They’re saving lives in the outback, can love save them…?
Pilot Jess Pearson is running away from a broken heart and a terrible burden of guilt. A new job flying an air ambulance in outback Australia is a lifeline, after the headlines claimed she betrayed her lover to escape a prison sentence. That was all lies, and in Coorah Creek she has a chance to start over. She’s not hoping for forgiveness or love, just to escape from the past. But no matter how many people she helps save, can she ever atone for a lost life?
Dr Adam Gilmore is a brilliant doctor who wants only two things-to work and to be left alone. Unwilling to let any woman past his well-built barriers, he gives everything of himself to his patients. But when the new pilot comes to his small town, with a dedication to the job that matches his own, he starts to wonder if maybe he doesn’t have to shoulder the burden alone …
Can these battered souls learn to take strength from each other? Or will their desire to deal with their demons alone keep them apart forever?
Flight to Coorah Creek was the winner of the Aspen Gold Readers’ Choice Award, given by the Heart of Denver chapter of the Romance Writers of America.
It was also a finalist in the Romantic Book of the Year Awards (RUBY) presented by the Romance Writers of Australia and nominated as Book of the Year in the AusRomToday Reader’s Choice Awards.
I love this book – the first in the award winning Coorah Creek series. It’s been out of print for a while, but it’s great to have it back out there, with a shiny new cover.
While on holiday in the Northern territory many years ago, I was rushed to hospital by the Flying Doctor Service. This is in part my tribute to them for all the wonderful work they do.
It’s also for anyone who ever watched The Flying Doctors on TV – and loved it as much as I did.

“The story itself was totally absorbing, it’s packed full of adventure and as a bonus you get not just one, but two, romances. I was hooked right from the very first page, and found it very hard to put down.” Book – Love – Bug
“This is a beautifully written story which uses the splendour of the Australian outback as a rich canvas and allows the romance between the four main characters to develop at a gentle pace. There is drama, love, tenderness and hopefulness, all of which combine to form a story which lingers long after the last page is read.” Romantic Fiction Online
