Hello everyone and thanks to all our wonderful readers and reviewers who have contributed to this ever-growing Australian Women Writers Challenge.  73 reviews during April covering 53 titles.

The most reviewed General Fiction novel this month is Josephine Moon’s The Jam Queens which has been received very positively.  Clairesreadandreviews felt that the Jam Queens unfolded “with secrets galore, clashing and challenging personalities, traumas, romance and more which made for a fabulous read.  I absolutely enjoyed this novel and the Ghan trip through the Outback definitely put itself firmly onto my bucket list”.  Theresa Smith Writes states “this is a gorgeous story that will stay with you long after you’ve turned the last page.  It’s coming up to Mother’s Day and you won’t find a better book than this to give as a gift.”  

All we have now is Kaneana May’s second novel, the first one being The One in 2019.  Shelleyrae@Bookdout’s review was glowing and is a recommended highly “Thoughtfully crafted, heartfelt and poignant, All we have now is a pleasure to read.”

Denise Newton Writes submitted a review this month for Nicola Moriarty‘s latest release You need to know.  It certainly sounds like one to pick up if you are after a real page-turner.  “I found this novel to be a page-turner, with some twists that I didn’t see coming along with a couple I did; they all contributed to a satisfying story that has some valuable things to say about our world.  Readers who enjoy contemporary fiction with well drawn characters and themes will enjoy this new one by Nicole Moriarty.”

And to finish off this round up we will include Sally Thorne‘s new novel Second First Impressions.  I love that title!  Helen’s Reviews did find that perhaps it took a while to get into but overall “as I got further in it picked up and I found this a sweet romance of people finding what they wanted and true love and there were some fun parts

Short and sweet round up this month.  Hope you have a great reading weekend (month) ahead.
