Goldie Bloom’s womb is empty. Not that she minds—only her dead mother’s busybody bestie, Gertrude Hyacinth Clutterbuck, won’t stop harassing her. Goldie’s got other things on her mind, like her wombat’s terrorising of the Dutch running club, fighting her attraction to the infuriatingly gorgeous Detective Max Grayson, and the melon she is asked to mind. (Don’t ask!)
Can this new sea witch navigate her powers, solve a murder, survive her 5K race, and find a way to welcome her new house guest?

A lush and enthralling reimagining of the classic Jane Eyre, set amongst the stars.
Stella Ainsley leaves poverty behind when she quits her engineering job aboard the Stalwart to become a governess on a private ship. On the Rochester, there’s no ration on water, more books than one person could devour in a lifetime, and an AI who seems more friend than robot.
But no one warned Stella that the ship seems to be haunted, nor that it may be involved in a conspiracy that could topple the entire interstellar fleet. Surrounded by mysteries, Stella forges a warm connection with the brooding but kind, 19-year-old Captain Hugo. But as they grow closer, his unpredictable behavior causes suspicions to mount. Without knowing who to trust, Stella must decide whether to follow her head or her heart.

15-year-old Rosie lies in hospital fighting for her life. She’s trying to tell her mother what happened to her, and how she got there, but she can’t speak the words out loud.
Rosie’s mother Toni has a secret. She had a traumatic childhood, and she and her sister Bridget made each other a promise thirty years ago: that they could never speak the truth about what they went through as children, and that they would protect each other without asking for help from others, no matter what…
Rosie was Toni’s second chance to get things right: a happy, talented girl with her whole life ahead of her. Having lost her husband in a tragic accident, Toni has dedicated her life to keeping Rosie safe from harm.
But Rosie has plans that her mother doesn’t know about. She has dreams and ambitions – of love, of a career, of a life beyond the sheltered existence that her mother has created for her. But the secrets Rosie has been keeping have now put her life in danger.
In order to save Rosie, Toni may have to break her lifelong promise to her sister… and open doors to her past she hoped would remain closed forever.
