Charlie Dickerson is desperate to get away from small-town minds and all the painful reminders of her ex. What better way than to travel halfway around the world? A wildlife rescue exchange program in Australia looks like the perfect solution to her current predicament.
Pip Atkins has an innate affinity for wildlife, but people are another story. When she’s tasked with looking after an American wildlife carer on a work exchange, the thought of someone shadowing her every move for twelve whole months represents the ultimate nightmare.
Worlds apart, but forced together, Charlie and Pip struggle to find a middle ground, as they discover they have more in common than they think.

About the Author
Mardi Alexander (Author)
Mardi grew up on the Mid North Coast of Australia, with big rivers, sun, surf, and sand all within reach. Among Mardi’s greatest loves are watching storms out to sea and sitting on a rock wall, fishing and watching the world go by. She moved inland to study, where the mountains called to her and eventually stole her heart. It’s where she now calls home, along with her partner, two dogs, two cats, and a couple of hundred sheep. Life in the country is never boring, with no two days being the same. Her greatest frustration is that neither she nor anyone else has been able to create the perfect water pump that never breaks down. Easily bored, Mardi is always on the lookout for a new project of some sort or other, including, but not limited to, music, animals, drawing, woodwork, and now writing. When she’s not working full-time, Mardi is also a volunteer firefighter, firefighting instructor, and a member of a local wildlife rescue service looking after orphaned, sick, and injured native animals.
