TALK OF THE TOWN
Can you ever really escape your past?
Lawson Cooper–Jones has two priorities in life – his son, Ned, and the survival of his family dairy farm. Despite the best efforts of town matchmakers, Lawson’s heart belongs still, and only, to his late wife.
Yet, when a flat tyre strands Lawson and Ned in a nearby ghost town, he’s surprised to find a woman living in the old general store. Although shy at first, they take tentative steps towards friendship. Meg soon tells him she thinks she’s sharing her home with a ghost, and they agree to investigate the history of the old building together. Before long sparks begin to fly.
But when another admirer of Lawson, makes it her mission to uncover the truth about the newcomer and Meg’s real identity is revealed, their budding romance comes crashing down. Will he ever be able to forgive her?
A moving story of secrets, love and new beginnings from bestselling Australian author Rachael Johns.
SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT
It’s the opposite of love at first sight…or is it?
Ice-cream maker Tabitha Cooper-Jones is the eternal bridesmaid, everyone’s best mate. Despite facing some serious challenges over the years, she’s built a successful business, she’s adored by her family and is an integral part of her hometown – there’s just one thing missing from her life. But the last thing Tab will allow is a man – or worse, love – to stop her achieving her dream.
Newcomer and teacher, Fergus McWilliams thinks the small community of Walsh will be the perfect place to stay under the radar, but he couldn’t be more wrong. Suddenly, he’s coaching the kids’ cricket team, is inundated with single female supporters and that’s only the beginning.
The only woman who doesn’t seem to have her sights set on Ferg is Tabitha. Despite a disastrous first meeting, circumstances keep throwing them together and no one can deny the chemistry between them. Neither Ferg nor Tab are in the right place for a relationship but “just friends” might be harder than think!
A heart-warming story of overcoming obstacles and learning to love, from bestselling Australian author Rachael Johns.
TALK TO THE HEART
How hard can it be to resist temptation?
The last thing dog breeder, Adeline Walsh, ever thought she’d do was give up her worldly possessions – including iPhone, make-up, expensive snakeskin boots – and join a convent yet, after another unsatisfying one-night stand, and the discovery of a shocking family secret, she finds herself called to a life of poverty, chastity and obedience.
Life with the Sisters of Grace at Smallton Abbey is nothing like Adeline expected. The other sisters quickly become like family and are not at all as goody-two shoes as television had led her to believe. Mother Superior even wants her to get them on NunTok! Adeline feels like she’s found her place in the world and doesn’t even care about the no-sex thing until she meets local tattooist, Holden Campbell, who is as tempting as the devil himself.
Thanks to a devastating accident in his past, Holden is anti-religion – no way he wants to become friends with a ‘nun’, but when their dogs keep bringing them together, they quickly become close. An accidental kiss tests both their resolves, but they are determined to fight the attraction raging between them.
Holden doesn’t believe in love and Adeline isn’t going to risk everything she’s just found for a few hot nights between the sheets. Or is she?
A light-hearted but emotional contemporary retelling of The Sound of Music set in small-town Australia from best-selling Aussie author Rachael Johns.
