THE LAVENDER KEEPER

Fiona McIn­tosh

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

Stieg Lars­son

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

Pam Jenoff

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
