Review: Rosalee Station by Mandy Magro

After enjoying Mandy Magro's second novel, Jacaranda, I knew that it was only a matter of time before I went back and read her debut novel, Rosalee Station. A little less accomplished than Jacaranda, Rosalee Station tells a love story between an unlikely pair of twenty-somethings against the vividly depicted backdrop of outback Australia. Sarah, who has grown up on a fruit farm in rural Queensland dreams of working in the outback and offered the chance when a cook is required at Rosalee station. Her relationship with her boyfriend soon fizzles and she finds herself attracted to the rich, gorgeous and very unavailable son of the station own, Matt. Matt has relationship troubles of his own but ...

Come on. You don't really want me to tell you how this one ends, do you?

This is an interesting read and paints a picture that is as vivid as it is romantic about life in the outback.
