5 stars *****
After reading March, by this same author, in the Calendar Men series, I was so pleased to discover there was a Calendar Gals series.
March is a wonderful story of the Queensland outback and a beautiful romance.
Emmalynne Peters, a recently retired famous model, starts her new life on a family outback property where she aims to set up an animal sanctuary.
Meeting new neighbour, Nick Johnson, is an interesting and rather adventurous experience too. The humour in the story, very dry most of it and perfect for this outback story, is thoroughly entertaining and delightful. As well, the honesty of the lead characters, toward each other, is so refreshing and enjoyable to read.
Both Emmalynne and Nick are extremely likeable and the more descriptors used to build up their characters, the more I like them both.
Another fabulous aspect is the Aussie outback history that is described so well plus the scenes on the land. Having been to Longreach a few times it felt like I was actually there, walking through the Hall of Fame, driving around town and seeing that same architecture, out in the paddocks under the sun, fantastic memories brought to life.
This fast paced, easy to read story has only one problem for me... I didn’t want it to end!
Her heart called her in another direction and she found herself in the town of Longreach, Queensland. A land baked dry under relentless summer suns, washed away in raging floods, and burned to a crisp by savage fires.
Where men were bred tough, had work roughened hands and big hearts - men like Nick Johnson.
So, on March 3rd, she packed her bags for the last time and walked away - straight into the Australian outback, a place where she’d always thought she belonged.
Had Emmalynne not only found the land she’d been pining for, but also the love of her life? Would the month of March turn out to be one she would never forget?
Come and discover the rugged outback and the people who give it beauty and life.
This is Book 3 in the Calendar Gals Series and is a complete stand alone.
There is no requirement to have read any book previously, or one following.
