Fergus McWilliams is the new relief primary school teacher, and being a new member of the town, he is now the talk of the town. All the single women of the town are interested in Ferg, and who wouldn't be, he's McDreamy!!!
This story will pull at your heart strings and you will feel every single emotion with the characters. You really will feel like you are right there in the town living with them. Rachael has done an amazing job of making her characters so relatable and writing the scenery to perfection.
So many times I tried to imagine what towns these ﬁctional towns were written on. Living in the South West of WA where it is set in cattle country. Towns mentioned in the story of Bunbury, Harvey and Brunswick are all just down the road. Do you ﬁnd yourself thinking where is written on, when a book is set in your local area?
As I have said this is the second book in this series but if you ﬁnd yourself wanting to read it before Talk of The Town, then go ahead as it can be read as a stand-alone. But I will say this, you will spoil the ﬁrst book by reading the second one ﬁrst, your choice!!!
Tab is one of those women who just amaze you with their ability to do just about anything whether it’s making amazing ice-cream, helping coach the junior cricket team, running a tea room and bed and breakfast with her sister in law Meg or knitting, all with only one arm. She’s also a warm and loving sister to her brother Lachlan and aunt to his son Ned. I admired her spunk for all of those things but also for her decision to have a baby by herself.
I was on the fence about Fergus for a while. One minute I thought he was the cat’s pyjamas and the next I thought he was an arrogant prat. He seemed to blow hot and cold and it took me just as long as it took Tabitha to work out why. I loved the way he and Tabitha were when they were together—clearly in love even if they didn’t know it. These were two very well crafted characters and it was easy to care about them.
The story itself has a relaxed country feel about it with the town preparing for its hundredth agricultural show, cows being put on and off the milking machine and families coming together for Sunday dinner. It flows beautifully, provides plenty of smiles and definitely kept me turning the pages. I was sad when I had to say goodbye to Ferg and Tab at the end of their story but I’m sure they’ll have many happy years together. This has been a lovely read.
Living in a small country town, for me it can sometimes be hard to get into the rural stories - they can either feel too like my town, or so unlike things that it takes me out of the story
The complete opposite happened for me with this book. I was hooked from the first time Tabitha met Fergus, and I was eagerly turning the pages. I just adore Tab, and I need to be her friend.
I completely understand Fergus being the new guy in town. I was subject to some of the same things when I first did the tree change, and understand his reactions to people and events. They made me laugh at times.
Tab is so strong and independent, however she also shows her vulnerabilities. I want to be her when I grow up.
There are plenty of wonderful secondary characters - if your heart isn't filled with Ned by the time you finish, well, I don't know what to think!
I didn't read Talk Of The Town, however this did not affect my reading and enjoyment of this installment, as we are given enough back story.
Thank you Harper Collins for a review copy
Fergus McWilliams has taken a teaching contract for a few months in the small country community of Walsh to escape a broken engagement and betrayal but Tabitha Cooper Jones didn’t expect sparks to fly with her nephews new teacher.
Even though this is a 2nd in the series, there is no problem with reading this as a stand alone book.
What I loved most about this storyline is the fact there was the attraction and sparks that few between the two major characters and no major angst misunderstanding. Okay, you have to have some tension but it was resolved without being drawn out. I find I’m getting less tolerant of silly misunderstandings as I’m getting older, so it’s always refreshing to read one without it.
Well rounded characters and I’m hoping there will be a third in the series...I can even think of someone I’d like to know more about.....she needs a bit of love.
Thank you to Natgalley and the publisher for a copy to read.
