About Standalone Sunday…
Standalone Sunday is a feature created by Megan @ BookslayerReads where each Sunday we will feature a standalone book (not part of a series) that you loved or would recommend! There’s so much focus on books that are part of a series… I thought it’d be nice to focus on some standalone novels, too!
Feel free to join in on this weekly feature by creating your own Standalone Sunday post! And you’re more than welcome to use the image I created. Please link to your post back to Megan @ BookslayerReads post!🙂

The Toorak Jackpot
by Rosemary Macindoe
Kindle Edition, 190 pages
Published August 8th 2016
by Australian eBook Publisher
Before Rupert Murdoch married Jerry Hall and Tony Abbott was Prime Minister of Australia, enterprising shoe salesman Bert Smith got an offer he couldn’t refuse—to live the high life in Melbourne’s premier suburb—Toorak!
There was a catch, however…
He had to tell everyone within cooee that he was a prince—a Toorak prince!
And that’s when all the fun began for Bert!
Writing from her experience growing up in Toorak, Rosemary Macindoe blends a mélange of humour, satire and with a dash of poignancy in “The Toorak Jackpot”. This modern fable, inspired by Dickens’ “Great Expectations” explores what it means to be truly wealthy.
This book is such a fun read!! Love reading books set in Australia!! 😊😊
