Nicole Hurley-Moore is quickly establishing herself as one to watch in the rural romance genre. If you have a penchant for rural stories with plenty of heart, then look no further than Country Roads or Nicole Hurley-Moore’s previous two books.

Two very different leads are at the helm of Nicole Hurley-Moore’s latest novel, from chalk and cheese style backgrounds. Our leading lady, Bec Duprey, single-handedly runs her family’s property in the tiny town of White

Rebecca Duprey is doing all she can to keep her family's farm afloat. It's not easy single handedly running a sheep station especially with her father not trusting her advice and her former fiance nosing around. When author Matt Harvey moves in next door, Bec isn't interested. She doesn't have the time to spend on someone who may be back off to the city at any moment. Despite neither Matt nor Bec being interested in a new relationship, both of them are drawn to each other and they need to decide ...more

This is a rural romance fiction. Wasn’t sure whether I’ll like it or not. The first quarter of the book is boring, but binge read rest of the story. The story is a bit slow, but the details make it worth the read. It’s about two entirely different people, who come from different places and have different interests. Both of them are trying to recover from loss and get over the traumatic situation. Matt lost a loved one, while Bec is dealing with betrayal and they both find comfort and healing wit ...more

I love rural romances and I had high hopes for this. Unfortunately it wasn't very enjoyable. I hate writing 'bad' reviews but I also like to be honest.

The things that bugged me most:

Errors: For a published book, I was surprised by the amount of errors there were. Either missing words or glaringly obvious typos. I won't list them here but anyone who's read it will see them for themselves. They were frequent enough to be off putting I'm sorry to say.

Humour: Or lack thereof. It was quite off puttin

A beautiful story of falling in love again after being by the one person you thought loved you the same back as Bec Duprey learned four years earlier that Zane Tanner the man she was engaged to cheated on her with Tanya. Bec helps run Bluestone Ridge the family farm day and night and it one of the biggest in White Gum Creek with her father who is now in a wheelchair due an accident on the farm as he still doesn't want to relinquish the full running to Bec.

Another great story from Nicole. I'm really enjoying her writing. The only thing that detracts from this book is the cover. The landscape looks like north western NSW, but the story is set in the Victorian goldfields around Bendigo. And the model on the cover is definitely not Matt...... The cover really should have some relationship to the story and it really irritates me when it doesn't. ...more

Quite a nice story but I found it didn’t have me sitting on the edge of my chair waiting to see what would happen next. Bec & Matt’s relationship is sweet, and it’d be nice to see what’s in store for them next.

Follows a fairly generic romantic formula but with its own unique story line and characters. Was well written and fun to read.

Country Roads is a contemporary romance novel set against a rural Victorian backdrop. It evokes the small, country town feel, where everyone knows everyone else and the rumour mill has a tendency to run rampant.

White Gum Creek is a farming town, recovering in the wake of drought. Farmers are trying to keep their farms afloat in hard times, hoping for the wetter seasons to bring respite. Some of the farmers are holding off on much-needed purchases to upgrade needed farming tools, others are sell

A nice, easy read about leaving your past behind you and allowing yourself the chance to move forward. Everyone can relate to the topics addressed in this novel - betrayal, grief, loss, acceptance, family pressures and of course love. A great book to relax with a glass of something and enjoy.

Nicole Hurley-Moore delivers a gentle romance with Country Roads.

Both lead characters, Bec Duprey and Matt Harvey have difficult pasts particularly when it comes to romance and it's those shared difficulties that both help and hinder their being together.

Hurley-Moore treads carefully yet purposefully around the topics of betrayal and tragedy whilst still creating a passionate and sensual love story.

I found the story simple, meaning nothing much happened so sometimes it was slow and I flicked through a few pages here and there. I'm glad I persisted as the story line was good and Matt and Bec were meant for each other.

A few repetitions and mistakes but otherwise an okay read.
