Book review: Suddenly One Summer by Fleur McDonald

Monday, October 23, 2017 Permalink

Fleur McDonald has written nine books, very much centred around life in rural Australia and – as a farmer herself – it’s a world she knows well and one she captures brilliantly in her writing.

I’ve now read three of her romantic suspense novels, two featuring Detective Dave Burrows. It’s not at all necessary to have read others in the series as no backstory / additional context is needed.

Book review: Sapphire Falls by Fleur McDonald

Tuesday, October 25, 2016 Permalink

Dare I admit that I think this is my first Fleur McDonald book? (And on that note can we have a round of applause for my recent spate of courageĀ – in terms of reading outside my genre. Or at least thinking I’m about to.)

I’ve mentioned many times that I avoid romance novels… particularly rural romance the like and I suspect the cover of other books by McDonald might have led me to believe I was aboutĀ to swagger bow-legged down that path. But perhaps I never read the blurbs, as her latest most certainly sounds like my reading bread and butter.
