A pitch-perfect rural romance of changing relationships and family ties from the bestselling author of Wildflower Ridge.
Between managing a bustling beauty salon, hectic volunteer commitments and the lion's share of parenting two-year-old Claudia, Angie McIntyre barely has time to turn around. And with each passing month, she feels her relationship with fly-in, fly-out boyfriend Rob Jones slipping through her fingers.
When Rob faces retrenchment, and the most fabulous fixer-upper comes onto the market, Angie knows this derelict weatherboard cottage will be the perfect project to draw their little family together.
There's just one catch; the 200-acre property is right next door to Rob's parents in south-west Victoria.
It doesn't take long for rising tensions to set a wedge between the hard-working couple. Instead of drawing them closer together, Angie and Rob have to find out the hard way whether their grand design will be the very thing that tears them apart.
Sparkling rural fiction, straight from the heart.
'Wildflower Ridge is beautifully written with strong characters and a true depiction of life on a farm with all its trials, tribulations... love, family and laughter. I loved this book and didn't want it to end' Christine, Beauty & Lace
