Publisher's Summary

A pitch-perfect rural romance of changing relationships and family ties from the best-selling author of Wildflower Ridge.

Between managing a bustling beauty salon, hectic volunteer commitments and the lion's share of parenting two-year-old Claudia, Angie McIntyre barely has time to turn around. And with each passing month, she feels her relationship with fly-in, fly-out boyfriend Rob Jones slipping through her fingers.

When Rob faces retrenchment and the most fabulous fixer-upper comes onto the market, Angie knows this derelict weatherboard cottage will be the perfect project to draw their little family together.

There's just one catch: the 200-acre property is right next door to Rob's parents in Southwest Victoria.

It doesn't take long for rising tensions to set a wedge between the hard-working couple. Angie and Rob have to find out the hard way whether their grand design will draw them closer together or be the very thing that tears them apart.

A beautiful book

I really enjoyed Bottlebrush Creek, the second of Maya Linnell’s books. I particularly loved the depth of development of the characters and reality of the relationships and storyline in this book.
Well worth listening to this beautiful book by an up and coming young Australian author. Looking forward to reading more of Maya’s stories

I felt as if I were there too

loved it!! I felt like this book really captured more imagery (if that makes sense) of the places that they took you to in the book and I could picture myself there and I loved that. I loved the story it took me twists and turns. some I thought I saw coming but went a different way. even better than Wildflower Ridge and I adored that one.

Great characters.

I absolutely love the narrator. I think she does a fabulous job!!
