This weekend, I stepped out of my comfort zone and into the sweltering heat of an Australian summer as Lily Malone and I set off on a road trip. Thanks to being hosted by three major Big W stores in Perth, we celebrated the joint release of Country Suspense and The Cafe by the Bridge. We had heaps of fun chatting to readers and signing books.
It was lovely to meet some of our readers from the Australian Rural Fiction Facebook group who braved the forty degree celsius heat to make the trip to their closest store. Management and staff at Big W went above and beyond to make us welcome, with each store having a uniquely different take on setting up the tables. The Belmont store even gave us pretty gold cushions on our chairs to make us comfortable.
Thanks to all store management and staff for an amazing day. And thanks to Harlequin Australia for arranging the event. If you would like to see more photos of the event, please visit my Facebook page.
It’s here at last. The beautiful cover of Shadows over Wongan Creek. And yes, that is a scar on his chest. It’s meant to be there.
Scars symbolise everything these two lovers have been through. Marks that tell a story and say they’re not perfect. Kieran and Fenella wear them with pride because scars are a reminder that they survived. She wears hers on her wrists. He wears his on his heart.
When the shadows ride in Wongan Creek…
Fenella Rose-Waterman is happy running The Cranky Lizard winery until a broken relationship lifts the lid on the Pandora’s Box of her past. After years of repressed memories haunting her dreams, she is forced to face the truth to find justice. But with truth comes a danger that puts everyone she loves at risk.
Kieran Murphy left Wongan Creek a newly-wed and returned a widower. He believes he and his young son will find healing in the town that healed him once before. Instead, he finds the woman he loved running scared, her life in turmoil and her business under threat.
As the shadows of the past gather on the horizon, will they lose their chance of happiness or will they find healing together?
