Beautiful Malice – Rebecca James

Australian edition

Just finished reading this page-turner by Armidale writer, Rebecca James, who I saw last week at the SWF. This book has it all – youth, innocence, guilt, love, betrayal, death, romance, relationships, lust, likeable characters, more betrayal…you get the picture. Rebecca has shown what it means to get your characters in trouble and keep them there. A great lesson for writers in plotting, structure and upping the stakes. And what makes you want to keep reading!

Highly recommended.
