Set in Queensland’s Sunshine Coast hinterland, Red Dust Rebel is a contemporary small town romance with some sinister undertones for key characters Justine Turner and Nate Kincaid.
Through her early teens Justine has had a thing for Nate and as an adult she’s never found a man to measure up to him. As one of the town’s solicitors she’s comfortably established in the community. All she needs now is a man to love who will love her back and a family of her own.
Nate Kincaid left Elliot’s Crossing in disgrace when he was seventeen and convicted of arson, a crime he didn’t commit. In his time away he’s done well for himself, establishing a solid business in Melbourne. Leaving that and returning to his home town is not in his plans, but with his mother suffering from dementia he’s bound to at least spend some time there no matter what sort of reception he receives.
As soon as Justine and Nate come together you can see the spark of attraction between them and it’s not long before you see the stronger pull of falling in love but with somebody targeting Justing and her business and trying to push Nate out of town it’s clear that their path to true love will not be a smooth one.
I thought this story was well told with mostly believable characters. There were times I wanted to shout at Justine for not seeing what was staring her in the face, and I guess that’s a good sign that I was invested in the story.
This book was my first by Eva Scott and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
