I have read a few of Mandy Magro’s books over the years so I was very excited to read her latest ‘Back to the Country’ and it didn’t disappoint.

Aussie girl Indigo Nash has found fame and fortune through her country music career and is now based in America.  Her long time friend Harley travels with her as her bodyguard. 

He is very aware of Indigo’s internal struggle due to her harsh upbringing with an alcoholic father and the sudden disappearance of her brother Robbie who had also been his best friend.  The constant hope and longing was that Robbie would one day arrive back home and explain why and where he had been all these years.

With the sudden death of Indigo’s father she now has to decide if she and Harley will return to Australia so she can deal with all the legal side of his passing.  Harley talks her into returning. 

Once back in Australia she finds she can relax as she is away from the public eye and the stress of constant travel and hotel rooms. 

This is when she has to face her true emotions and deal with her feelings for Harley, the concern over what to do with her fathers property and the financial concerns her dearest friend and Harley’s sister Amy is facing.

This is a great rainy weekend read and has some lovely twists and turns to keep you on your toes.   Mandy Magro’s writing flows so easily and her characters are easy to feel connected to.  This is a very enjoyable read.

  2. Thank you for the copy of Back To The Country by Mandy Magro.
    This is the story of country music star Indigo Nash. She is at the peak of her career in America, but her demons are making it harder to cope. Harley Knight, Indigo’s childhood friend is now her bodyguard – and has been touring with her. He convinces her to return to Kuranda hoping she can heal there.
    Being back Indigo has to deal with her feelings for Harley in a relaxed place. She also has to work out what to do with her deceased father’s property and the many memories it holds. Lastly, her best friend and Harley’s sister Amy has been facing hard times of her own and Inigo has to work out how to help her.
    This is a definite rural romance wit the Aussie slang flowing in parts. The characters are easy to like and want the best for. It felt like things should flow a certain way, but roadblocks were put in the way much as life can do. The ending happened quite quickly, but I would still love another story of these two – so would recommend for lovers of this genre.

  7. Mandy Magro is my favorite author and this book is going to sit proudly in my book collection.
    As all her other books, this book is set on Australian countyside and this time it is based in Kuranda, a picturesque rainforest village near Cairns.

    This is based on a traumatic life of an award winning country music artist Indigo Nash and how she overcomes her past while realizing her love for his best friend.
    Its a great story of friendship, love and country love.
    The characters are very realistic and storyline is very engaging. I loved reading this book and it made me feel good.
