It might take some Christmas magic to make this outback town feel like home…
Eager to make a real difference, English nurse Katie Brooks has travelled halfway around the world to work on an air ambulance in outback Queensland. She was prepared to be a fish out of water, but she hadn’t anticipated how challenging the isolation would be. And she’d certainly never expected to be rescued on day one by Scott Collins: Coorah Creek’s prodigal son, who might just be the best thing about the town.
Meeting Katie is the one bright spot in Scott’s reluctant return to his childhood home. He has nothing but bad memories of growing up. He once vowed never to return, but now he needs to put old ghosts to rest, before beginning a new life as far away as he can get.
Katie is determined to stay. Scott is just as determined to leave. Can a small-town Christmas change their minds?
I grew up with a father and brother who both loved old classic cars. It was inevitable that a bit of that – just a little bit – would rub off on me. I’ve put that in this book.
This book was also prompted by my English husband. While watching the New Year fireworks from beneath Sydney Harbour Bridge, he said it really didn’t seem like Christmas or New Year because it wasn’t snowing.
For many years, I’ve lived a long way from the small Queensland town where I grew up – but I still consider it my home town. Some things you never really leave behind.
I hope you’ll enjoy spending Christmas with the people of Coorah Creek…
