Delightful rural Australian romance. Set in a small town where everyone knows your business...unless you are very sneaky! Beauty therapist, Cash is helping out her friend by running her day spa for her while she's away. She comes to the notice of Griffin, but even when he kisses her, there is no spark. But, Griffin's brother and prodigal son, Linc, takes one look at her and he wants her, too. But is he encroaching on his brother's territory? It only takes one bone-melting kiss to know that the chemistry is there. The Callahans have a lot to contend with just now. It's nearly Christmas, then they are hosting a family wedding straight after, and most of the siblings are home for the events. There will be a few emotions stirred up over this.
This is a typical Karly Lane book...you can't put it down until it's finished! Characters, events, storyline, situations, etc are all expertly discussed, real and topical. Excellent book to read because even though you knew there was another main issue bubbling under the surface, you were never quite sure if or when it would happen - and the bottom line was, it was different to what I'd thought. Now I have to wait anxiously for Lane's next book. Keep 'em coming!!
The Wrong Callahan’s setting is Stringybark Creek, a family farm in Rankins Springs, in the heartland of the NSW Riverina. A small rural town where everyone knows everyone’s business and you can’t make a move without everyone knowing about it. This comes as a bit of a shock to city girl Cash Sullivan who is in town to help out at best friend Savannah’s Day Spa. Cash has always kept to herself but the friendly and welcoming neighbours, the Callahans, soon have her wondering what it would be like as part of a real family.
Cash has always been attracted to ‘bad boys’ and it has always left her heartbroken. Maybe the reserved Griffin Callahan is just who she needs in her life and it’s hard not to spend time with him when the matchmaking Callahan women keep pushing them together.
Linc hadn’t been home to Stringybark Creek since he left the army, two years ago. He was the son that couldn’t get away from the farm fast enough but has returned a hero in everyone’s eyes. As soon as Linc sets eyes on cash he feels a strong attraction. An attraction that he is finding difficult to resist.
Lane has delivered exactly what the genre promises; a rural romance with all the feels and characters to fall in love with (a whole family of them) but not all squeaky clean. Cash has a past she would rather keep hidden but she has turned her life around and is determined not to follow in the footsteps of her parents.
Lane raises the question; do you have a type when it comes to relationships and can this be changed?
The whole Callahan family is back home for Christmas and one of the siblings, Hadley’s New Years Eve wedding. I love the Callahan family but they aren’t as perfect as they seem when you dig a little below the surface.
Behind the romance the story has themes of sibling rivalry, close knit families, the silent but catastrophic PTSD and the all consuming trauma of a war zone. *I received a copy from the publisher
