What Rosie Found Next Review and Giveaway


What Rosie Found Next
Genre: Romantic fiction / Women’s fiction
Release Date: 3rd November 2015

A shaky upbringing has left Rosie Stevens craving safety and security. She thinks she knows exactly what she needs to make her life complete – the stable job and perfect house- sit she’s just found in Magnolia Creek. The only thing she wants now is for her long-term boyfriend, Adam, to leave his overseas job and come home for good. 

Owen Harrison is notoriously nomadic, and he roars into town on his Ducati for one reason and one reason only – to search his parents’ house while they’re away to find out what they’ve been hiding from him his entire life. When he meets Rosie, who refuses to quit the house-sit in his parents’ home, sparks fly. 

Secrets are unearthed, promises are broken, friendships are put to the test and the real risk of bushfires under the hot Australian sun threatens to undo Rosie once and for all.

Will Rosie and Owen find what they want or what they really need?




Two damaged strangers sharing one magnificent house in bushfire country outside of Melbourne, Australia.
Rosie, the contracted house and pet sitter, and Owen, the home owners' nomadic, adult son with no plans to settle surprise each other in the middle of the night.
Each of them has a fractured relationship with their parents, ech of them is hiding deep secrets, but those seem to be the only things they have in common.

Rosie has an absent boyfriend and likes to play strictly by the rules, safety and security are her goals. Owen loves freedom and change. Life is not worth living without some risk.
They seem so different. Can they possibly survive together long enough to become friends?

Has fate actually crossed their paths more than once?
Will each discover what they truly desire?
A good steady pace full of emotional upheaval, the reader can feel the tide turning before the main characters will admit it to themselves.
Most novels I have read try to portray a period dialogue or fit American English protocols.  I really enjoyed the Australian English this was written in.
I even discovered a new favorite word!
I did receive this book in exchange for an honest review
