AustCrime - March Wrap Up

This March wrap up is, of course, late. But then, I'm the reader and a lousy blog writer. The books that are keeping me distracted are written by those writer type people. This month has been an interesting bag of ups and downs, highlights and potential. Apologies to those for whom I'm very late with reviews. It's been ridiculously hectic in these parts - what with himself overseas, and the ongoing "dry spell". (Lovely bit of spin that, nicely pitched as a tad of an inconvenience rather than the actuality of bugger all rain for 10 months and counting).

CR - Murder with the Lot, Sue Williams

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Living not that far out of the Mallee these days, I really get the references to the long, boring, god awful dry "spell" that's going on in these parts. Should be interesting to see where we go from here with this as it's funny, and quintessentially bush.

From the Blurb:

A smart, sassy self-appointed private investigator, Cass Tuplin is unforgettable and the town of Rusty Bore will never be the same...
