    1. *mrsbbookreviews.wordpressWhile I sit patiently waiting for the release of Rachael Johns latest women’s fiction/life lit title The Greatest Gift to be released, I realised I had neglected to post my glowing review of John’s most recent winning title, Talk of the Town. I guarantee this book will warm your heart. Talk of the Town is an endearing rural fiction title, from one of my favourite Australian storytellers and it received a full five-star rating from this reader!Lawson Cooper-Jones is [...]


    2. Meg had only been in Rose Hill in country Western Australia for a few days but already she could feel a sense of peace wash over her. Her departure from Melbourne had been the right one for her – the discovery of the deserted old town with the dilapidated general store - well past its prime - that was for sale gave Meg the feeling it was all meant to be. Her desire to be alone; to come in contact with no one, would be well suited to Rose Hill. But when Meg heard a car stop outside and voices q [...]


    3. Talk Of The Town is about Meg and Lawson who thought they would never find friendship and love after tragedy hit them both. Meg McCormick decided that her life needed to change so she brought old shop in a small rural town called Rose Hill, and she thought had no other residents. However, this was not the case. Lawson Cooper-Jones was a dairy farmer who lives near Rose Hill with his son Ned. Meg and Lawson collided when unexpectedly Lawson car broke down near Meg's Shop. The readers of Talk Of T [...]


    4. Well, it looks like I’m the first one to review this novel on . Oh, the pressure Occasionally, I indulge in romance novels. Country romance is not necessarily a favourite subgenre, but knowing that this was Rachael Johns’ tenth full-length novel, and given that it was available on NetGalley, I decided to give it a go.Talk of the Town is set in Walsh, a small town in Western Australia. It’s always nice to read a novel set somewhere familiar (relatively speaking).Twenty-five-year-old Megan M [...]


    5. 4.5 stars. Talk of the Town was a book that drew me in right from the beginning and kept me engaged all the way through. There wasn't big drama or lots of action, but relationships that mattered and caught at my heart.Would you buy a house in the middle of a town where people no longer lived, except for someone called Crazy Archie? Live in an old house that was once a country store. Well you wouldn't find me doing it, however that's what Meg does, and there is an air of mystery about her that ma [...]


    6. Talk of the Town is a heartwarming romance set in a small town. Rachael Johns sensitively deals with complex issues of illness, life, death and the impact of economic change on agricultural-based communities, the effects of which are magnified within a small community. Hero Lawson Cooper-Jones is a single dad who is focused only on his dairy farm, his sister Tabitha and his eight-year-old son Ned. Heroine Megan McCormick is on the run from her past, looking for a fresh start. Lawson is everythin [...]


    7. I received this book as an Advance readers copy from Netgalley, I love how Rachael Johns has weaved the story of both Megan and Lawson. Both had come out of difficult life situations in their personal lives. Very well written by Rachael and can't wait for follow up stories involving Tab and Ethan. Oh and a warning, you will need tissues by the end of the book.


    8. TALK OF THE TOWN is a Rural Romance, a genre that is a firm favourite of mine. Author Rachael Johns is also a firm favourite of mine – she belongs to an elite group of authors that I call my ‘Grocery List’ Authors – Love their stuff so much that if they published their grocery list I would read it! Meg has a past – a past that she wants to stay hidden. In her mind the best way to do that is hide away in an old General Store in a small ghost town near a rural community and keep to herse [...]


    9. I haven't read a book for a long time that made me stay up late to finish and bought a tear to the eye but this did both. A lovely story.


    10. Author Rachael Johns captured this readers attention again, with another heart warming, small town rural romance read. Talk Of The Town was a story full of likeable characters, challenging events and unforgettable moments, that was a breath of fresh air. Told from the perspective of both Meg and Lawson, and from the start, was a page turner. Review copy received from Harlequin Australia via Netgalley


    11. Talk of the Town opens with the mysterious Meg being interrupted from her self-imposed banishment to the ghost-town of Rose Hill by Lawson Cooper-Jones and his young son, Ned. From the outset you see Meg struggle with the desire for company and companionship, her almost crippling anxiety about being ‘found out’, and her belief that she deserves to be alone and lonely as penance for her past. Of course all of this adds to the secretive and intriguing nature of Meg and the story overall but al [...]




    12. Gosh, where to start with this one?! May as well start with the good I love the characters in this book. As someone who lives in rural Aus (and at one time in a town with a lot of similarities to Rose Hill), I found Rachael Johns captures the quirk of country living perfectly. It was such an easy book to be captivated by, and as such one that was thoroughly enjoyed. I found the supporting characters, Archie and Tab, every bit as intriguing as the main characters. They really captured so many el [...]


