Mondays are coming around quickly this year! I had a busy week, followed by a jam packed weekend. What was great though was that I got a parcel delivered on a Sunday! (Australia Post generally don’t deliver on weekends, unless it’s nearly Christmas). I had planned to get to a bookshop, but it was so hot and I was so tired that it didn’t happen. Maybe next weekend…
Here’s what arrived in my letterbox over the last week:
The Last McAdam by Holly Ford (out Wednesday) was from Allen and Unwin. It’s a rural novel set on the sheep and cattle station of Broken Creek. Like its name, the station is fading fast and Tess is sent in to fix it after the sale of the property to a global company. But Tess finds out she knows the head stockman who was meant to inherit the property, which makes things awkward… Do look out too for a guest post from Holly on the blog soon.
Daughter of Mine by Fiona Lowe (released today!) arrived from Harlequin. This book is also set on a large rural property, but in the west of Victoria. The three Chirnwell sisters are very different – one successful, one chaotic and one away from home but when a party brings a shock, the dam wall breaks. Accusations fly, secrets come to the fore and one of them hits crisis point. Can the sisters depend on each other?
The Mother’s Promise by Sally Hepworth (out March) came from Pan Macmillan. It’s about Alice, who has a close relationship with daughter Zoe. In fact, they’ve never needed anyone but each other. But Alice gets sick and reaches out to members of the oncology team – nurse Zoe and Sonja, her social worker to try to find stability for Zoe. The lives of the three women become entangled, forcing them to face their fears and secrets.
