Book Review - Rosalee Station by Mandy Magro

 I love these country love story type books!!!
This was one was ok.
The story was great, a little too predictable though.

The thing that annoyed me most
was the language that the Author used.
She tried to put every Aussie Slang Colloquialism
into this one tiny book
and honestly, outback station people don't really talk like this.
I know that the Author does live herself in Tropical NQ on a fruit farm,
but i would question that this talk is authentic.
Yes they use lots of lingo and things, but not with every word that comes out of their mouths!
It was just too much and made it really hard to read
and even harder to believe!!!
But the characters in the book are endearing and I really did want to see what happened to them.
This is just my personal view, others might really enjoy the language with which this was written.

The Book Reads:
"Sarah Clarke's dream is the experience life in the real outback.  When her boyfriend Brad offers her a job with him on Rosalee Station, she cant believe her luck, But within days or arriving, her relationship is in tatters and the dream is fast losing its luster.
Sarah stays on to prove herself in the unforgiving land, earning the admiration of Matt, the station owners son. Beneath the wide outback skies, the pair are irresistibly drawn to each other until a stolen kiss leads to disaster. Sarah leaves Rosalee, convinced she'll never see Matt again - but fate has a way of intervening....

Also there is way too much lead up to the story and then the middle of the story is long winded and going no where, and then the finish is way too fast and unreasonable...

As i have said though, I did enjoy it. But there are just a few too many little annoying things in there for my liking.

Hey Jodi. I have been stalking your blog and decided that I really should start commenting here and there so it is not officially 'stalking' anymore....hehe
Have you read the Judy Nunn books (yep, she was Ailsa in Home and Away but don't hold that against her as she is a great author)? They are really good. I think you would enjoy them.
