Pamela Cook - Australian Fiction with a Country Heart

Hi and thank you for visiting.

I’m a city girl with a country lifestyle – and too many horses! My rural fiction novels feature feisty women, tangled family relationships and a healthy dose of romance. My first novel, Blackwattle Lake, was published in 2012 after being selected for the Queensland Writer’s Centre/Hachette Manuscript Development Program. Essie’s Way, my second book, was published in 2013 and Close To Home was released in July 2015. The Crossroads is my latest novel, released November 29, 2016.

My Top Five Spring Reads

So many books and so little time! A cliché but definitely the apt for me right now. With an ever growing book pile and dividing my time between writing, Writes4Women and Storyfest, not to mention family time and horse riding, I hardly seem to be making a dent in my TBR tower. I have managed to sneak some time for reading though, and here are my recommendations for Spring reading, in no particular order. And if you click on the links on the bottom of the post you’ll find more reviews from my writing buddies, The Writers’ Dozen. There’s something for everyone!   Lost Without You – Rachael Johns I was lucky enough to read Rachael’s latest novel prior to its release and after just a few pages became totally immersed. The storyline centres around a wedding dress that connects the main characters, Rebecca, Paige, Josie and Clara. Covering a range of family and social issues, the plot unravels the knots binding these characters together and delves into both the positive and negative aspects of the choices they make.

I thoroughly enjoyed Lost Without You, a great addition to Rachael’s collection of contemporary women’s fiction.   The Single Ladies Of the Jacaranda Retirement Village – Joanna Nell This title of this book pretty much sums up the story: single women dealing with the ups and downs of life in their twilight years. It centers around the two lead characters Pat and Angie, who are... read more
