LEST WE FORGIVE – PRE-ORDER NOW OPEN
A late night. An icy road. A car wrapped around a tree.
When Detective Liz Moorland stares at the lifeless faces of her ex-colleague’s daughter and son-in-law, she knows it is enough to push Vince Carter over the edge.
Vince, a bitter and reclusive retired cop, was once a hero to many. But in his eyes, he has failed those he most loved. Estranged from his daughter before her death, the enormity of his loss is immeasurable.
While Liz’s hands are full chasing an escaped criminal, Vince—alongside his fight for custody of Melanie, his eight-year-old granddaughter and sole survivor of the wreck—pieces together a compelling theory that the crash was no accident.
Vince’s theory provides Liz with an unexpected connection to her case and simultaneously raises concerns over Melanie’s safety and what she saw that fateful night.
Those concerns are justified. One person knows what the little girl saw.
Lest We Forgive is book one in a gripping Melbourne series featuring Homicide Detective Liz Moorland. Book two will shortly be available for pre-order.

A PERFECT DANGER – OUT NOW!
Her perfect tree change is about to turn deadly…
Nellie Sinclair swaps her life in Sydney for the hamlet of Glenmeer, close to Bindarra Creek. Buying a farmhouse sight unseen, she arrives to find no power, a leaky roof, and the unsettling discovery that somebody has recently been inside.
Kane Maxwell, the local National Park tour guide, is drawn to the quiet and serious young woman next door but his gut tells him there’s a whole lot more to her change of lifestyle than she admits. Even as their friendship moves toward something unexpected and wonderful, she’s looking over her shoulder and jumping at shadows.
Determined to put her past behind her and build a new graphic design business, Nellie takes Kane on as her first client and they hike into the rugged bushland to take photographs for his new website. But during a cave visit they make a disturbing discovery – a recent campfire scattered with items Nellie recognises. Finding themselves trapped by a killer, Nellie makes a life-changing decision.
She has to keep Kane safe. Facing the danger she’s run from is the only way. Even with her own life at stake.
A Perfect Danger is the seventh and final book in the Bindarra Creek Mystery series. All are exciting standalones written by seven bestselling authors, set in and around the beloved small town on rural Australia.
TANGLED BY TINSEL – OUT NOW
Miranda Layton has too many balls in the air at a time – if running her grooming salon and building her dog walking clientele isn’t enough, there’s her elderly grandfather who wanders off at the drop of a hat. As much as she adores her life in Bindarra Creek, she is always just one catastrophe away from failure.
Blair Maxwell is at a loose end on a break from his job as a sports physiotherapist in the city. He’s home to spend Christmas with his brother and to catch up with old friends, including Miranda, but then he’s back to his normal life.
Falling off a ladder while setting up decorations in the salon is the last thing Miranda needed. Rather than lose clients, she reluctantly allows Blair to take over dog walking while she heals. Working together brings out new feelings – not the kind she wants. After all, she’s too busy for love and his home is far away.
Unless a missing loved one and the magic of Christmas can work a miracle for them both.
A sweet and clean Bindarra Creek Christmas romance novella. Paperbacks available from Amazon and soon from Phillipa. Already a #1 bestseller (Australian & Oceania Literature)
