Mr Right and Other Mongrels - Monique McDonell
Interesting heroine with a clear voice. There's charm and immediacy in the first person narrative with life wisdom woven through the story. The setting (Sydney) is beautifully brought alive. The cast of characters have distinct personalities and there's sense of lives flowing on, intersecting, changing. Perhaps an echo of the transient nature of many Australian coastal communities.

Distinctly Australian and definitely engaging.
