Central to Nowhere – DJ Blackmore

From the Back Cover

central-to-nowhere_large72When Ivy steps over the cattle grid, reality hits. Capricorn Station is vast, desolate and Central to Nowhere. But Ivy has come too far to back out now. She’s left her past behind her and is desperate to make this work.

Stockman Adam O’Rourke is equally determined she’s going home ASAP. This girl is not the jillaroo he was expecting to help on his station over the summer. She can’t even handle a horse.

It isn’t long before Ivy realises there’s more between her and Adam than the job. But Ivy has only one summer on Capricorn Station. One season that’s passing way too fast.

And when Adam’s past blows in unexpectedly, Ivy realises too late that falling for him is bringing back everything she is running from.

My Review

I have to say, I really enjoyed this novel. My love of Australia was treated to a vision of outback Australia with its massive cattle stations, with a romantic story in the middle, and of course a smidgeon of mystery which I love. DJ Blackmore deals with some tough material in this work, such as separation and Elzheimers, but she does it in a tasteful and respectful way. It’s the tough realities of life, but with the hope of a happy ending.

If you, like me, have a love of all things Australian, then you would do well to read this novel. This is the third book of DJ Blackmore’s that I have read, and I am equally impressed by all of them. You can find out more about her and her books here.

About the Author

cc126-deirdreD. J. Blackmore has milked cows and made cheese. She’s bartered house-made Gouda for wine at a boutique vineyard near her home in the Hunter Valley, New South Wales.

She has collected eggs barefoot from the hen-house. A short stint with horses saw her falling off, concussing herself in the process. She broke her best arm. Now she steers clear of animals of the equine persuasion.

Perhaps you will see her mountain-biking through bush tracks, or standing on the sidelines of a Dirt Track Meeting to watch her husband’s need for speed on a motorcycle. If you can’t find her there, she’s probably in the rose garden at home.

Wherever you find her, she will be carrying a laptop and a head full of ideas. The author prefers to stir adrenaline with her pen rather than horsepower.

She’s reared babies and Border Collies. Being the mother of five is her greatest achievement. Writing is a close second.
