Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 19/9/22

I’ve been a bit busy this week with other things, so didn’t get a lot of time for reading (only finished the one book). I do have a lot of choices for the next read though…

The Sun Walks Down by Fiona McFarlane (available 5th October) was a surprise from Allen & Unwin. Set in 1883, a young boy has gone missing during a dust storm in a South Australian town. The residents search for him, and as they do, explore their own relationships with the landscape.

The Three Lives of Alix St Pierre by Natasha Lester (available 28th September) was thanks to Hachette. Alix is a PR guru in 1940s New York, and finds herself recruited into intelligence to help the war effort. After the war, she works in fashion, but a figure from the war reappears who could destroy her future.

Jillaroo from Jacaranda by Mandy Magro (available 5th October) came from Harlequin. Rose is a recently dumped barrel racer who accepts Ty’s offer of a cottage to focus on her writing. But country life is much richer than she imagined, but is it worth taking a chance on love for?

Honey & Spice by Bolu Babalola is about Kiki and Malakai. Kiki is determined to keep the women of Whitewell University safe from heartbreak, declaring Malakai the ‘Wasteman of Whitewell’. But then to salvage both their reputations, they must involve themselves in a fake relationship.
