The Long Paddock Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
A captivating love story about community and second chances by best-selling author Alissa Callen.
Country-girl Cressida Knight fills her days with her farm, a mischievous pet bull called Reggie and her volunteer emergency services work. The busier she keeps, the less she thinks about the cowboy who left her behind. She's convinced the small-town Woodlea grapevine that she's moved on, but now it's time to move on for real. Champion bull rider Denham Rigby shares Cressy's deep love for the land, and all he's ever wanted was to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Cressy through life. But three years ago a dark family secret left him no choice but to run.
Now family duty gives him no choice but to return to the bush. What Denham hasn't come home to do is to hurt Cressy by rekindling their relationship. He's nothing but a liability, and the beautiful, self-reliant cowgirl has to stay off-limits. But when faced with Cressy's desperation to save her drought-stricken farm, he can't keep his distance. He joins her out droving on the long paddock. Then when Woodlea is hit by more than just rodeo fever, they are further thrown together and Denham loses the battle to lock down his emotions. But has he left it too late to stop running? And will the woman he's always loved be prepared to risk her heart for a second time?

The scene for this tale is set beautifully with the Aussie outback, even with its worst, being drought.
A bit of Aussie humour with the knitters & the friendly cantankerous bull but also focus on something quite upsetting with our male farmers.
A genuine Aussie tale one that would appeal to many.
Cressy is exactly the sort of female character I like to see, she runs a farm on her own, and volunteers with a rural rescue service as well. Like me she likes to rescue animals too.
I have read a number of cowboy stories set in America, but this was the first one I have read set in Australia, and being from New Zealand it was good to read something from my part of the world.
I loved seeing Kelpies in the book, I own a rescue Kelpie, and they are smart, loyal and affectionate, but also have a mind of their own just like Tippy in the book.
The story telling was vivid, I could almost smell the steak and onions in the fair scene.
The story deals with some serious issues around mental health, and I believe it is important for these issues to be brought up, in New Zealand the rates of suicide are much higher in rural areas, it needs to be talked about.
I will be reading more of this author.
