I Owe You One by Sophie Kinsella
I'm a very bad Sophie fan ... I haven't read the last few books she released. Sophie was probably one of the first real adult authors I began reading when I picked up the Shopaholic series in high school. And I had forgotten how delightful her stories were! Sitting down in Big W (yes, I have a Big W with a seat in the book section) I fell in love with the main character in this novel, Fixie, on the first page. The first line really. So I bought the book and was so glad I did as I'd also forgotten how much I love the 'chick lit' or 'women's fiction' or 'rom-com', whatever you want to call it, market that is popular with the UK authors.
A very lovely read for anyone who wants to lose yourself in a good story.
Whitsunday Dawn by Annie Seaton
Hanging out in Kmart I stopped by the book section to see what was on clearance and found this book for $6! Bargain! I've been intrigued but it's always a risk to try new authors - usually you fall in love with them and end up needing to buy a whole bunch of books! Which is probably going to be the case here ...
A great read, especially for anyone who lives or grew up in the Whitsundays. With the dual contemporary/historical storyline, this book keeps you hooked.
Dark Country by Bronwyn Parry
So while I'm on my hunt for border collie books, Bronwyn Parry tells me she has a border collie in her novel ... book three of the Dungarri series. So of course, I can't start a series in the middle, so I completed book 2 this month. Dark Country is a wonderful romantic suspense full of some very dark criminals.
Cannot wait to read Dark Shadows next! Bronwyn's set it up really well and I'm very keen to read about Mark, the hero of this next book.
Her Cattleman Boss by Barbara Hannay
Searching through my Kindle when I was bored, I started this story and was hooked. Such a lovely romance on a Queensland cattle station and just what I needed to lift my spirits and get through my day. Also reminded me how much I love Barbara's stories. Good thing I have a lot of Barbara's Mills and Boon stories on my shelf. I'm sure they'll keep me very entertained.
March's Reading List
Claiming the Cattleman's Heart by Barbara Hannay
I'm halfway through and loving it.
Dark Shadows by Bronwyn Parry
As stated above, this one is on my border collie books list.
My One and Only by Kristan Higgins
An impulse buy last week. I've read the first chapter and will get back to it the moment I stop watching TV before bed instead of reading.
Long Road to Mercy by David Baldacci
I got up to chapter nine during multiple trips to Big W and received this book for Christmas ... but have not yet continued reading it.
So let's see how I do. I'll post again in early April.
