Erica Jewell can't worry about hunky hired gun, Jack Jones, and his commitment-phobic ways. She's flat out managing Dega Oil's sponsorship of the Australian Open tennis, and doing a pretty good job of it. That is until a devastating oil rig explosion sends Dega's reputation and share price plummeting.

CR - Monkey Business, Kathryn Ledson

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Continuing my "Australia Day" local reading... as opposed to my everyday local reading ... ;)

From the Blurb:

Erica Jewell reckons being a part-time vigilante is stressful enough, without the added pressures of a demanding day job, annoying family and bossy cat. Now her mysterious lover has vanished on some clandestine mission, without leaving a forwarding address. Erica thinks that's pretty typical of hired gun Jack Jones – he'd rather risk his life than his heart.

Crime writers debate what makes for sparkling prose, sharp plots and much much more with Tanya King-Carmichael, Sisters in Crime National Co-convenor

All three authors have new books out:

AustCrime - February Wrap Up

I've been meaning to do this forever and somehow just never get around to... but there's so much really good Australian Crime Fiction and True Crime floating around at the moment, I think a monthly recap of what's been read / what's been reviewed won't hurt (might actually remind me what I've not posted yet!).

The month started out on a very big high with WEB OF DECEIT by KATHERINE HOWELL - which is just a wow of a book. Read, reviewed and now (im)patiently waiting for another one.

CR - Rough Diamond, Kathryn Ledson

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Considerably lighter than my normal fare, I thought why not. Although I laughed out loud when I got to the acknowledgements, Margareta you're a bloody force of nature....

From the Blurb:

Funny, romantic, and action-packed, Rough Diamond introduces Australia's own Stephanie Plum – the unforgettable Erica Jewell.
