A Place of Her Own by Deborah O'Brien

This is another captivating story from this acclaimed author, and I found it relaxing to read after a gruesome crime thriller, although there is an unexpected and worrying scene. The tale, set in delightful Millbrooke, involves Angie, a 50-something widow, who has found a new life. She isn't looking for romance at all, so why does she suddenly start having feelings for good friend, Richard? Who is the woman who arrives in the town to look for him?
There are a lot of twists and turns and misunderstandings in this novel.

I was pleased to see the ghosts of old characters from O'Brien's historical novels still have some life in this novel. For example, Amy and her husband's love story is used in a skilful way. The stor of their son is also told here.

If you are looking for a well-written Australian romance set in the country, I highly recommend this book.
