Being based in the Yarra Valley gives me locality to so much beauty, culture and activity while still being only an hour away from Melbourne.

Why not escape the cold by diving into a book?
Winter is that time of year which usually results in everyone spending more time indoors, keeping warm, than they do for the rest of the seasons.
There is one great activity that is perfect for those lovely winter days by the fire or being rugged up in bed - Reading!
And also, if you borrow your reading material from a Library, it is a FREE activity!
These are my five top recommendations for this Winter:
Into the Water by Paula Hawkins
Paula is the author of the bestseller "The Girl on the Train" and this book has been eagerly anticipated. This book is another intriguing story which will keep you on your toes with its twists and turns.
Ruth's previous novel "In a Dark Dark Wood" was one of those books I just could not put down. I am about to start reading "The Woman in Cabin 10" and I am hoping it has the same effect. Ruth's writing is clear and the characters are well written.
This book was the winner of the 2017 Stella Prize for Women Authors. It is an interesting read, following the lead character and his search for the meaning of his life set with the Museum as the backdrop.
This is Graeme's third novel. His previous two books being "The Rosie Project" and "The Rosie Effect". His quirky characters and interesting storytelling make his books highly entertaining. I especially enjoyed the references of his main protagonists' song recollections in this book.
Goodwood is musician Holly's first novel. The story is set in a small town which has been irrevocably changed after the disappearance of two residents in 1992. Everyone knows everything in a small town. Or do they? A fabulous read.
