Everything seems to be back almost in full swing after the holiday break – traffic is heavy, car parks are scarce and work is piling up! I didn’t receive any books in the mail, nor buy any (the shelves are still pretty bare). Luckily, here are the last books of my Christmas haul. (Birthday books are still to come).
Roman Crazy by Alice Clayton and Nina Bocci is a fun romance about Avery, wounded from the end of her marriage, spending the summer in Rome. But Rome is also home to Marcello, the man who got away. Gelato by day, Marcello by night – is it a summer fling or the start of a new life?
Daughter of the Murray by Darry Fraser is historical fiction, set on the beautiful Murray River. Georgina’s not happy with life with her foster family in the 1890s, especially when prodigal son Dane returns. She flees on his prized stallion, crossing paths with Conor Foley, a businessman with a proposition for Georgina. Where does her heart lie and how will things turn out in the changing political landscape?
Outback Emergency contains three stories (The Doctor’s Rescue Mission by Marion Lennox, Pregnant on Arrival by Fiona Lowe and A Baby for the Flying Doctor by Lucy Clark), all medical romances set in the Australian outback. There’s a tidal wave, flying doctors and love in the air!
The Doctor by Dr Karl Kruszelnicki is non-fiction, where Dr Karl discusses quirky, interesting science in fun chunks. Why do people talk louder when they’re drunk? Why don’t you sleep well in an unfamiliar bed? Why does streaming videos use more power than your fridge? Is caffeine now a good drug? I love Dr Karl and I love that I can always find out more through his detailed references.
