These two are engaging stars in an intriguing tale which holds your interest throughout but they’re far from alone in capturing readers’ hearts. Lawson’s son Ned and Meg’s dog Cane both do their best to steal the show and at times they nearly succeed. In addition to these two there’s Lawson’s sister Tabitha, Meg’s neighbour Archie and Eliza, the ghost who lives on Meg’s old home. Always there to offer a voice of reason or a shoulder to cry on Tabitha shines in her role. Archie acts as a father figure for Meg as she navigates her new world and starts to find her feet. As for Eliza, I loved the timely shifting of chairs and slamming of doors when things weren’t going to plan. While all these characters endeared themselves to me in one way or another and while I loved the way this book flowed, what I really loved over and over was the way Lawson’s son Ned kept stealing the show. Author Rachael Johns clearly knows her eight year-olds. Ned’s comment after catching Lawson kissing Meg was priceless: “That was totally gross. Next time you do that make sure I’m not watching.”

What she doesn't expect is visitors in the form of a good looking dairy farmer and his young son who stop right outside her door to fix a flat tyre.
In my first read from this author I found a story that was so very much more than I was expecting. From reading the blurb I was kind of expecting a sweet little country town romance, but there was so much I wasn't expecting. Murder mystery, inter-generational drama, intrigue, the unlikeliest of friendships, and the best and worst of small town life, both open and close-mindedness.
... and what's the point of a ghost town without a ghost story thrown into the mix?
Blending themes of healing and renewal across the seemingly unchanging backdrop of country life, Rachel has fashioned a story that kept me immersed and intrigued, enthralled and entertained, and I can say for sure that this wont be the last book of hers that I read.
