Eva Scott had me laughing out loud while reading While You were in the Country.
Frankie Fox has always loved the AFL, and had spent time daydreaming about marrying star player Jed Murphy. Not even his bad behaviour can tamper with her daydreams.
Venturing to Coolangatta and meeting Ant, she finds (much to her surprise) that there is a spark between them.
After a wonderful night together, she wakes to a message urging her to dash home to the country town of Kalbar. She leaves Ant a note and hits the road.
On her way home her path crosses with Jed’s, and that’s when her life suddenly changes and she becomes his girlfriend. She soon discovers that all those daydreams were not quite what the reality is.
Her heart really lies with Ant, who hasn’t been in touch since the night they spent together. She is stunned when, without warning, Ant turns up on her doorstep. That’s when the real fun begins.
I really delight in Eva Scott’s writing. She has a way of dragging you in and making you feel that you are part of the story rather than just an observer. This book will give you more than a few giggles and I can imagine it as a compelling TV movie.
Put this one on your summer reading list.
