Baby did a Bad Bad Thing is primarily the story of Gemma Lincoln, an ex-cop who now runs her own private investigating firm, and the issues she faces both morally, mentally, emotionally and sometimes physically by doing so.

When Gemma takes on what appears to be a straight surveillance job (a man suspects his wife is cheating on him and requires proof either way) she is grateful for an ‘easy’ straight-up and down job and believes she can knock it over in a matter of hours, if not days. A conside

I didn't really get into this book. It just seemed a bit all over the place to me with not much actually happening that was interesting until the final 20 or so pages. The main character Gemma seemed a bit annoying due to the rash decisions she makes all the time. Overall it was ok but not a strong story by any means.

The main character, Gemma, is the reason people say women shouldn't be in anything hardline. Crying, screaming, walking around like an airhead into situations she seems to have no clue frustrating to read. An ex-cop? Surely such an airhead couldn't have been one of the finest. The book has so many storylines that none of them end up seeming important. A pointless read.

This was excellent, a real page turner. I read another book by Gabrielle Lord a very long time ago, and I really enjoyed that too. I think I should read more.

Possibly one of the things that appeals to me is that these are set in Australia, and they're just as good a crime novel as any you'd read by some of the more well known international authors.

I bought one of her books for Megan for midsummer. Time for her to reciprocate and lend some to me!

Enjoyed it, like reading a book set in Sydney for a change. Interesting plot and characters.

Gabrielle Lord survived being ‘razed’ by the nuns, acquired an education despite this, and after working in many different areas, sales, teaching, brick-cleaning, peach-picking and packing, and in the Public Service as an employment officer, started writing seriously aged 30.
Her first two manuscripts ended up composting the tomatoes at her market garden – another attempt to make a living – but the
