Alexandra Findlay, an Australian Travel Company Tour Director (who is firmly 'in the closet') is directed by her boss to play special host to Lee Paynter, an 'out' lesbian who heads up a U.S. travel company. Alex works alongside Steve Monahan, a moronic homophobe who is competing with her for a promotion. Inbetween batting off stupid remarks from Steve, Alex commences to accompany Lee on various 'outback' tours and becomes completely infatuated but exasperated with the brash American. Claire McNab has written several books about Carol Ashton - Detective but this book is a great romantic read and the descriptions of the Queensland coast certainly make you want to go. I originally read this book a few years ago but have just returned from a trip to Cairns in Australia so decided to re-read. Still enjoyable and the sparring between Alex and Lee are dead right! Enjoy.
Beautifully told story, so good I've read it twice. It's a simple love story, it's romantic and it's sexy and it has a happy ending. A simple classic formula that only works when it's told as well as this.
