The road home isn't for the faint-hearted...
Peony flower farmer Clancy Parker was born and bred in the Australian high country. Small-town Bundilla is the only place she will ever truly belong, even if staying means remaining alone. The man she'd loved is long gone and single men are as rare as a summer snowfall.
As soon as he could, street artist Heath MacBride escaped his complicated family and traded mountain peaks for city concrete. Now a commission to paint a mural on Bundilla's water tower brings him home. It doesn't matter how long he's been away, the animosity of his cattleman father hasn't waned. As soon as the water tower is painted, he will be gone.
But between steadfast Clancy, who'd once been his muse, a free-spirited kelpie who becomes his shadow and a corrosive family secret, his best laid plans disintegrate. When life again backs him into a corner, will he have no choice but to leave or will he and Clancy have the second chance they'd each thought would forever remain out of reach?
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Quietly flourishing in her childhood hometown in Australia’s Snowy Mountains, flower farmer Clancy Parker has resigned herself to being single. But her carefully preserved status quo is shattered by the sudden arrival of her older brother’s best friend. Heath MacBride has returned to town to paint a commissioned public mural, but he’s still nursing a serious chip on his shoulder regarding his father. He has no intention of staying once the job is done. But as the pair find themselves drawing closer, both feel their personal resolve weakening. The first in a series of character-driven romance novels set in Bundilla, Snowy Mountains Daughter is warm and down-to-earth, setting the stage for further stories in this gorgeous part of the world.
Love the Snowy mountains!
This was a sweet story. I loved the characters & setting. It was so lovely to revisit the snowy mountain huts even if it was only in my imagination.
The descriptions captured the magic of a foggy morning horse ride there & small town dynamic so beautifully.
A delightful, sweet story with a number of unexpected twists. Recommended.
