Ellie Monroe doesn't make mistakes and her dream job in a gorgeous Australian seaside town isn't the place to start. But when a mischievous chocolate Lab turns her life upside-down, Ellie finds herself meeting handsome veterinarian, Dr Dan O'Brien and wanting to throw caution to the wind for the first time in her life...

Dan has never met a woman quite like Ellie before. The workaholic American is sexy, stubborn, uptight, exasperating - and absolutely fascinating. Australians are famous for their relaxed attitude to life - but can Dan convince Ellie that sometimes you need to make mistakes to open your heart to love?

"Dog lovers young and old will love this rip-roaring, bark-serious adventure... highly recommended" ~ Midwest Book Review

"If you want to get your middle grade reader interested in picking up books, then this is a great place to start." - Net Galley reviewer
 "The author has a great voice with a wonderful sense of humour." - Indie Abode Book Reviews

"I just adored this mystery. Ms. Hanna knows how to hook her readers in, both young and old." - Night Owl Reviews (Top Pick)

"We are loving this book. My 10 year old son who has a short attention span cannot get enough." - Net Galley reviewer

"I've read a few books marketed for middle-grades or younger this year and I have to say that this is hands down the best suited for those ages. It has a great plot, some truly well-rounded characters (with more depth than what I find in most adult novels these days) and a climax that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Not only was this book highly entertaining but there are some great messages in it."- LitChick Hit List

Holly stopped believing in magic long ago... until a chance meeting lands her a dream vacation in Australia. When she rescues a litter of abandoned puppies and meets a handsome Aussie veterinarian who captures her heart, she finds herself tempted to give up everything for a chance at love.

The last thing billionaire vet Dr Nick Forrester expected when helping out at the animal hospital was to meet this pretty American. He knows that they belong together - but with malicious gossip and culture clash coming between them, can he convince Holly that they could have a future together?

The laugh-out-loud true story of a harrowing and hilarious two-year odyssey in the distant South Pacific island nation of Kiribati—possibly The Worst Place on Earth.

At the age of twenty-six, Maarten Troost—who had been pushing the snooze button on the alarm clock of life by racking up useless graduate degrees and muddling through a series of temp jobs—decided to pack up his flip-flops and move to Tarawa, a remote South Pacific island in the Republic of Kiribati. He was restless and lacked direction, and the idea of dropping everything and moving to the ends of the earth was irresistibly romantic. He should have known better.

The Sex Lives of Cannibals tells the hilarious story of what happens when Troost discovers that Tarawa is not the island paradise he dreamed of. Falling into one amusing misadventure after another, Troost struggles through relentless, stifling heat, a variety of deadly bacteria, polluted seas, toxic fish—all in a country where the only music to be heard for miles around is “La Macarena.” He and his stalwart girlfriend Sylvia spend the next two years battling incompetent government officials, alarmingly large critters, erratic electricity, and a paucity of food options (including the Great Beer Crisis); and contending with a bizarre cast of local characters, including “Half-Dead Fred” and the self-proclaimed Poet Laureate of Tarawa (a British drunkard who’s never written a poem in his life).

With The Sex Lives of Cannibals, Maarten Troost has delivered one of the most original, rip-roaringly funny travelogues in years—one that will leave you thankful for staples of American civilization such as coffee, regular showers, and tabloid news, and that will provide the ultimate vicarious adventure.
