'Engaging, complex, enlightening and authentic...' Mrs B's Book Reviews on Without a Doubt When twenty-five year old journalist, Zara Ellison receives her mother's ominous text message, 'Call me when you can', Zara knows it's not good news. Her brother is seriously unwell on thei...r family farm 400 kilometres away and Lynda Ellison needs Zara's help at home. Two weeks later, Zara has left her much-loved city life and is unpacking boxes in her new, rather empty house in Barker. She'd been right in the thick of reporting on an explosive court case in Adelaide. Animal welfare activists had stormed a farm determined to do damage, but it had all gone wrong and one man had lost his life. The case threatened to divide city and country. And there'd been one mysterious man present who, over the five days of the trial, had come to Zara's curious notice. He seemed to have no reason to be there, no-one knew him, nor could she find out anything about him. With her job on the Farming Journal, and an introduction to Detective Dave Burrows, his friendly wife Kim and Dave's second-in-charge, Senior Constable Jack Higgins, Zara's stint in the country isn't as quiet as she'd feared. If only there was a miracle cure for her brother. After more terrible farming accidents and reports of unidentified drones flying over farmlands, Zara is shocked by a chance sighting of that mystery man from the courtroom and by witnessing Jack Higgins in a role she'd never have believed. What is the significance of the mystery man and what is Jack playing at? Wrapped in a love of family, friendship, crime and mystery, Starting From Now is another compelling and enjoyable novel from the authentic voice of Fleur McDonald. 'Where the River Runs is a novel I highly recommend. This delightful cast of characters deliver a cracking story from start to finish.' - Theresa Smith Writes 'Without a Doubt is another fabulous romantic suspense - high on the suspense - novel. I really enjoy Dave's character; he's a normal, down to earth guy, strong, tough and caring. Highly recommended. 5 stars.' - Reading Writing and Riesling
