I have had some brilliant book mail lately, full of amazing soon-to-be released titles that I’ve been looking forward to reading.
One of these is Leonie Kelsall’s second book The Wattle Seed Inn. I loved Leonie’s debut last year, The Farm at Peppertree Crossing (you can see my review here), and have been looking forward to her next book ever since.
I was delighted to find an early copy of The Wattle Seed Inn in the post from the lovey team at Allen & Unwin. I’ll have a review of this one up closer to its release (in July), but in the mean time you can check out the blurb here and add The Wattle Seed Inn to Goodreads here.
PR executive Gabrielle Moreau knows she has an easy life, but when her business partner claims she lacks career passion she takes ownership of a dilapidated pub in a tiny riverside settlement to prove she can be a success without falling back on her privilege.
Eighteen months ago, Settlers Bridge stonemason Hayden Paech had it all: a job he loved, good mates and a close family. All he needed was the right woman to come along and he was ready to settle down. But one poor choice stole that chance and he’ll never risk caring for anyone again.
Living at Wurruldi Hotel for … goodness, so many years, Ilse has seen more changes of ownership than she can recall. Clinging to her failing memories, she’s tired of trying to protect the property her grandparents built. With the arrival of the elegant Gabrielle Moreau, however, it seems that finally an owner may recognise the importance of recapturing the grace and dignity of Ilse’s past.
For Ilse to find peace, Hayden forgiveness and Gabrielle her true passion, three aching hearts must reveal their secrets.
Doesn’t that sound great? Let me know if you’ve got this one on your tbr too
