So, you are finally on that beach getaway that you’ve been counting down to.

Well, you can keep surfing that Facebook page, OR, you can read and live the moment!
Beach Rule #1 Romance always works.
Delia is living her dream in the glamour and glitz of Cirque Obélisque, the worlds’ most famous modern circus. When her husband abandons her and their daughter, her life turns upside down until Richard, a charismatic and charming performer, enters her life. But in this close-knit village where everyone knows everyone, does she dare love another?
The Wanderlusters is a backstage pass for a sneak peek at life behind the curtains of a travelling circus community, and how life on the road can make one stronger or tear one apart.
Beach Rule #2. It needs a hook.
The world is watching Singapore.
More specifically, its first serial killer in decades.
With its reputation as a safe, global city in ruins, the authorities turn to detective inspector Stanley Low. As a bipolar detective least qualified for the investigation, he is also the only man capable of understanding what drives the serial killer. But his sanity deteriorates as he mimics the mind of a madman and the sickening truth is yet to be found.
Beach Rule #3 You miss home, even more, when you are (finally) away.
So take a nostalgic flight to 1950s Singapore where Ping, the daughter of Chinatown’s Pipa Queen, and Weng, the boy next door, fall in love.
A story about identity, love and loss, all set against the dramatic backdrop of Singapore River during the rise of Singapore.
