Bugler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Spent another week in Sheila Bugler’s criminal world. Set in London, with a tense ending at Beachy Head in East Sussex. Sheila tells a good story- fast paced and gripping.
Four hundred and nine years ago today, 2 May 2020, we had a New Bible. After seven years work, the King James Bible, a new version of the Christian holy book in English, is published for the first time in London.

Funny, You Don’t Look Autistic: A Comedian’s Guide to Life on the Spectrum by Michael McCreary
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I had never heard of Michael McCreary- and I didn’t know a lot about Autism. I feel I learnt a lot during the course of this book and will also now look out for Michael McCreary’s comedy.
What do you think of the 2020 shortlisted titles? I’d love to know.
Deadly Primrose by Suzette A Hill
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Quintessentially English with hints of Agatha Raisin in the main character Primrose Oughtergard. Part of the Francis Oughtergard series by Suzette Hill . Set in East Sussex it had local attraction for me. it was OK- cosy crime with a comedy slant.
