'Wow! 'A Place to Stay' by Aussie author Jennie Jones was an intriguing, suspenseful and thoroughly enjoyable read. While the subject of domestic violence is always serious, the light-hearted and humerous moments lifted the grimness and caused me on quite a few occasions to laugh out loud!' — Brenda Telford (Netgalley)
'Without a doubt A Place To Stay has to be my favourite Jennie Jones book to date. Full of mystery and intrigue, sizzling chemistry and some rather hilarious characters, it's a book that will appeal to a variety of different age groups and reading tastes. A Place To Stay looks set to be the first of a number of books in the Rangeland series, and I for one am cheering with this news. Keep your eyes pealed, because I think Jones is about to take off in a big way with this new series.' — Jess Fitzpatrick (Netgalley)
About the Author
Jennie Jones loved everything with a romantic element from an early age. That's why she became an actor before she started writing, touring the UK's grand old theatres, becoming someone else for two hours, eight performances a week, and loving every second.
She's been an Aussie with Welsh roots for over twenty years and wouldn't have it any other way. She's been writing for six years and says she can't imagine writing, like acting, will ever get boring.
Jennie currently lives in a small country town in Perth, Western Australia with Jonesey the boy cat and Zena the warrior girl cat. Plus Churchill the 50 kilo rescue dog, and the occasional sighting of her twenty year old daughter.
