A new book

Emerald Springs by Fleur McDonald


It’s been so long since I’ve written here, I’ve almost forgotten what I have to do!

I guess I should apologise. My life has been tipped upside down in the last six months and both the kids and I have had some huge adjustments to make.

We plan on making 2015 the best year yet and to start it off, I have a new book coming out.

Emerald Springs is my 6th novel – I can’t actually believe I’m back at the stage of having another book going to print and about to be released.

The blurb for Emerald Springs goes like this:

When suspicions are wrongly aimed at Amelia following the theft of proceeds from the local rodeo after a crash and grab, she must work with a sceptical rural detective to clear her name – and that of the man she loves. Mystery and romance abound in the new novel from the bestselling author of Crimson Dawn.

After finishing university, Amelia Bennett returns to her home town. Determined to lose her old reputation for being scatty, she works hard to prove herself as the treasurer of the local rodeo committee.

Flushed with triumph on the evening of the best rodeo in the town’s history, Amelia is driving the bags of cash into town when she becomes the victim of a terrifying smash and grab. Injured and distraught after her ordeal, she’s even more devastated when she finds out that she and her boyfriend Paul are the objects of suspicion.

To prove her innocence and that of the man she loves, Amelia must convince a sceptical detective that her account of what happened does add up and that he must help her track down the real culprits . . .

With its cracker plot, feisty heroine and engaging love story, Emerald Springs will have you reading well into the night.

  1. Hi, I have really missed your blogs, especially about your family and farm in the beautiful Esperance area. I hope you are all well and look forward to reading more blogs when you get the time, which l don’t know where from, as you have such a busy life!

  2. Hi Fleur,
    Have just finished reading Emerald Springs – loved the story, loved the characters. So engrossed in the story, I worried for hours that the stud tattoos wouldn’t be readable and all the EBVs would be lost..LOL
    Thanks for a great read.
