What I am reading now


Lately, with winter upon us I love to read more and hang out next to the fire place, after all the day's work is done.
I can hear my daughter singing upstairs, my son playing guitar and my husband still working next door on his computer. The dog cozies up next to me, expecting a neck rub and perhaps a treat and then I curl up on the couch and open my book! Heavenly moment! Well, until the familiar Maamaaa! call is heard from upstairs....

Last year I had read Kate Morton's The Forgotten Garden and when The Distant Hours came out a couple of month ago I could not wait to find the right moment to begin with it! Kate Morton, a native Australian, lives in Brisbane with her family.
Her first book The House at Riverton is still on my list. I like to tease myself...Another long winter is ahead!


So that's where I am now: An old English castle, family secrets and a young heroine, a wonderful recipe for a tale which has me in it's grip way later then my usual bedtime....
I found Kate Morton's website and check out this fabulous trailer to her new book!

So if you are in with me for a mystery with all the trimmings, go ahead, find a reading nook, get comfortable and open the first page!

  1. I heard recently that Kate Morton is Australia's biggest selling author & yet I haven't read one of her books! That is a shameful admission, so that must change immediately. Enjoy your cosy reading moments.

  2. Millie, thank you, I think if you like a bit of mystery mixed in with history and family saga, you will love her books! I am a fan!

  3. I will hunt her books up for a winter read or two. It was such fun to have a dinner with Millie and MOTH. They are a fun couple.

  4. wow definitely seems like my kind of a read! i love snuggling up on the couch with a good book in winters too!

  5. Wonderful to see you today and thanks for the lovely warm cup of tea and opening your door on a moments notice! Love my little ornament on the tree along with such a fragrant candle! Hope you will come up to the mountain and bring your books and we can read and share good company.
