We have long supported the work of nomadic Australian author Jenn J McLeod and the books I haven’t read are on my wishlist to catch up with one day.


A Place to Remember is a multi-generational family drama that packs an emotional punch and torments with a couple of well-timed twists, written across dual timelines.

McLeod is a master storyteller and the way she weaves the timelines of her story to produce a seamless tapestry with all of the burning questions answered and still enough twists to keep you guessing until the end is simply sublime.

Ava Marchette is a self made business woman with an enviable bakery franchise, which at it’s heart is still a family business. She built it from the ground up and headed up the company until a health scare meant she had to take a step back and hand the reins to her son. Early retirement for health reasons is the perfect breeding ground for a fertile imagination and a garden of what ifs, so she heads back to Candlebark Creek where she spent an eventful year as the cook in a country B&B when she was 27. She returns to see what the passage of 30 years has done to the quaint B&B, and the family who own it.

The narrative plays out in dual timelines, often this is an alternating chapters scenario but not with A Place to Remember. McLeod has written parts which flick between the present day and the mid-80s, but there is still some switching at play because otherwise the twists couldn’t possibly be drawn out so deliciously.

Not long after her family discover her health issues a parcel arrives for Ava, an intriguing portrait that raises even more questions and after learning more about her mothers life than she had ever known before Nina races off to Candlebark Creek for some answers of her own.

McLeod has painted an intricate portrait, almost as richly detailed as the work of renowned artist John Tate. She paints the relationships between an impressive cast of characters, both the victims and the villains. There isn’t a lot of time spent on Ava’s family before she moved out of home as a teen and worked her way up the kitchen ladder to become an accomplished chef, but when things got a little hot and she needed escape the small country B&B seemed perfect, until she discovered she’d jumped into a completely new fire and that passion didn’t look like burning out.

A tragic incident sees John Tate lose his short term memory, and any recollection of Ava; pushed aside by his overbearing mother and convinced that she wasn’t the best thing for him Ava leaves, but never forgets. She goes on to live a rich and full life but never replaces John in her heart. Her return to Candlebark Creek is simply to check in and see what life held for John, hoping he had found happiness.

We are treated to the time Ava spent in Candlebark Creek in the 80s, then her return where we have some of the blanks filled in as well as what’s happening with all of the characters in Candlebark Creek in 2015. Next we have some more of 2015 but that’s where Nina comes to the forefront as she determines to fill in the blanks because she is sure there are still things her mother isn’t telling her. It doesn’t help that Nina is feeling a little untethered in her life, nothing excites her the way it once did and she’s feeling a little overshadowed. Her position in the family business is not what she saw herself doing with her life and there is a part of her that wants to find that passion for something.

One of the things that I really loved about McLeod’s characters in this one is the parallels between generations that started to become apparent, and the butterfly effect a lie can have down through generations. There was intrigue right throughout the story with snippets of storyline that are slowly introduced so you don’t get the complete picture until the very end. An ending that was absolutely gorgeous, and kept the last twist for threatening tears to turn into a sigh of utter contentment.

McLeod’s characters are vibrantly detailed and quirkily unique; the bad guys are sometimes the victims and the quiet ones can be the most reprehensible but ultimately sometimes we are all the victim of the cruel hand of fate and we can be molded by the things that happen around us that we have no control over. Speaking of Fate, there was quite a lot of talk of Fate in this one and it all played out beautifully.

A beautiful read by Jenn J McLeod that I am thrilled to have been able to get a hold of for book club. I would recommend unreservedly and I look forward to hearing what our readers have to say.

45 thoughts on “BOOK CLUB: A Place to Remember

  1. A big thank you to Beauty and Lace and Harper Collins Publishers for supplying the book for review ‘A Place to Remember’ by Jen McLeod.

    Well this book would be up there as one of my favourites.

    A book of love and loss, sadness and betrayal, lies, commitment and resilience.

