When Katrina Delaney heard there was a missing boy up in the Snowy Mountains, the tremor she felt brought back the vividness of the dream – the boy in her dream was trapped and frightened…was it the same child? When she was told who the father of the child was; one Jack Fairley – she knew she had to put the grief of the past seven years to one side to help find Jack’s son.

Jack had been riding the silver brumby in the rodeo while six year old Nick had been watching from the sidelines; but when Jack’s event was over, the face he wanted to see wasn’t where it should be. With rising horror, Jack realized Nick was nowhere to be found. Frantic, he called the police – immediately the search commenced on the surrounding land; through the valleys, beside the lake. Jack wouldn’t let his thoughts go there; Nick couldn’t swim…

When Katrina arrived at the homestead, she was nervous about her meeting with Jack. But she was determined to put it aside to help find Nick. Jack’s scepticism was heightened even more when he saw who had turned up to help – he hadn’t seen Katrina for a lot of years and the heartache was still raw. When the flicker of attraction hit them both, they individually realized the spark was still there between them – Katrina refused to go there; find Nick, go back to Sydney and get on with her life – that was her aim. She didn’t trust Jack; and he certainly didn’t trust her…

Would Nick be found safe? What would happen when buried secrets began to surface? And why did Katrina feel a distinct connection to the area she was in?

I thoroughly enjoyed Snowy River Man which is the debut novel for Aussie author Lizzy Chandler. A nice mixture of suspense and romance, with a gritty plot and delightful characters; the word pictures painted of the countryside around the Snowy Mountains, the chill in the air, the blackness of the night sky plus the vividness and brightness of the stars – all was exceptionally well done. I did feel the ending was a little rushed, but I have no hesitation in recommending Snowy River Man highly, and will be looking out for the author’s next title with interest.

With thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my copy to read and review.

Bashayer Al Hakami I couldn't agree more, ending was a little rushed! Ended up surprisingly but I highly recommend this novel.
