I know it’s far, far too early to be talking about Christmas, but I’m getting excited already because this year I’m inviting all my readers to spend Christmas at Coorah Creek.
A funny thing happened last year.
I had just finished writing The Wild One – and was thinking … what next?
Then I heard someone mention Christmas.
I got to thinking about the difference between the chilly (and sometimes snowy) Christmas where I live in England – and the Christmas experiences of my childhood, in the blazing heat of mid-summer in Australia.
So this book was born….
What if you don’t want to be home for Christmas?
Spending Christmas away from home is one thing but English nurse Katie Brooks is spending hers in Coorah Creek; a small town in the Australian outback.
Katie was certain leaving London was the right decision, but her new job in the outback is more challenging than she could have ever imagined.
Scott Collins rescued Katie on her first day in Coorah Creek and has been a source of comfort ever since. But Scott no longer calls the town home – it’s too full of bad memories and he doesn’t plan on sticking around for long.
Scott needs to leave. Katie needs to stay. They have until Christmas to decide their future …
Of course, the cover designer at my publisher Choc Lit is used to putting snowflakes and robins and people wearing woolly hats and scarves on her Christmas covers – so this was a challenge for her. I think she did a great job.
This is the third book I have set in Coorah Creek – and the covers look really fabulous together.
The good news is – it’s not the last Coorah Creek book. You’ll get to take another trip to The Creek early next year… but you have to wait a while for more news about that. In the meantime, if you fancy spending Christmas at Coorah Creek – you can get your ticket here.
