From bestselling author Nicole Hurley-Moore, Hartley’s Grange is an inspirational story about a woman pursuing her dreams and taking charge of her future.
Nicole dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
Hartley’s Grange is the result of what happens when a secondary character becomes far too appealing and memorable and demands their own story. Flynn Hartley first appeared in McKellan’s Run as Mac’s best friend and I just couldn’t get him out of my head. Hartley’s Grange is set in the fictional town of Violet Falls in Central Victoria and centres around Flynn as he attempts to win over the heart of Lily Beckett. Up until now, Flynn has been known as a player. He’s never allowed his emotions to get tangled up with anyone else’s. But when Lily Beckett arrives back in town he finds himself in danger of falling in love for the first time.