    The author presents such gutsy, solid characters and the story made me laugh, cry, feel anger and relief. From the main characters of Ava Marchette and John Tate and later Nina and Blair, and so many other characters in between made this book the marvel that it is. We were presented with believable scenarios that as a reader you couldn’t help but feel emotionally involved with the characters and the book. I felt a sense of helplessness and anger for the main character’s; fate and circumstance spoiling potential for a long, loving relationship. Their chance of real love taken from them. Thankfully, in the end peace reigns.

    A strong story of country life that I so easily related to. It’s a story of courage, finding real love and perseverance.

    Loved it.

  2. What a beautiful book. My expectations were as high as it gets for Jenn’s new novel, “A Place To Remember” and I wasn’t disappointed. From the glorious, wonderfully Australian cover to the last word, it was sheer magic. A family saga spanning thirty five years, truly Australian, with wonderfully rounded and real characters, never once losing the thread, this will be one of my favourite books forever.

    I was incredibly fortunate to have been introduced to Jenn J. McLeod through Beauty and Lace with her first novel, the wonderful “House For All Seasons” and I loved that, then read the other three “Seasons” books, two courtesy of Beauty and Lace, the other I purchased. I’ve been waiting for the next novel since I finished Jenn’s last one and the wait was worth it.

    Few people weave a complex and reasonably lengthy novel as well as Jenn does. The story flows beautifully, dealing with many things and several characters, with the Australian Outback featuring strongly, flowing beautifully to a wonderfully satisfying conclusion.

    I can’t thank Beauty and Lace enough for originally introducing me to Jenn’s books and now for providing this fabulous book. Thank you, Head of Zeus and Harper Collins for my copy, which I will treasure. Thank you, Jenn J. McLeod for continuing your magic through your writing. The wait was worth it.

    I can’t encourage anyone who loves good writing, from wonderful Australian authors, enough, to read this – I can’t imagine you’ll be disappointed. If you haven’t already read the “Season’s” books you’re in for a treat with those too. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  3. I am a huge fan of Jenn McLeod’s writing and I believe this latest book is her best work. The story spans 30 years and tells the story of Ava who leaves an abusive family home and retreats to a small town in Queensland’s far north region where she is offered the job of cook at a property that runs a B & B. She forms a friendship with her employer’s son who is younger than her and despite her resistance because of their age gap they fall in love. Tragedy strikes and Ava flees, broken hearted and with little more than what she brought with her.

    Thirty years later, Ava has two children and a successful business behind her and her health is not great Her daughter Nina who is in the family business is curious about the man who her mother loved all those years ago and returns to the farm on a fact-finding mission. Little does she know that history is going to repeat itself and she falls for the son of the owner. Nina stays on and discovers that there are many secrets and lies in Candlebark Creek and she has to decide whether to tell her mother what she has found out or let love find its own way.

    This book was fantastic and kept me turning the pages all week. I loved the characters therein and the back stories that they all had which came together so well,- even skipping ahead 10 years at the end, so you knew what had happened to them all gave the reader a sense of closure. This book will appeal to readers of Women’s Fiction or Rural Fiction and Australian stories.

    Thank you so such to Beauty and Lace Books and Head of Zeus for the complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest opinion.

    1. Thank you so much, Janine. That last chapter took some thinking about. I wondered what readers would think about jumping ahead in time, but I thought it was important, so I found a way and crossed my fingers. Thank you for letting me breathe a little. 🙂

  5. Beautiful book by Jenn J McLeod, now a top favourite writer of mine and no wonder she’s a bestseller as she had me at the very first page.
    Gorgeous cover, beautiful story that really captivated me and made me feel and visualise like I was right there at Candlebark Creek with Ava.
    I liked that what I suspected to happen, didn’t and who I thought to blame wasn’t.
    You have to definitely read this one as guaranteed you’ll fall in love with it like Ava did John.
    ‘Grate’ ‘mix’ of characters and loved the funny cooking words put into a sentence and the ‘yeast’ I can do is tell you to read this one 🙂
    Brilliant as read this quicker than others because it was that good and sad to finish it.
    Thanks for the wonderful opportunity to read A Place To Remember as will remember this book for sure.
    One of my favourites this year. Loved it!

