A Bindarra Creek Romance ~ Stolen Sanctuary

ef73bc39-f9f7-4cd3-a905-32bfa2067a52A spin off of Stacey Nash’s enthralling Oxley College Saga set in the rural country town of Bindarra Creek.

The one thing that keeps Oxley College’s Molly McLean calm amidst midterm exams and keg parties is knowing she’s got a quiet place to land in her hometown of Bindarra Creek. But even from college, Molly’s heard rumours about her small country hometown’s big city makeover. She knows reviving tiny Bindarra Creek will draw in more tourists—so while home for the summer, she sets out to convince her conservative parents to spruce up their motel in order to cash in on the influx of new business that will surely come.

However, Molly never thought the town’s makeover would have a negative impact on her little slice of home until she returns to the stables were she’s worked every summer since she was thirteen. Sexy city boy Callan Hunter is turning the tranquil property she loves into another churn-people-through tourist spot. Butting heads with the business-minded hottie is the last way Molly thought she’d be spending her holidays, but there’s no way she can stand around and allow the stables her grandad hand-built to be torn down. If she can’t convince Callan to ease up on the bulldozing, Bindarra Creek will no longer be a sanctuary. It’ll be a concrete jungle.

His sexy arrogance might have everyone else ensnared, but Molly’s already been there, done that. Now she’s immune. Or is she?

Is home really where the heart is?

home-to-bindarra-creek-v3Home to Bindarra Creek is book six in our Bindarra Creek series.

When fate brings together two lost souls, it’s time to leave the shadows behind and come home to Bindarra Creek.

With rejuvenation of her small home town in the pipeline, Park Ranger, Alice Pritchard has no choice but to let go of the past. Dan Molyneaux roars into her life in his high-powered V8 and reopens the Riverside Pub, forcing her to face her ghosts, his possum problem, Curly the cockatoo who swears like a sailor, Old Man Jake who’s appointed himself caretaker of the property, and Grandad Charlie who’s determined to find her the man he thinks she deserves.

Alice would love to ignore them all and keep living in the cocoon she’s created for herself in sleepy Bindarra Creek, but fate has other plans for her.

Dan isn’t looking for love or the friendship of the two crazy old men who appear to have adopted him. All he wanted was the peace and quiet of the country, away from the city highways. Soon he’s swept along by renovations, fundraisers, hell-raisers and the problems of a small town coming back to life. But it’s the park ranger he’s curious about. Why would a girl as beautiful as Alice bury herself in a backwater town so far off the main highway, it was merely a blip on the satellite map? What he uncovers raises some of his own ghosts from the dead.

I cannot recommend enough what a fantastic small town series Bindarra Creek is for that feel good experience.
The CEO Mechanic is book four in this series and introduces the Fairfax’s rebellious daughter Brooke and Mac Stafford a man who is trying to reconcile himself with the death of his younger brother.
These two have an instant connection that surprises them both. Put secrets threaten to pull them apart and Mac has to prove to Brooke that he is the man for her.
I really enjoyed meeting some new characters in this story especially Brooke’s young brother Davey, what a cute child, he made my heart melt.
We also get to meet some of the previous characters. I think this is the appeal to this series, you get a real feel for the town and its residents

The CEO Mechanic gives a different slant of the stories so far. This one has secrets the hero is holding back for the heroine with repercussion that could go either way depending on how forgiven our heroine is to the secret.
Another enjoyable read that makes you want to read more in the series.

A big thanks to both of these reviewers.

5 Star Review for The CEO Mechanic


51oYDipVhSL__SL160_SL150_I received a 5 star review from Lilly Roger’s for The CEO Mechanic.
I loved this story. Mac and Brooke were so believable in their roles as hero and heroine. Brooke’s little brother Davey steals the show in the scene he takes part. There are many amusing characters through out the book and a couple not so nice which they get their just desserts.
With each turn of the page you want to see these two get together no matter what is thrown at them.
This is the fourth book in this Bindarra Creek series. The thing I like about them is you can read them out of sequence and the series still works well. A great feel good story.
I can’t wait to read the rest of the series
