I couldn’t be happier to see Cold Coast shortlisted, with its richly detailed research impeccably integrated into a gripping narrative. So well deserved!
Thanks, Jo. I agree!
An impressive shortlist indeed. I recently red Robyn Mundy’s Wildlight and loved it
I loved it, too. Have you read Cold Coast, Angela?
Not yet, but it’s in my sights ever since you reviewed it, Amanda. I have a think for reading cold climate books in the height of summer 😉
It’s perfect for that, Angela. And a stunning work of fiction all around.
Thank you, Amanda. ☺️ It’s a joyful day.
So exciting, Robyn! You deserve this.
