Australian romance authors are coming up trumps

The Country Girl by Cathryn Hein

UTILISING her skills during university Tash Ranger becomes an unlikely star in the food blogging world.

After snagging success in the city she lands a major cookbook deal and returns home to the family farm to work on her book.

It’s a bittersweet homecoming with her best friend Maddy severely injured in a horse riding accident with no hope of recovery.

Add Maddy’s fiancé Patrick whose daily battles of despair won’t allow him to let go and move on with his life, Tash gets caught up in the drama.

Her endless joy and energy for her everyday life provide an opportunity for Patrick to finally come to terms with his grief and develop feelings he hasn’t felt since Maddy.

Will the friendship Tash and Patrick develop blossom into something more or will the tragedies of the past dictate their future?

This is the 12th novel for Hein and her character and story development with its distinct Australian vernacular provide the perfect novel for those who love Australian romance.

Water Under the Bridge by Lily Malone

SET in a small town in Western Australia’s south, protagonist Ella decides to move away from the city and start again with a new career in real estate.

It’s not easy in a small town where she feels like an outsider and even harder for her 10 year old son who hasn’t taken the move in the best spirits.

Ella has to juggle work, motherhood and the ghosts of her Olympic swimming past to be able to live the life she really wants for herself.

Add a little romance into the mix and Ella will have to use all her persistence and determination she holds inside to get her life back on course.

This is Malone’s fourth offering and she works well developing the small-town characters and subplots to give the story a real edge combining romance, motherhood, along with life’s ups and downs she weaves it into a heart-warming story any lover of romantic fiction will enjoy.

Published by Harlequin and available at all good book stores.

RRP $29.99.
