Set in, a slightly in the future, San Francisco this cop noir novel will slowly pull you in. The pacing is measured and this new world has disturbing parallels with the current world. As for the ending…well- you don’t expect me to give everything away, do you?

I usually borrow Debbie Macomber books as Audiobooks. It’s like going for a drive with a gossipy friend who knows heaps of peoples and hearing stories of what they have been up to. Her books are generally set in small communities in North America and commonly have romantic elements. I find them undemanding and relatively enjoyable. I suggest you start with the “Cedar Cove” series.

Liane Moriarty writes fun, light, domestic fiction that usually has a single event that is slowly revealed throughout the novel. Great holiday reading – Enjoy!

A full cast audiobook and quite enjoyable. However most of the characters irritated me so much that I was grumbling at them as I drove the car and listened. You will feel like slapping them all at some point – Be warned. The story did follow a number of well worn paths but still managed to be an engaging read. You may well be surprised at the ending – and not necessarily in the way you expected.

Antonia Murphy and family are definitely unlikely farmer transplants from San Francisco to Purua, New Zealand. There are plenty of adventures in rural life and not the gentle, pastoral life they were expecting. Some laugh out loud incidents keep the story flowing smoothly.

This is the first book by this author that I have read but I don’t think it will be the last. Whilst you catch on fairly early as to WHAT has happened it is as the story unfurls that you get the details as to the HOW and the WHY – both becoming creepily apparent. A well-written book – not perfect – but well worth a read.

What a weird book! Like a grown-up, twisted version of Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure with wig-wearing scorpions, Gods, aliens and schlok horror thrown in for fun. Strap yourself in for the fun.
