Here’s what readers are saying:

I love how MS Kees has made me feel part of this town, I can feel the emotions of not only Meg and Jack but of the town folk that I have gotten to know, I feel their love for the town and each other. I loved seeing the chemistry between Meg and Jack grow, the sensual pull ignite and the need to be together grow stronger, the ending was just so beautiful there were so many happy tears. I loved this story it has everything in it, suspense, a bit of magic and a gorgeous romance, this is one that I highly recommend. ~ Helen Sibritt (Goodreads)

Author Juanita Kees did a fabulous job of bringing these two strong characters to heel and making them fall for each other. The storyline had plenty of twists and turns and would keep you engrossed till the end. ~ Nas Dean (Goodreads)

My favourite Juanita Kees’ story yet… I loved this. There are gorgeous scenes in the outback, depicted beautifully by the author, yet filled with the reality of travel in an unforgiving natural environment. As with all Juanita Kees’ stories, the drama is real, the characters are vibrant and human… this is an absolute page turner.  ~ Lily Malone (Goodreads)

I thoroughly enjoyed it. Kees’ writing always includes suspense and mystery, which I love. Her writing also draws me in – each and every book of hers I’ve read, I’ve loved. Keep writing Ms Kees! Highly recommended. ~ Brenda Telford (Goodreads)

No Looking Back by Linda Charles

It is my pleasure to welcome Bindarra Creek author, Linda Charles, to the blog today to talk about her latest release, No Looking Back. How beautiful is that cover?

Hi everyone,

Thank you, Juanita, for inviting me to write to you about my latest book, No Looking Back. It’s set in Bindarra Creek and I introduce new characters and keep up with some old favourites from the earlier books.

I used to live in the Hunter Valley in NSW, and one neighbor had cows and the other had horses. Whenever we approached the cows they would run away, but the horses would always come up to us for pat, a little something to nibble on and follow us around. Needless to say, we fell in love with them. They are beautiful, elegant and intelligent animals.

The story lines in this book follow the stories I’ve gathered over the years from one of my girlfriend’s brother and his friends’ efforts in joining syndications to purchase horses. Some of the syndications are put together by horse trainers, breeders and jockeys. They love being part of the industry, and I’m a witness to their shrug of the shoulders when there’s a loss and sadness when things do not work out and their shares in a horse have to be sold back. This happened last year and I re-tell that tale in ‘What’s in a kiss?’ in the form of Buttercup, a McKenna family favourite horse who didn’t make the grade because of the size of her hooves.

I love going to the horse sales. It’s an opportunity to get up and close to these magnificent horses with bloodlines that bode well for a profitable future. I also learn about the quirky behavior of some of these horses. I haven’t done so yet, but I’m getting closer to actually parting with some of my hard-earned cash to purchase a share in a horse.

In this story, Hannah McKenna loves working with horses and is trying hard to keep it altogether after her first horse syndication deal turns sour. Since then she’s been careful and played life straight, and has had enough. She runs into trouble when she meets Blake Hudson – the man who put together the failed deal – who rescues her when she takes a nasty tumble from a horse.

Blake Hudson is known as Mr Nice Guy, but there are dark shadows in his past. He’s the dealmaker, the perfect go-between who puts together horse syndications and once the deal is done he moves on. Problem is, Hannah is the exception and he can’t keep away, but fears she will walk if she knew the truth about his past.

He hadn’t bargained on dealing with a mischievous third party called attraction.

When she discovers the truth, both realise they could lose everything, including each other.

It’s been a great to be part of the series. You can find No Looking Back at – Amazon –
