Home Among the Palm Trees
Can the timid schoolteacher, the laidback guy-next-door, and two cheeky border collies overcome their painful pasts and form a home together?
Ana Hamilton stood up for herself and sent a man to prison. Now he’s out and she’s on the run. Arriving in the small North Queensland town of Elizadale, Ana finds herself reigniting her lost social life with new friendships, yoga, and dog agility training with her beloved border collie. But with the threat of revenge pursuing her, Ana can’t dare put down roots.
Liam Maguire has it all, a beautiful house and a thriving business. Passionate about Elizadale’s tourism, he’s about to open a café to highlight fresh produce from his family’s banana farm, Shadow Creek. All that’s missing from his life is the right woman … and the intriguing new teacher may be the one he’s been waiting for. But burned by a city girl before, can Liam risk his heart over another blow-in with flighty feet and shadows in her eyes?
Drawn together through a budding friendship and the playful antics of their border collies, Ana and Liam begin to open their hearts. But as danger lurks in the darkness, can Ana risk staying in Elizadale with him when she may need to run again? Or worse, have her life violently cut short and leave Liam bereft?