  6. I loved McLeod’s previous book, “The Other Side of The Season” and similarly, “A Place To Remember” did not disappoint.

    This was a rich, multi-generational family drama centred around a strong, independent woman named Ava Marchette and a gorgeous homestead called Ivy-May located in the beautiful and rugged surrounds of Candlebark Creek. This book reminded me of some of Natasha Lester’s work because of the differing stories and perspectives.

    I was really gripped by the tragedy and the love story between Ava and the gorgeous, John Tate.
    McLeod has done a fantastic job of weaving together one complex tapestry and lovely human story.

    1. HI Natalie, I may have to quote you on that. The last sentence is just beautiful. And thank you so much for the lovely comparison to Natasha. I also enjoy her storytelling very much.

  7. Wow!! This book was fantastic! I couldn’t put it down. It goes to show that age really doesn’t matter. This book is definitely one of my all time favorites and I’m looking forward to reading Jenn’s other books.

  8. Thank you Beauty and Lace and Harper Collins Australia for the chance to read A Place to Remember by Jen McLeod.

    I won’t go into a synopsis of the story as that has been well covered here but I will say the story of Ava and John engaged me from the beginning and the added strands of the modern day characters added to the beauty of the book. Believable, relatable and so very well drawn, they feel like your friends from the beginning.

    For anyone who has ever lost a love and wondered what to would be like to go revisit 30+ years later…this is the book for you. It made me laugh and cry and engaged me to the very end!

    I recommend A Place to Remember for anyone who loves a great and engaging story – and even better an Australian one!

    Cheers to Jen Mcleod! I will be back!

  9. Wow, this was a long awaited book to read and I was not disappointed in the love story, storyline. I’ve read and followed Jenn’s books since I was lucky enough to receive her first from Beauty and Lace a few years ago now. I love the way Jenn writes and you really feel like you are engaged in the characters and places. They become so real to you as you read. I can visually see the backgrounds and characters as I read.

    467 pages of such a beautiful, engaging story and the cover of the book is truely gorgeous.

    Ava Marchette has been bought up in life by an abusive mother but a lovely, unforgettable dad who sends her away so the abusing stops. She lands a job working as a cook at a property called Ivy May at Candlebark Creek when she is 27 years old. We follow her story and then we jump to 30 years later.

    Here is where you become a part of the characters and actually feel such a huge connection with them all. I couldn’t put the book down but I also didn’t want to finish it either. It’s a storyline that you will fall in love with. There are parts that I felt such anger, adrenalin kicked in during the storm and so many parts I cried and of course there are many happy, emotional moments too.

    It’s not hard for you, yourself the reader to fall in love with John Tate. He is the perfect man in every way. I loved how Jenn followed through the saga of all the characters right through the years. There was no confusion when reading either.

    Ada’s daughter Nina and John’s son Blair are characters that you will also bond with.

    There is a paragraph in the book that really bought me to tears and to Jenn I say, it is such a shame we have to grow up and stop believing stars are magic.

    I also felt happy tears when reading about the little One-eye Dude dog and know that when writing that, Jenn would have shed some happy tears as well.

    This story by Jenn is a memorable, compelling, captivating and powerful storyline and you won’t be disappointed. You will be captivated from start to finish.

    I loved how the book completely finishes the story for you. We are not left wondering with any ifs. I finished the book feeling satisfied.

    Thank you to Beauty and Lace and Head of Zeus for allowing me to read this wonderful book by Jenn.

    Note for Jenn: After finishing this book, I was on my way out to feed my magpies that come to visit and I noticed something flickering on the window inside the house. It was a dragonfly which really touched my heart as it made me think of my own dad. On that note, I am off to grab a tissue.

    1. Oh my gosh, Mandy, send some of those tissue my away now! Your dragonfly made me cry and, yes, I was tearing up knowing you thought about The little dude dog!!!! <3 Thank you for your kind words and your support and for sharing your love of reading.

