MY SUMMER READING LIST
- Where the Dead Go by Sarah Bailey
I’m a big fan of the Gemma Woodstock series. It’s exciting to see a female detective portrayed like this – so gritty and real – and Sarah always writes absorbing stories.
- The Wife and the Widow by Christian White
I thoroughly enjoyed The Nowhere Child last year and I’m really looking forward to Christian’s second book, which I gather has a brilliant twist along the line.
- The Island of Sea Women by Lisa See
This one sounds glorious: a book about diving and female friendship over decades. It’s intrigued me since I read the premise, and it’s one of those books I’ve been saving until I can savour it.
- Invisible Boys by Holden Sheppard
I’ve watched the run-up to Holden’s debut release and heard so many great things about this story, which tackles what it’s like to be a gay teen in a small town.
- The Lying Room by Nicci French.
This husband-wife writing duo inspired me to try writing psychological suspense, after I read Beneath the Skin in my twenties – and now I’m honoured to be published by Simon & Schuster Australia alongside them! I can’t wait to get stuck in to this one, as they really are masters of the genre.
