2.0 out of 5 stars patchwork undone, 21 Oct 2013
This review is from: Patchwork Family in the Outback (Mills & Boon Cherish) (Bellaroo Creek! - Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
Read via local elibrary. Read other books by this author which I thoroughly enjoyed. Agree with reviewers uk and usa that story and characters not rounded. I was disappointed. There is a decent story but I wouldnt be enamoured with someone who was very critical as to be insulting one minute, then lovey dovey the next. Didnt gel for me. Also some grammar was off. Weak book in my opinion.

This review is from: Patchwork Family in the Outback (Mills & Boon Cherish) (Bellaroo Creek! - Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
Bellaroo Creek is a small Aussie town needing people so three linked books by different authors show us what happens when newcomers answer an advertisement. Poppy Carter agrees to be the new teacher - she'll be renting a home for a dollar a week. The first parent she meets comments that he doubts she can go a week without needing a hairdresser or beauty salon.

Harrison Black, the nearest rancher, gets persuaded by his kids to help Poppy turn the classroom from an institutional room to a fun environment. His wife couldn't stand the isolation and left several years ago; the experience has made him distrust women's stamina for outback life. Actually, Poppy has sworn off men. Then an emergency obliges her to look after Harrison's son and daughter and she discovers that outback life isn't quite as she'd expected....

The characters are surprisingly few and we're told that an Aboriginal couple work on the ranch but we only meet the wife in an epilogue. This means that the tale never develops a sense of community, perhaps so that the three authors would not contradict one another... then what is the link?

Soraya Lane has written a pleasant light romance which places most emphasis on the growing relationship and could be enjoyed by anyone from teens to adults.
