Hi,
I've just finished 'Pictures Of Lilly' by Paige Toone and would really love to read more chick lit that's set in Australia.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks so much : )

Have you read anything by Liane Moriarty? I liked "What Alice forgot" a lot.

Hi, I'm a Sydney-based author and two days ago released this chick lit on Kindle:

Like Casablanca
What does internet dating and Casablanca have in common? Nothing, unless you go to Rick's Cafe and find out what antiques dealer and dating blogger, Cat Ryan, is up to.
Cat's doing research for her internet dating blog gig, and the place she chooses to meet her many dates is at Rick's Cafe in Sydney. But what of its disturbingly handsome owner, Rick Blake? Cat wonders what he thinks, seeing her with a different male all the time. What's more, why does this bother Cat so much? It's not like she wants any involvement after her recent break up with Josh, her cheating ex. Besides, it looks like Rick is trying to get back together with his ex-wife, Denise. So Cat decides to play it safe, but her heart has different ideas. (Introductory offer price at US0.99c until end of Feb)

Hope this helps! Cheers, Sylvia

I'm the same. I love sydney and books set there. Try Maggie Alderson. She has written a couple of good ones.

Try A Victorian Rose by Jan Pollard, my mother. (I live in NSW) It begins in 1860 with a family emigrating to Australia and finishes in 1920 with the adopted son's return from fighting in the Somme, having deserted his English fiancée after WW1 and returning to find her. Its in hardback and on Kindle and is a good read.

The same author Paige Toon also wrote 'Lucy in the Sky'. The first half of that novel is set in Australia

Otherwise I would also recommend What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty
