Kerry Greenwood is one of my favourite authors. She writes fabulous cozy mysteries starring wonderfuly heroines that solve the crime with a whole lotta: sense, fashion, lovers, food and lipstick. It is really worth reading both her Phryne Fisher series and Corinna Chapman. Both are also set in Melbourne. I've just finished A Question of Death which is a lovely collection of short stories about Phryne. A cheer-up and cheers as well (cocktail recipes included).
