Muster in the Dust (Elsie Creek Series Book 5)


She’s rodeo royalty. He’s nothing but a drifter chasing a dream. So how much trouble can a fake date create in a town overrun with cowboys?

Daughter of a wealthy cattle station owner, Mandy is the wallflower who prefers to take care of her family, her herd and horses. But when her father hires someone else to manage the station she was born to run, Mandy makes a plan to retaliate…

Rigsy only came into town to find a date for a friend—not get roped into fake dating one of the famous Muster Sisters! Pretending to be in a relationship with the sweet-smiling stockwoman to help achieve his goals, seems simple enough. Yet with Mandy’s father gunning for Rigsy to leave town, her scheme may be the only thing that can keep his hopes alive.

But when the couple’s unexpected passions collide with their ambitions, they become rivals in the race for their individual dreams that could cost them everything—including each other!

Settle into the saddle for this charming, heartfelt story of love, family, and friendship, found in the most remote corner of the outback in this edition of the international bestselling small town series of Elsie Creek.

Are you ready to Escape to a HAPPILY EVER AFTER?

For a little while, immersed in the story, I am transported to another world – a world where dreams can come true for worthy sorts.Brilliantly crafted, set in the Northern Territory outback, this story is about real people with all their quirks and foibles. Another awesome read from Mel A Rowe ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    This tale revolves around Mandy, the daughter of one of the local influential graziers who owns Avallon Downs, and Rigsy who many seem to be a no hoper/drifter.Mandy is vying for the position of Head Stockman on the property however she is met with many obstacles from within her family & a lot of the locals especially the working men. That’s when Rigsy comes into it & their faux relationship which eventually leads to more.The narration is descriptive making you feel like you’re part of the story & I really didn’t want to put this down. It does truly depict the harshness & romance of the Australian Outback & the often quirky characters that inhabit it.If you’ve read the previous stories in this series this will not disappoint.I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
