Bea's Magical Summer Garden (Audio Download)
Kirsty Ferry / Emily Wilden

What's not to love about Bea's Garden? Its higgledy-piggledy layout, fascinating plants and occasional resident black cat makes it the most charming place to visit on a sunny afternoon. Plus Bea has bees - and her Honey Festival is sure to create a buzz. But not everyone thinks Bea's Garden is the bee's knees. The Man at the Big House next door has been a thorn in Bea's side for the longest time, with his unnecessarily snippy letters about her beautiful climbing plants ruining his 'clean lines'. Could he and his poisonous project manager Carla pose problems for her Festival? Or can Bea rely on the Man's cousin - and her newest annual pass holder - Marcus Rainton to fight her corner? With bee best friends, big black cats, a secret garden gate and a surprising identity reveal, Bea's Garden is surely in line for its most magical summer yet!

Robert Gott / Nicholas Osmond

Up-and-coming junior minister Gregory Buchanan has had a portrait painted of himself by acclaimed artist Sophie White - a painting she intends to enter for this year's Archibald Prize. Until then, Gregory has it in pride of place on his dining-room wall. It's a life-sized standing portrait, practically photographic in nature. And it's a nude. His wife will be home soon, and he thinks the painting will be a pleasant surprise. But even more surprising will be an unexpected accumulation of guests: his sardonic mother, his fundamentalist mother-in-law, and his lycra-clad cycling-enthusiast sister. Plus the state premier Louisa Wetherly - a senior minister has just resigned in scandalous circumstances, and she needs Gregory to step into the spotlight ahead of the coming election. It's going to be a wild afternoon, and an even wilder campaign, to do something about Gregory's naked ambition...

If Professor Maxie Reddick is honest with herself, there's a very personal reason she pursued a career in criminology: the unsolved murder of her sister, Susan, nearly 30 years before, and her belief that the local police force let her family down. Now Maxie has been drafted in to help investigate a murder - nothing particularly unusual about that, except when a fingerprint at the scene provides a shocking and unexpected link to her sister's suspicious death. The link means that Maxie can't be involved in the official police investigation - but Susan's cold case is heating up, and there's no way Maxie is going to let go now, even if she has to stand up to the people who want to make sure the past stays frozen.

There's just one issue: Meggy is nothing like what he'd imagined. And the more time he spends in her company, the more he begins to wonder whether he's met his match...

Registrar Maddie Winter has overseen enough weddings to know that marriage is not just for Christmas (or Valentine's Day) - it's for life, and regardless of whether the ceremony involves specially trained owls, dinosaurs or the police, it should be only the beginning of a story that will end in happily-ever-after. Saying that, Maddie's own married life is far from perfect - her husband, David, is more interested in his phone than in her, and when he suddenly walks out, Maddie's long-held beliefs are put to the test. Except Maddie knows David was never really her 'Mr Ideal'; that was sweet, funny, motorbike-riding Josh Diamond - although obviously not that ideal, as he did dump her to move to the States. Even so, when Josh unexpectedly rides back into town, Maddie begins to wonder whether her happily-ever-after could still be to come.
