Author Name: 

Finished this late last night because I wanted to read it and because next up (after a bookclub read) it's Katherine Koviac's book The Portrait of Molly Dean.

From the Blurb:

An unsolved murder takes one of Australia’s foremost writers of non-fiction into the 1930s Bohemian demi-monde, exploring the fate of a talented young woman trying to make her way in that artistic, sexualised, ‘liberated’ world.

#amreading The Secrets She Keeps, Michael Robotham

Author Name: 

Turns out that injury to my partner (he's okay) is something that will bite into your reading time. Things ground to a bit of a halt last week what with himself managing to require hospitalisation for a back injury. He's feeling a lot better now and might have got off with one of those dreaded "you're not as young as you think you are" warnings over a back which we all know is dodgy. Anyway, this has been lurking on the reading pile for way too long.,
