Most often I think of Australia as Down Under, but I‘m stretching this to include New Zealand 🇳🇿 This book not only takes place in New Zealand, but the author is a Kiwi!
Kate Morton is my favourite writer from #DownUnder 🇦🇺
The tagged book is my favourite, followed by The Forgotten Garden. I could have done without The Clockmaker‘s Daughter. It wasn‘t up to Morton‘s usual standards IMHO.
I was going to show my plethora of cookbooks from chefs from #DownUnder 😋🥄(I have multiple cookbooks from Jill Dupleix, Kylie Kwong, Curtis Stone, Bill Granger & Donna Hay) but because there are so many, instead I went with a handful of fiction titles that are set in Australia. Of course The Thorn Birds is the grande dame of my shelves ever since I read my mom's copy one high school summer before the miniseries came out. 💛
(Day 26 - #DownUnder)
*The Brock & Kolla series, written by Barry Maitland (who calls Australia home), is one of my favorite police procedural series ever. He has written 13 of them (of which the 13th, tagged, is unavailable in the US 😭), all set in Scotland Yard. He has one stand-alone, and one trilogy, called the Belltree trilogy, named after the detective featured in those books. Above are some of the settings of his books.
