#amreading Aukati, Michalia Arathimos

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

It's that time of the year where posting becomes erratic and reading consumes every spare moment. Sometimes life is hard ;)

From the Blurb:

“There was Polly’s tokotoko on the ground. Carved and polished, with its eel head, the snout inlaid with pāua. Alexia picked it up and cracked it across the cop’s shoulders. She raised it again and hit and hit. She would stop this.”

#amreading The Hidden Room, Stella Duffy

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Started this over the weekend - new crime fiction after a long break from Stella Duffy.

From the Blurb:

Life is good for Laurie and Martha. They have three great kids, a much-loved home in the countryside, and after years of struggle, Laura's career as an architect is taking off at last. Everything's perfect.

Except, it isn't.

Someone is about to walk into their happy family and tear it apart.

#amreading The Maori Detective, D.A. Crossman

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Diving into my New Zealand piles at the moment, this one became this weekend's reading for no particular reason.

From the Blurb:

He’s lost his wife, his job, and his mana. So what now? A PI? He really couldn’t get used to it. Traipsing around after unfaithful wives and little old ladies’ lost dogs? Was this the future for Carlos Wallace? And what of the beautiful matakite? Wasn’t it a sin to fall in love with your cousin?
