June Books 15) The Bog Warrior, by Cecelia Ahern

Latest so far in the series of Time Trips, short Doctor Who ebooks by famous writers not generally known as Whovians - Ahern is a best-selling chick-lit writer, known in Ireland also as the daughter of a former Taoiseach. Alas, while this series has delivered some excellent stuff in small packages, this is not the best of the bunch; although we are informed via the cover that this is a Tenth Doctor story, there is very little characterisation of the main character; the story itself includes some very self-conscious rewriting of Cinderella, and the brokering of peace between two warring factions, but it's really not terribly exciting or even well-written. I am sure that her work in her more habitual genre is better.
