Desperation in death. / J.D. Robb.

I have to admit to being a biased reader of this title.Ive loved the series since I read Rapture in Death in 1996 and immediately went back and started at the beginning of the Eve and Roarke story. Now I eagerly await each new title. As always this new title can be read as a stand-alone but I always recommend a new reader read at least Naked in Death so they know where how and when the story began.
Theres something here for everyone - adventure and mystery intrigue and murder friendship and betrayal love and hate. Theres even history and humour. However the overriding theme is family in all its extended forms - at home in the workplace at An Didean and in the wider community. No matter whats happening with the story Robb always takes time to describe the setting and characters and to develop the relationships of her main characters. A fantastic read .

The Drover's Wife / Purcell, Leah.
Author: Purcell, Leah.
Publisher: Camberwell, VIC : Penguin Australia, 2021.

Purcells novel is a beautifully evocative rendition of Henry Lawsons short story with some extensions that give it a modern significance. Through the voices of Louisa and Nate and Danny we learn not only of Australias past but also of the beginnings of the fight for womens rights and we can also face the issues of race and culture.

This is another in the Detective Dave Burrows novels but could be read as a stand-alone.
Set on a cattle property north of Carnarvon Dave and partner Bob find themselves embroiled in a case involving murder and drug smuggling rather than the simple theft of sheep theft they were expecting as Stock Squad Detectives. McDonald does an excellent job of setting the scene and the twists and turns in the story make for a very interesting read - somewhat like a J.D. Robb novel set in rural outback Australia rather than futuristic urban New York.
Crime murder and betrayal are balanced by adventure friendship and loyalty.

Alex Evans a troubled young man who is unhappy in his own job comes to Lapland to search for the truth about the death of his younger sister.

Agatha is The Chief of Police in charge of the case and is haunted by cold cases concerning three missing women.

Romance and unhappy family relationships provide an added bonus.

An enjoyable book.
Having lived in Sydney and on the Blue Mountains I could relate to the places in the book where Mrs Livesey was
. This lady obviously had no conscience to do what she did to people and to treat s her 2 sons the way she did.
.i found each page and chapter I read I was wondering what I would find and how much more mischief she had done.
An enjoyable read with no prfanity in which made it even better.
recommend to all

Nicholas Lee, cameraman for 60 minutes. For 30 years he spent this time on the road with 60 minutes and this is the hilarious and sometimes harrowing tales of his experiences. This is a well written story of life with no budget restraints, working for the most respected show and talented colleagues in some of the most unusual places in the world. I really enjoyed this book and laughed through the fun parts and cried through the sad. Well worth a read if you remember ever watching the show or just like a great travel story,

This is the second novel by Yanagihara. It is a tale of four university friends from the same college. All four move to New York to chase big careers and are all incredibly successful in each of their fields. Yanagihara describes the friendship between these men over decades marked by love loss, additiction and childhood abuse. It is truly an unforgettable read of four men's friendship with the author, spinning a horrendous tale which is unforgettable. Read it if you dare!!

This book is a fantastic new addition to our collection. It is a great "girl meets boy" novel but with a modern, unconventional twist. Frankie Rose (the main character), absoloutely loves her classic novels, but can't seem to find love with someone who has the same reading tastes as her. So, she places books on trains with a message at the end of the book, in the hope that she will meet her perfect man. This book is an easy read, with lots of funny moments as you follow Frankie on her journey.

I first saw this book advertised on TV. Nathan was being interviewed regarding his busy life and trying to cook for his young twins. Nathan is a Personal Trainer and eating healthy is essential. I instantly related to Nathan and thought it would assist my busy lifestyle and meal preperation. I found Fast Food for Fit Dad's was excellent and very helpful. It had easy to follow instructions and minimal ingredients. My husband and children absoloutely loved the meals I prepared for them, utilising the recipes in this book.
