✿ Snowy Mountains Dawn (Bundilla #4) ✿ Alissa Callen ✿


Release date 31st January 2024 

A diehard country girl. A city-boy newcomer. Some rules were meant to be broken... Opposites attract in this delightful rural romance, set in charming small-town Bundilla, from bestselling Australian author Alissa Callen

Horsewoman Brenna Lancaster has no time for relationships. Unless a man looks good on a horse and lets her call the shots, she isn't interested. She'd rather wear a dress and heels than give someone else power over her life.

Finance guru Wyatt Killian is a self-made man who has left the train wreck of his childhood behind. There is zero room in his workaholic world for downtime and distractions, let alone emotions or country girls.

When Wyatt's corporate horse-riding retreat is led by a woman determined to unplug him from his urban life, it isn't just his laser focus that becomes compromised. Being in a saddle unlocks a part of himself that he'd long ago discarded. In a rare moment of nostalgia, he prolongs his stay in the high country.

After Brenna becomes mired in a family secret that involves a historic feud and bushrangers, she has no choice but to involve Wyatt in the search for answers. But as Wyatt's past collides with his future, and the only home Brenna has known comes under threat, both must decide what they need to let go of and what is worth fighting for.



 ARC received from Harper Collins Australia for an honest review

Going back to Bundilla is like going back to good friends and getting a big bear hug. It may be a while between seeing them, but it warms you heart when you do.

This country mouse meets city mouse story had me wrapped around it's little finger, and once I started I only stopped to sleep.

I have adored Brenna in the earlier books, and I loved her strength, her independence, and her capacity to love those around her.

But she doesn't need love, and Wyatt has her all flustered when he comes to town.

Oh, how I adored this pair, neither of them wants nor needs it, but the attraction between them is just too much to ignore.

And the local busybodies/matchmakers see it too. Oh they hijinx lol

I loved getting more of the couples from the previous books, how all their lives intertwine each book.

And who can forget the best matchmaker of them all, Bundy the Kelpie lol

I really love immersing myself into the world of Bundilla, and I hope we get more in the future.

The bad news? Getting hit by a cab can officially get crossed off my bucket list.

The worse news?
While I’ve woken up from my coma, the man I’m in love with hasn’t stirred from his.

And the most terrible news of all?
A pregnant woman is at his bedside, holding his hand, and saying that he’s the father of her baby.

Sammy Baker is a divorced, single mom trying to find her way again. With two boys and an absent ex-husband, she’s got the world on her shoulders and Legos under her feet.

Amid the chaos lives the dream of, one day, finding love again.

Though, she didn’t think that would land her smack-dab in the middle of two men.

Will Sammy choose the successful businessman who doesn’t hesitate to tell her he’s interested? Or will she go for the eligible bachelor doctor with a constant influx of women vying for his attention?

The smart choice and what the heart wants are two different things. And sometimes, fate has a way of making it so the choice isn’t ours at all.

Cluelessly Yours is interconnected with Accidental Attachment and Best Frenemies but can be read as a complete standalone.

Sammy + ... ?

Sammy is a 41 year old divorced mom with two little boys.
Her sister has been trying to get her to go out with hot doc Noah for months. But now Sammy is waking up in a hospital after some kind of accident? And in the bed next to her is her date? Her boyfriend? Huh? And also weird is that there's a very pregnant woman sitting by his bed holidng his hand? What is happening?
Let's go back in time a month and find out how we got here and where we'll go from here... 



And also so very confusing. You don't know what is what in the prologue. What happened to Sammy? Who is the guy. Didn't we want her to go out with Noah, like her sister wanted? But who is this other guy? And are we getting our happily ever after?? Heheh. Read the book to find out!
But just to take away some of your fears. If you're like me and hate love triangles... don't worry. It's not really that bad. Not at all.

I really loved reading this. Sammy is adorable and her boys are hilarious. Noah is amazing. Sammy's sister is so great. Such a great cast of people!
This was just the most adorable and funny and sparky and sweet rom-com.
I loved it!

Again I'm asking myself: How are none of Max Monroe's books streaming their behinds off on TV yet? The world is a weird and sad place!

CLUELESSLY YOURS was such a sweet + funny + adorable + slightly mysterious rom-com! Run to your nearest book dealer for your own Noah - this one is so mine!
