Publisher's Summary

/She'll make over this town...one man at a time!

Imogen Bates moved to the small rural town of Gibson's Find to start a new life for herself after the death of her husband. Tired of being haunted by the painful memories of her old life, Imogen set her last remaining hopes on the little town and poured her heart and savings into restoring the Majestic Hotel to its former glory. But while the female-starved town might be glad to see a young woman move in, not everyone is happy about Imogen's arrival.

Farmer Gibson Black once dreamed of having the kind of family his grandfather reminisces about, but he's learnt not to dream anymore. Living in the mostly male town suits Gibson down to the ground.... And he won't have anyone - least of all a hot redhead from the city - change a thing.

Imogen has never been one to back down from a challenge - especially when it concerns her last chance at happiness. She's determined to rebuild the pub and create a future for the little town. But can she create a future for Gibson and herself, too?

Great cast of characters.

Man Drought is an entertaining story with a lovely heroine and a swoon worthy hero. Imogen and Drew are attracted to each other right from their first meeting but Imogen is still in mourning for her dead husband (it’s been three years) and Gibson is divorced and is determined not to be burnt a second time. The underlying sexual tension explodes in a passionate encounter in a far from romantic location and both eventually decide that they are better off just being friends. It’s a rocky road to an eventual union for the two main characters and they are backed up by a truely brilliant cast of characters, especially Charlie, Gibson's grandfather. There is a flatness to Casey Withoos's delivery and all the characters, male and female, have the same voice. The chapter breaks feel like they are going to last forever and when she does begin to speak again, she takes a great breath which is clearly audible and becomes very annoying after a while. Still, I have heard much, much worse. A great story that is worth a listen to.
