Happy new book release to author Jennie Jones!
A Place To Stay was a story that had all the elements of another great series by author Jennie Jones, from the characters, to the setting to the animated townsfolk having many shining moments. A story that had its share of dramatic scenes and sizzling elements between characters and a series opener that held its own. This read depicted some dramatic moments with likeable, attention grabbing characters, including the secondary roles/personas. The story started well enough with only a couple of flat moments throughout the read, but the the finale more than satisfied. Many of the characters were scene stealers for all the right reasons and left this reader waiting with anticipation for the next instalment in the series. A Place To Stay was a good starting story in the Rangelands Series from author Jennie Jones.

About A Place To Stay by Jennie Jones
A new outback home where she can become someone new—and maybe find a forever love?
Rachel Meade is a woman with a past she wants to escape from. Finding herself in Mt
Maria, a remote outback town in Western Australia, she thinks she’s found a place to stay.
Before she knows it, Rachel is corralled into helping with the Tidy Town competition by the Dramatic Society widows who have a tendency to gossip and take charge. It’s not in her plan, but she finds herself allowing friendships to develop. She’s even more surprised by her growing attraction to the town’s engaging senior police officer.
Ex-detective Senior Sergeant Luke Weston knows anything and everything happens in the country, and he’s seen it all—stolen chickens, pub fights and alleged cheating for the Tidy Town competition are only some of puzzles Mt Maria offers Luke. He’s been playing for Rachel, thinking maybe she’s the one. Then he gets news that the Crime Squad are looking for her, and he’s ordered to get close and stay close. Is Rachael in trouble, or is she the trouble?
Luke is fighting his attraction to a woman he might have to take into custody, and it looks like he’s going to be arresting more than one person before the end of the week. Luke needs to restore peace in his corner of the outback, but he knows he’s not going to get out of this without getting his heart busted.
With her past catching up with her, Rachael has to decide whether it’s time to cut and run again, or whether this time she’s found the person—and the place—to finally heal her heart.
