Publisher's Summary

Jack Willis seems like any ordinary outback trucker - but in secret he's a romance novelist. And he's about to become very successful. But real men don't write romance novels, and so Jack's been writing under the name of his friend, Ruby Vale. The only problem is, Ruby doesn't know. When glamorous publisher Ziggy Keane arrives to do business with 'Ruby Vale', Jack must do some fancy footwork in order to keep his writing career afloat. Jack hatches a scheme, but will he be able to get Ruby to go along with it? What about her plans to marry the local vet? And, more importantly, what about Jack's growing attraction to Ziggy? In this entertaining comedy of errors, does Jack have what it takes to be a true romantic hero?

Digging in downunder

After seeing the film on which the book was based I had expected to enjoy this reading. But Humphrey Bower nailed it. Accents aren't always an easy go for
listeners even when they are face to face. Bower manages to being the characters to life and you don't need to have a single line repeated. A fun love story within in a story of an unlikely writer and two friends that took a lot of time coming to admit they care. The wry sense of humor which creeps in unexpectedly is the cream in the cake.
