On The Right Track is the second novel by Australian author Penelope Janu and it features Tor Amundsen, the twin brother of Per who was our hero in In At The Deep End. That doesn’t mean that the two books are connected and I don’t believe they are, except by the familial linking of heroes.

Golden Saunders is carrying an injury from a horse-riding accident and is trying to live a quiet life away from her family after they were caught up in a corruption scandal. Golden thought she’d already hit rock bottom but it seems there’s more yet for her to face.

Tor Amundsen is a United Nations diplomat who arrives on her doorstep to investigate her family, dragging her right back to the world she escaped. There is friction between the two from the start because Tor is frustrated by the combination of fierceness and fragility in Golden yet still he is protective of her. Golden is over being pushed around by men but sees the side of Tor that has a way with animals and children.

The two are pulled deep into a mess of dirty money and the quiet life Golden worked for will be turned on its head.

If this book is anything like In At The Deep End it’s going to have the perfect mix of humour, mystery and romance and I can’t wait to sink my teeth in.

  1. Thanks to the Beauty & Lace Book Club and Harlequin Books for providing this book to me to read.

    This is the first book I have read of Penelope Janu’s. I loved it and now I want to read more of her work.

    I found ‘On the Right Track’ hard to put down until I was finished….not so good for getting the housework done. 🙂 Golden is a likeable character along with her ‘happy ever after’ Tor.

    Now I just want Penelope Janu to write another novel telling us about Nate’s ‘happy ever after’.

  2. I had never read anything from this author until this book. I absolutely loved it!! Looking forward to reading more of her books.

  3. Thanks for the opportunity to read and review ‘On the right track’ by Penelope Janu. This book taught me again that you should never judge a book by its cover. It was so much more than I expected and I was totally engrossed until the end.

    The story centres around Golden Saunders who lives a quiet live on her grandfathers property after an injury. That quiet life is turned upside down by the arrival of Tor Amundsen investigating a horse racing corruption scandal involving her much loved grandfather. The investigation pulls Golden back into the industry that she feels turned its back on her when her grandfather passed away.

    The story had so many great complex relationships to explore – with her mother, step father and sister and of course the feelings that develop between Golden and Tor….

    A perfect book for a weekend away, I highly recommend you read it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  4. I was given the opportunity to read and review ‘On the Right Track’ by Penelope Janu.

    Golden is a young woman who lives on her grandfather’s property in country Australia. She is haunted by a horse-riding accident that caused significant damage to her leg. Golden now works as a speech pathologist with children on the family property, combining her love of animals and the farm, to help others.

    Her world is turned upside down when Tor enters her life to investigate her father and grandfather’s alleged involved in illegal actions at the race course.

    I found myself wanting to undercover the mystery behind Golden’s family, so I could not put this book down once I started. There is a nice combination of romance that balances out the storyline.

    I also really enjoyed the references in this book to Australian plants and trees, it really provided me with an image of the landscape.

    Thank you to Beauty and Lace for allowing me to read and review ‘On the Right Track’ by Penelope Janu.

  5. On The Right track was seriously one of the most amazing books I have ever read! I found myself unable to put it down!

    I loved the mystery throughout the story and the investigations Golden conducted had me on the edge of my seat.

    Seriously cannot wait for the next book! Thank you Beauty & Lace and thank you Penelope for a great read!