    13. Another book by Racheal Johns that I couldn't put down! Talk of the Town is a great tale of learning about who you can trust and to trust your instincts. Meg is a great character who learns all about these things after having a bad past, most of all she learns to trust herself again. Lawson is such a caring forgiving man who has gone through his own tragedy too, he also finds out about himself along with his son Ned who is just adorable. This book shows you that if you want to move on from a bad [...]


    14. LOVED LOVED LOVED!! OMG! it's emotional in some parts!!! I was a blubbering mess on the bus and train to and from work in some parts!! It flowed very nicely, the build up was great, and man, some of the things that happened to Meg! GEEZ!! But it was so good! I loved it!!



    15. Rachael Johns’ novels are always awesome reads for me. I love how she makes her writing sparkle off the pages, combining heartbreak with wit, happiness and love. I always learn something new from her books, whether it be the life of a dairy farmer or how to knit one handed. If you’re not reading her already, you should be – there is something for everyone in her writing!Talk of the Town is rural fiction/romance, moving away from her previous setting of Midwest Western Australia in the Outb [...]


    16. 4.5 *‘Oh!’ The woman’s face exploded in recognition and her smile grew. ‘I’ve heard about you. You’re the talk of the town.’If you have loved Rachael’s books in the past, and her focus on writing about small town rural romances, then you are on another winner here. I do enjoy the Aussie settings and especially the focus on this Western Australian agricultural community. Rachael is adept at making the characters come to life as you get to know them really well. Then, of course, th [...]


    17. I read this book in paperback with compliments from the Beauty and Lace Book club where I originally wrote this review.This is the first time I have read a 'romance' novel in a very long time, and a definite first in 'rural romance'. I always find that romance novels are very preditable. You know that straight away when you pick up the book that the first chapter involves a young woman, usually with a troubled and challenging past, who meets a man, perhaps with challenges of his own, and ending [...]


    18. MS Johns has written another fabulous story that will stay with me for a long time to come, she has bought the characters to life on the pages made me fit into this country community and feel the emotions that they all go through. This story has a little bit of everything in it a mystery from years ago and tragedy and hurt as well as a very sensual romance between two people who have both been through so much.A flat tyre and maybe fate has bought Lawson Cooper-Jones and his eight year old son Ne [...]


    19. I thought Talk of the Town was very well written by Rachel Johns. She seems to never to disappoint her readers as I have yet not to like a book she has written so far. I would highly recommend it for anyone to read who likes to read rural romances. This one is set in Perth. Lawson Copper Jones a single father to 8 years old boy called Ned and is a dairy farmer the live in the town called Walsh. One day when driving through nearby deserted town of Rose Hill he gets a flat tyre in front of the the [...]


    20. Talk Of The Town by Rachael Johns is an interesting read.Lawson Cooper-Jones is a Dairy Farmer, Widower and a Single Father.Local woman Adeline Walsh has set her sights on Lawson but his heart is still with his departed wife.Close by the town of Walsh where Lawson lives is the derelict town of Rose Hill.Another small town that has become obselite as the Main Highway bypasses it.Lawson and his son Ned have a flat tyre while passing through Rose Hill.They meet a mysterious woman named Meg who has [...]


    21. Another winner from Rachael Johns!A woman keen to start her life anew. A single father running his dairy farm. A haunted house that brings the two together with an old mystery. Seriously, there is nothing to fault in this book. Great characters. Captivating storyline. Easy to read. She completely captures the spirit of an Australian country town, and it is comforting and familiar to read.


    22. Worth waiting for! A heartbreaker of a solo dad living with the memories of his late wife. A local girl prepared to do anything to snag the man. A young woman living alone in a ghost town, a town and woman with a past that could upset others. A story of courage, taking risks, trusting in the power of forgiveness before one can move forward.


    23. I loved it. Rachael is a star at writing small town, rural romances. This one is no exception. I love the Aussie setting and the way the characters come to life. I love a slow burn romance with plenty of twists and turns to keep things interesting. Love - I seem to be using that word a lotI was emotionally engaged the whole way through. Lots of smiles and maybe a couple of tears.


    24. I liked the kid Ned, the sister with a disability, Tabitha and the dogs best. The MCʻs were decent and believable. The crazy moll nemesis was a crazy moll. Hot farmer, his sister, his son and the female MC were all trauma survivors with different ways of dealing & coping


    25. This book is the best yet written by Rachael Johns. That is a huge statement when I have enjoyed all of her books so much. The characters had so much depth to them and the storyline was jam-packed with action. I couldn't put the book down until I had finished it.


    26. Rachel Johns has woven a wonderful tale of new beginnings, second chances, a little mystery and some very inventive ice cream flavours in Talk of the Town. A most enjoyable read of country life, and all the quirks it entails, note: have the tissues handy.
