    I enjoyed reading A Girl's Guide to the Outback by Jessica Kate. Between the vivid descriptions and the authentic Australian words, it felt like I was in Australia -- the absolutely charming setting for this enemies-to-friends novel!

    A Girl's Guide to the Outback entertained and held my attention throughout. This well-written novel satisfied my romance expectations while diving deep into the hearts of Sam and Kimberly as they worked through the hard issues holding them back in life. True-to-life, the characters struggle as they deal with their insecurities, fears, and unhealthy patterns. Their struggles felt authentic and I was rooting for both of them to overcome.

    I recommend A Girl's Guide to the Outback by Jessica Kate to readers who enjoy inspirational contemporary romances. I would not consider it a romcom (romantic comedy), though it did make me laugh occasionally and has a super-cute cover. As a bonus, there are two love stories happening in this novel and I enjoyed them both.

    This book grabbed my attention from the very beginning and entertained and delighted to the very end. There was beautifully descriptive, poetic writing and a perfect mix of drama, brevity and inspiration. I liked how it incorporated Aussie terminology and slang without it being over-the-top or confusing and it was fun experiencing farm life in the Australian outback.

    Kimberly is feisty and determined but also desperate to belong. Meanwhile Sam is affable and laid-back yet cautious and dealing with his own past regrets. I loved watching these two spar and then eventually come together to overcome the obstacles before them. Furthermore the side characters were great and they added depth and humour to the story.

    Overall a fabulous read and I can't wait to read more by this talented author!

    I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review. All opinions expressed are solely my own.

    You'd find two love stories in this book. Love stories between two different set of people but above all between the individuals and God.

    There is a lesson in this book for everyone. This book is filled with sweet humor, breathtaking chemistry, grit, fearlessness, loyalty, trust in God...

    First of, we meet the fiery, fearless Kim and the sweet, scared Sam. Their's was a roller coaster of insecurities, unrequited admiration and respect and a lot of self discoveries. I've never seen a book deal with deeply buried insecurities like this book.

    Sam carried his insecurities like a signpost on his forehead, Kimberly had been wounded by those who should have loved her and that made her somewhat fearless and archenemies with Sam for a long time. I loved reading about their individual and collective journeys to letting go and moving on with God's purpose for their lives. It was so sweet how they complemented each other. A lot of hurt and words flew around but the important lesson here was when God is involved nothing stops Him.

    Their story will inspire you to make changes you've been afraid and reluctant to.

    Then we meet Mick and Jules. Jules is Sam's sister and in charge of their family farm in Australia that has been in the family for four generations. She allowed her place in the farm to define and cage her. Mick was frustrated with Jules because of their past. Jules had life changing decisions to make if only she could trust God and learn that she wasn't defined by what she did but by Whose she is.

    There is something for everyone in this book. No review would do it justice. You just have to read the book yourself.

    I received a copy of this book from Netgalley and this is my honest opinion.
