When a lethal bushfire tore through Myrtle, nestled in Victoria's breathtaking Otway Ranges, the town's buildings - and the lives of its residents - were left as smouldering ash. For three women in particular, the fire fractured their lives and their relationships.

Eighteen months later, with the flurry of national attention long past, Myrtle stands restored, shiny and new. But is the outside polish just a veneer? Community stalwart Julie thinks tourism could bring back some financial stability to their little corner of the world and soon prods Claire, Bec and Sophie into joining her group. But the scar tissue of trauma runs deep, and as each woman exposes her secrets and faces the damage that day wrought, a shocking truth will emerge that will shake the town to its newly rebuilt foundations...

My Thoughts On The Novel

Home Fires by author Fiona Lowe is simply stunning reading that did not disappoint this reader. Numerous one-eighty degree turns in behaviours by the character’s in the narrative shifted thoughts of the individual character portrayal's for this reader, making for interesting reading. The country backdrop setting and the diverse characters who faced boundless hurdles in the small town of Myrtle all combined for unmissable reading. At times I could not believe how the character miens shifted, but gosh it was great that the author gave the reader a chance to form secondary ideas of where the story might be heading, leaving them in an almost suspended motion. I could not even say who my fave character is in the read because there are many, and the ‘Stitch Bitches’ is priceless. Home Fires by author Fiona Lowe was a fabulous read that was unputdownable.

New Release! The Cafe By The Bridge by Lily Malone

Child psychologist Taylor Woods needs a man. Flashy restaurateur Abel Honeychurch to be specific. Abe can help her get justice for her brother, Will. Taylor knows Abe, too, was scammed by the same woman who broke her brother’s heart and stole everything in his pockets.

But bringing a lying, cheating scammer to justice isn’t easy when all Abe wants to do is forget the whole sorry saga. He’s returned to his home town of Chalk Hill to lick his wounds and repay his debts, renovating his nanna’s house and opening the Chalk ‘n’ Cheese cafe.

He’s miserable. And it would be easier to stay miserable if everyone else around him wasn’t so darn cheerful. It’s wildflower season in Chalk Hill with a cafe full of upbeat bushwalkers, and it’s all Abe can do to remember to put sugar, not salt, in his customers’ cappuccinos. He definitely has no time for the mysterious red–headed guest who admires his cheesecake and adores his flat white.

Taylor’s mission to help her brother seems doomed – how will she gain the trust of a man whose every instinct tells him never to trust a woman again?
