Book Review: The Crossroads By Pamela Cross

This is a book review of The Crossroads by Pamela Cook that was published by Hatchette Australia on 29 November 2016.

Pamela Cook lives in NSW and writes Australian fiction with a country heart and published her first book in 2012 - this is her fourth book. When Pamela is not writing she spends as much time as possible riding her handsome quarter horses Morocco and Rio, trying to get through her reading pile and attempting to perfect her yoga poses.

This is a story set in the small outback town of Birralong in Queensland and there's three feisty women who tell the story - Rose the mother who runs the old local pub and is struggling to keep it maintained, her daughter Stephanie who lives on a local farm and is dealing with drought and the distress this brings to her family and lastly Faith who discovers Rose is her birth mother and travels from Sydney to the outback town to meet her.

The main characters are all well defined, likable and I warmed to them straight away. The rest of the characters from the regular 'bar flies' to the town gossip are exactly who you would find in a small country town and added a lot of charm and entertainment to the story.

This is your traditional outback rural story and romance, it was a sweet story, although it moved a little too slow for me until the last few chapters when all the family dramas seemed to come to a mad rush at the end.

Overall this was an enjoyable read and if you're looking for a little bit of cringe-worthy (in a good way) romance in a beautiful Australian setting then this book is for you.

I recommend this book to rural romance fans.

I give this book 3 stars out of  5

Jarrah Jungle's Star Rating:
1 Bad - I'd rather eat brussel sprouts topped with anchovies than read this again
2 Not Good - I'd rather watch paint dry than read this again
3 Ok - I'm sitting on the fence - its not great but not terrible either
4 Good - I'd give up a bottle of the worlds best champagne for this read
