Look I know I shouldn't like these books - they should be the sort of thing I run a mile from. And yet....

From the Blurb:

It’s the beginning of a hot, hot summer in Hobart. Tabitha Darling is in love with the wrong man, and determined to perfect the art of ice cream. Playing amateur detective again is definitely not on the cards—not even when her friends try to lure her into an arty film noir project in the historical town of Flynn.

Head down catching up with some of the books I've had here for too long and contributing to my quest for the Neddies 2015 Best First Crime entries.

From the Blurb:

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

The third book in the Peter Clancy series sees him in London, working for one of the "red-top" gossip newspapers and getting his love life all out of control. Not sure why these books aren't getting more attention - it's a great series.

From the Blurb:

Australian journo Peter Clancy is in London this time, working for a notorious scandal sheet. While writing salacious stories on celebrities, Clancy poses as a biographer to dig the dirt on drug- and alcohol-raddled Olivia Michaels, once a star of the screen.
