              Viking is the pony of Amanda's dreams, but does she have what it takes to win? An exciting middle-grade novel about the thrills and challenges of competitive showjumping, from the bestselling author of Showtym Adventures. Seventeen-year-old Amanda Wilson is in her final year of h...igh school, and has reached a crossroads. Her secret ambition is to make horses her future, but she isn't sure she has what it takes. She's not as forthright and fearless as her eldest sister, Vicki, a champion showjumper and professional horsewoman, and she has no desire to move to the city and study for a career like her arty and glamorous sister Kelly. Then Vicki throws down an irresistible challenge in the form of a young pinto gelding. Viking's potential is huge, if Amanda is prepared to step up and invest in him. As Amanda and Viking learn what they are capable of together and ride their way up the leaderboard towards the Pony of the Year competition, Amanda begins to realise that the one real obstacle to achieving all her dreams is her ability to believe in herself. But will she master her mental game in time for the test of her life? A thrilling new novel from the Wilson sisters inspired by real events and perfect for readers 10 years and older.

              A private investigator returning to the hometown he fled years ago becomes entangled in the disappearance of two teenage girls in this stunning literary crime thriller. Reid left the small town of Manson a decade ago, promising his former Chief of Police boss he'd never return. H...e made a new life in the city, became a PI and turned his back on his old life for good. Now an insurance firm has offered him good money to look into a suspicious car crash, and he finds himself back in the place he grew up - home to his complicated family history, a scarring relationship breakdown and a very public career-ending incident. As Reid's investigation unfolds, nothing is as it seems: rumours are swirling about the well-liked young woman who was driving the car which killed her professor husband, while a second local student has just disappeared. As Reid veers off course from the job he has been paid to do, will he find himself in the dangerous position of taking on the town again? Praise for the critically acclaimed, award-winning novels of J. P.

              'The SUV advanced, without slowing as it passed; the driver probably didn't even register him. Roland watched until it reached the canal crossing, where the curve of the hill and the trees swallowed it up. And then he was alone with his frosted breathing, the mist, another breath..., a sob.' Having returned to the Mackenzie Country to deal with the unexpected death of his brother, Roland has more than enough on his plate. He could do without the demands of a cantankerous neighbour, the complaints of his partner back in Australia and discovering that someone is impersonating him online, stirring up the locals against him. Even the weather is hostile, rendering roads unpassable and his old home an icebox, the fire offering little comfort. And yet, when cycling on the empty roads, cocooned in a snow-muffled landscape, he finds he can confront what he actually feels. A vivid novel about familial love, friendship and how our lives touch, connect and impact upon one another.

              A delightful illustrated novel for children about a goat and a hedgehog who meet in a farm field and become best friends. Goat has a tiny pink shed in a rolling paddock. She likes to stand on top of the little shed and dream of meeting other goats in other paddocks. Sometimes she... looks at the sky and imagines the clouds are her friends, especially when they look like goats bouncing and bounding in their sky paddocks. Most of the time Goat is lonely. She wishes the family in the pink house at the top of the hill would find another goat for the paddock. A best friend goat. One day, while Goat is looking at the sky and dreaming of having a best friend, she hears a strange squeaky sound coming from a ball of prickles. Goat realises it's a hedgehog, and that the strange squeaky noise is crying. This is the beginning of a most unexpected friendship, which somehow works even though Goat is a creature of the day and Hedgehog prefers the night. Life in the paddock is never boring now they can watch the clouds together, and from time to time they are joined by visitors. Even though the two characters never leave their paddock, excitement always has a way of finding them. Chock-full of philosophy and rural charm, Little Tales of Hedgehog and Goat is made magical by Paula Green's prose and Kimberly Andrews' lively illustrations. It's a perfect bedtime chapter book to be enjoyed by child and adult, and all fans of Winnie the Pooh, the Wind in the Willows and Snake and Lizard.

              Dave Letele's incredible life has taken him from footy to failure, crime to community, fat to fit and riches to rags -- and back again. Today, he is an award-winning community leader and life coach who, as the face of Buttabean Motivation, helps literally thousands of ordinary pe...ople achieve their goals. He provides targeted health and fitness programmes, helps young people find jobs, and runs a foodbank for those in need. But it wasn't always like that. He has overcome poverty, obesity, intergenerational trauma, depression, the lure of a life of crime and his own demons. Like Dave says, "I've been at the bottom and I've been at the top, and everywhere in between ... If I can do it, you can. No excuses." This is his story.
