Once you choose HOPE anything is possible….

Despite living within cooee of the Great Barrier Reef, idyllic tropical islands, and a well-stocked ocean pantry, author Alicia Hope is a self-confessed landlubber and disliker of seafood (I know - what the heck, right?!). She’s also a keen horse rider, bass player, and bird watcher, and shares her gumtree-dotted acreage home with an author husband, Frank H Jordan, a feathered larrikin, cockatiel Kewbie Kewberton, and a whole bunch of wild birds, roos, goannas, and pretty-face wallabies. Her feel-good stories showcase Alicia’s love of the land and the natural world, and this is especially true of her LONG ROAD series.

Anyone who has travelled Australia by road knows to prepare for looong trips, with a high probability of obstacles and roadblocks being encountered along the way. So it’s no surprise the heroines in Alicia’s stories discover that the road to happiness can also be long, potholed, and downright challenging. But these gutsy Aussie gals are up for whatever challenges come their way!

Book Title
Rural Romance

Engineer Grayson arrives in the outback town for a six week stint of relief work, never expecting to be summoning the Flying Doctors or surviving a cyclone, let alone becoming romantically entangled with a married colleague. And HR officer Maggie never expects that this newbie’s arrival will have her confronting her feelings, and facing up to the obstacles standing in the way of true happiness.

"Highly recommended." - One Stop Fiction reviewer Kathleen Lance
I am not a fan of romance novels with insipid characters who can never manage to talk to one another. This romance is different. The setting is wonderful, the character of Maggie satisfyingly complex, and the conclusion ... very nicely done. [I highly recommend] The Long Road to Loving Grayson for fans of romance, and of light fiction in general.

'A well written book, The Cafe Birds kept me entertained from the opening chapter. I laughed out loud at times and felt my heart being pummelled at others, but all in all this is an excellent read set in Australia.' - Amazon reviewer Margaret Watkins
