Melanie La'Brooy is the author of five novels: Love Struck, The Wish List, Serendipity, The Babymoon and Bittersweet. For several years, Melanie worked for the art auction house Christie's, in both Sydney and Melbourne, where she trained as a specialist in Australian paintings. She later worked for one of the most exclusive commercial art galleries in Australia. Following the success of her debut novel she gave up her career in the art world to become a full-time writer. Melanie is very happily married and has two young sons. She usually lives in Melbourne but is currently residing in South Africa, where she is hoping to fulfil a long-term dream by finally having a genuine reason to wear a safari suit and pith helmet.

I love Melanie La'Brooy and I have all her books. Usually I love giving them to my friends who enjoy an entertaining and easy read. But I was disappointed to find that I wasn't so excited by Bittersweet. This is a very different book for Melanie as family affairs is not the usual topic of discussion for her. I like that she has taken a different approach, but I prefer her earlier novels.show moreby Melissa Auteri
