Release day: Home Among the Palm Trees

10 May 2022

Today is the official release of Home Among the Palm Trees by Rachel Armstrong (print and ebook, self-published). Here’s the blurb:

Cover image of Home among the Palm Trees by Rachel ArmstrongAna Hamilton stood up for herself and sent a man to prison. Now he’s out and she’s on the run. Arriving in the small North Queensland town of Elizadale, Ana finds herself reigniting her lost social life with new friendships, yoga, and dog agility training with her beloved border collie. But with the threat of revenge pursuing her, Ana can’t dare put down roots.
 
Liam Maguire has it all, a beautiful house and a thriving business. Passionate about Elizadale’s tourism, he’s about to open a café to highlight fresh produce from his family’s banana farm, Shadow Creek. All that’s missing from his life is the right woman … and the intriguing new teacher may be the one he’s been waiting for. But burned by a city girl before, can Liam risk his heart over another blow-in with flighty feet and shadows in her eyes? 
 
Drawn together through a budding friendship and the playful antics of their border collies, Ana and Liam begin to open their hearts. But as danger lurks in the darkness, can Ana risk staying in Elizadale with him when she may need to run again? Or worse, have her life violently cut short and leave Liam bereft? 

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

This is the first book in the Shadow Creek series about the Maguire family, who farm bananas in tropical north Queensland. The small town of Elizadale seems like the perfect place for Ana to find her safe haven and escape the threat that looms in Sydney. What I love most about this book is the small town vibe, intriguing town secrets, and the playful border collies that Ana and Liam bond over. I had a wonderful time creating this town, writing about these characters, and going banana crazy while immortalising my childhood dog in the character of Louis.

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