Wattle Valley

by Jacquie Underdown

Set in the small town of Wattle Valley, this is a heartwarming story of family, healing and taking big risks for those you love.

Neve is no stranger to heartache. Only six months after nearly losing her mother to a stroke, Neve was in a car accident that left her permanently scarred - emotionally and physically.

But Neve is a survivor, and two years on she splits her time between visiting her mother in the nursing home and working as a make-up artist. After the accident, Neve had to learn to love herself again and now she uses her skills with a make-up brush to teach other women like her how to best work with, and be creative around, facial scarring.

The last thing Neve is looking for is romance - she knows from experience that risking her heart can have dire consequences. When she accidentally walks in on her brother's best friend while he is buck naked, she is forced to reconsider her resolve. Surely a casual relationship wouldn't do any harm?

But there's more to Anders than meets the eye and he has Neve questioning whether she has really moved on after all. With the support of Anders, her family and the Wattle Valley community, will Neve learn to let go of the past and gain the courage to open her heart again before it's too late?
