Release day: Diamond in the Dust

23 October 2019

Today is the official release of Diamond in the Dust by Mel A Rowe (ebook, self-published). Here’s the blurb:

Is love worth stealing home for?

Drowning in a dusty landscape of broken dreams, a damaged world champion softballer searches for a lost family connection. So crossing paths with the cheeky but charming caretaker, Alex, isn’t what Verily expects to find on her Aunt’s outback farm.

Alex is torn between selling his soul to join the family business or daring to dream of a bigger future. With Verily holidaying at the farmhouse, she’s a curveball he’d love to catch—but she’s also a risk to his heart and homelife he’d rather avoid.

Finding himself in a jam, Alex herds Verily into a wild scheme that could propel his dreams into fruition. Until a feud between old friends threatens to derail everything.

With her return tickets booked, can Alex convince Verily to stay or will they find themselves on opposite sides of the globe forever?

From dusty cattle stations to flourishing mango orchards, welcome to the Elsie Creek series, set in a place where the summer never ends.

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

A reader recently emailed me after having read Diamond in the Dust, telling me she’d never realised how exotic Australia was. The unusual animals, besides kangaroos and koalas, and the fruits intrigued her. Most of all, she adored the simplest of slang-terms such as the word for chooks! Interpreting the local lingo, used in the Elsie Creek series, has been a fabulous conversation starter between me and the readers. It’s one of the many blessings I’ve received since releasing these stories. Enjoyed as a standalone to this series, Diamond in the Dust is about family, friends, finding love … and jam! So, download the ebook to sit back and discover another layer to this unique outback town of Elsie Creek; it’ll be an adventure I’m sure you’ll love. Oh, and if you don’t understand any of the local lingo, ask me. I’ll be more than happy to explain.

You can find out more about this book at Mel’s website or buy it from books2read.
