    Rich in Small Things by Helen J Beal is a story focusing on how much the small things in life actually mean to us.First Paragraph:"I am horizontal, mid-air, my feet planting into his chest. He sprawls backwards and the anger knotted inside of me bursts out of my mouth in a shout as he thumps down onto the mat. He scrambles to his feet and comes at me again and in my mind I see myself yesterday, stood up against the window in the office with its view out across the docklands, along with the rest [...]

    Book review: Rich in Small Things by Helen J BealThe book appeals to me instantly as it relates to a young lady who loses her job in the city and finds that her skills are suited to online gambling. I am one of many who believe that many bankers are no more than professional gamblers. All gamblers, no matter talented, either hit a losing streak sooner or later or go for that one big risky deal. The excuse after a failure is that their methods worked perfectly until that one unlucky market crash [...]

    Ok, firstly if like to thank the author for picking me to win this book in the giveaway, I was very grateful to be chosen. Now, on with the review.I would have loved to give this book 5 stars but I can't, it started off quite slow, and it took me over a week (reading a chapter at a time) to read the first 100 pages. There were moments, like the poker table bits that I felt it picked up, and I understand how the ultimatum with victor could have been seen as terrifying, but Melissa never seemed o [...]

    I really enjoyed this book which takes you on an adventure from an exit from the high flying banking world, through online poker, losing a real poker game with the Ukrainian mafia (oops!) and an exciting adventure driving in a race across Europe to Mongolia! I am not a card player let alone a poker player, I do love travelling though so I wondered if I would just enjoy bits of the book. How wrong I was - I loved it all! The way the author describes the games of poker gave me an insight into the [...]

    I enjoyed this novel which follows the fortunes of Melissa, a high earning city girl whose life changes, twists, turns, and develops into a compelling adventure. This is a story full of observations and reflections on modern life and the world we live in. I enjoyed being with the characters and willing them along on their exciting and challenging journey through different lands. I was unable to put this book down towards the later chapters, and very much enjoyed the ending. I then treated myself [...]

    There is no such thing as the Ulaanbaatar Cup. The whole idea of a car race from London to the capital of Mongolia, incorporating many elements of an international treasure hunt, is entirely a work of fiction. This novel, telling the story of participants in the fictitious Ulaanbaatar Cup race, is a very enjoyable read. It is a combination of cultural travelogue, a simple story of romance, and a bit of suspenseful intrigue.It starts off innocently enough, or actually, not so innocently. Melissa, [...]
