Review: The House on Burra Burra Lane by Jennie Jones

4 stars

The House on Burra Burra Lane opened quietly, proceeded cautiously, and then had me in laughter and tears. Kind of like the novel’s romantic relationship! I liked how I got to know Sammy and Ethan as slowly as they got to know each other. Their lives unfolded gradually to each other and to the reader.

Sammy buys a house in rural Australia. The local vet helps her make the repairs. After some unique and wonderful turning points — ringing the High Striker bell at the fair, and rescuing a 300-lb pig from a muddy ditch – the two realize they can’t deny their feelings for each other. They meander through misunderstandings, personal baggage and community gossip before landing in the Happily Ever After.

This book is peaceful and light — because of the story and setting but also because of the author’s word choice and writing style. The House On Burra Burra Lane is impressively crafted, something I’ve come to appreciate in the romance genre.
