Review: In the Cold Light of Day by Pauline Barclay

“Once again Pauline's characters are real and believable, her descriptive writing gets better and better with each book. Although you shouldn't really warm to Bertie you can't help liking him when his vulnerable side shows through. The storyline is not one that is tackled often and although set in the 1960s it could just as easily be the present day.

I would recommend this book, it's thought provoking (do we really always know our partners as well as we think?) and at the same time an easy and comfortable read - a bit like pulling on a favourite jumper and relaxing (with a good story of course). In fact, all of Pauline's books are to be recommended and as each one is completely different you will enjoy a variety of locations and characters.”

Reviewed: Storm Clouds Gathering by Pauline Barclay

"I was stressed when this story came to an end, not wanting to close the book on Barclay's cast of characters in Storm Clouds Gathering. This novel is full of wonderful, wonderful characters, strong and broken relationships, hope and grief, love, happiness and despair. Success and failure and always...the tension from those storm clouds on the horizon. Well worth the read!"

“The latest book offering from Pauline Barclay is once again a joy to read!! Her characters and storylines are always are so feel as though you are watching the story's unfold from the corner of the room rather than on the page... as though you know the characters and everything about them.
If you’re looking for a good book to curl up with on these long dark evenings then look no further. Try any of Pauline's books...I'm sure you won't be disappointed !!”

A review for Next Christmas Will Be Different

Next Christmas…will be different…how could you not identify with this short, sweet and poignant story about Christmas? Pauline Barclay’s tale reminded me of countless Christmases spent at my grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins, siblings et al. They were noisy raucous affairs, fun-filled, the small house overflowing with love, laughter and the inevitable family squabble.
Pauline conjures all this up with consummate skill and reminds us just what having a family around you means – families are special and it is times like this when we appreciate it – especially long-suffering Mum.

Well written and the perfect length for a short story.
Recommended with 5 stars too.
