It’s September 25 which mean exactly 3 months OR also exactly 13 weeks until Christmas! It feels like the perfect time to share a review of my latest Christmas read, Christmas at Coorah Creek by Janet Gover.
What is Janet Gover’s Christmas at Coorah Creek about?
English nurse Katie Brooks is here to stay after travelling halfway around the world to outback Queensland. But she hadn’t anticipated being rescued on day one by Scott Collins: Coorah Creek’s prodigal son … who is determined to leave town as soon as possible. Can a small-town Christmas change their minds?
My review of Christmas at Coorah Creek by Janet Gover
This is a short story set in a remote Aussie town at Christmas time, and I believe it’s a rerelease as part of this year’s Christmassy rural romance collection, Beneath a Christmas Sky (from Harper Collins/Harlequin). I really thought this was a sweet read. Being a short story there isn’t a lot of time to get to know the characters, but I still felt invested in their stories. The setting, both in terms of the actual physical town and the people we meet from the community, felt really well developed, and I was unsurprised to see that Katie and Scott’s story isn’t the first time that Gover has written about Coorah Creek – her earlier novel Flight to Coorah Creek is also set there, as well as several others she has written, which is excellent news, as I’d love to spend some more time there!
Overall this one was really enjoyable and I’d recommend to anyone looking for a short, sweet, festive read with lots of heart.