  10. I’ve read a couple of other Jenn J McLeod books that I’ve received through the Beauty and Lace book club and so I had high expectations for this book too. And it didn’t disappoint! The story was set in a lovely Australian outback setting and the descriptions made it so easy for me to picture the settings as I read along.

    I enjoyed the characters and although the story was a bit predictable (I mean, it was obvious how it was going to end up), but the path taken to get there was not predictable. I found the book easy to read, but difficult to put down as I just had to know what was going to happen next.

    I definitely recommend this book for anyone who loves a good Australian outback romance. Thanks again for another great book to review >:o)

    1. Thank you, Simone, I can actually share something with you about the end. That ending was not my original one. At my editor’s suggestion, I changed it. Sometimes as writers we are guided through processes that will be ‘beneficial’ for the book’s success (and only a foolish writer goes against such advice!!!!) Maybe one day, after the book has been out a while, I will post the original last few chapters on my website. In the ned (pardon the pun) I was happy with both endings. I’m glad you enjoyed the read. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

  11. I really hate when a book is hyped up and then is a huge let down.
    A Place to Remember is certainly not one of them.
    The main characters Ava and John are very likable
    and the settings are spectacular in their descriptions.
    McLeod touches on quite a few controversial subjects.
    The story spanning over 30 years is easy to follow and even when you think it is predictable,
    the twists and turns to get to the conclusion will make you not want to put this book down.
    Jenn J. McLeod has written beautifully and this has become one of my favourite books
    and I highly recommend it to lovers of Rural Romance and fans of Australian Women Authors.

    1. I love being a favourite book. Thank you for the lovely review and for also adding it to Goodreads. Sites like that and the Australian Women Writers site that Michelle also posts to are important to authors and I appreciate the time it takes to do do this stuff when there are so many good books out there to read. A huge thank you from me.

  12. After hearing people rave about this book on the beauty and lace fb page, i certainly had high expectations and i have to say I couldnt put it down from the moment i started. I am a long time fan of romance novels and I love that that what i thought would happen didnt and whom i thought was at fault was not. Its pretty rare that i come across a book with a different story line and an unpredictable plot and that is why this book is my favorite so far. I thouroughly enjoyed it, so much so that i read it in 2days. I dont get alot of time to read with 2 children under 2 and i loved it so much i was staying up till 2am because i couldnt put it down.

    I loved the characters and the funny cooking banter throughout, certainly made me giggle. Curious to know how the author came up with all those lines….

    This book was very well written and easy to follow and although romance is my favourite genre this book was somewhat very different to anything else iv read and i loved that.

    The setting at ivy may sounds like a truely beautiful place and has only added to my desire to travel the australian outback and our beautiful country.

    I am really looking forward to reading more of Jenn J. Mcleods books in the future and i highly recommend reading this one especially if u love romance novels .

    1. Wow! Dannielle, thank you so much for your lovely review and sorry about the sleepless nights. If it helps, I had a few of those while plotting this baby!!!! As for the cookery banter, well, that is just me: a bit silly sometimes and a lover of food!!!!!!! Your words made ME smile, so thank you.

  13. Jenn J McLeod you just keep getting better and better. You’re like a fine wine 😉

    Having read all Jenn’s previous novels I have noticed one thing.
    With every book Jenn’s writing style is growing and changing and as a reader I am enjoying being taken along on this ride with you.

    Reading the story I so wanted answers to my questions and just when I would think I’m there Jenn would take me to the next part of the story from another character’s view.
    I would be annoyed yet excited to discover more at the same time.
    Each new part was like a new piece of a puzzle in that it gave you another insight into the story and the characters.

    Most stories are about young people falling in love and getting their happy ever after but not this one.
    Jenn has written a novel about the love that once was and can you ever find it again.
    This is a novel where the main characters are not just young people but also mature aged people.
    Love happens where ever it happens and it happens to whoever it happens to regardless of age, time and years apart.
    Can an old love be a new love?
    Can time bring back what was lost?
    Can feelings still be found?
    Can love survive?

