    Love all of the Ilsa Evans books, her writing is incredible, whether it’s using humour or darker storylines like the one in Broken. You never know what you’ll get & each book is a great read.

    Loved, loved, loved reading Trish Morey’s, Stone Castles. What a fantastic Author. Trish’s books captivate the reader right from the front cover with plenty of tears, trials & tribulations to have you hooked all the way through.
    Definitely a must read! ???

    I love reading books written by Juliet M Sampson. Her books leave me on tenterhooks to know how the story will finish up. They are very educative, interesting and romantic.

    Anna Romer is a stand out for me. Brilliant flow of words and her storylines leave you not able to put the book down. Wonderful Australian. GoAnna.

    Karly Lane is a standout. Every book is a “can’t put it down book “. Very clever writer

    tomorrow when the war began is the standout for me.
    I loved and was hooked on that series from the very first page I read, I remember being in high school and having to wait ten months for the next novel to come out.
    It was a long wait but so worth it when you get drawn back into the wonderfully written story by John marsden.
