Cora Cabot’s life is falling apart. So when her Australian friend announces she’s secured an internship in the States, Cora has a brilliant idea: house swap! Small-town Australia sounds like the perfect getaway. Only, when she gets there, the house isn’t empty. Turns out her friend’s hot Australian brother is staying there, too—and he doesn’t look happy to see her.
The last thing Trent Walters needs is a roommate for the summer. Especially an American who immediately floods the house and single-handedly destroys the family project his sister created for their parents’ anniversary. Now, not only does Cora insist on helping fix the house, he needs her help re-creating the family scrapbook. And glitter is not his forte.
But between late nights cooking, pints at the local pub, and competitive matches of cricket on the beach, Cora starts to break through Trent’s defenses. Too bad Cora made a promise to return to working with her father at the end of the summer—a promise she can’t break—because this holiday is starting to feel like one she never wants to end.
NICUnurse’s Review of Her Aussie Holiday by Stefanie London
Her Aussie Holiday is book two of Stefanie London’s Patterson’s Bluff series. Both books can be read as stand-alone titles. I haven’t read book one (yet!) and never felt lost or out of tune with the story. But as always as a series fanatic, I recommend starting from book one if you have the time. The Aussie Next Door (book one) is now on my TBR!
What I liked about the book: It just seemed to flow really well, and was mostly a slow build. I’m not a huge fan of instalove, so this story really held my interest. There’s a difference between instalove and instant attraction and chemistry. The h&h definitely had the latter! And while the book has many lighthearted moments, there was also a good bit of emotional angst when it came to the h&h’s family dynamics.
NICUnurse’s rating: I love flawed characters. Cora and Trent certainly fit that bill which made me enjoy their story all the more. And Cora’s clumsiness certainly gave root to some hilarious scenes. But what made me fall in love with the story was Trent’s support and gentle prodding to push Cora out of her shell. His belief in her was the catalyst needed for her to find out who she was at her core do what needed to be done to grow and heal. For fans of sweet and sexy stories with a slow build, you’re going to enjoy your time in this small Australian town and look forward to returning in the next book!
I give Her Aussie Holiday by Stefanie London 4.5 out of 5 propellers!
