Release day: The Falls
Today is the official release of The Falls by Cathryn Hein (paperback and ebook, Penguin Australia). Here’s the blurb:
For as long as she can remember, Teagan Bliss has wanted to manage her family’s property. She’s invested everything in the farm, knowing that when her parents retire she’ll be ready to take the reins. But when a family betrayal leaves her reeling, Teagan is forced to rethink her entire future.
Heartbroken, Teagan flees to her aunt’s property in the idyllic Falls Valley. Vanessa is warm and welcoming and a favourite of the locals who drop in regularly for cocktail hour. Teagan soon catches the attention of sexy local farrier Lucas Knight, and with a new job, new friends and the prospect of a new relationship, she slowly begins to open up again.
But the village is a hotbed of gossip and division and when Teagan gets caught up in town politics, Lucas and Vanessa become concerned. As the tension in town escalates, Teagan must decide who to trust. But when she realises those close to her have been keeping secrets, the fallout may split Teagan apart forever.
The Falls is an uplifting story of healing and hope from the author of Promises, Heart of the Valley, Heartland and Rocking Horse Hill.
Cathryn dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
As well as being a wonderful romance set against some gorgeous NSW countryside, The Falls also covers pretty serious topics, including family breakdown and depression. With the heartbreak Teagan and her family have endured, a journey toward happy-ever-after was never going to be easy. To temper that I felt it was important that readers enjoy a few laughs along the way. Enter Teagan’s glamorous, if slightly eccentric, Aunt Vanessa, a bunch of quirky villagers, a struggling cricket club, and a ram hell-bent on farm domination. Oh, and to complement the main romance between Teagan and Lucas, there are two more side romances to enjoy. Three for the price of one! The Falls is an emotional rollercoaster of a story, with plenty of romance, serious family drama, a heart-thumping climax, and lots of laughs. I hope readers have as much fun with it as I did.
