Mailbox Monday is a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued. Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. It now has a permanent home at the Mailbox Monday blog. Head over and check out other books received during the last week.
I didn't received any review titles this week. However I had a wonderful meet up and lunch with the Aussie Readers group from Goodreads. Every few months we meet up exchange books and rave about the books we have read. Sometimes we are very fortunate to have some lovely Aussie authors to come along and chat all things books with us.
These are the books I received a our meet up and book swap.
Lawson's Bend by Nicole Hurley-Moore
Published 4th February 2019
In the hot summer of 2008, a tragic accident at the lake on the outskirts of Lawson's Bend forever scars the townsfolk. At an end-of-year celebratory campout, several students from the local high school drown and Henrietta Bolton loses her best friend, Georgie, to the murky waters. Unable to accept this as an accident, Henny runs from the small country town vowing never to come back.
Stephen Drake has never left. Instead, he's tried to settle down, working with his dad on their small farm. Stephen had dreams of a different life but after the night at the lake, nothing seemed important anymore.
Years later, Henny is forced to return to Lawson's Bend when her beloved mother dies. Henny's plan is to finalise her mother's estate, sell the house and get the hell out of town as quickly as possible. But there is Stephen...
Ever since they were kids Stephen has had a soft spot for Henny and it was he who saved her life that night amid the panic. Yet he never had the courage to tell her just how he felt. But now she's back in town, Stephen wonders if he has a second chance.
The Secrets She Keeps by Michael Robotham
Published: 11th July 2017
Everyone has an idea of what their perfect life is. For Agatha, it's Meghan Shaughnessy's.
These two women from vastly different backgrounds have one thing in common - a dangerous secret that could destroy everything they hold dear.
Both will risk everything to hide the truth, but their worlds are about to collide in a shocking act that cannot be undone.
The Secrets She Keeps is a compelling psychological thriller that delves deeply into the psyche of the human mind.
Dead Heat by Bronwyn Parry
Published: 27th March 2012
National Parks Ranger Jo Lockwood is often alone in the wilderness, and she likes it that way – until she discovers the body of a man, brutally murdered.
Detective Nick Matheson’s new posting to the north-west of New South Wales is supposed to be an uneventful return to normal duties and a normal life. He knows organised crime from the inside out and suspects that the victim in the camping ground is not an isolated murder.
Jo is committed to helping the investigation but she has seen the killer’s face and now she’s at risk. Nick’s determined to protect her but as the body count starts mounting, his past and present collide, threatening the people he cares about most.
Trapped in rugged country in scorching summer heat, pursued by
hunters who can’t afford to fail, Nick and Jo will need to trust each
other completely, and use all their skills and knowledge in order to survive.
This is usually where I pick a book that I'm really looking forward to reading but the above three are all by Aussie authors that I love reading so let's just say I can't wait to read all of them!!
