Book Review: A Kiss from Mr Fitzgerald by Natasha Lester

Evie is a woman after my own heart, chasing her dreams and doing whatever she can to make them come true. She also happens to fall in love with a man she doesn’t expect to, and it’s not love at first sight either. I enjoyed the fact that Evie had to work a second job in order to pay for her medical studies and her life. Thomas is the perfect man for her, and it’s easy for the reader to fall in love with him too. In fact, each character is brilliantly written, and there are so many who give the world a real-life feel.

Book Review: The Dry by Jane Harper

The dry starts off with a great hook: the suicide murder committed by Luke as a result of the drought affecting Kiewarra. At the funeral, Falk is clearly seen to be some kind of outcast, and it’s not long before we find out why. He is reunited with old friends and enemies, and the plot quickly thickens, especially when he meets with Sergeant Raco.
