Say hello to the staff at one of our newest stores this week- QBD Werribee!
They gave us a sneak peek into what they are reading…check it out:
Naked in Death by JD Robb:
If I had to pick my most beloved series of all time, JD Robb’s In Death series would most definitely be in the top 5. Her debut novel Naked in Death combines murder and passion, fast-paced dialogue and the most intriguing story dynamics I have had the pleasure of reading.
Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. And she’s going against her instincts telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire–and a suspect in Eve’s murder investigation.
With over 40 books in the series so far, the iconic characters Detective Eve Dallas and her handsome hubby Roarke show no signs of ever slowing down. – Fiona (Store Manager)
Overruled by Emma Chase:
If you are addicted to anything Sylvia Day or Chantal Fernando, don’t go past Overrulled by Emma Chase.
Stanton Shaw is a Defence Attorney in Washington DC. With his southern drawl, disarming smile, and captivating green eyes, he’s a hard man to say no to.
But his legendary composure is put to the test when he receives an invitation to the wedding of his high school sweetheart, the mother of his beloved ten-year-old daughter.
To save face he begs his ‘friend with benefits’, Sofia Santos to be his date.
Stanton has a choice to make. Beg the the woman from his past to give him another chance or finally realise the sharp tongued Sofia is his happily ever after.
Full of sassy dialogue, humour and the saucy chemistry between Sofia and Stanton made this book a winner for me . Loved it. Great book to start the series. Looking forward to reading the sequel ‘Sustained.’ – Tiffany
Playing the Field By Zoe Foster:

Zoe Foster-Blake’s writing is captivating and honest as always as she writes about a world she was once very familiar with. Playing the Field’s author Zoe Foster-Blake writing is captivating and honest in her second novel and will keep you laughing until the very end. – Emma
Mountain Shadow by Gregory David Roberts:
Mountain Shadow by Gregory David Roberts is the second instalment to the terrific Shantaram, which takes place two years after the events in Shantaram. In Mountain Shadow Lin must learn to survive in an ever changing Bombay, dealing with lost loves, new friends and turbulent gang wars at every corner.
By the first page you can tell that Roberts puts his heart and soul into every word. As an atheist reading his books, I am in awe of how Roberts expresses religion through science, linking them so perfectly that you realise that you can’t have one without the other; that there is a God or some higher power, and we all have a chance to become spiritually enlightened. Science is the product of mankind trying to understand God, and God is just mankind’s way of understanding science. Through this concept, Roberts accommodates readers from all spiritual backgrounds. – Samantha
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas:
A court of thorns and roses is a twist on the classic love story of beauty and the beast.
There is action, romance and of course magic throughout this paranormal tale.
Our heroine Feyre is a young woman fighting to survive with her penniless father and sisters when she suddenly finds herself on the wrong side of a centuries old treaty between humans and faerie. This thrusts her into a life as a captive to Tamlin, a high court fae whose nature she is supposed to distrust and hate but is all as she believed? Is he more than he immediately seems?
When Feyre goes from struggling to feed her family to struggling to save the one she loves you are truly on the edge of your seat devouring every word.
Turns out this heroine is going to have to fight to get her happily ever after.
The ending leads comfortably to the oncoming sequel being released next year which I will definitely be reading! – Caitlyn
A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray:
Intrigued by the beautiful book cover, I found myself reading the entire book in one day! “A Thousand Pieces of You” has just about everything; death, deceit, love, dimension travelling and so much more.
A Thousand Pieces of You revolves around Marguerite and her quest for revenge over her father’s murder. But the only way she can catch the person believed responsible is to travel through alternate dimensions, using her academically acclaimed parents’ invention. On her search for the murderer, Marguerite is exposed to love, loss and the truth to what really happened to her farther.
This book will leave you desperate for the answers about who actually killed Marguerite’s father… and who she is truly able to trust. Totally worth the read! – Brianna
