Release day: Bottlebrush Creek

2 June 2020

Today is the official release of Bottlebrush Creek by Maya Linnell (ebook, paperback and audio, Allen & Unwin). Here’s the blurb:

Between managing a bustling beauty salon, hectic volunteer commitments and the lion’s share of parenting two-year-old Claudia, Angie McIntyre barely has time to turn around. And with each passing month, she feels her relationship with fly-in, fly-out boyfriend Rob Jones slipping through her fingers.

When Rob faces retrenchment, and the most fabulous fixer-upper comes onto the market, Angie knows this derelict weatherboard cottage will be the perfect project to draw their little family together.

There’s just one catch: the 200-acre property is right next door to Rob’s parents in south-west Victoria. It doesn’t take long for rising tensions to set a wedge between the hard-working couple. Angie and Rob have to find out the hard way whether their grand design will draw them closer together or be the very thing that tears them apart.

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

Bottlebrush Creek is a story that’s close to my heart. As a recovering owner–builder myself, I know what it’s like to take on an epic challenge with the man you love. Let me tell you, it’s not all beer and skittles, especially with young children and farm animals in the mix! My husband and I built our own house—bricks and all—several years ago, and there’s nothing better than sitting in my office, my chair rolling around on floorboards I helped lay, looking out at the cattle and the wallabies in the paddock, and living my dream of being an author. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I loved writing it!

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