Caboolture Library
Caboolture Library, 4 Hasking Street,, Caboolture QLD 4510 Australia
Join best-selling crime author Candice Fox as she returns to Crimson Lake for her latest novel, Gone by Midnight. Doors open 6.30pm, talk starts at 7pm. Bookings essential.

Crimson Lake is where bad people come to disappear – and where eight-year-old boys vanish into thin air…On the fifth floor of the White Caps Hotel, four young friends are left alone while their parents dine downstairs. But when Sara Farrow checks on the children at midnight, her son is missing. The boys swear they stayed in their room, and CCTV confirms Richie has not left the building. Despite a thorough search, no trace of the child is found. Distrustful of the police, Sara turns to Crimson Lake's unlikeliest private investigators: disgraced cop Ted Conkaffey and convicted killer Amanda Pharrell. For Ted, the case couldn’t have come at a worse time. Two years ago a false accusation robbed him of his career, his reputation and most importantly his family. But now Lillian, the daughter he barely knows, is coming to stay in his ramshackle cottage by the lake. Ted must dredge up the area's worst characters to find a missing boy. And the kind of danger he uncovers could well put his own child in deadly peril.

Bankstown born and bred, Candice currently lives in Sydney. Candice Fox will be signing books after her talk. Buy a book at the event, or bring your own copy along to be signed!

*Please note that bookings are essential for this event. 

From the bestselling author of The Secrets of Midwives and The Family Next Door comes a compelling new page-turner about the trickiest of relationships - The Mother-In-Law. Doors open 6.30pm, talk starts at 7pm.

"Someone once told me that you have two families in your life - the one you are born into and the one you choose. Yes, you may get to choose your partner, but you don't choose your mother-in-law. The cackling mercenaries of fate determine it all."

From the moment Lucy met Diana, she was kept at arm's length. Diana is exquisitely polite, but Lucy knows, even after marrying Oliver, that they'll never have the closeness she'd been hoping for. But who could fault Diana? She was a pillar of the community, an advocate for social justice, the matriarch of a loving family. Lucy had wanted so much to please her new mother-in-law. That was ten years ago. Now, Diana has been found dead, leaving a suicide note. But the autopsy reveals evidence of suffocation. And everyone in the family is hiding something ...

Sally Hepworth has lived around the world, spending extended periods in Singapore, the UK and Canada, where she worked in event management and human resources. She is the author of The Secrets of Midwives, The Things We Keep, The Mother's Promise and The Family Next Door. Sally lives in Melbourne, Australia, with her husband and children. Sally Hepworth will sign books after her talk. Books will be available to purchase at the event. This event is presented in partnership with Pan Macmillan Australia and Dymocks North Lakes.

When a lethal bushfire tore through Myrtle, nestled in Victoria's breathtaking Otway Ranges, the town's buildings - and the lives of its residents - were left as smouldering ash. For three women in particular, the fire fractured their lives and their relationships. Eighteen months later, with the flurry of national attention long past, Myrtle stands restored, shiny and new. But is the outside polish just a veneer? Community stalwart Julie thinks tourism could bring back some financial stability to their little corner of the world and soon prods Claire, Bec and Sophie into joining her group. But the scar tissue of trauma runs deep, and as each woman exposes her secrets and faces the damage that day wrought, a shocking truth will emerge that will shake the town to its newly rebuilt foundations...

With her sharp eye for human foibles, bestselling author Fiona Lowe writes an evocative tale of everyday people fighting for themselves, their families and their town - as only this distinctively Australian storyteller can.

*Booking link opens 29th January 2019

In Walking Free, Munjed Al Muderis described his experience as a refugee fleeing Saddam Hussein's Iraq and his early work as a pioneering orthopaedic surgeon at the cutting edge of world medicine. In his new book, Going Back, Munjed shares the extraordinary journey that his life-changing new surgical technique has taken him on. Through osseointegration, he implants titanium rods into the human skeleton and attaches robotic limbs, allowing patients permanent mobility.

Munjed has performed this operation on hundreds of Australian civilians. But nothing has been as extraordinary as his return to Iraq after eighteen years to operate on amputees wounded in the horrific war against ISIS. These stories are told from the unique perspective of a refugee returning to the place of his birth as a celebrated international surgeon.

In the wake of loss and devastation, Alex must cast aside her grief to seek aid from those who banished the Meyarins long ago. But the proud Tia Aurans care little for the woes of mortals and demand that Alex—and her friends—undergo the Gates of Testing to prove their world is worth saving. With an ancient prophecy looming, Alex must confront the secrets of her past if she is to survive long enough to see the future. For if she returns to Medora without the Tia Aurans by her side, all hope will be lost. In this explosive conclusion to The Medoran Chronicles, the fate of Medora hangs in the balance as Alex readies herself to face Aven one final time. Who will survive, and who will fall?

Join us for the launch of Vardaesia with Lynette Noni on Saturday, February 23 at 12.00pm. Lynette will be interviewed by Annie McCann and the book signing will follow after. Seating is limited so please email your RSVP to

Shop 301, Westfield Shopping Centre, CHATSWOOD NSW 2067 Australia
Kerri Turner will be instore signing copies of her wonderful debut book The Last of the Romanov Dancers.

Valentina Yershova’s position in the Romanovs’ Imperial Russian Ballet is the only thing that keeps her from the clutches of poverty. With implacable determination, she has clawed her way through the ranks, relying not only on her talent but her alliances with influential men. Then Luka Zhirkov – the gifted son of a factory worker – joins the company, and suddenly everything she has built is put at risk. For Luka, being accepted into the company fulfils a lifelong dream. But in the eyes of his proletariat father, it makes him a traitor.

As civil war tightens its grip and the country starves, Luka is torn between his growing connection to Valentina and his guilt for their lavish way of life. The Imperial Russian Ballet has become the ultimate symbol of Romanov indulgence, and soon the lovers are forced to choose: their country, their art or each other…

Kerri Turner lives in Sydney, with her husband and miniature schnauzer. She trained from a young age to become a ballerina, but life had other ideas for her. After gaining degrees in dance and then writing, she combined her love of ballet, history and books to discover a passion for writing which far outweighed anything she’d done before. She still dances, passing on the joy of ballet to those who never got the chance to experience it-or thought their dancing years were behind them-by teaching adults-only and over55s classes.
