I'm so sorry! I tried to like this book and I did...except I was so annoyed whenever the characters opened their mouths! I got so irked by the constant colloquialisms and then the clunky way the author would explain their meaning to the uninitiated. I couldn't read past Chapter 6, just dreaded picking it up. Again...sorry but I'd read Heart Of Gold 100 times before looking at this again....that's how to write an Australian story without making everyone Captain Ocker.

This was a great story, but I did find the amount of Aussie Slang a bit over used. Obviously being an Australian I knew what it all meant, but would think that anyone from overseas would have had a problem with some of it. I enjoyed the characters in the story and found them quite genuine. Looking forward to reading more by this Author.

Rosalee Station had the potential to be quite a good book, but, unfortunately, it didn’t even come close to reaching its potential. The plot idea for the novel was an interesting one, but it wasn’t explored thoroughly enough. This combined with the predictability of the resolution, which was caused by the absolute lack of plot twists, is what mainly let the novel down.

However, Rosalee Station might have been less of a disappointment had the c

I enjoyed this book by Mandy Magro . It was a great read about two young people finding love when they least expect it. When they are both in other relationship that are having problems but with the help of friends and family they both find the way to each other. A bit of Aussie slang is the the book as well as the story is set out on the Australian Outback.

I really enjoyed this book in the end! For the first half I found the "ockerisms" painful ! Tring too hard with the Aussie slang ! The author seemed to settle down in the end and then, I loved it!
