What I love about Linnell's books is how easily she captures the atmosphere of a country town and the way of life to be found there. Magpie's Bend is no different and I quite enjoyed Lara's story - and I found myself smiling whenever Toby's odd socks were mentioned. It was also good to see the issue of consent raised, not just as part of Lara's past but the present too. This book is a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon.
It starts with Lara McIntyre and newcomer to town and journalist Toby thrown together by an accident in the local general story. It is the start of an up and down relationship for these 2 single parents. When that same store is in danger of being sold to out of towners, Lara brings the whole town together to save it and keep it for the community. With fundraisers, raffles and fun runs happening, there is never a dull moment in Bridgefield. Will Lara and Toby realise that they are meant to be together before it is too late.
So many things that I loved about this book but here are some highlights:
A magpie called Vegemite
Basil the kelpie
All the baking - really made me hungry and made me wish that I was friends with Lara
Lara's love of F.R.I.E.N.D.S
It really is a delightful read that had this crime and thriller reader feeling the love.
