Just picked up my latest hold at the library. It‘s huge! 💪🏻

SHUPERBookLover I read this book while on vacation in Australia. Imagine my delight to read in the pages about the Blue Mountains and the little town of Leura which I had just visited and loved. I am sure I visited the bookshop mentioned in the book. Read this book for a heartwarming time with a group of ladies you will love for their book passion and their eventual understanding of each other‘s personalities. Lots of book references. My TBR grew - dang! 5mo

What a ride that was right from the first page.

😢 Sorry Mrs Christie, but this felt rushed. Sadly (because I love Agatha Christie books!) I wouldn‘t recommend this one, it just blurts out the beginning and before you know it you get to the end of each story with nothing really happening in the middle.

Too much Bonza language for me but an interesting read. If you get past the ocker language it has some really good financial advice. I am glad I found it and read it. (Just don‘t think that all us Australians speak like that! Lol.!)
