The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion
It’s good to be back again in the company of Don and Rosie and the next instalment in their lives. This sequel is just as humerous and heart-warming as the first. I reviewed The Rosie Project here if you’re interested in checking that out.
Forty-one-year-old geneticist Don Tillman had never had a second date before he met Rosie.
Now, living in New York City, they have survived ten months and ten days of marriage, even if Don has had to sacrifice standardized meals and embrace unscheduled sex.
But then Rosie drops the mother of all bombshells. And Don must prepare for the biggest challenge of his previously ordered life – while dodging deportation, prosecution and professional disgrace.
Is Don Tillman ready to become the man he always dreamed of being? Or will he revert to his old ways and risk losing Rosie for ever?

The Trouble with Goats and Sheep by Joanna Cannon
A thoroughly delightful read that will particularly appeal to anyone that grew up in the 1970s and 80s…reminiscent of my own childhood. A book that you long to savour but can’t help devouring.
Mrs Creasy is missing and The Avenue is alive with whispers. As the summer shimmers endlessly on, ten-year-olds Grace and Tilly decide to take matters into their own hands.
And as the cul-de-sac starts giving up its secrets, the amateur detectives will find much more than they imagined…
What’s up next?
Short Cut by Leigh Russell
I met Leigh recently at an author / blogger meet up in London and she offered me her book for review. I’m expecting this to be a lot darker than my usual crime thriller reads but I’ll give it a go. This is the first in her DI Geraldine Steel mystery series.
When DI Geraldine Steel relocates to the quiet rural town of Woolsmarsh, she expects to find her new home to be somewhere where nothing much ever happens; a space where she can battle her demons in private.
But when she finds herself pitted against a twisted killer preying on local young women she quickly discovers how wrong she is…
