All My Heart by Rhonda Forrest A new job in a small town. 

She only has to last six months. A short-term teaching position in Tranquil Bay, North Queensland is an exciting option for Tess. Warmer weather, slower pace and a change of scenery are just what she is looking for and will add skills to her resume for moving back to Canberra at the end of the year. A romance with a burly footballer adds spice to her stay, however she soon realises that not everyone can be trusted. Will the complexities of a small town and new school send her home sooner than she anticipated or will she discover a reason to stay? 

The Green Place by Louise Forster Magic can happen anywhere but in this small country town, it’s extra special.

International journalist Grace Taylor has in the past handled many dangerous assignments and is ready for any situation. Joe Mathews has a passion for sustainable farming. How can two such diverse people get on? And why does writing a feature on a reluctant Aussie farmer have her questioning her very future? He wants nothing to do with being a feature in a women’s magazine that his sister arranged, with her parting words, ‘it’s time.’ He and his nine-year-old son have been on their own for two years, and happily so. Is he ready to deal with the reaction they both have when Grace blows into their home and community?

Need something done? Give it to Bridie. She’s so busy looking after the community, her father and their strawberry farm, she fails to care for herself. Now, Caleb must care for his orphaned niece. But Bridie needs a chef for the annual Bastille Day Festival and, unwillingly, he lands the role. But there’s no place to hide in town and soon the locals discover who he really is. Instead of rejecting him, they rally with support and quickly both Bellethorpe and Bridie get under his skin.
