Another month rolls around. I’m really not sure what’s happened with the mail here, but I’m not getting any parcels (despite them being sent). So if you’ve sent me a book over the last month via standard post, it’s not here yet. I’m sorry.
I did receive two other books via courier and bought one:
The Road to Ironbark by Kaye Dobbie (available 5th August) arrived thanks to Harlequin. Set in the 1870s, Aurora is the publican in the goldfields town of Ironbark. But when bushrangers take the hotel hostage, Aurora and a lot of money have disappeared. Moving forward to the present day, Melody is helping her brother prepare for a festival in town when she receives a surprise inheritance. How is her family linked to the famous missing money?
The Healer by Allison Butler (also available on 5th August) came from Harlequin too. This novel is set in the 1400s on the Anglo-Scottish border. Lynelle offers herself to be held captive instead of her brother who was captured in a Scottish raid. She strikes a deal with the local laird to use her healing skills to treat his brother, but they are drawn to each other even though they are enemies.
Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel is the second in the trilogy about Thomas Cromwell. He’s now the chief minister to Henry VIII and needs to find a solution to remove Anne Boleyn and put Jane Seymour in her place. It’s not going to be a clean one…
