Part mystery, part family saga... I loved the journey of this story. The life, the setting, the wonderful descriptions of the farm, the dogs and Edgar's special connection with them. I really enjoyed reading this book. A beautifully written story that will draw you in to a place you'll want to stay...

This is a story of how people change and Alice's amnesia is the tool that Moriarty uses the unravel the family dynamic and the friendships in Alice's life. Some darker themes are tackled; Alice's sister's infertility and the erosion of love between Alice and her husband Nick.
A great read!
A little more complex than some of her earlier work Blacklock writes with real warmth and humour. Three's a Crowd is a story about relationships and how they change, their fragility and strength. It also had me questioning some judgements I may have made about people and their relationships.
A very enjoyable weekend read.
The Better Woman follows the lives of two women Sarah and Jodi living in Sydney and Ireland their lives running in parallel. I couldn't help but get caught up in their lives, as Ber Carroll writes with both empathy and humour and never did decide who I liked most!
A must read for fans of the genre.

After reading Deadfall I jumped at the chance to enjoy another Lyndon Stacey novel but I was bitterly disappointed by Outside Chance. I couldn't warm to the main character Ben Copperfield (and not just because he was a journalist!) and I found that the setting of the circus just couldn't replace the action of the racetrack.
However, my faith in Stacey was restored when I read the next novel Six to One Against. Another fast-paced easy read with a likeable hero in Gideon Blake. Plus a good romance as well! I'm glad I didn't give up on this author.

Written from a feminist perspective, Mexican born American Canela escapes her impending wedding, and her cousins death by travelling to Paris where she enrols in Le Coq Rouge to study the fine art of French cuisine. The backdrop aromas of sauces, broths and purees made me hungry and the backdrop of a city where I ate some of the most memorable meals I have eaten was a pleasure. Just a warning, Canela's... er..new friends, sensual awakenings and sexual activity at times made me blush.
