A Girl's Guide to the Outback by Jessica Kate Reviewed





Title: A Girl's Guide to the Outback
Author: Jessica Kate
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Samuel Payton is a passionate youth pastor in Virginia, but below the surface, he’s still recovering from the blow of a failed business and insecurities he can’t shake. His coworker, start-up expert Kimberly Foster, is brilliant, fearless, and capable, but years of personal rejection have left her defensive and longing for a family. Two people have never been more at odds—or more attracted to one another. And every day at work, the sparks sure do fly.
When Kimberly’s ambitious plans for Sam’s ministry butt up against his risk-averse nature, Sam decides that obligations to family trump his work for the church. He quits the ministry and heads home to Australia to help his sister, Jules, save her struggling farm. As Kimberly’s grand plans flounder, she is forced to face the truth: that no one can replace Sam. Together they strike up a deal: If Kimberly comes to work on Jules’s dairy farm and lends her business brains to their endeavor, then maybe—just maybe—Sam will reconsider his future with the church.
As Kimberly tries her hand at Australian farm life, she learns more about herself than she could’ve ever expected. Meanwhile Sam is forced to re-evaluate this spunky woman he thought he already knew. As foes slowly morph into friends, they wonder if they might be something even more. But when disaster strikes the farm, will Sam find it within himself to take a risk that could lead to love? And will Kimberly trust God with her future?

My Thoughts:

Jessica Kate's sophomore novel is so fun and the setting is absolutely perfect! I loved Love and Other Mistakes so I was pleasantly surprised when secondary character's Kim and Sam made their appearance in this novel.

This book was full of lots of misadventures, laughter, and fun witty banter between Sam and Kim. However, the book isn't just fun and adventure. Jules, Kim, and Sam are all hurting. They are also unsure of where they fit and what they should do even though it's staring them right in the face.

As with Love and Other Mistakes I was drawn in immediately by the characters and I didn't want the adventure to end. The Australian Outback made me want to move going to Australia up on my bucket list.
