Release day: The Round Yard

21 January 2019

Today is the official release of The Round Yard by Alissa Callen (ebook and print, HarperCollins). Here’s the blurb:

For only child Neve Fitzpatrick, family is everything. When she loses her mother, she heads to the bush to rent a farmhouse near her grandmother’s family home. To keep herself busy, she offers to look after two little redheaded cowgirls and adopts a sassy pony and sweet donkey in need of a refuge.

Drover and horse trainer Tanner Callahan may have just found his mother, but he’s resolved never to let anyone too close. Abandonment has cursed him all his life, and he won’t let it happen again. Only two things unnerve him: children and small–town matchmaking. Then he meets occupational therapist Neve. Warm–hearted and unforgettable, she represents all that Tanner feels will forever remain out of reach.

But when an old iron key unlocks family secrets from the Second World War, Neve needs help only Tanner can give. As the threads of the past unravel, and locusts threaten to suffocate the land, Neve and Tanner must make a choice. Will fear keep them running or is the home each yearns for already within their grasp?

Alissa dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

I am so excited my fourth small town Woodlea story is out today. This is Tanner’s story and was such fun to write. Redheaded Neve is a sweetheart and perfect for the wary and reserved Tanner. The Round Yard is a standalone, but it is set in the same town of windmills that features in The Long Paddock, The Red Dirt Road and The Purple Hills (free ebook novella also available now). Edna, the town matchmaker, as well as Reggie, the carrot-obsessed bull, again make an appearance along with some new faces and animals with plenty of personality. I’m currently writing Ella’s story The Boundary Fence, which will be out February 2020.

You can find out more about this book at Alissa’s website or buy it from HarperCollins.
