This book might have a rather innocuous and possibly misleading cover, but underneath lies a fantastic tale! A good wind-up and a satisfying ending. If you want to go to a new world that actually exists, rather than hiding behind sci-fi and fantasy - this is a book for you. A great plot with an impending air of the mysterious - you know something is definitely going to happen, just not sure exactly what...

I stumbled upon this book on the shelf in the library, and because I'm a Queenslander, I thought Id give it a go. At first I thought it was going to be tourist piece aimed at people not from Queensland - she calls the Far North Queensland rainforest the "jungle" (this is the World Heritage Listed Daintree rainforest we're talking about here) and all of the people speak like Steve Irwin (except for Lulu), but the story actually turned out to be pretty good and quite surprising.

It could have done

I think I have read all Jacqueline George's books and, as always, I eagerly looked forward to what comes next. Again, Jacqueline did not let me down. I absolutely loved her new book Falling Into Queensland. Jacqueline takes you on a tropical adventure, this time to Far Forth Queensland, a journey Shirley and her friends will never forget. I felt like I stepped back in time to a small, local town that has as many surprises as crocodiles in the river. I wonder where Jacqueline will take me next

Jacqueline lives in the far north of Queensland, Australia, on the shores of the Coral Sea. She has a house built for the tropical climate - on tall stilts and with walls that open to let the breeze blow through.

She lives with her husband who is easily managed, and her marmalade cat Rudy who definitely isn't.

Jacqueline writes romantic stories because she is an unrepentant romantic at heart. But sh
