Don't you just hate sappy romance novels? I sure do. In fact, I didn't want to like this one. I read this book because the only reading material my mother has to offer are romance novels and being bored, I picked this one up off of her bedside table and started to read.
Thanks, mom. I have just added Lindsay Armstrong to my list of favorite authors. I was captured by the author's wit and cast of characters from the very first paragraph. It was a peek at life in the "Outback" portion of Australia, which in itself is a refreshing perspective.
The hero and heroine are such real people, I'm sure I know them both personally. The relationship that develops between them is so believable, I threw down the book in dismay several times! The interplay between the female rancher and the millionare "playboy" type is vastly entertaining,although frustrating for the reader at times.
Lindsay Armstrong has a fabulous ablility to use words to completely overtake the reader's imagination. A few times I thought I was in Australia looking at the vista and had to brace myself for the trip back home!
I plan to add this author's work to my bookshelves quickly. I highly recommend "Outback Mistress" to all readers.
