Patchwork Family in the Outback by Soraya Lane
I liked Poppy and how she cared about the kids she would teach even before she met them. Poppy Carter is making lots of major changes in her life. She is moving from the city to teaching in the outback as the only teacher. Poppy's life had fallen apart with finding her husband in bed with someone else.
Harrison is a single father with two cute kids. Harrison is bitter with women as his ex-wife left him and his two little kids. Harrison lives on the family ranch that has been in the family for generations. But if they could not hire a teacher than their town would die. He would move so his kids would not have to go to boarding school for elementary school.
He decides he will do anything to help Poppy fit in and feel like she could stay. But he does not plan to date her.
Poppy plans to stay away from all men but then she finds herself making excuses to see Harrison.
Their was one love scene that I skipped over. easy fast read. Gives you a look at life in smalltown in Australia outback. I liked it.
