Anatomy of a Scandal by Sarah Vaughan

I wasn’t going to review this book. I’m a busy reader with a highbrow rep to protect and it just didn’t seem worthy to me. That said, when I hear that so many people are reading and talking about it, I couldn’t resist throwing my 2 cents in. Apparently, it’s even on the NSW Bar’s […]

Force of Nature by Jane Harper

This is the second book by Jane Harper I have read in the past six months. I was going to put a bit more time between reads but I just couldn’t help myself.  I loved Harper’s first novel,  The Dry, and I’m very happy to report I burned through this one like a raging fever […]

Dunbar by Edward St Aubyn

Braving the Wilderness by Brene Brown

The Trauma Cleaner by Sarah Krasnostein

I have always had a secret fascination about those folk who enter murder scenes to clean them up.  Hells bells, I couldn’t do it but there is something so ghoulishly intriguing about it, don’t you think?  If you, like me, have  a hidden penchant for such things, well dearest Readheads, this book is for you.
