♥ Sugarloaf Ridge Secrets ♥ Jennifer Ryder ♥


A town not as sweet as it sounds...

Daynah Walsh’s ticket to her dream job at Metropolitan magazine has just been handed to her—but before she can move into that corner office, she must take on an assignment in the small town of Sugarloaf Ridge and expose the town’s longest-held secret. What became of the baby that was abandoned on the steps of the bakery almost twenty-five years ago?

Daynah expects easy answers and to gain some editorial experience. What she doesn’t expect is a growing friendship with cattle station manager Finn McAllister and the tight-knit community to welcome her like a member of their family.

The problem is, no one will talk.

Three years ago, Finn McAllister was dumped at the altar. Every waking moment since he’s devoted to the family property, Banridge Station.

When the new contract editor of The Song arrives, she’s like a brilliant ray of sunshine. Daynah awakens his heart as she brings life and hope to the town. Finn’s always been one to fall fast, and before too long, he’s done for.

The problem is, she’s asking too many questions.

Will Daynah break the story? Will Finn and the town finally be the key to healing the scars of her past?

A story about identity, family and love, by Jennifer Ryder.


 ARC received  for an honest review. 
Ms Ryder has done it again with Sugarloaf Ridge Secrets.
As someone who has done the tree change, moving from Sydney to a country town about the same size as Sugarloaf Ridge, I completely get the fish out of water feeling that our lovely Daynah feels when she comes to town.

Daynah and Finn's connection is instant, and you can't help but fall in love with them as their story progresses.
There are so many wonderful characters in this story, and they make this town feel like home -if only me welcome to my now home was as wonderful lol.
Also - where are the hot single farmers in my life? hahah
Oh, and the one thing of all that I could not feel the reality of - there is no way, absolutely no way that a secret like that could be kept for 25 years.  I sneezed out in my front yard one day, and  someone over in the next street/over the back lane yelled back bless you lol.  I know, I know, it is fiction, and I love that this town was so loyal to each other.
Ms Ryder's small town stories are becoming some of my favourites of hers, and I look forward to more in the future.
