About the Book

A collection of rural suspense stories from three bestselling Australian authors.

Legacy of Hunters Ridge by Sarah Barrie

Widowed, in debt and under suspicion of arson, Alissa Morgan-Jones sees taking over her mother-in-law's isolated farm as an opportunity to get herself back on her feet.

Four years after fleeing the scandal that ruined his career, disgraced lawyer Cameron Blakely has a new life in Hunters Ridge. And when the new girl in town takes over the farm next door he's drawn to her immediately. But there are secrets in both Alissa's past and Hunters Ridge. Lurking in the isolated wilderness is a danger that neither anticipates - but one that threatens everything: the town, their love, and their lives.

Secrets at Wongan Creek by Juanita Kees

When spray drift ruins his crop, Harley Baker wants to confront his neighbour. But arguments are tricky when it's the woman he's loved his whole life.

But the simple action of speaking with Harley sparks an unexpected chain of events that throws everything she's ever known into question: her past, her family, her life...

When Elly walks into his station, she reminds him of all the childhood joy and love he'd forgotten. But when harassment escalates to murder, Elly knows her presence has put Adam's life at risk. Everyone's safer if she remains alone - a fact that her stalker is counting on...
