Book 2 title reveal!

Romantic comedy 'A Girl's Guide to the Outback' by Australian inspirational author Jessica Kate

Here’s a peek at the still-unofficial blurb:

Kimberly Foster needs help from the last man in the world who would give it.

 She and Samuel Payton fought so much during their three-year stint as colleagues that they now reside in different halves of the globe. She’s still the business director of the Virginia-based youth ministry that Sam founded, while he’s back at his family’s farm in rural Australia.

 But Kimberly can’t find a suitable replacement for Sam, and the ministry is in trouble. She needs him back. What she doesn’t know is that the Payton farm’s finances are scarier than statistics on Australian spider bites.

 She and Sam strike a deal: if she can use her business savvy to save the farm, he’ll return to Virginia and recruit and train his replacement.

 Soon Kimberly’s on the edge of the Outback, working more closely with Sam than ever before. Can she protect his family’s legacy, the ministry, and her heart?


Can’t wait to share this book with everyone! It comes out only six months after Love and Other Mistakes, in January 2020.

It’s been so much fun getting to mix it up with an American heroine and Aussie hero!

It also gives my publisher and bookstores an indication on how many people are excited about this book.
