Janet Gover has done it again!!!

I loved The Wild One and reading Little Girl Lost and going back to Coorah Creek is like visiting old friends. Characters I know and love pop into the story but the main focus is on Tia Walsh, Max Delaney, Sarah Travers and Peter Rankin.

Tia is working on the Goongalla Mines and trying to escape a dark past. She is broken but strong. Max was a big city cop transferred to outback Coorah Creek as punishment for sticking by his morals. He has high morals and a kind he

Any excuse to revisit Coorah Creek is fine by me, and this is another stunning story set in this amazing community!

There's a lot going on in this book and I struggled to put it down once I had started as I just wanted to know how it would all end up! From Tia turning up in town on her motorbike and working at the mine trying to keep her past firmly in the past, to Sarah returning to town to see her poorly father and help out at the store they run - and to the out of towners who turn up for a wee

There are some fictional towns where the residents become as familiar as your own next door neighbor. Coorah Creek is one such town. This visit we’ll meet a woman desperately running from her past with no hope for a future and the lawman who may just be her every single answer. A young woman facing the very adult reality of an ill parent and taking more of the load off of their shoulders. And a man who will make one choice for all the wrong reasons and will learn tha

Trying to escape her past, Tia Walsh arrives in Coorah Creek on a Harley-Davidson. She passes the test for a job at the Goongalla uranium mine driving a huge Caterpillar truck. That’s enough to tell you this is not your average young woman. Though she is part of the mine team she holds herself separate from the others. Due to her past experience trust is not something that comes easily to Tia. In Coorah Creek she meets Max Delaney, the local police officer. Max is something Tia has not encounter ...more

Another fabulous story from Janet Gover! She really knows how to tug at your heartstrings and sweep you away to the Australian outback – it is so perfectly described I really felt I was there with the characters in the burning sun, being covered with red dust. And you get not just one, but two love stories, both equally wonderful – not to be missed!

An enjoyable read. The setting and characters didn't quite gel for me, perhaps I would have benefitted from reading the other books in the series first. Lovely descriptive writing in places.

This is my first visit to Coorah Creek. I really enjoyed the setting in the Australian outback. I liked the way the book ran with two couples - Tia, Max, Sarah and Pete, all four connected in some way, but each with their own problems. Well written with likeable characters and an excellent plot...and, of course, a happy ending.

What a lovely book. Janet Gover does it again.
I really love the Coorah Creek books - it feels like a real place now. I enjoyed Tia and Max's story a lot. I think I enjoyed Sarah and Pete's story even more. I think Pete is just adorable.

A little girl goes missing in the bush and a whole town turns out to find her. It's a lovely story about community spirit and about forgiving yourself. The bit about the little girl made me cry.

I got a free copy of this book off Netgalley, in return for an honest

There is more than one girl lost in this story and that is what makes it such a great read!
Tia has had a hard knocks kind of life. Coming to Goongalla Mines to work as a woman in the mines, has given her a refreshing newness to her life and a remote place to hide. She has just passed a test to drive one of the huge Caterpillar trucks in the open cut mine where she is working and that says a lot when you pass that test!
Tia has also been allowed to rent one of the trailer homes inside the big com

Oh how I loved, loved, loved this book! Janet Gover never fails to deliver with her heart-wrenching and beautifully delivered tales of Coorah Creek, and Little Girl Lost is no exception.

First off, I read this in about five hours one evening. I knew if I started it I wouldn't put it down until I had finished, and I was fine with that, so I chose an evening where I didn't have work the next day. A Coorah Creek novel always means an evening locked away reading. Second off, I finished this and then

What on earth can I say about Coorah Creek that I haven't said in previous reviews. It is the most remarkable community of people, in the outback in Australia. Trish who runs the main bar is central to everything in life there, and is a force to be reckoned with. She knows all the gossip and is a lynchpin.

