I have been patiently waiting for a new book by Rosalind James and I was not disappointed. This new series is going to be fantastic. Same style as the Escape to NZ series i.e. warm and loving characters, alpha males, and strong female roles. Truly a wonderful story about Karen who went home to NZ after being betrayed by her fiancé and Jax a soldier in the NZ Defence Force home on medical leave after losing his leg in Afghanistan. Highly recommend this book and anything written by this wonderful author. Thank you Rosalind James for writing such great books.
A few things I love about these books is the continuity- characters reappear, secondary characters get their own story, & my country is beautifully described (#movetonewzealand). Both Karen & Jax have injuries, visible and not, & the way these are worked thru is typical James. I'd recommend that you read the Fierce/ Fractured/ Found series first to get a glimpse of the younger Karen, and more Koru.
Always an automatic purchase for me, Ms James has delivered yet another great destination read and let’s face it, who doesn’t love a NewZealand getaway. It was great to hear Karen’s story, and catch up with old favourites. Loved the addition of a duck! I enjoyed this book however this one was a little long for me. Cheers Michelle in Australia.
I've read all Ms James books and keep purchasing everything she produces. However this is my ultimate favourite. Other reviewers will give you the story line. I just want to say how amazing her writing is. Her poignancy, detail and words are an intelligent readers delight. How she captures not only her characters feelings but the beauty of NZ [and I've been their twice, both North and South Islands], has me looking forward to continuing my joy in her imagination. Thank you Rosalind James.
