Book Blurb –

Nikki Gemmell’s world hanged forever when the body of her elderly mother was found and it became clear she had decided to end her own life. After the immediate shock came the guilt and the horror, for Nikki, her family, relatives and friends. No note was left, so the questions that Elayn’s euthanasia death raised were endless.

April 2017 Wrap Up

April was a great reading month for me this time, not like March. I hardly read anything in March, only three books, but in April I doubled that number. Yay me!

For almost ten years Peter Stefanovic was Channel Nine’s foreign correspondent in Europe, the US, Africa, and Middle East. During that time he witnessed more than his fair share of death and destruction and carried the burden of those images – all while putting his own personal safety very much in the firing line. From flak jackets to tuxedoes. From the funerals of world leaders and icons, to war zones and natural disasters. This is a thrilling account of a life lived on camera, delivering the news wherever it happens, whatever the risk.
