“Come for the romance and stay for the breathtaking scenery. ”
(5 star review)


I’ve been a bit lost with sharing from my current books so I thought I’d start a new WIP. I hope you all enjoy the story. I’m not sure where it’s heading, so any comments / critique is more than welcomed.

Enjoy ♥

Lexie looked around, but saw nothing but trees. Worry crept into her mind. It’d been a while since they’d seen another soul. The old farmer on the tractor had warned them, but she’d been so sure to know the way back to the car.
“Mum, are you sure you know where you’re going?” Zoe asked.
Loosely circling her shoulders to rid herself of the kink in it, Lexie replied, “Honey, I’m sure we’re almost there. It can’t be far.”
“Such a stupid idea to go for a bushwalk.”
Lexie stopped and turned to look at her daughter, undecided whether to be annoyed or feeling guilty. “I thought it was a great idea. We’re stuck in the small house seven days a week with the walls closing up on us.”
Zoe met her gaze, tears shimmering in her eyes. “Not my fault we moved here.”
Now massaging her temples, she exhaled a long breath. “I hope we’re not going through the separation discussion again. Dad and I drifted apart.”
“Fair enough, but did you have to drift all the way to this forsaken place?”
“This forsaken place is giving me a chance to work in my profession as a lawyer during school hours only so you’re not on your own at home.”
Zoe shrugged. “I miss my friends.”
“Well, honey, so do I, but I am trying to do the best in a bad situation. How about we try to get out of his jungle of trees and next weekend we’ll check the real estate agent for a bigger house?”
“We had a big house in Perth—”

  1. I’m in agreement with the other commenters – very realistic conversation and the mother might as well give up because she’s not going to win this one. Of course i’m worried about them being lost….an effective excerpt!

    1. Thank you, Veronica. I’m stoked it comes across so well. Big compliment coming from you all. THANKS !

  2. Never try to reason with a teenager. They always think they know better. lol Great intro to your characters.,

Don't be shy and leave me a comment ♥
