Book critic: Karen McMillan - great winter escapes

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:06 pm on 9 July 2019

It's that time of the year when the winter blues can get you down. But even if you can't get away overseas, you can always escape winter by losing yourself in a great book. 

Karen McMillan, author and director of NZ Booklovers has three wonderful books to read that will transport readers to Italy, Spain and Croatia. You can enjoy sun-kissed scenery and fresh air, food and wine, stunning natural beauty and iconic architecture, culture and history. Karen reviews A Dream of Italy by Nicky Pellegrino, The Spanish Promise by Karen Swan and Dubrovnik My Love by Suzanne Brooks-Pincevic.
