Major new writing talent

“For Reasons of their Own is a thrilling debut novel that announces a major new writing talent to the world.”  Booklovers Review July 2020

Book explores grunty themes

“Just finished reading this book after going to the launch in the weekend… what a page turner. Highly recommend. Chris is a talented new writer exploring some grunty themes of culture, ethnicity, courage, ethical dilemma, relationship – she’s woven a very compelling story.” Kindra Douglas

It transported me right to Melbourne and the convention centre in the first few pages…

“From Plinkers, and I thought she didn’t want to play ukulele anymore but she has holed herself away to write her debut novel. Written in Nelson but set in Melbourne – it transported me right to Melbourne and the convention centre in the first few pages. The nearby semi-rural suburbs hinted at locales yet to be discovered.”  Karen Brown

 

This book is an atmospheric murder mystery set in the heat of an Australian summer.

“This book is an atmospheric murder mystery set in the heat of an Australian summer. It raises the issues of refugees and the agencies that are supposed to look after them. Not only did it make to want to know who did it, it also made me care about DI Gray and her colleagues. A good read.”

A life lived to the full

“Chris has certainly lived an interesting life. This really comes thru in her writing and she’s not scared to say it like it is. It’s refreshing.”

A natural writer

“Chris Stuart is an exciting writer who is making waves on the New Zealand Crime novel scene. Highly recommend!”
