Actress Edie Granger is in a spot of trouble.

When a big–time producer threatens to ruin her career–and possibly the rest of her life–she flees to her remote hometown in the Snowy Mountains and opens a theatre to put on her comedy whodunnit Who Shot the Producer.

Childhood friend and ex–commando Ryan Munroe has returned to Swallow's Fall to see if there's a future for him and Edie after their disastrous but unforgettable first and only kiss three years ago. She's still dazzling, still in love with her career and still out of his reach. He's about to give up when he learns that Edie might have trouble
on her heels.

Struggling with her growing attraction to Ryan, and torn between her career and a rekindled love for her hometown, Edie focuses on generating her cast and crew from the 182 Swallow's Fall residents and producing her play. But when elements from the play start happening for real, the comedy turns dangerous.

Edie is suddenly centre stage in the biggest role of her life. Can she pull it off ? And can Ryan ensure everyone survives to make it to the curtain call?

About the author

Jennie Jones loved everything with a romantic element from an early age. That’s why she became an actor before she started writing, touring the UK’s grand old theatres, becoming someone else for two hours, eight performances a week, and loving every second.

She's been an Aussie with Welsh roots for over twenty years and wouldn't have it any other way. She's been writing for six years and says she can't imagine writing, like acting, will ever get boring.

Jennie currently lives in a small country town in Perth, Western Australia with Jonesey the boy cat and Zena the warrior girl cat. Plus Churchill the 50 kilo rescue dog, and the occasional sighting of her twenty year old daughter.

A controversial tale of friendship and tragedy during the Great Depression

Over seventy-five years since its first publication, Steinbeck’s tale of commitment, loneliness, hope, and loss remains one of America’s most widely read and taught novels. An unlikely pair, George and Lennie, two migrant workers in California during the Great Depression, grasp for their American Dream. They hustle work when they can, living a hand-to-mouth existence. For George and Lennie have a plan: to own an acre of land and a shack they can call their own. When they land jobs on a ranch in the Salinas Valley, the fulfillment of their dream seems to be within their grasp. But even George cannot guard Lennie from the provocations, nor predict the consequences of Lennie's unswerving obedience to the things George taught him.

Of Mice and Men represents an experiment in form, which Steinbeck described as “a kind of playable novel, written in a novel form but so scened and set that it can be played as it stands.” A rarity in American letters, it achieved remarkable success as a novel, a Broadway play, and three acclaimed films. This edition features an introduction by Susan Shillinglaw, one of today’s leading Steinbeck scholars.

For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines.

Book 1 in The Rangelands series.

A remote outback home where she can become someone new–and maybe find a forever love?

Rachel Meade is a woman with a past she wants to escape from. Finding herself in Mt Maria, a small outback town in Western Australia, she thinks she's found a place to stay.

Before she knows it, Rachel is corralled into helping with the Tidy Town competition by the Dramatic Society widows who have a tendency to gossip and take charge. It's not in her plan, but she finds herself allowing friendships to develop. She's even more surprised by her growing attraction to the town's engaging senior police officer.

Ex–detective Senior Sergeant Luke Weston knows anything and everything happens in the country, and he's seen it all–stolen chickens, pub fights and alleged cheating for the Tidy Town competition are only some of puzzles Mt Maria offers Luke. He's been playing for Rachel, thinking maybe she's the one. Then he gets news that the Crime Squad are looking for her, and he's ordered to get close and stay close. Is Rachel in trouble, or is she the trouble?

Luke is fighting his attraction to a woman he might have to take into custody, and it looks like he's going to be arresting more than one person before the end of the week. Luke needs to restore peace in his corner of the outback, but he knows he's not going to get out of this without getting his heart busted.

With her past catching up with her, Rachel has to decide whether it's time to cut and run again, or whether this time she's found the person–and the place–to finally heal her heart.
