Turtle Reef - Book 4

Can Zoe protect the reef she loves? Or will fighting to save it mean she loses everything?

From the bestselling author of Billabong Bend, Brumby's Run and Currawong Creek comes a wonderful new novel set against the spectacular beauty of Queensland's far north coast.

        Unlucky-in-love zoologist Zoe King has had enough of Sydney. Seeking a fresh start, she moves to the small sugar town of Kiawa to take up an exciting new role in marine science. She is charmed by the region's beauty – by its rivers and rainforests. By its vast cane fields, sweeping from the foothills down to the rocky coral coast.  And by its people – its farmers and fishermen, unhurried and down to earth, proud of their traditions.

        Her work at the Reef Centre provides all the passion she needs, and Zoe finds a friend in Bridget, the centre's director. The last thing she expects is to fall for her boss's boyfriend, cane king Quinn Cooper. Zoe focuses on her research and tries to ignore the growing attraction between them. But things aren't quite adding up at the Reef Centre, and when animals on the reef begin to sicken and die, Zoe's personal and professional worlds collide. She faces a terrible choice. Will protecting the reef mean betraying the man she loves?

Journey's End - Book 5

Sometimes a tree change might be just what you need

From the bestselling author of Brumby's Run, Currawong Creek and Turtle Reef comes an inspiring story of family, friendship and the healing power of love.

        When Sydney botanist Kim Sullivan and her husband inherit Journey's End, a rundown farm high on the Great Eastern Escarpment, they dream of one day restoring it to its natural state. Ten years later, however, Kim is tragically widowed. Selling up is the only practical option, so she and her children head to the mountains to organise the sale. The last thing Kim expects is for Journey's End to cast its wild spell on them all.

The family decides to stay, and Kim forges on with plans to rewild the property, propagating plants and acquiring a menagerie of native animals. But wayward wildlife, hostile farmers and her own lingering grief make the task seem hopeless. That is until she meets the mysterious Taj, a man who has a way with animals. Kim begins to feel that she might find love again. But Taj has his own tragic past – one that could drive a wedge between them that cannot be overcome …

Wasp Season - Book 6

You'll never see a wasp in the same way again …

        When Beth's marriage ends, she's determined to build a new life in the country for herself and her children. A quiet life lived closer to nature. She thinks she's achieved the impossible – a civilised separation, a happy home and a cordial relationship with her estranged husband, Mark. There's even the promise of a new love. But when Mark tries to change the rules, Beth's peaceful world is turned upside down.

        Disturbingly, she also discovers that European wasps have invaded her garden. Beth's obsession with them and their queen holds up a distorted mirror to the human drama. As the chaos in Beth's life gathers momentum, connections between the two worlds come sharply into focus. The lives of Beth and the others are neither separate to, nor safe from, the natural world.
