Goodreads Book Review: Wedding Bells by the Creek by Janet Gover

Wedding Bells By The Creek: A Coorah Creek NovellaWedding Bells By The Creek: A Coorah Creek Novella by Janet Gover

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love the Coorah Creek series (nearly all of them have made me cry – in a ‘good book cry’ kind of way) so, when I heard there was going to be a new novella – with a wedding in it, no less, I asked the author if I could have a review copy.

In this book we meet up with Ed Collins again (grumpy old bugger from Coorah Creek Christmas) who is a significantly happier man now that he’s reunited with his estranged son. We also meet Helen (mum to Tia from Little Girl Lost) who is searching for reconciliation. If anyone can understand just how hard it is to heal old rifts, it’s Ed.

I liked that Helen and Ed are a little older. I also liked the connections with the town. I feel like it’s a real place.
Oh, and did I mention the puppies? There are puppies.

The ending was lovely, but it was bittersweet because it felt like the end of the series.

Usual disclaimer- Janet and I write for the same publisher. I asked for a free copy so that I could read it early. This is an honest review.

Goodreads Book Review: Little Girl Lost by Janet Gover

Little Girl Lost (Choc Lit) (Coorah Creek Book 4)Little Girl Lost (Choc Lit) by Janet Gover
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a lovely book. Janet Gover does it again.
I really love the Coorah Creek books – it feels like a real place now. I enjoyed Tia and Max’s story a lot. I think I enjoyed Sarah and Pete’s story even more. I think Pete is just adorable.

A little girl goes missing in the bush and a whole town turns out to find her. It’s a lovely story about community spirit and about forgiving yourself. The bit about the little girl made me cry.

I got a free copy of this book off Netgalley, in return for an honest review. I write for the same publisher as Janet Gover, but that doesn’t mean I can’t be a fan of her books as well.
