A Girl's Guide to the OutbackHow far will a girl go to win back a guy she can’t stand? This funny, sweet, and romantic story proves that opposites do attract—and that God has a sense of humor.
 Samuel Payton is a passionate youth pastor in Virginia, but below the surface, he’s still recovering from the blow of a failed business and insecurities he can’t shake. His coworker, start-up expert Kimberly Foster, is brilliant, fearless, and capable, but years of personal rejection have left her defensive and longing for a family. Two people have never been more at odds—or more attracted to one another. And every day at work, the sparks sure do fly.
 When Kimberly’s ambitious plans for Sam’s ministry butt up against his risk-averse nature, Sam decides that obligations to family trump his work for the church. He quits the ministry and heads home to Australia to help his sister, Jules, save her struggling farm. As Kimberly’s grand plans flounder, she is forced to face the truth: that no one can replace Sam. Together they strike up a deal: If Kimberly comes to work on Jules’s dairy farm and lends her business brains to their endeavor, then maybe—just maybe—Sam will reconsider his future with the church.
 As Kimberly tries her hand at Australian farm life, she learns more about herself than she could’ve ever expected. Meanwhile Sam is forced to re-evaluate this spunky woman he thought he already knew. As foes slowly morph into friends, they wonder if they might be something even more. But when disaster strikes the farm, will Sam find it within himself to take a risk that could lead to love? And will Kimberly trust God with her future?

If you have read "Love and Other Mistakes" by Jessica Kate, you will enjoy reading about Kimberly and Sam. If you haven't read it, you will still enjoy reading ""A Girl’s Guide to the Outback.

Sam and Kim's working relationship was not a friendly one because they both were trying to please others and didn't understand 
each other.  It wasn't till they were on Sam's family farm in Australia when they began to understand each other.

I like that koalas are mentioned in this story, because I used to collect stuffed fuzzy koala bears and figurines when I was younger.  I even liked learning facts about the expressions that are used there. One thing I didn't like is the snakes, not that the book had them in the story, but I don't like snakes at all in any form, not even at the zoo. But, then that is one of the things that makes this book "real". We all know fiction is real sometimes.

This is a story with two romances, Sam's and Kim's and Sam's sister and Mick. There is also faith elements throughout the pages.This story will make you laugh and cry. 

I think this book would make a great movie. I kept thinking thinking of "Crocodile Dundee" in a way except this was on a farm and was about broken people.

I received a complimentary copy by the author and Celebrate Lit. These opinions are my own own.
