The Farmer Needs a Wife
Helen Woodley, editor of Australia’s top magazine, had no idea how successful her new column would be. Who knew that if the country’s lovelorn farmers were profiled each week, readers would queue up to date them?
Get ready to meet:
The Artistic Farmer: Greg, who’d rather be doing something creative with his time.
The Confused Farmer: Peter, expecting a nanny for his twins, not a pretty girl wanting romance!
The Unsuspecting Farmer: Matt, who has no idea his photo’s been published… yet.
And finally, Leigh, the beautiful wine grower, who deserves a new chance at romance…
It’s not all haystacks and pitchforks, girls – get ready for a scorching outback read!