Everyone you meet in Coorah Creek, are just good people, generally honest, hard working and generous of nature and spirit. This is the fourth book set in this amazing location, but it can easi

Tia has spend most her life as a runaway and now she feels she can maybe stop and take a break. She finds a job in the last place anyone would look for her and she is hopeful she can stay a little while this time. Max is a cop place in the furthest place away from anyone almost as a punishment for doing whats right. He loves what he does but when Tia catches his eye he knows there is something she's hiding but he needs to know her and he can't figure out why.

Being lost is not easy whether you are a six or nearly 26. This story deals with finding one’s way home and was intense, heartwarming and delightful. I felt as if I were in the outback and made friends with the Coorah Creek community. GREAT story!

Tia Walsh hopes Coorah Creek will be a place she can hide and perhaps finally call home. She has been on the run for a decade. Sgt. Max Delaney. Police chief, is a strong, good, kind and giving man who is immediately attracted to Tia when he sees her. S

Two romances and a search for a lost child all in one amazing story, Little Girl Lost by Janet Gover. Fourth in the series but really the books can be read in any order. So if this is the first one that you pick up to read, you will meet the rest of the Coorah Creek Community but you will fit right into the story. And “fit right in” is a true image of reading this novel because for the time that you are reading this book you are transported to the Australian Outback.

I truly wish Coorah Creek was real! There are probably outback towns that are similar, but maybe not inhabited by the world's nicest people!

I was so excited when I got this ARC and couldn't wait to get started. A day later and I'm done :( And feel bereft. I so loved my time with Tia, Max, Sarah and Dan.

A child goes missing and potential romances are put on hold in order to organise a search. Janet conveys the vastness and emptiness of the outback beautifully. She contrasts light and dark so wel

Well, I was disappointed when I read this book. Why? Because I found out it was book four in a series and I had missed out on the other three!

Tia is starting a new life in Coorah Creek in the outback after running from a bad situation in Brisbane. She intends to keep to herself, earn her living, and hopes to live like normal people do. Max is an honest cop, which is how he ended up in Coorah Creek. One doesn't pull over the Minister of Police for a DUI and then refuse to expunge the c

Being Australia Day today it was good to read Janet's Coorah Creek's next episode.
The community pulling together around finding " a little girl lost". yes I remember the song for the boy who was lost "little boy lost" in the sixties.
Yes, it was emotional reading through the drama.
I really like Janet's characters, to meet up with them again and Tia/Max/Sarah/Pete who this story revolves. A particular line that gets repeated "sometimes the right thing isn't right" has you thinking not for the s

I would like to thank NetGalley and Choc Lit publishers for giving me the opportunity to read this in exchange for an honest and open review.
Although my usual reading genre is anything dark and mysterious, I do enjoy reading romantic tales, particularly from Choc Lit. I find that their books have a lot more depth to them.
This book proves this. There is mystery and suspense as well as the story of two couples falling in love.
The characters are so well drawn that I felt I knew them by the end of t

I really enjoyed getting to know Tia, Max, Peter and Sarah. Tia running from a life that got her mixed up in robbery and murder. Max the lone wolf of the local town, never being able to let his guard down truly because of his job. Sarah, back from the Big city for what she though was a visit. to realize that her fathers ill and to re-meet who may be the love of her life. And Peter, the trucker with a great heart.

When a young girl goes missing the whole town gathers to find her. Tia helps with the search little knowing that the publicity ...more

This was a new author for me and one I am sure is going to become a favourite. I loved the setting and small town community feel. As part of a series I am keen to read more. I really felt as though I was there amongst them whilst the search was going on and holding my breath. The suspense was well captured throughout. The background to the new character was intriguing, keeping you guessing and wanting a 'romantic' ending. It left you wanting to read more - and as it is a series I am delighted th ...more

I was rooting for Tia, Max, Sara, and Pete to all have their well deserved happy endings in this well written and entertaining romance. What was even better was the chance to visit Coorah Creek. Loved the descriptions of the outback, which has always been fascinating to me. THanks to netgalley for the ARC and to Choclit for bringing Australian books to the US market.
