Huge congratulations to my good writing buddy Cathryn Hein who is celebrating the release of her second rural romance from Penguin Australia, Heart of the Valley. I really enjoyed her first book Promises - and although I'm not a country or horsey girl, I ended up completely falling in love with the beautiful horses in the book. I also love the names Cathryn gives her wonderful equines - have a read of the blurb below to see what I mean!
Brooke Kingston is smart, capable and strongwilled some might
even say stubborn and lives in the beautiful Hunter Valley on her
family property. More at home on horseback than in heels, her life
revolves around her beloved ‘boys’ showjumpers Poddy, Oddy and Sod.
Then a tragic accident leaves Brooke a mess. Newcomer
Lachie Cambridge is hired to manage the farm, and Brooke finds herself
out of a job and out of luck. But she won¹t go without a fight.
What she doesn’t expect is Lachie himself a handsome,
gentle giant with a will to match her own. But with every day that
Lachie stays, Brooke’s future on the farm is more uncertain. Will she be
choose between her home and the man she’s falling for?
A vivid, moving and passionate story of love and redemption from the author of Promises.
