Stella Bruno Investigates is a series of quick reads – books designed to be read in one sitting.
They’re stories designed to be consumed in one irresistible gulp. The kind you can read on the way to work or before you go to sleep. Something addictive to distract you while you wait in line. Intriguing mysteries to enjoy on the train, in the car, or on a flight for less than the price of a Starbucks coffee, with ten times the kick.
Set in and around Adelaide, South Australia, the stories focus on the criminal investigations led by Detective Sergeant Stella Bruno.
Stella is assisted by Detective Constable Brian Rhodes, who’s approaching retirement, harassed by Detective Inspector Frank Williams, and distracted by Shaun Porter from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.
In addition to all the crime, the stories follow Stella’s developing relationship with Shaun and provide insights into her life as a single mother with a teenage son. You’ll also discover some of the benefits she enjoys being part of an extended Italian family.
If you’ve never been to Australia, this series will give you a little taste of life ‘down under’ where you can experience the North Wind as hot and blustery, and winters without snow and ice.

A little self-indulgent shopping can’t be bad for you, can it?
We’ve all bought ourselves a little something to distract ourselves from the reality of our lives. That’s one of the benefits of living in a consumer society where there’s stuff to buy and easy access to credit.
My weakness is stationery. There is something about paper and pens I find irresistible. The upside of my self-indulgence is I always have a pen and something to write on. The downside is some of those stationery items can be expensive. Fortunately, I do not turn to retail therapy very often.
But, if your self-indulgent shopping involves fashion accessories or clothes, your retail therapy sessions may cost you a lot more than mine.
It’s a sad fact that turning to retail therapy, instead of dealing with life issues, often leads to serious financial distress, especially when that self-indulgent spending generates credit card debt.
If you’re looking at your credit card statement and wondering how things got to this, you might find Everyday Money Managementa useful addition to your library.
