Product Description

Helicopter pilot Ellie Porter loves her job. Soaring above the glorious Kakadu National Park, she feels freed from the heavy losses of her beloved family farm and the questions around her father's suicide. But when a search-and-rescue mission on the boundary of the older property reveals unusual excavation works, Ellie vows to investigate.
The last thing she needs is her bad-tempered co-pilot, Kane McLaren, interfering. The son of the current owners of the farm, her attraction to him is a distraction she can't afford, especially when someone threatens to put a stop to her inquiries - by any means necessary.
Ellie will have to trust Kane if she is to have any hope of uncovering the truth of what is really going on. Between Ellie's damage and Kane's secrets, can they find a way to open up to each other before the shadowy forces shut her up... for good?
Kakadu Sunset finalled in the RWA's Romantic Book of the Year 2016 in the long romance category.

The Northern Territory is one of those places I’ve longed to visit for some time now so I was very excited to pick up Annie Seaton’s first romantic suspense novel and discover that she had placed her characters within this terrifyingly beautiful landscape with not only the crocodiles to contend with.

Ellie is still trying to come to terms with the death of her father as well as the loss of her much-loved family farm – the only home she’d ever really known. Trying to put the past behind her, she puts her everything into her work as a helicopter pilot at Makowa Lodge, taking resort guests on flights over the breathtaking expanse of Kakadu National Park.

Kane has arrived in town to not only try and overcome the anxiety he suffers as a consequence of a horrific incident that took place whilst he was in the military, but also be nearer to his ill mother who is living on the old mango farm that Ellie’s family once owned. Hired by the lodge to service and maintain their helicopters, he’s not expecting to come face-to-face with the tiny but sassy and determined Ellie and even more unprepared for the way she makes him feel.

Then of course, there’s the fact that Ellie has discovered that something sinister appears to be afoot at the property bordering the park and has taken it upon herself to investigate why the landscape has changed in such an unnatural way. As the sun sets on Kakadu, Ellie finds herself in rocky waters with her only saving grace being a man who can hopefully put aside his fears!

This is the first I have read by Annie Seaton and I was quite stunned to discover that it is also her first in the sub-genre because her writing is so impressive.

Hold onto your Akubra, (if you don’t have one, get one) and take a wild ride around the Top End of the Northern Territory with Annie Seaton in her fantastic adventure/romance novel “Kakadu Sunset.” It should come with a warning – Beware of crocodiles and sharks!

There are crocodiles a plenty in the waters around the Wold Heritage listed National Park, but there are also plenty of sharks waiting to bite around the Parliament of Darwin.

If you have ever been to Darwin and Kakadu or ever wanted to explore this wondrous site, Annie Seaton will take you on a wild ride of exploration and discovery to delight, entice and thrill. She supplies enough suspense, drama, a tinge of romance, complex yet believable characters, as well as a dose of current political viewpoint along with debatable environmental issues. Annie Seaton has obviously researched not only the location thoroughly, but also everything to do with flying helicopters and the disastrous results of mining so close to a world heritage national park.
I found her descriptions of the area took me back with fond memories to my visit of Kakadu and I couldn’t help laugh when she even included the phrase “Kakadon’t” that I have heard so many times before from people who have visited when it has been far too hot and humid. I also enjoyed her snippets of Darwin after spending two years there myself. It’s amazing that a brief mention of a street name or suburb can spark the flooding of good times shared with new friends in a town that became home for a short while. Yet these descriptions did not distract from the pace of the story telling, for me, they enriched it all the more.

Kakadu Sunset by Annie Seaton is an intricate, complex yet easy to follow story with deep characters. Annie blends together very well intriguing elements of both romance and suspense in Kakadu Sunset, with the suspenseful story line leading the way. I liked that Kakadu Sunset was a multi focal story and that all the pieces fit together so well. I felt like I got a bit of everything in Kakadu Sunset...from corruption, modern day environmental issues, relationships, an evil bully, danger, sadness, and at the same time the peaceful feeling of love and caring.

For Ellie, Kakadu is home and always will be. For Kane, it's a for now home, and he doesn't know what the future will hold. These two are unexpectedly drawn together and make a strong hero and heroine. I liked seeing them get to know each other. I liked that there was a not a lot of overblown drama between them. They felt like mature characters who could be people I know. The situation they find themselves in is unexpected, and their journey is both thrillingly scary at times, and so touching at other times. I like how Annie wove all of this together into a believable plot. The secondary characters are all a necessary part of the story line and they add a lot of depth to Kakadu Sunset.

I love, loved the descriptions of the land that Annie writes. She took me right there...it was a place easy to visualize and feel.

With a great pace and smooth writing that was easy to become absorbed in, I really enjoyed reading Kakadu Sunset and for a brief time becoming part of the place! I'd recommend Kakadu Sunset to any romantic suspense reader.
