A blissful read!

Love in a Sunburnt Land Anthology is written by five Australian authors. Each story is set in a different Australian country town. I love a good romance novel and this one has five in the one book! Rhonda Forrest, Louise Forster, Leanne Lovegrove, Susan Mackie and Emma Powell each write stories that are unique, engaging and heartwarming.

Love on the Sweeping Plains follows the story of Tori who returns home and reconnects with the local vet, who is the star of a reality TV show to find a wife. It is a fun, feel good, small town romance.

Love in the Ragged Mountain Ranges is about fresh starts and learning to trust again. The Barrington Tops and surrounds are described beautifully. This story is tender and compassionate. It touched my heart.

Far Horizons Love Story had the teacher in me happy to read about Molly, a passionate school teacher. She meets Jack and teaches his son Lachlan. Powell writes about grief from an adult and child's perspective with such care and sensitivity. Readers will experience romance, crime, drama and life altering decisions.

Love by the Jewel Sea is a meaningful, reflective and contemplative novella. Frankie is a self absorbed workaholic who must learn what is important in life. Dingo Beach and its people may just teach Frankie valuable life lessons. This was a blissful read and I felt like I had drifted away into the beautiful Dingo Beach location.

Core of My Heart is a passionate, whirlwind romance between Madeline and Ash. Madeline returns to her hometown to run the bakery she buys from her aunt and uncle.

Each and every story is enjoyable; filled with love, humour, passion, blissful locations, appreciation of the environment, romance, fun, life changing realisations, meaning and much more. I love each novella and I would highly recommend this anthology! What a blissful read.
