Crime, drama, historical fiction - the choice is yours from the Josephine Moon episode's round of recommended books. Suspense and ambiguity set the tone for all three picks. Josephine kicks off with The Music Shop, a novel by Rachel Joyce, set in Margaret Thatcher's dystopian England. From there, the Word of Mouth TV foodies roll out a luscious, mouth-watering round of cookbooks. The predominant theme is Italy, which is appropriate given the Tuscan setting of Three Gold Coins. Let us know your thoughts.

Josephine Moon shares her love of food and Italy

Author Q&A
Josephine Moon reveals herself as something of a foodie in our author Q&A. Not only does food play a central role in all of her novels but at home as well, where she lives on acreage with her family and horses. She also gives us a sneak peak into her next novel, to be published in March, which is themed around coffee (for coffee addicts everywhere!), and shares some of her mother's tips on how to make the perfect potato salad. We'll be incorporating these tips into our Christmas repertoire this year for sure.

Word of Mouth TV dined a-la Tuscany with Josephine Moon, author of the beautiful romance Three Gold Coins, and served a delicious Tuscan white bean soup. Set between Brisbane and a goat farm in Italy with a sweet and sexy romantic hero, Three Gold Coins covered a huge amount of territory. And the ambience was divine, sitting outside in Kate's garden on a balmy Autumn day. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Word of Mouth TV had such a great time interviewing authors at Writing NSW's Kids & Young Adult Festival. The events were packed but we still managed to persuade authors Jaclyn Moriarty, Garth Nix and Belinda Murrell to spare some time to talk about their latest books and share their book and food tips. Everyone else must have had a great time too, because the event trended fourth on Twitter for the day, no mean feat.

Sarah's review
A charming debut novel from author Lauren Chater, The Lace Weaver is set in Estonia, just prior to World War II. Squeezed between the two major powers of the Soviet Union and Germany, Estonia is coveted by both. Maintaining independence is all but impossible, and the Estonians endure great hardship as two evil empires - the Russians, then Germans - occupy their land. The people take great heart from their traditions, particularly lace weaving.
