All of that said, it's the ending of the story that really sold me -- and which I can't share with you because of spoilers. A believable, enveloping, yet real ending. Loved it.
*I'm another Escape Publishing author, I've met Jennie (who is a sweetie) and we're both members of the Romance Writers of Australia. So that's full disclosure. And I really did enjoy "The House on Burra Burra Lane".
Jennie Jones does a great job of encapsulating the joys, the triumphs and the tribulations of small, rural town life, where everyone knows everyone else... she creates memorable characters from Ruby the pet pig, to Ethan, the hunky vet with a shadowed past who moonlights as a carpenter in his spare time, and Sammy, the new girl in town, and all the townsfolk who run a bet on how long this city girl will hack the slow pace of Swallow Falls. This book is so full of detail that by the end you feel you've vicariously lived these people's lives, quirky humour, pride, faults and all.
In my opinion this book would comfortably sit on the bookshelves alongside and compares very favourably with great authors like Debbie Macomber, Sharon Sala, Nora Roberts and Susan Mallery. Jennie Jones has a real gift, she brings rural town Australia, with all its quirks and foibles, into vivid life.
This is one book that I will go back and read again so I can savour the detail and colourful array of characters all over again...from Ruby, the pet pig, to the wise and far seeing Grandy, the patriarch of Swallow Falls.
My favourite quote... " though why they call him junior has me beat, he must be at least sixty years old." To me this sums up the flavour of this book, and I look forward to reading more books by this author.
There is lots of detail in this book, which appeals to me. I like detail in characters, in scenes and in emotions - I like to be drawn into the books I read - and so for me, The House on Burra Burra Lane was spot on.
As it is part of a trilogy am now into the second book and it is just as good as the first. Great read.
Sammy and Ethan are just the tip of the iceberg in a town filled with interesting characters, the ones you find in any country town, county or village.
Our couple have their fair share of obstacles, both past and present.
So many layers to this story that make it intriguing, funny and heart warming.
To me, the house itself becomes a character all of it's own. I loved this book and look forward to the next one from Ms Jennie Jones :)
