Maggie Walker has never called Wirra Station home. Orphaned as a child, she spent more time at boarding school, and then working in the city, than she ever spent on the edge of the outback. But when her great aunt dies, Maggie inherits everything and reluctantly returns to tidy the place up before selling.
Ambitious cowboy-next-door Max O’Connor has the means and the desire to buy Wirra Station outright and return it to its former glory. But first, he wants elusive Maggie Walker to know what she’s giving up. He challenges her to live at Wirra Station for three months—with him as farm manager. Just one season–and if she still doesn’t love the place, he’ll gladly pay up and she can be cashed-up and careless, with no ties to anything or anyone.
Three months. Two hearts. One Summer. Roll on.
I enjoyed the book.
This was a fun book to read. Both Maggie and Max are likable, but it seemed at the beginning that Maggie’s self consciousness and prickly personality would prevent her from opening up to Max. Somehow Max, who has always loved Maggie, pushes through all her excuses. A really enjoyable read!
Loved “Maggie’s Run.” Caught me from the first page and kept my attention to the end.
