Loretta Hill's bestselling debut is a delectable novel of red dust and romance, and of dreams discovered in the unlikeliest of places ...

‘Let me burst your city bubble for you. This is the Pilbara. And it’s the Pilbara that makes the rules’

Lena Todd is a city girl who thrives on cocktails and cappuccinos. So when her boss announces he’s sending her to the outback to join a construction team, her world is turned upside down.

Lena’s new accommodation will be an aluminium box called a dongar.

Her new social network: three hundred and fifty men.

Her daily foot attire: steel-capped boots.

Unfortunately, Lena can’t refuse. Mistakes of the past are choking her confidence. She needs to do something to right those wrongs and prove herself. Going into a remote community might just be the place to do that, if only tall, dark and obnoxious Dan didn’t seem so determined to stand in her way ...

About The Author

For her bestselling novels The Girl in Steel-Capped Boots and The Girl in the Hard Hat Loretta Hill drew upon her own outback engineering experiences of larrikins, red dust and steel-capped boots. Her new novel, The Girl in the Yellow Vest , will publish in January 2014. She is also the author of the ebook novella One Little White Lie , which was a no.1 bestseller on iTunes.

Loretta always wanted to be a writer. As a kid she filled pages of exercise books with stories to amuse her friends. Her father, who never wasted his time on fiction, didn't see much worth in this pass time and pushed her to pursue a 'sensible' career. Fortunately, she had inherited some of his talent for numbers and decided to give it a go. She graduated from the University of Western Australia as structural engineer and took her first job with a major West Australian engineering company.

A few years later she met a lawyer at a Black Friday party hosted by a friend. She was dressed as the devil and he just came as himself. They are now happily married and living in Perth with their two young sons and infant daughter.

Despite her career in engineering, her interest in law and her journey into motherhood, Loretta continued to write. Not because she had a lot of time but because it was and always had been an addiction she couldn't ignore.

Finally A Strong Girl Character

5

I loved this book - and read it in one night. Its a great story about a strong woman in a man's world. Lena takes a job in the Pilbara (Western Australia) and tries to prove she is up to the job. But with the obnoxious but handsome Dan trying to stand in her way will she succeed? Loretta knows her stuff - she is a qualified structural engineer - but I'm very glad she found time to write such a great story.

dont judge a book by its cover

3

the book delivers with city girl going to outback and obstacles that she overcomes along the way. the plot gets lost halfway through, but thankfully rebounds with a predictable conclusion.
