MY FAVOURITE BOOKS
THE LAVENDER KEEPER
SET during the Second World War this story is brimming with heroism and adventure. It centres around Luc, who grew up on a lavender farm at the bottom of the French Alps. When his family home is overtaken by soldiers he joins the Resistance. His path collides with Lisette, who aims to infiltrate the Germans by winning the affections of a senior officer. I fell in love with Luc and Lisette and didn’t want to say goodbye to them.
THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE
Lisbeth Salander is one of fiction’s most intriguing characters. Feisty, fearsome and thoroughly modern. While the first of Stieg Larsson’s bestselling trilogy has plenty of work to do in setting up the complex storyline, The Girl Who Played With Fire really delves into the mystery behind Lisbeth. As a journalist I love the narrative around investigative journalism.
Almost Home is a brilliant spy novel. Jordan travels the world as a State Department intelligence officer but avoids returning to the scene of a life-changing event. A decade earlier her boyfriend died in a tragic river accident in England — but nothing is as it seems. FOX FOOTY IS A DESIGNATED AUSTRALIAN RULES FOOTBALL CHANNEL ON CHANNEL 506, FOXTEL
