Country Roads by Nicole Hurley-Moore
Released: 25th January 2017
Published by: Allen and Unwin
Genre: Romance 
RRP: $29.99 
Pages: 312
A compelling tale of betrayal, tragedy, healing and love that proves first impressions aren’t always right.

Rebecca Duprey is working day and night to keep the family sheep station, Bluestone Ridge, afloat. But Bec's father, who's been in a wheelchair since a farming mishap, keeps second-guessing her decisions. Now, to add Bec's woes, her unfaithful ex-boyfriend has started lurking around, and the adjoining farm she'd hoped to buy has been snapped up by a guy from the city called Matt Harvey.

 After leaving his job in advertising, Matt became a bestselling novelist. But since the death of his fiancée in a car accident, he's had severe writer's block and is desperately hoping his move to the country will help him deal with his grief and allow him to focus on completing his next book. Problem is, he seems to have started off on the wrong foot with his new neighbour, Bec Duprey.

Bec isn't quite sure when she started feeling attracted to Matt, but she's determined not to succumb to his charms. And Matt isn't sure when his feelings changed about Bec; all he knows is he can't get her out of his mind. Can Bec and Matt overcome their fear of loss to find love and happiness with each other...?

If I had to live inside a book…

At first I thought this was an easy question, with only one possible answer; Pride and Prejudice wins hands down. I mean who doesn’t want to be the clever Elizabeth Bennet facing off against the broodingly dashing Mr. Darcy? Jane Austen’s world is full of wit, manners, underlying passion, sprigged muslin and cravats. And as I said, who doesn’t want to immerse themselves in carriage rides, balls and trying to untie those aforementioned cravats. It’s a pretty romantic world which is staid and relatively safe especially for those in the upper echelons of society. I like it here and there is little else to do than to take tea and arrange a marriage or two.  Yes, it will do very well indeed.

But then I begin to realise that this question is more difficult that I first imagined because there’s a part of me which likes things dark, violent and medieval. So I leave the graceful walls of Pemberley and find myself happily ensconced at Winterfell in George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones – swinging a sword, fighting white walkers and trying to tame a direwolf. Winter is my favourite season but as characters appear to die off at an alarming rate perhaps I should think of another option…
