Publisher's Summary

Maggie Walker has never called Wirra Station home. Orphaned as a child, she spent more time at boarding school and then working in the city than she ever spent on the edge of the outback. But when her great aunt dies, Maggie inherits everything and reluctantly returns to tidy the place up before selling. 

Ambitious cowboy-next-door Max O’Connor has the means and the desire to buy Wirra Station outright and return it to its former glory. But first, he wants elusive Maggie Walker to know what she’s giving up. He challenges her to live at Wirra Station for three months - with him as farm manager. Just one season - and if she still doesn’t love the place, he’ll gladly pay up and she can be cashed-up and careless, with no ties to anything or anyone.

Three months. Two hearts. One summer. Roll on.

An intriguing and fun read

Maggie's Run Outback Brides, Book 1
By: Kelly Hunter
Narrated by: Amy Soakes

As the last member of her family, Maggie has to return to her hometown to handle her family estate after her great aunt dies. She has no intention of staying at her family’s farm, Wirra Station, which carries nothing but bad memories for her. She plans to liquidate the entire farm when her childhood friend and neighbor make her a very enticing offer.

This is a romance with a unique situation, making it an intriguing and fun read. The narrator, Amy Soakes, performs beautifully; she makes a great story better. I look forward to hearing more of her performances and more about Maggie and Max. I give this book and huge 4 stars.

My Thoughts on Maggie's Run

This was my first Kelly Hunter book, but I was very impressed by it. Max and Maggie were solid, very well developed characters. And they were likable. The kind of characters you root for and hope for only good things to happen for them from now on. I couldn't even decide which I liked more. That's how great these characters were.

This was, initially anyway, an enemies to lovers type story. Even if only on one side. I won't tell in this review who, but I hope every one reads this one to find out. Or listen like I did.

Maggie had some baggage to work through and there were secrets from her past to contend with as well. Max had always been her savior and even when she didn't always appreciate it.

I really enjoyed this narrator. Particularly on the female parts, but even on the male ones too. And the accent was awesome. I need more books with accents in my audio library clearly.

This was a really good story overall and one I would definitely recommend.

Sometimes going home is the hardest thing to do.

Sometimes going home isn't all that it's cracked up to be. This is even more so for Maggie Walker, who does not consider Wirra Station her home...even though this is where she grew up after her parents were killed in a car accident. Orphaned at a young age and sent to live with a resentful great aunt, Maggie has a difficult time considering the sheep farm 'home'. Besides, the place is in dire need of some TLC...and cash for that TLC is not available. Maggie decides to sell! Max O'Connor is Maggie's childhood friend, the boy who literally saved her life by pulling her from the accident wreckage. However, Maggie still harbors resentment towards Max, believing that he should have also saved her parents. When Maggie approaches Max about buying Wirra Station from her, he believes that she's making a mistake by selling her heritage. Max convinces Maggie to stay at Wirra for 3 months, with him as the farm manager, before she makes the final decision. Over the summer, Maggie's outlook slowly changes towards both the property and its manager. Is there an HEA for Maggie and Max?
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

More Than A Neighbor’s Wager

When Maggie Walker inherits a country property from her aunt, she plans to repair Wirra Stage to make it more appealing to sell. Max O’Connor who is her next door neighbor posses a wager to have Maggie stay on the property for three months prior to selling while he promises to manage the farm during that time. If after three months , this city gal does not find a place for Wirra Station in her heart, then Max will assume the property outright allowing Maggie to return to the city and her former life. That being said, Wirra Station is not the only thing that works it’s way into her heart...

The story’s dialogue flowed well between characters making it easy to discern each. The narrator used proper voice inflection based upon the emotion and occurrences in the book at that given time. She employs natural pauses that contribute to the story’s description and details. The dialogue presented was conducted in such a fashion that her voice made it possible to produce a visual image. Her performance enhanced the story and created the atmosphere for this audiobook to be enjoyed and appreciated.

I received a free copy of this audiobook however, the review is given honestly and voluntarily

Take me to the Outback!

I have never been to Australia, but Kelly Hunter has sparked the interest in me to go. Maggie inherits Wirra Station, and with unhappy childhood memories ventures back. She is unsure if she will keep the ranch, but has some ideas and if subdivision works, it will hopefully all work out. Max, the sheep farmer is interested in purchasing the land. These two have an unusual history, and though there is attraction, Maggie is not sure she is going to stay. There is a lot to this short story and Kelly Hunter has written it with well developed characters and an interesting story line. There is tragedy to overcome, financial hardship, and secrets to be revealed. I love the characters, Maggie is a tough girl, she has some issues, but a strong work ethic and lot of ambition. Max is warm and understanding, and while his desire to grow his sheep farm is strong, his attraction to Maggie is stronger. These two compliment each other well and I love their journey to happiness.

Narrated by Amy Soakes, her Aussie accent gives this story the authenticity of being in the Outback. I loved her voices for the characters, each has it's own personality and is easily distinguishable. Her pace is perfect and she makes this listen full of the emotional drive it is and takes you with Max and Maggie as they grow.
