I'm reading...Fiona Lowe


About time too!  I love love love Fiona Lowe's work.  She writes Medicals for Harlequin Mills and Boon and they are exactly as I like 'em; warm, deep, rich with texture, evocative with scenery, romantic and real.

What with Fiona being in Anaheim right now, and this book being up for the prestigious RITA Award for Best Contemporary Single Title romance, I couldn't wait a second longer!

BOOMERANG BRIDE is her first longer book and its just as glorious as everything of hers I've read!  Set in a deep Wisconsin winter rather than her usual small town Australia, it still has the same warmth, a cast of unique and wonderful characters, a heroine with warmth and guts, and a hero to fall smack bang in love with.

The clash of Australianisms and Americanisms was hilarious, as I remember having those exact same conversations on my trips to the US!


Matilda Geoffrey risked it all for love. She left Australia to be with Barry—the man who had swept her off her virtual feet. Now, wearing a wedding dress, she's alone on Main Street in small-town Wisconsin, and things aren't working out exactly as planned…

In town for his annual family visit, Marc Olsen had never seen a bride quite like Matilda—staring into a storefront window, holding a tottering wedding cake, and looking desperately in need of a groom. He may not have any warm feelings for his hometown,but meeting Matilda just as she discovers she's been scammed by her online "fiancé" stirs something in him. 

Matilda is not the kind of woman Marc imagined himself with, and Marc is anything but the romantic hero that Matilda has always dreamed of. But as unlikely circumstances throw them together, can they let go of their misconceptions and risk their hearts for love?
