    One thought on “White Lies and Custard Creams

    1. Karen (Kew)

      I have noticed that there are very mixed reviews for this book. I must admit that I started to read this some time ago and couldn't get into it at all. Recently I picked it up again and read it straight through with enjoyment - so maybe it depends on your mood at the time? This is a very lighthearted and silly read (silly in a fun way.) It had me laughing out loud several times. I noticed that one reviewer likened this to a farce and I think that is a good description. No-one is as they seem and [...]

      I don't usually read romance, but I was having a bad day and a friend twisted my arm into buying this one. I'm so glad she made me do it! White Lies & Custard Creams left me with a smile on my face and I even thought, aaaaahhhhhh at the end. The only trouble is, that I want a dog like Moocher, and I suspect there will never be another like him in the history of the world. I will definitely buy Ms Alison's next book!

    3. Danielle Bade

      This story was not what I was expecting at all, but it was very good. I really enjoyed all the twists and turns and did not expect the things that happened to happen, can't say much as it would give the story away. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars was because I don't think the final chapter really brought anything to the story at all. I would definately recommend this book.

    4. Laurie Grove

      This was a great read! I couldn't put it down. It was refreshing, funny, quirky, and inventive. I love Susan's style and can't wait to read her next great adventure, which will no doubt be filled with more true to life characters and their zany pets.

    5. Tracey

      I loved this book, to describe it as 'just' chick lit is a doing it a disservice, it's chick lit, romance,comedy,thriller and spy novel all in one entertaining package. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a good read with a bit more bite than your normal romance novel.

    6. Aunty Janet

      I enjoyed this light read. Good old fashioned farce (in a good way!) and the part where Moocher the dog is bathed made me laugh out loud. I got a bit confused with the characters as it moves at quite a pace. Jolly good fun!

    7. Heather

      This took a little while for me to get into it, and even though I made it to the end I didn't find that I could "get" the characters.

    8. Rhoda Baxter

      I picked this book up when it was on special offer because I liked Susan Alison's cards that she does for the RNA conference each year and was curious about her books.I loved it! I'm struggling to think of how to describe it. The words 'madcap' and 'caper' spring to mind. I laughed so much I managed to snort by breakfast as one point.The plot was convoluted and the twists were completely unexpected. Most of the time I had no idea what was going on, but then Liz, the protagonist was just as confu [...]

      A little confusing in places of those situations where if you were watching a film and blinked you would miss something. Found myself having to go back a couple of times as felt like I had missed a paragraph but I hadn't. All in all an enjoyable read, all the different characters do become a bit confusing too but the book does have a good storyline . I would definitely read another of the authors books another time.

    10. Ellie

      Don't go into this expecting a great literary experience. Go into it expecting it to be what it is; a light-hearted, rom-com. As the latter it's an enjoyable breakaway from real life, marred only by the author's overuse of a tendency to merge three words together as one - 'manohman', 'boyohboy' etc begins to grate after a while!

    11. Ruth Good

      This was another "sat at the bottom of my kindle" book. I can only think I download edit as it was free at the time. I haven't even finished it. Im not wasting any more time on it. Awful book.
