The review --
This was a wonderful book, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I snagged this book on a free download back during Christmas 2014, when I was doing my Christmas book reading. But this is a wonderful book for any time of the year. The characters are engaging and wonderful; the story is awesome. The location . . . well, it's Australia, and it's great, really well described. And the book has a wonderful happily ever after ending that you'll just love.
