Peppercorn House

Nicole Hurley-Moore

Love is the last thing on Jasmine Clarke's mind when she arrives in Kangaroo Ridge with a broken heart. But then she meets Felix Carrington.

Felix helps run his family's wedding venue business at Carrington Farm. His real passion, though, is taking glorious shots of the local region.

And it's through an unlikely friendship with 84-year-old Winnifred Knightly that Felix is able to take frequent photos at his favourite place, Peppercorn House, with all its faded grandeur and mysterious history.

Winnifred still grieves over the losses of her childhood but in her long life she's learned to be grateful for the present. She believes herself to be an excellent matchmaker and plots to bring her 'adopted grandson' Felix and Jasmine, her favourite aged-care worker, together as her final project.

But buried secrets and unhealed family scars threaten Winnifred's plans - as Felix and Jasmine must soon come to understand.

Praise for Nicole Hurley-Moore:

'heartwarming and emotional, with plenty of romance, but also family dynamics, and decision making at pivotal points in their lives.' Beuaty and Lace on Summer at Kangaroo Ridge

'... a wonderful, rich tale confronting the devastation of tragedy, the very real desire to discover the truth and the healing power of love to be able to accept the past and begin to build a new future... heart-warming, captivating and absolutely perfect for a cold, wet, winters day snuggled up in front of the fire.' Blue Wolf Reviews on The McCalister Legacy

'Nicole Hurley-Moore's work captures the essence of times past, futures yet to be discovered and fresh beginnings, all with a hope and knowledge based in love and understanding.' Blue Wolf Reviews on Lawson's Bend
