The Bachelor and Spinster Ball
This town ain’t big enough for the three of us…
Sexy Nick, feisty Bec and dreamy Hailey all grew up together in the tiny town of Farwell Creek. In fact, Nick and Bec were the town’s teen-dream couple, until Bec made a break for it and shook the dust off her heels for the big-city lights. Now she’s back – but Nick doesn’t have romantic feelings for her any more…does he?
Sweet, idealistic Hailey is caught between her old friends, but has too many problems of her own to worry about theirs. Devastated over her parents’ recent deaths, she’s too wrapped up in her thoughts to even think about leaving town or finding love.
It will take a dangerous bush-fire, a black-tie ball under the stars, and a road-trip to help all three friends work out who and what they want – and what they need.
Another gripping romance set against the fabulous backdrop of the Australian outback.
