Opening up an Alissa Callen book is like walking into a happy home filled with family and friends, always a warm welcome with characters that are real and true, I loved being back in Woodlea and journeying with Ella Quinlivan and Saul Armstrong as they find their way to true love and happiness.

Ella is the local vet and has made her home in the country town of Woodlea she has many friends whom we have seen find love, but that is not what Ella is looking for she has too many scars from the past,

The Boundary Fence is the first book I've read by Alissa Callen. It was an incredibly charming story and I feel can read as a standalone, despite being book 7 in the Woodlea series, with little to no confusion for the reader. The story is described as being 'warm-hearted and touching' and by the end, the books gives you all the warm feelings of comfort, family and being home. I'll admit it did take me a little while to work out who each of the characters were since I haven't read the previous ...more

Country vet Ella is happy in the quiet little town of Woodlea. Even the town matchmaker knows to keep her nose out of Ella’s business. Her distracting new neighbour is making her rethink all her dearly-held beliefs about being happier single, though. Except Saul obviously has his own demons in the past.

This is a story about two people overcoming their own personal demons individually and together. Both Ella and Saul have difficult pasts, though I did think they were a little overblown in both

The Boundary Fence is one of several books set in the fictional outback NSW town of Woodlea, but fear not. If this is your first Alissa Callen book it won’t in any way spoil your enjoyment of others she has set in this location.
If you love reading about country Australia and its people then you’ll feel right at home in this book.
Woodlea is the quintessential country town complete with people who truly care about each other and for whom it’s never too much trouble to drop everything and lend a

I found this a very sweet Australian country tale.

Ella is a vet at Woodlea. Saul is her neighbour and he has bison. Their paths cross often because they live in a small town but both of them have been hurt and both of them are guarding their hearts.

The book, the first one in the series I have read, reads quite well as a standalone (although I couldn't figure out why Ella would want to visit the UK, after what happened there). Other than that, the story makes sense. I am sure that if I had read

A light hearted Australian Outback romance and current event story telling in the little town of Woodlea that I have come to know though Alissa's previous books, although I think I have missed one in the middle. I do love to read Australiana books and this one is no exception. The two main characters in this book Ella and Saul, with their past demons and nuances to overcome seem like a fitting pair for a love affair. Doesn't hurt that they live on neighbouring properties. There were parts where ...more

Another great novel in the Woodlea series. I was so glad when Ella's story was finally told after waiting patiently (maybe not so patiently) to see why she was so guarded throughout the series. I really loved the chemistry between Saul and Ella and also the sideline characters who I have come to love. I did feel at times the Ella storyline seemed to drag a little with her indecision but in the end I still loved this book and will happily read it again. I really hope this isn't the end of the ...more
