Never Knowing by Chevy Stevens
A chilling tale of a young mum trying to find her birth parents only to find her biological father is an infamous serial killer and he is still on the loose. An intriguing story with unexpected twists at the end. The police don’t always get their man. Sometimes it takes a daughter to take matters into her own hands. Great read.
The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connolly
This one is in my top 5 of crime thriller books I have ever read. Yo quote the back page of the book from Scott Turow, “brisk pacing, clever twists, artful writing and an atmosphere of complete authority on every page. Another terrific book from a terrific writer”. Says it all.
Joseph’s Mansions by Richard Pittman with Joe McNally
Another racing industry based novel with many twists and turns. I really enjoyed this one. Great characters and a very interesting story line. Worth seeking out.
The Postmistress by Alison Stuart
I picked this one up from a little book exchange at community camp at Mount Hope. It wasn’t until I started reading that I realised it was based very near to where I was born. It talks about Shady Creek which is only 15km from Warragul and “just over the hill” from my Grandparents farm at Nilma North. The book was a great story set in the mid 1800’s around gold mining. I love reading stories that mention places I have lived or worked or even travelled through. It gives you a better connection to the story. Worth seeking out.
The Other Wife by Michael Robotham
This was another fantastic book with a creative storyline and kept me guessing right up until the end. There are so many quality books out there. It’s just a matter of seeking them out.
