The heroine is half American half Asian and this is her story of six months spent in Australia. The story covers both her working life in Brisbane and her romantic escapades in Surfers Paradise. I found the descrption of her life fascinating and believable. Some of the work stuff was a bit heavy but it rang true, and you can skim through it if you want. The romance between Lea and Ben worked well. She is a professional and he is not quite a beach bum, but he doesn't earn much, though he seems to have a pretty good life. There were shades of Crocodile Dundee but Ben is a muscian and crafstman. There is a mystery surrounding Lea's predecessor in her job, Winona, and hints all the way through about what happened to her, but it's not until the end that you find out the truth. All the ends were neatly tied up and yet there are obviously several sequels. I like that the following books will be set in other countries. I can be an armchair traveller!Was this review helpful?
