On the night of 22 December 1980, a plane crashes on the Franco-Swiss border and is engulfed in flames. 168 out of 169 passengers are killed instantly. The miraculous sole survivor is a three-month-old baby girl. Two families, one rich, the other poor, step forward to claim her, sparking an investigation that will last for almost two decades. Is she Lyse-Rose or Emilie?

Set in Africa, this is a series that I've been very remiss in keeping up to date with.

Currently Reading - The Exit, Helen Fitzgerald

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

It looks like in order to get a reasonable number of books read, you also need to have a very busy weekend. It felt a bit like Spencer Street Station here this weekend which you'd normally think not conducive to much reading - but got a lot done. Must of been sitting down waiting for the next group to drop in :)

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Look I know I shouldn't like these books - they should be the sort of thing I run a mile from. And yet....

From the Blurb:

It’s the beginning of a hot, hot summer in Hobart. Tabitha Darling is in love with the wrong man, and determined to perfect the art of ice cream. Playing amateur detective again is definitely not on the cards—not even when her friends try to lure her into an arty film noir project in the historical town of Flynn.
