Book Broadcast is a post I have created to help ease the load of the books I have for review. It is a great way to spread the word, providing recognition to an author or publisher for sending me a book to review. As my reviewing and blogging duties have stepped up a notch in the last year, I don’t often have the time to complete an in depth review. I hope you can discover some new titles to read through this regular book post.
About Come Rain or Shine:
A wedding and a will, a bushfire and a baby: who said the country was quiet?
Paula knew when she moved to the country that the life would be tough. Nearly a year into her marriage with farmer Dan, and now pregnant, she is proud of her ability to feed shearers, bake a pastie and fix a fence while still running her accountancy business from home. With a wedding to plan, the farm to run and neighbours to help out, life is busy but good.
But there are clouds on the horizon. Dan is increasingly tired and distant. He promised he would always tell her the truth, so why is he being so mysterious about his late father’s will? And why is his abrasive Aunt Rowena suddenly so interested in the sex and due date of Paula’s baby? As bushfires rage, Paula makes a discovery that shocks her and threatens all she holds dear.
South Australian rural romance novelist Tricia Stringer delivers another top notch read with, Come Rain or Shine. Following on from her previous novel, A Chance of Stormy Weather, Come Rain or Shine offers readers a chance to reconnect with the Woodcrofts. The tale that unfolds is not only a realistic day-to-day account of life on the land, but it also includes a wedding, a baby, an unexpected land claim and a nature’s force – a bushfire. Life certainly isn’t mundane at Wood Dell! I always look forward to a new Tricia Stringer novel, she is by far one of my favourite rural romance novelists. I was also keen to read this one even more as I have read and enjoyed its predecessor, A Chance of Stormy Weather. Come Rain or Shine was another delightful read from Tricia Stringer. For a novel first released as a self published edition back in 2008, I’m glad to see Come Rain or Shine re-released in a commercial fiction format. Come Rain or Shine is a rural romance that offers the audience a plentiful reading experience, especially in increasing our understanding of the challenges and persistence that goes into making a living from our outback. Full of love, drama and intrigue, this one shouldn’t be missed.
Come Rain or Shine by Tricia Stringer was published on 23rd October 2017 by Harlequin-Mira Australia. Details on how to purchase the book can be found here.
