Release day: Outback Flames
Today is the official release of Outback Flames by Suzanne Brandyn (ebook, self-published). Here’s the blurb:
At thirteen, Zoe Montgomery’s life changed overnight, the night her family and their property, Montagreen, went up in flames. The incident and her previous memories are wiped from her mind. Whisked away moments later by an unknown aunt, Zoe learns to grow up fast and learns the value of hard work.
Fifteen years later, after overhearing her aunt’s whispers about Montagreen, and a girl called Zoe Montgomery, the name on her bracelet, Zoe’s suspicions increase. She flees the only life she has ever known, and escapes her aunt’s harsh lies and abuse, to return home to find answers and rebuild.
However, returning opens not only the devastation she’d left behind, it reveals the torment her childhood sweetheart suffered which almost destroyed his life.
As Jordan works on the restoration of Montagreen, can they battle their way through a mountain of obstacles and take over where they left off, or is it too late?
Suzanne dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
This book was written due to receiving emails from readers wanting similar stories to Heat in the Outback. Although the town and properties are fictitious, I have set the story around one of my old stomping grounds. I feel, smell and taste the Outback whenever I stop and think of my grandmother. Not many people find this type of affinity with the land. I recall inhaling the rain as it brewed over the mountains, counting the seconds until it reached the rusted tin roof where the walls were lined with newspapers, and I’ll never forget the scent of freshly cooked toast over an open fire place. My novels are set in rural/outback places, based around areas I once lived.
