Book Description:

Back To Resolution

Bay Anders is lost. She enjoys every privilege a wealthy upbringing affords, but the void in her soul refuses to be filled.
Her mother's dying revelation drives Bay to the brink of self destruction, before a move to Australia changes everything. She embarks upon a search for her father that leads her to his island home, into a hazardous melting pot of hostile locals and a mystery – her father's disappearance.
The only person who can help her is a strong, selfassured and intensely magnetic man. Bay must fight an overwhelming attraction to stay focused on her goal.

Flynn McKenna is hiding from the world. A past filled with mistakes drove him to withdraw from society and live in seclusion. But the arrival of a woman he cannot avoid
shatters his solitary existence. As the search for Bay's father unites them, can he resist his desire for her?
It becomes a race against time as developers try to take over the island.

From the glittering streets of LA, to the beautiful
Daintree forest in North Queensland, to the idyllic island `Resolution', Back to Resolution is a romantic mystery that shows how far a little faith can go.

My Thoughts

  I'm glad this book was chosen to review in December as it's ideal for Christmas holidays. 

The heroine, Bay, can't express what she needs in words but senses that none of her friends can supply it anyway. When she's cut off without a cent by her stepfather, an offer to work as a photographer in Australia's lush, tropical Daintree seems the only option open to her.

An incredible lead to her long-lost father who has almost receded from her memory draws her to an island paradise named Resolution. She meets two extremes of Aussie manhood; the gruff and enigmatic Flynn, who hides more than a painful past behind his thick beard, and the fastidious and un-chivalrous Ashley, who seems ill-equipped for his job as park ranger. Bay has no idea that a world of crime lurks beneath the idyllic setting and that she has what some crooks desperately need.

As summer holiday season is upon us here in Australia, this is the perfect book to tuck away in your luggage to read while sitting by pools drinking pina-colada (if you get the chance). I'd love to be sitting on the sandy shore of Resolution watching the sun set over the horizon.