    So many questions that have so many answers and somehow Jenn has brought them all into the story of John and Ada.
    A story so unique and yet sometimes just the same as everyone else’s.
    Jenn has managed to write a story that will make you smile. My family kept giving me funny looks and when I asked what was wrong they said they could tell when it was a part I liked as I was smiling so much as I was reading.
    You know it’s a good book if you feel it and that’s all down to the authors ability to write it that way.
    Yes you will feel with this book. Feel so many things that you just can’t help to smile and frown and go through many emotions reading this book.
    There are people to like, people to not like, people that make you cringe but you find their stories within this story.
    Many wonderful bits and pieces of a family that will do what it has to to survive.

    Funny cooking terms and banter between characters (dad jokes the kids would say) makes it a fun read with an unpredictable discovery that will leave you rethinking those characters.

    I fell in love with Ada and John and Candlebark Creek I’m sure you’re out there somewhere. I’ll start looking for you soon.

    Heart warming love story told on an awesome backdrop of the beautiful landscape of Australia.

    **Jenn
    I had a little trouble at first thinking of John Tate as a love interest for someone. I have an older brother John and there is only one letter difference between Tate and my maiden name. 😀
    Reading the name of John’s father gave me a giggle as Colin is my husbands name.
    Are you putting my family in your books now. 😀 😀 😀

  14. From the moment I knew this book was coming I was excited!! And it sure didn’t disappoint!

    I really love Jenn’s style of writing, it’s flawless. She always instantly draws you into the story, the characters are lovable and real and the setting described spectacularly, there really is nothing to fault with this whole book! (Actually there never is with Jenn’s books)

    The front cover is beautiful and as a person who sadly does offen judge a book by its cover this I find quite important.

    Would I recommend? Most definitely! I actually started recommending this one to friends before it’s release, before it was in my hands, I have that much confidence in Jenn’s writing!

    A 5star Australian author we should be proud of! Well done!

    Thanks to Beauty and Lace and Harper Collins for the chance to read and review another fantastic book!

    1. Oh, that is so lovely of you. I need to hijack some of that confidence you have in my writing when I get lost in a manuscript and think it’s rubbish. I thought that a LOT as I tried to bring this story together. Thank you so much, Kate.

  15. I love Jenn J McLeod novels and receiving her latest for review was super exciting. Like her previous books I was not disappointed. If it wasn’t so busy I would’ve pulled an all nighter to read all at once because I just wanted to know how it all panned out.
    This is the story of John and Ava, who through a sad twist of fate have their young love cut short when John loses his memory. Their lives however go on and they have families of their own. Curiosity gets the better of Ava though after 30 years and she returns to the beautiful Ivy May to see how John’s life turned out…the story goes from there and it’s just wonderful! I don’t want to give too much away.
    Easily a 5/5 star book and one I’ll be recommending to friends. My own copy will be lent to my Aunty to read.
    Thank you Jenn and Beauty & Lace for another great read x

  16. Thank you Harper Collins and Beauty & Lace Book Club for my copy of A Place to Remember by Jenn J McLeod in exchange for an honest review.

    Where do I start? Firstly, the blurb reminded me of another book I’ve read or movie I’ve seen and it frustrated me that I couldn’t remember what one it was. However, that’s probably a good thing as I more than likely would’ve compared the two throughout the story.

    I really enjoyed how the story twists and turns and flicks back and forth between the past and the present and between the mother and daughters story. This was written really well and I had no difficulty following it.

    Some parts of the story annoyed me such as the mother always calling her daughter ‘darling’. I don’t know why but this really grated. Also, there were several places throughout the book where it rehashed what had happened earlier. It was almost as if it was a couple of books turned into one and the sequels were reminding readers of what had happened in previous books. Considering I’d only just read about the events a couple of chapters previously, thus was unnecessary.

    The descriptions of country Australia were stunning and have made me want to take a road trip! The characters were strong and some of the subjects touched upon are controversial and not usually found in romance novels. Although this story is a romance, it’s certainly not your standard ‘damsel in distress- white knight to the rescue’ romance – it goes much deeper than that. I also loved that the characters stayed true to Aussie culture and lingo and weren’t Americanised!

