Book of the Month

The Long Game by Simon Rowell.

Det. Sergeant Zoe Mayer and her service dog, Harry, were called to the site of a murder on a Sunday afternoon. Zoe had just returned from leave after a particularly traumatic experience and her case worker had deemed her ready for work.

Surfer Ray Carlson has been stabbed in his home not far from the Portsea beach. During the investigation, her partner Charlie was keen to make a quick arrest.
But Zoe’s intuition said it was too easy, too open and shut. And when Zoe did some leg work of her own – with Harry, she came across some anomalies which
could be tied to previous cases.

In Dog Days (A Year with Olive and Mable)  by Andrew Cotter.

For Olive, Mable and Andrew, the last year has been like no other. With normal work cancelled or scaled back for so long, it has been a time to take stock and share experiences – both the everyday and the decidedly odd. Here Andrew takes a sharply observed and hilarious walk through the strangest of days for
all of us, reflecting on how precious our time really is, especially the time we have with
our dogs.

Daughters of the Resistance by Lana Kortechik.

On a train to Germany, Lisa Smirnova is terrified for her life, heading for one of Hitler’s labour camps. Taken from everything she holds dear, Lisa wonders
if she will ever see her family again.

In Nazi-occupied Kiev. Irina Antonova could be arrrested at any moment. Trapped in a job registering the endless deaths around her, she risks her life secretly helping her neighbours, while her husband has joined the resistance, fighting the German advance.

Both women’s lives change forever when Lisa’s train is intercepted by the resistance. Irnina’s husband among them. As Irina fights to protect her family, Lisa is forced to confront the horrors of war – and together they must make an impossible decision.

Daughters of the Resistance | Lana Kortchik

Deception Creek by Fleur McDonald.

Emma Cameron, a recently divorced farmer and a local in Barker, runs Deception Creek, the farm that three generations of her family have owned before her. Every day Emma pushes herself hard on the land, hoping to make ten-year-old memories of a terrible car accident disappear. And now there are more recent nightmares of an ex-husband who refuses to understand how much the farm means to Emma.

When Joel Hammond is released from jail and heads home to Barker, Det. Dave Burrows and Senior Constable Jack Higgins are on high alert. Joel has a long and sorry history with many of the townsfolk and they are not keen to see him home to stay.
