I hope those of you that had a holiday for Easter are having a nice break. Me, I’m just happy that I had two days off in a row! I didn’t get to the shops because of work, but I did receive some lovely books:
Talk of the Town by Rachael Johns (out May) is her latest rural fiction book (thanks to Harlequin for the copy). It’s set in dairy farming country, where Lawson Cooper-Jones leads a fairly solitary life with son Ned after the death of his wife. But when they get a flat tyre in a ghost town, Lawson is surprised to find that there’s a woman living in the abandoned general store. Why does Meg live there and how can Lawson help find out the town’s past? Just as their friendship turns to something stronger, a meddling local scorches the idea. I’m really looking forward to this, because Rachael is an awesome writer and I get to speak a little at the book launch next month!
Storyland by Catherine McKinnon came from Harper Collins. It’s a story set in Australia across multiple time periods from 1796 to 2033 with multiple narrators. How are they all linked together? It’s a beautifully presented book and one I think I’ll dip into next.
Miss Lily’s Lovely Ladies by Jackie French was a surprise present. It’s based on a true story, of an exclusive finishing school in England. But with World War I on the way, Miss Lily’s students need to forget what they’ve learned and muck in to help. Except Sophie, whose skills may be of a great asset…
