Still waters run deep in Wongan Creek...
When spray drift ruins his crop and throws his ability to hold on to the family farm into question, Harley Baker wants to confront his neighbour and shout his rage and worry to the sky. But arguments are tricky when the woman whose herbicides killed his crop is also the woman he’s loved his whole life.
Tameka Chalmers knows that her father’s farming methods are outdated, inefficient, and even dangerous, so when Harley charges her with the loss of his livelihood, she can only accept the blame. There’s so much she would like to do differently, but her father’s rule is absolute and if she wants to keep working the farm she loves, she must do as she’s told.
But the simple action of speaking with Harley, the man she wants but can never have, starts an unexpected chain reaction of events that throw everything she’s ever known into question: her past, her family, her life. Dark secrets come to light and when Tameka is injured in a house fire, she and Harley have one small chance to seize a lifetime of happiness, if only they are able to rise from the ashes and claim it.

Book 2 didn’t disappoint me at all & there is no real necessity to have read Book 1. Different theme & current topics approached in this novel. To me the skills of the author to have the reader questioning the main characters’ situations, to try & understand & deal with the relevant issues is a bonus & credit because simply you get so engrossed it’s non stop reading till the end. Another enjoyable read which will make me now look at her other series of 3 books.
