Meredith Appleyard is a South Australian author whose early career offers a wealth of inspiration for her novels.

Home at Last is the newest release and one I’m sure our readers will love.

Publisher’s Website Overview:

Flying solo can be harder than it looks … A warm-hearted rural romance about finding your way home.

Flying solo for the first time had been the greatest high of Anna Kelly’s life. So when the chance of a dream job as a pilot with the Royal Flying Doctor Service comes up she takes it, even though she has to leave her home in Adelaide and move to remote Broken Hill – a place she had hoped she would never see again.

The bad memories the town provokes remind Anna why she keeps men at arm’s length but as her work proves fulfilling, her housemate becomes a friend and a warm community grows around her, Anna is surprised to discover that Broken Hill is starting to feel like home.

But there is no such thing as plain sailing and with errant mothers, vengeful ex-patients and determined exes on the prowl, life is becoming increasingly complicated. More than that, the distractingly attractive Flight Nurse Nick Harrison seems keen to get to know her better, and he has a way of finding a path through her defences. But will he still want her if the truth comes out?

  1. Thank you Beauty and Lace for giving me the opportunity to read this book. I really enjoyed this book. It was easy to read and kept me engaged. I finished it in a few days. Will keep an eye out for more books from this author!

  2. A lovely light romance novel set in Broken Hill. Not my usual choice of book, but I really enjoyed it.

    I love the role reversal. Anna is a fiercely independent single mother, working as a pilot for the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Nick is a nurse with a huge crush on Anna. I loved how Nick was more interested than Anna, and was emotionally involved from early on. Anna was reluctant to let anyone get close to her, even drinks after work with colleagues was to be avoided. With trust issues, a determination not to have any fun whatsoever, and an obsession with keeping all personal information about herself absolutely private, it’s not easy for Nick to convince Anna to let him into her life. Even when he gets into her bed, she still wont confide in him.

    The RFDS flights out to various properties added some drama and were very interesting. Great supporting characters, an good plot, a very enjoyable read.

  3. Once I started reading this book I was through it in no time as I found it a really enjoyable book. Home at Last follows the story of Anna Kelly and Nick Harrison. Anna is a pilot for the Royal Flying Doctors service and Nick is a flight nurse and they are both based out of Broken Hill. Nick grew up in Broken Hill and Anna lived for a short time in Broken Hill when her father was the principal of the local High school. The chemistry between Nick and Anna is obvious but both are holding back with their own secrets that could end up jeopardising their budding romance. It is a nice easy read that gives an interesting insight into the Royal Flying Doctors service. A great book for anyone who loves a rural romance.
