Often seen as the weaker sister to red wine, and the silly sister of white, rose wine has a fun, frivolous just-for-the-party reputation. This book adds to and extends that vibe, with rose themed cocktails, food pairings and recipes galore. It also educates the reader into the various  ways of creating rose ( no, it's not all about mixing red and white grapes), the variety in roses of different nations - in fact everything you need to be a rose expert.

London's Covent Garden area has become the scene of some rather grisly and random attacks. Constable Peter Grant has received an eye witness account that could help solve the case, if only the eye witness wasn't a ghost that only Peter can see. Midnight Riot is a murder mystery with a wonderful cast of gods, goddesses and magical detectives. Written by a past Dr Who script writer, it part thriller, part fantasy and all out addictive.

The third and final installment of the Don Tilman saga, sees Don and his family move back to Australia where they come up against problems settling in their son. And with Don's job. And also with Rosie's. In fact, Don's self-given title of World's Best Problem-Solver may be under threat, and some big  life choices are going to have to be made. 

Simsion's wonderful tales about accepting our differences, and not being limited by other's perceptions of us are light heartened and touching. And very funny.
