An enthralling rural love story. Sometimes you need to give yourself permission to fall in love.
Kree Garrett’s younger brother Seth is all the family she has left, so when he goes missing in the Australian outback, she doesn’t think twice about leaving her American home to find him. When Seth is rescued Kree vows to find a way to thank the small town of Glenalla. It isn’t long before she falls in love with the tight-knit rural community. But is it really the town she’s falling for?
Ewan Mackenzie has given up everything for his brother’s family, but he can never give enough to assuage his guilt at what happened one dark night, years ago . . . Ewan knows he doesn’t deserve a second chance at happiness, but when beautiful, open-hearted Kree stays to fight to save his home town, he finds it hard to keep his distance.
Can Kree and Ewan leave their pasts behind for long enough to find a future together?
I really enjoyed this book, for a nice sweet outback Australian Romance, I really was drawn in. The Characters of Kree and Ewan are relatable and beautifully written. The Secondary Characters are just as involved and I would love to see them get their own stories as a continuation.
The most exciting element of this novel is that part of the story was based where I use to live in Dubbo NSW, not the most spectacular place but the first book I have read where I can Imagine the scenes in detail because I have been there.
Kree’s Brother Seth becomes lost in the bush while house sitting a farm while traveling around Australia, Kree becomes involved in the Search where she meets Ewan, who has a dark past and plenty of baggage, after Seth is found safe and well Kree stays on so she can look after the farm while her brother continues traveling. The Sexual Tension between Kree and Ewan is Hot as much as the romance is sweet.
All up Down Outback roads is a great Romance set in outback New South Wales and I would really like to see it continue.
