A traumatic past, a charismatic stranger and a family legacy … Golden’s quiet country life is about to get messy …

When the diminutive but fiery Golden Saunders falls from her horse and smashes her leg irreparably, and her racing family is disgraced by a corruption scandal, she thinks she’s hit rock bottom.

Then the enigmatic Tor Amundsen, United Nations diplomat (read: spy), arrives on the scene and proves her wrong. His investigation into her family pulls her back into a world she had escaped, and the branch of the family she has tried to avoid at all costs. Tor is infuriated and frustrated by the impossible mixture of fragility and fierceness that is Golden, true, but he is also strangely protective of her.

Golden wants no part of it. Men have pushed her around her whole life. The last thing she needs is an arrogant, irritatingly handsome man telling her what to do. But it turns out Tor has a way with animals, children and, well, Golden…

Before too long, she finds their overwhelming attraction is overriding her good sense, and as they are both pulled deeper into the murky world of dirty money, things are about to get messy, and Golden’s small, quietly ordered life will change beyond recognition…

Can Golden overcome her fears and the shadows of the past and reach for a new kind of future? Will she ever be able to get her life back on the right track?

About the Author

Penelope Janu writes romances about clever and adventurous women who don't mean to fall in love, but do. She sees the humour in developing relationships and human interactions, even when it might not be obvious to her characters. Penelope's novels, whether coastal or rural, celebrate Australian communities. Penelope is a lawyer with an interest in social justice issues and the environment. She, like her characters, is up for any adventure, even though she has a terrible sense of direction. She has six children, big dogs, a distracting husband and never enough time to write. She hopes readers will fall as passionately in love with her heroines and heroes as she invariably does.

A great sophomore effort from Penelope Janu


On The Right Track is an entertaining cocktail of chemistry, mystery, humour, compassion and romance with a shot of children and animals to top it off. There is more than a dash of spice but it wasn't graphically detailed or gratuitous. Golden has been hurt before and the injuries to her leg make many activities difficult and painful for her, it was relevant to the story for some scenes to be included that could have just faded to black and happened off the page. I loved everything about this book. The interactions between Tor and Golden were fabulous, they ran the entire range of emotions and you saw the inner turmoil they faced as the characteristics that frustrated them should have been enough to turn them off but weren't. You saw the scars they carried that meant they didn't form attachments and you wondered how it would all turn out. I would unreservedly recommend this one. Thank you to Harlequin for supplying my copy for review, and copies for the book club members.



Penelope has hit the right track!!!


If you are a horse lover you will love this book. Jut if you are not, don't worry there is still enough going on in the story that you are going to totally enjoy it. This was an entertaining plot with some great characters. Golden, Tor and Nate bring this story to life. The family secrets and the mysteries behind the secrets, will have you hooked. The chemistry between the Golden and Tor is electrifying. Golden is a stubborn and won't let anything stop her from doing what she wants. Tor is a United Nations diplomat who is an arrogant, but he eventually rubs off on you. Nate is the one you will like right from the beginning I titled him 'Mr Good Guy', he was who you would want beside you at all times. Can Golden Saunders get her life back on the right track? The only way you are going to find out is to read her story for yourself. Penelope has written an enjoyable read that will have you intrigued and laughing throughout the book. I am looking forward to reading more from this Author. She hit the right track with me!!! I would recommend this book.
