About the Book:

The last thing advertising art director Lucy Bellamy wants is to go home to the Outback, but duty to family calls. At least there’s one bonus—her first love, sexy cowboy neighbour, Garth Mackenzie, is there and the attraction between them is still explosive. But Lucy has no intention of getting stuck in this two-bit town and she counts down the days until she can go back to her real life.

After an engineering degree and working in the mines of Western Australia, Garth has returned to the Outback and is home to stay. His goal is to settle down, start a family, and work his beloved land with the girl he’s always loved. But if it comes to Lucy choosing between the glamour of the city or making a home with him in the Outback—he’d lose, hands down.

In Her Outback Cowboy (Prickle Creek #1) by Annie Seaton, when her grandmother asks her to return home and help out on their outback property, Lucy Bellamy reluctantly agrees. But there's no way she's sticking around longer than she has to, even after she comes face-to-face with her first love, Garth Mackenzie. However, the more time she spends with Garth, the harder she finds it to choose between returning to the city or staying in the country. Will Garth be convince Lucy that they deserve a second chance at happy ever after?

What a wonderful and engrossing tale Ms. Seaton has penned in this first book of her Prickle Creek series, which encompasses the second chance romance trope; an independent heroine who has her heart set on returning to the city once she helps her family; and a hero that is finally ready to see what the future has in store for him, if he can convince the heroine to give him a second chance. The way this story started had me liking Lucy and her cousins immediately, as they have a tight bond where they would do anything for each other and their loyalty is palpable through their dialogue and their actions. Is their grandmother manipulating them? Why does she want each of them to return home?

Both the main characters were riveting and I loved every moment they conversed. There was some fun banter between them, which illustrated how close they were in the past and how the moment they come face-to-face for the first time in this story was a good reminder of the past they shared. Furthermore, the heroine has some tough choices to make and I liked the decisions she did make, because they were right for her in the end. How could she return to the city without Garth by her side?

As for the heroine, Lucy is resilient, brave and I liked how determined she was to accomplish what she has in her life considering her past. She's also quite stubborn in her quest to get back to the city, even though she's falling for Garth all over again. While the hero, he's done a lot in his past to get to where he is in his life. His love for the Outback and being home as well as his determination to make his property a success shines through the dialogue and from his point of view. I also liked how kind and caring he was towards Lucy's grandparents, even knowing what they thought about him. But what I liked most about the hero was his willingness to help the heroine with what she asked of him when it came to her work.

Overall, this story was a wonderful read where the chemistry between the main characters was strong and had me cheering for this couple's happy ever after, as they both know that every day spent with someone they love should be cherished instead of continuing to stay away from each other. The way this story ended was delightful, because of the hero's words to the heroine and how he would do whatever it takes to be with her. However, it was the epilogue that wrapped this story up perfectly, as readers discover what comes next for this couple's relationship and I loved the words to the song Garth was singing. I would recommend Her Outback Cowboy by Annie Seaton, if you enjoy sweet cowboy romances, the second chance romance trope, or books by authors Anne B. Harrison, Amy Andrews, Tess McCallum or SM Spencer.
