The Rivertown Vet by Jennifer Scoullar

The Rivertown Vet  by Jennifer Scoullar

Sometimes you have to face your past to fight for your future.


From one of Australia's favourite romance writers, Jennifer Scoullar, bestselling author of The Mallee Girl and Brumby's Run, comes The Rivertown Vet – heartfelt and charming novel about the importance of community and the power of kindness.


Brimming with the author's intimate knowledge of both native Australian wildlife, from Tasmanian devils to shingleback lizards, and exotic animals, from sun bears to big cats, Jennifer's latest novel is not only a love story but a story of conservation.


Set in the gorgeous river country of South Australia, The Rivertown Vet follows Jana Malinski, a local vet who runs a wombat sanctuary with her sister.  Struggling to keep the sanctuary on her family's serene property by the Murray River afloat, the last thing Jana expects is the man who broke her heart in high school to turn up with his young daughter and an injured baby wombat in tow.


Soon, the once careless teenager, now handsome accountant and single dad Mark, makes her an offer she can't refuse: the opportunity to run Wildfell Park, the town zoo.  Jana is the only person who can help restore the park to its former glory and with her own family's sanctuary included in Mark's plans, she makes the decision to put the past behind her.  But working alongside Mark every day isn't easy, especially given the undeniable attraction between them.  While she flights her feelings and tensions continue to rise both inside and outside the park, a new danger emerges – one that could threaten the very existence of Wildfell Park and Jana's dreams of an ideal future.


The Rivertown Vet is a heart-warming story of how sometimes you must overcome the things that hold you back and forgive those that have hurt you in the past to continue moving forward and give yourself the best chance at finding love.
