'Falling for the Farmer' by Narelle Atkins
KATE LAWSON IS A RUNAWAY BRIDE
And she's incredibly grateful when Jack Bradley offers her a job on his apple farm. Working side by side in the orchards with her best friend's brother seems like the perfect way to get over her disastrous engagement. Until Kate finds herself falling hard for the handsome farmer.
Jack Bradley knows city-girl Kate isn't here to stay. Yet suddenly he's imagining a life with her in the country. When Kate considers going back to the city, can Jack find a way to show her that her real home is here on the farm, by his side?
We're thrown thick into the action of this story from the start. Kate Lawson is a runaway bride who dashes out of church and orders Jack Bradley, the driver of the bridal car, to take her far away.
Jack is the brother of Kate's best friend and she ends up working on his farm for a time, while she tries to figure out what to do. Kate's relationship with her mother, already strained, now seems irreparable. Although Jack is willing to help, there are rumours that he is nursing a broken heart of his own. A long-term relationship with his sweetheart, Amy, ended when she married another man. So he can't help being wary of Kate. How long can such a cosmopolitan type of girl want to spend on his farm? And why did she find herself in the position of having to flee her own wedding anyway? He can't bring himself to condone that.
As the readers know Kate to be level-headed with good reasons for everything she does, we're curious to find out why she objected to marriage to the wealthy Rodney.
A lighthearted story which is easy to read.
