Meet our March Book of the Month – Star Crossed by Minnie Darke

"Love is written in the stars"

Our March book of the month is a sparkling romantic comedy in which a young journalist tampers with a magazine's horoscopes to win her friend's heart, with unpredictable (and hilarious) results!

When Justine Carmichael (Sagittarius, aspiring journalist and sceptic) bumps into her old friend Nick Jordan (Aquarius, struggling actor and true believer) it could be by chance. Or it could be written in the stars. Justine works at the Alexandria Park Star - and Nick, she now learns, relies on the magazine's astrology column to guide him in life. Looking for a way to get Nick's attention, Justine has the idea of making a few small alterations to 'Aquarius' before it goes to print. It's only a horoscope, after all. What harm could it possibly do?

What our readers think...



A quirky light- hearted read for those who enjoy romantic comedies. When Justine runs into her old childhood friend Nick, her crush on him is quickly renewed. Once she finds out that Nick bases his life choices on the horoscopes that are written in the paper Justine works for, she decides to make a few small changes to them before they go to print, leading to unforeseen effects for everyone - Amanda, QBD Blacktown

Star crossed had me hooked from the start! I'd never had an interest in horoscopes until this book. I found it incredibly clever how Minnie interwined the tales of numerous side characters in an easy to read fashion. The perfect read for anyone who enjoys rom coms or is even slightly interested in horoscopes. Crossing my fingers and toes that this stunning story will become a movie in the future! - Amelia, QBD Strathpine

Justine, a sceptic, employs the power of astrology to gain the attention of Nick, childhood friend and true believer. What harm can come from changing the horoscopes in a magazine, after all? But Justine will learn Nick is not the only Aquarius that takes life advice from the magazine she works at. Lighthearted and humorous, it reminded me of Zoe Foster Blake's easy-to-consume chick lit titles. - Rosie, QBD Carousel
