September is the perfect month for heading to a (socially distanced) park with a good book (if you're legally allowed to where you live).
I've got a lineup this month that will transport you out of your own living room and across Australia - and around the world - in search of plot twists and much needed answers.
Start by solving a family mystery and a sudden disappearance in suburban Sydney, before investigating a murky murder in the middle of a girls' trip in Chile, and finally learn about love and the particular pain of being in your twenties in New York and Dublin.
Here are the seven books everyone will be reading in September:
Liane Moriarty's latest novel centres around a family full of secrets.
From the outside, the Delaneys seem like the perfect family. Former tennis coaches Joy and Stan are still winning tournaments after decades in the industry. They've sold their business, their grown children are busy with their own lives, and they're easing themselves in retirement.
Then Joy disappears.
And her kids are forced to reexamine their parents' marriage with fresh eyes.
Read it if you like: Big Little Lies, baby boomers in tennis whites, and non-stop twists.
