Liam and Angie used to live together when they were both working in England. However, when Angie had to go back to Australia Liam decided his career was more important and didn't join her. He still regrets that decision. He's back in Australia now, running his grandparents' farm. Liam loves living in the country, but he doesn't intend to stay forever. He wants to return to the city to work as a journalist again. When Angie's back in his life he's desperate to have another chance, but is it fair to ask for one when he intends to leave once more?
Angie is a small town vet. She enjoys living in the countryside and likes her new hometown very much. When Liam enters her practice she's stunned. She had no idea she ended up in the town he grew up in and finds it difficult that he's back to work on the family farm. Liam would love to spend time with Angie again, but he broke her heart once and she guards it carefully. Angie isn't convinced he's back to stay, so she feels she shouldn't get involved. Will Liam convince her to try, even though she's reluctant to let him be part of her life when he has the power to hurt her badly?
Her Outback Surprise is a wonderful story. Liam and Angie have a complicated history. They were both very much in love, but were never completely honest with each other about their feelings. They have the chance to spend some precious moments together again and this time Liam doesn't want to mess things up with Angie. He still has the same plans for his future though and the question if he'd be able to find out what's most important in life before it would be too late kept me on the edge of my seat.
Annie Seaton writes about a fantastic family in a vivid and descriptive way that immediately warmed my heart. I loved reading about Liam and his time on the family farm. He's a born farmer, but being a journalist is something he's always dreamed of. Angie is perfect for him and their beautiful connection made their story a joy to read. There are plenty of sparks and their bond is deep and emotional. I love stories about soul mates and really liked this one. Annie Seaton has written another amazing Prickle Creek story that I highly recommend.
