Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Did you read any of the Outback Brides series? Well this year there’s a new series, Outback Brides Return to Wirralong, and today I’m sharing my review of the third book in this series, Serenity’s Song. Read on to find out more about this heartwarming romance!
Title: Serenity’s Song
Series: Outback Brides Return to Wirralong, Book 3
Author: Cathryn Hein

What a very different third book in this series this proved to be! To start with there are some fantastically appropriate songs mentioned throughout the story, most of which I was shocked to discover I actually recognised, but that isn’t all. It has everything from a hero with a bad boy reputation, an unfortunate and off putting initial encounter, a life threatening cave in, misunderstandings, pesky paparazzi and not one but two weddings!
It is a story of discovering just who you can trust, learning to look behind the facade someone shows to the world, keeping your word and finding love together. It is a brilliant addition to the series, with great characters and plenty of danger and anguish en route to a beautiful, romantic epilogue. I really enjoyed reading it and have no hesitation in highly recommending it, together with the other books in this delightful Australian based series.
Thank you to Tule Publishing for the copy of this book which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
He’s got a history of bad decisions—is he finally about to make the right one?
Jesse Hargraves can’t outrun his notorious bad boy reputation. Betrayed by a woman he trusted, he retreats to his hometown, Wirralong, to serve as his brother’s best man and rebuild his life. But change isn’t easy, and it’s even harder when Jesse has to fight his fierce attraction to the maid of honour—a woman well aware of the darkness in his past.
Beautician Serenity Strachan’s flippant one-liners and vibrant hair colours are armour to protect her fragile heart. She’s always crushed on Jesse, but she’s determined to keep him and his sordid past at an arm’s length. That’s easier said than done when Jesse asks Serenity to help renovate an old property. And when they’re trapped underground in a tunnel cave-in, their emotional barriers fall faster than the tunnel walls.
When rescue arrives, they question their new emotional intimacy. Can Serenity trust this new Jesse with her heart? And can Jesse trust that Serenity will ignore the lure of a fortune to keep his secrets safe?
