I'm actually half way through this extremely promising piece of writing.

From the Blurb:

Jessica James had the perfect life. She had a good job, supportive friends, and her husband Geoff and her son Jack both adored her. Everything changed the moment she found out she was having another child. 

Karen Chisholm

Lots and lots of noise about this one.

From the Blurb:

For the past two weeks, seventeen-year-old Kate Bennet has lived against her will in an isolated cabin in a remote beach town--brought there by a mysterious man named Bill. Part captor, part benefactor, Bill calls her Evie and tells her he's hiding her to protect her. That she did something terrible one night back home in Melbourne--something so unspeakable that he had no choice but to take her away. The trouble is, Kate can't remember the night in question.

Karen Chisholm

A nice comic styled novella just because.

From the Blurb:

A rookie spy. Europe on a knife edge. A distinct lack of coffee.

Eva Destruction is back in her first ever assignment. Straight out of the MI6 academy, Eva is on the trail of a supposedly dead fellow agent. It’s a nothing assignment given to a rookie, but when suicide bombers hit a NATO conference the mission is kicked into high gear. Eva chases a carnage of gunfire and explosions across Europe in search of the mysterious shadowy organization, ‘The Tempest’. 

Karen Chisholm

Second in the Rory James series from Bendigo based author Colin King.

From the Blurb:

When a Melbourne couple in witness protection are found assassinated in their bed, zoology student Josh Marshall recognises the address. He quickly realises he had inadvertently been an unseen witness to a bent cop divulging the couple's location to the hitman ... and he has the hard evidence to prove it.

Karen Chisholm

I'm very behind with posting things - got some major website work under way so I'm behind, I'm disorganised and I'm very distracted at the moment. I finished this book night before last - coming out later in November from Echo Publishing, but more on that when the review is posted.

From the Blurb:

An atmospheric crime novel with a burning moral dilemma at its heart.

Karen Chisholm

Started this one last night and what with the heat and never-ending dry it feels like home... ;)

From the Blurb:

For Cass Tuplin, proprietor of the Rusty Bore Takeaway (and definitely not an unlicensed private investigator), it’s weird enough that her neighbour Vern has somehow acquired a lady friend. But then he asks Cass to look into the case of the dead rats someone’s dumped on Joanne’s doorstep.

Karen Chisholm

Started reading the third Georgie Harvey / John Franklin novel by Sandi Wallace last week ... this time set in the Dandenong Ranges, which was a bit of a blast from past - rain / storms / fog / trees down / cold. Vaguely remember how all of that worked.

From the Blurb:

How could police lose three children?

Three missing children.

A wild storm.

A long way from home.

Melbourne journalist Georgie Harvey is on hand when three children disappear from a police-run camp in the Dandenong Ranges.

Karen Chisholm

Cato Kwong is back in the much anticipated fourth novel in the series, and I'm blissfully happy about that.

From the Blurb:

Karen Chisholm

From the shamefully overdue pile (turns out I have quite a few shameful piles...)

From the Blurb:

Cocaine. Construction. Corruption.

The unholy trinity of Sydney

Self-made property mogul Tina Leonard has already lost her business, her home and custody of her children because South East Banking Corporation left her bankrupt. Now it appears she is being framed for the murder of her banker Oliver Randall, a senior executive of the corporation. Her motive? Revenge for ruining her life and her business.

Karen Chisholm

This is the latest in the rural noir pile, and 50 or so pages in feels like a very good entry indeed.

From the Blurb:

Perhaps if Sweetapple hadn’t stopped to help the idiots who had just near run him off the road in their ute, things may have gone entirely differently.

Karen Chisholm

Post the #neddies it is sometimes hard to get back in the reading groove, so I'm starting with something rather different from what I'd normally contemplate going near. So far the plan is working...

From the Blurb:

The Girl on the Train meets Before I Go to Sleep with a dash of Bridget Jones in this chilling tale of love gone horribly wrong …

Karen Chisholm

From the just finished pile.

From the Blurb:

An outsider detective. The vigilante killer with a message. A cold case they both want solved.

From Amazon Bestseller S.D. Rowell comes a heart-pounding crime mystery that will keep you thinking until the final page… 

Karen Chisholm

From the heaving great pile of reading matter that I'm very behind with.

From the Blurb:

When Andy and Mel’s double date turns into a snuff film, Andy fights back, killing one of her attackers, leading to an unwanted aftermath of attention and threats. 

Detective Daniel Connor links the attack to the recent discovery of six female bodies found buried in bushland on Sydney’s Northern Beaches – three double homicides now thought to be part of an organised snuff-film ring. 

Karen Chisholm

You've probably noticed that there are a few of us posting here, and recently it's turning into a bit of a three way tussle who gets in first with a review (okay 2 way, it's rarely me :) ) so given that predictabilty - my turn to read this now.

From the Blurb:
