As the first full length offering by this author I was really impressed and delighted once again by all the cultural aspects which really show this rural Australian romance is written by an actual Australian! The instances of damage to fences by kangaroos, and the experience of the outback, as well as the humourous teasing about drop bears.
Sapphire is a spitfire of a character as well, which the feminist in me loves. Shes strong, fierce and independent, but can also be soft when she chooses to - although only on her terms.
Ryan was an interesting character. Although he started out as a bit of a foot-in-mouth oddball whose only redeeming trait was his attractiveness, he quickly gained depth and by the end I wanted to go see his jewellery shop.
The biggest strength of this book is actually in the gritty depth and flavour that is added by the overriding theme of fossicking though. Sapphires passion shines through and all of the details and references to the different rocks and gemstones she finds are really delightful. I think this book is deserving of 5 stars for that experience alone.
Style-wise, it can be a bit odd at first look because so many American novels use " instead of ' for example, but by about half way through the first chapter my brain was able to snap around the style and I barely noticed it after that. I find the same thing with books from the UK as well though.
All in all a great romp through the Australian outback 😁
