I read this book on a plane, having first promised myself I wouldn’t finish it one go so I’d have some left for the rest of my trip. I broke that promise. Tara Sharp gets herself into – and out of – trouble with a breathtaking speed that kept me turning pages right up until I hit the back cover. Highly recommended.

And while we’re talking about reviews, here is another great one from Aussie Book reviews!
Stage Fright is the third title featuring Tara Sharp, a Private Investigator with the ability to read auras, and, like its predecessors, is action-packed and exciting, as well as humorous. Sharp has an eclectic blend of friends and enemies, including other psychics, bikies, and a luscious toy-boy model. The situations she finds herself in sometimes defy belief, but that is part of her appeal. Great for summer reading!
“Delacourt’s novel is fast-paced, witty and fun. It’s jam packed with popular references, creating a really enjoyable sense of time and place. If you know Perth or Queensland at all you’ll feel particularly at home.
Tara is a great character, pragmatic and strong in her work and her self, but she’s also hopelessly conflicted when it comes to love and friendships. This of course creates some really entertaining twists and turns and creates a really likeable character.
If you like female-lead crime and mysteries, Stage Fright will be just the book for you. Great summer reading, it’s a quick, punchy read.” Read the rest of the review here.

Holly is a 22-year-old nymph who was born in Perth. She now lives in Brisbane, but was raised as a nomad all over Australia in tents and national parks. Holly has just received a BA in Design, but her real passion is for reading and writing. Her favourite word as a 5 year old was venomous, used as an adjective. She has been selling books at her local book-stores for the last 5 years. In her spare time, holly walks in bare feet through her local parks and Bunnings stores, catches trains without a destination, talks to strangers, draws things, writes poetry, and reads anything from fantasy, crime, and fiction, to philosophy, military history and Stephen Fry anything.