    I enjoyed this novel, my first by Ms McLeod, and look forward to reading more of her work.

  17. A Place to Remember is told in two time frames. Ava in her late 50’s and with failing health looks back 30 years to her 20’s and a love that ended abruptly sending her around the world on a quest in her late father’s honour. Present day Ava is a highly successful business woman who has brought up two children and run a large bakery franchise on her own. Her only regret is leaving the B & B Ivy-May, where she worked as a kitchen-hand, and the owners’ son, John, behind 30 years previously.

    The books main theme is one of lost love but the story runs through many themes that are relevant and important to life on the land. Issues such as keeping rural towns alive and ensuring the townsfolk have access to doctors and schools, diversification of properties such as incorporating a B & B or retreats into a cattle farm, recycling and responsible land and cattle management, the burden of debt on farmers and their families, have been scattered throughout the story.

    The story captures the fervour of love and the despair of a love lost, but never forgotten.

    McLeod writes women that are strong, determined and extremely likeable.

    There is so much depth to this story it’s hard for me to include everything in my review. Parent/ child relationships are also another driving force throughout the story.

    Finally; the setting of A Place to Remember, Ivy-May near Candlebark Creek in the Capricornia region of Queensland was a character in itself, beautifully described, evocative and alluring it will have many a reader eager to experience the setting in real life.

    McLeod’s entertaining and witty sense of humour is scattered throughout the story.

    Highly recommended for lovers of romance, secrets and rural settings.

  18. Oh my goodness, what a fantastic, captivating story. I had yet to be “blessed” in reading any of Jenn McLeod’s other books, but if this novel is any indication I will be seeking them out and adding Jenn McLeod to my favourite authors list.
    The story had me enthralled and captivated with both the characters but also Jenn McLeod’s sublime description of the Australian Outback (which I personally adore). The idea of simply deciding to meet again a 1st love after 35 years had me wanting to read more. But the entanglement of lives, histories, choices, fate and circumstances entwined between the characters of Ava, John, Nina, Blair and Katie was where the true “magic” of Jenn McLeod’s storytelling prowess shined in this novel. I could not put it down once started. Thank you to Beauty and Lace, Harper Collins Publishers and Jenn McLeod for the opportunity to read this novel,

  19. Wow! A Place To Remember is a beautiful love story affecting so many lives. This story moves from present to past and back giving us all the information we need At first it is about the love between John and Ava , Ava has dreams she wishes to fulfil, promises she’s made to her beloved father. But when she meets John he convinces her they are meant to be together. Unfortunately through a cruel twist of fate John loses his memory and Ava is banished from his life.

    Thirty years later a more mature and successful and curious Ava decides she needs to see John to see if he’s regained his memory.. This is where things develop not just for Ava and John but for their children.
    We learn so much about the characters as individuals and what drives them.
    I just loved this book and did not want to put it down as I had to find out what would happen in the end.
    It is a sad but feel good story that shows that proves love does stand the test of time.
    Not having read any of Jenn J McLeod’s books before I’m now looking forward to reading others.
    Thank you to Beauty and Lace and Harper Collins for giving me the opportunity to read and review this heart warming book.

  20. A place to remember is such a captivating book, captivating you from the first page.

    Following the story of Ava and John, who through a cruel twist of fate have their young love cut short after John loses his memory after a medical diagnosis.

    It picks up 30 years later where curiosity got the better of Ava and she finds herself making the trek from her home to the place that started it all, Ivy May.

    Not giving too much away the story picks up from here and takes you on a roller coaster of emotions making you ask the same question over and over… What if?

  21. My favourite thing about being apart of beauty and lace is being exposed to new authors I haven’t had the chance to read.

    This book by Jenn J. McLeod was my first I’ve read by this author. Although I say this in all my reviews it certainly won’t be my last.

    This book has been beautifully written I love dual timeline stories. This book kept me on edge and I loved reading it. A book of loss, love, what ifs. I was taken on a ride of emotions throughout the entire book and I loved every minute of it. Thank you Jenn J. McLeod for a fabulous book.
