The end was very rushed as well, as if she was running out of time I hope lessons learned in the first book show up in the next one in the series Her Australian Hero is the first book of Margaret Way s new Australian s series It was a great story There was a lot of mental angst between some of the characters The main characters in this book are Alexandra Ross, a caring, and loving woman, who works hard to keep her family afloat She has lost her mother, and her brother who was 14 when he died and he was her big brother, they were so close, and she never recovered from it Neither did her mother, who died a few years later from alcoholism and the will to live no longer in her after her son died Her father quit taking are of the plantation they owned, and it was Alex who straightened everything up after he almost lost their property Less than a year after his wife s death, he remarried a selfish conniving woman, who took pleasure in annoying Alex The other main character is Rafe Rutherford who grew This author paints in words the vivid landscape of Australia allowing the reader to feel the heat and humidity, smell the flowers and see the homesteads of the characters Alexandra and Rafe come to terms of their love while she works on the family property and he assists to solve the mystery of her family and past Always enjoy reading this author s books Ebook from Netgalley and publisher with thanks.
Ok the wicked stepmother should not be the one who steals the show She took over the book but in the end Alex and Rafe found what they needed The story was a good one and it could have been expanded upon so that the other character could be as developed as Sasham the greedy stepmother Too much time was spent on the brother Alex lost More time should have been spent on rounding out Rafe and Alex z character Overall it was a good book.
This is 2.
5 stars review round up to 3 starsTo be honest, I am not quite sure how to begin my review of this book There were some good moments, but overall it had a lot of irritating elements that kept me to truly appreciate this story.
Let s begin with what I liked Sasha She is the wicked stepmother and she is the one that stole the show She is a mean gold digger and it is the only character that I liked in this story In fact, it is the sole reason that I cared to finish this book Margaret Way did a wonderful job in portraying that decadent woman Sasha would do all that she can to get her share of the family inheritance I love the part where the main characters were trying to discover Sasha s background, but I was a little disappointed when the secret was finally revealed I wanted drama and surprises.
I was unable to connect to either of the main characters
Wealthy and beautiful Hero and heroine who, because of some tragedy, have a strained relationship, that just suddenly morphs into something romantic and sexual The villain is a caricature of a greedy gold digger who is so unbelievable The heroine is too good and kind to be true, it made me disgusted with her instead of admiring her for these supposed qualities.
The epilogue was unnecessary, just a long description of the couple s wedding By that time, I was thinking who cares Overall just generally an unsatisfactory read.
