Outback Brides of Wirralong:Tess
By Victoria Purman
Can a town known for “I do,” change her “I don’t?”
Up and coming American winemaker Tess Harrison is temporarily working at an Australian vineyard where her family now has a financial stake. She’s excited to make her mark away from her dominant family and the outback’s premier organic winery seems like the perfect training ground. One problem: No one told her the small town Wirralong was a premier wedding destination, and every time tomboy Tess turns around she’s confronted with white dresses, trails of petals, gleaming gold rings and starry-eyed kissing couples promising forever. When a new hire upends Tess’ careful plans for her life and her career, she find herself reluctantly re-thinking her dislike for the M word.
Tall, dark and rugged-looking Australian Connor Hawker has just been hired as the new Irrigation Manager at an organic vineyard. This new job was meant to be a fresh start, far away from South Australia and the small church where he was dumped at the altar by his French fiancée. He wants nothing more than to be laser-focused on his new job, except he finds himself distracted by the talented, cheerful, and ambitious blonde winemaker from California. Soon their no-strings fling becomes far more complicated, and Connor wonders if another woman–with life plans across an ocean will again leave him alone.
Can Connor trust in love again and will Tess realize it’s not the wedding she needs, but the love of a man like Connor.

This is the second book in the series of The Outback Brides of Wirralong.
This is the story of Tess and Connor. It is a page turner that you will not put down and is a fun quick read that will have you enjoying every moment of it.
I love heading back to Wirralong to read about the characters from there and to meet new ones.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one and of course I can’t wait to finish reading the rest of this series.
Victoria has written some great characters and I think she loves this place as much as her readers do.
What a fantastic second book!!!
See in the next chapter
