“Falling in Love, Again” by Marilyn Forsyth

Genre: Fiction: Women’s Contemporary Fiction/Romance

Rating: ****

Read: January

A fun and easy read about a young woman who rediscovers her first love in the Opal fields of Australia. Gemma is trying to acquire an opalised fossil for the museum she works for, when she realises that the owner is her first love and the father of her child (unbeknownst to him). The book is full of very real examples of the emotional immaturity of our young selves and how poor decision-making results in lost opportunities – especially in the romance department. Entertaining and engaging.

A fun look at the development of the scooter as a mode of transport and a fashion item. There are plenty of pictures of original scooters, true-to-original restorations, and artistic paint jobs. It’s not just Vespas and Lambrettas – the book covers a range of models and styles. A must for the fan of the scooter.
