Goodreads: From her childhood in Kenya until her death in 1990, Jane Moneypenny led an extraordinary life. Contrary to popular belief, she was not simply a bystander whilst her colleague and confidante, James Bond, saw all the action. These are her diaries, which were never meant to be written or read
I Love the James Bond movies so when my dad give me all of the Ian Flemming books plus the Moneypenny Diaries and advised i started with the Moneypenny Diaries. I couldn't wait to read them.
Miss Jane Moneypenny is the right had woman for M and the glue that holds the workings of her majesty secret service together. However for years we have believed that Miss Moneypenny spent her time sat behind a desk doing the admin running of M and the 00's sections work. How wrong we were! The book follows the secret dairies of Moneypenny and follows her to Cuba on a mission to save James's life, the struggles to keep relationships, the enemies attempts to perused her to be a double agent with news of her father being dangled in front of her face. The story takes a dark turn when Jane realises that she is been followed and had to fight of an invasion of her own home. We see a whole different side of Moneypenny when we follow her on another mission to Cuba with James. Will she survive the mission and her life of secrets and spies and final get information of her fathers disappearance?
I didn't no what to expect when i first started reading the Moneypenny diaries, I loved the James Bond films and really want to read the books. When i got the Moneypenny diaries i was expecting them to be slightly boring as the impression you get is that Jane spent all off her time behind a desk. How wrong i was. I enjoyed seeing things from Jane's point of view. you got to see the inner workings of MI6 and the worries and scares they go through. I enjoyed seeing Bond and his missions from a different point of view. I think the book is beautifully written with real accounts of event woven in to the story. I found the writing style a bit difficult to get in to at first but once i was reading i got engrossed in the story and couldn't stop reading. It was an all round brilliant and i cant wait to read the next one.
I could not believe how brilliant Jane Moneypenny is! I loved learning how she got her job as M's right hand woman. I got engrossed at following her day today activities it was like i was right there . The book shows a different side to Jane, it shows a strong and confident woman how would do anything for her job and James. She is brave and puts her self in dangers she not trained for just to save James!
A brilliant book! it shows a whole different side to Miss Moneypenny!
A must read! I have already started the next book!

I am so excited to be on another of Diana's Blog Tours! So my treat for you all today..... A review if Diana's New book. and i can promise you wont be disappointed!
I was again over the moon to be on another of Diana's blog tour's and i was so excited when i received the book. I am always over the moon to get my hands on a new book by Diana as none of the books i have read previously have been a disappointment! As always this book has be hooked from page 1 and i read it in one sit! It consists of all of the emotion ,drama ,heights and fights you expect from Diana and on top of all this a brilliant plot!

We all treasure our memories , special moments in our lives such as weddings, birthdays , First loves we commit to memory so we can look back on them with the loved ones involved and relive that special feeling. But what would you do if you woke up and all those memories where gone? That is the situation that Kassie finds herself in! She awakes from an accident with a strange but good looking stranger in her room and no memories of her life. With people around her she tries to put together her life but she keeps remembering small things about her stranger new friend. With her memories slowly coming back, her feelings grown for a mysterious stranger, her body warning her to stay away from him and secrets surrounding her brothers death coming to light will Kassie get her happy ending and figure out who she loves and what she wants or is she destined to live in a world of secrets ?
I couldn't wait to start reading this book. It is different to anything else i have ready by Diana. From the first page i was completely hooked I was immediately hooked on the story-line of someone having no memory and having to trust the people around her with no knowledge how who she is. I was attached to the characters from the very first page. After that the story only got better! there was the ups and downs of Kassie and Daniels Relationship, the arguments and the fights, then the love and passion of there love with stood in direct contrast to the feelings of loss and sorrow over the death of her brother. you are on a roller-coaster journey, you just have to strap yourself in an go along with the characters. I enjoyed every minute! The storyline is brilliant, the characters are fantastic an all round engrossing book!
I loved Kassie! Although she has lost her memory she is still a really strong and passionate character. I love how she stands up for herself and doesn't let Daniel walk all over her, however you do see the more vulnerable side to her. At times i want to slap Daniel but i loved watching the tension between the two of them. All the way though the book i was worried there wasn't going to be a happy ending but i was please to finally get my happy ending!
I must stay Diana did not disappoint this book easily stood up to the high standard of her other books ! Amazing !! If you haven't already you must read it! reading this can not do the book justice!
