I read ‘Dear Amy’ just after Christmas, and it’s taken me a while to decide what I wanted to say about this particular novel, but I think I’m about there…
Beauty and the Beast has long since been one of my favourite stories.

Cole is often referred to as one of the front-runners when it comes to Crime Fiction, but even as someone who largely only reads Crime novels, I have only read one of her novels so far. But having heard ‘The Take’ praised so highly, I felt it was about time I tackle my second Cole novel.

It’s been far far too long since I had the pleasure of seeing a bit of musical theatre, so needless to say I was hugely excited to see Sister Act at Bradford’s Alhambra theatre this weekend.

The question was, would the show live up to my expectations?
