Herding cattle and drinking Australian beer aren’t pastimes that particularly appeal to an ‘indoor girl’ like Clara, but she’d be damned if she’d let her cheating ex-boyfriend have the vacation they were meant to share. So, to salvage some piece of her self-respect after a bad break-up, she finds herself riding a horse along the Oodnadatta Track for five days.
When Clara arrives, she can’t help but feel an intense attraction to Evelyn, the drover who guides their group through the immensely unique landscape between Coober Pedy and the Anna Creek Station. Clara’s never been one for a no-strings-attached fling, but cowgirl Evie becomes increasingly difficult to resist.
In combination with the exquisite outback, soulful horses, and overly cheerful tourists, Evie may just be exactly what Clara needs to escape her own pessimism.
I found myself unsure what I would think about Riding The Track. What a pleasant surprise it was!
When Clara discovers that her boyfriend has been cheating on her, she dumps him and then goes on the vacation that they had planned. This is how she finds herself on a 5 day horseback riding trip across the Australian Outback. Clara finds herself instantly attracted to the pretty drover, Evelyn, who is leading them during their trip. Clara has never wanted to just hookup before, preferring relationships instead. But, she finds herself unable to resist Evie.
I actually really enjoyed this novella. Personally, having lived in Australia for a short time, I try to read stories that take place there whenever I can. In Riding the Track, I find myself back there and it's a wonderful adventure.
I also liked Riding the Track because it is a good story. I like how all of the guests change a little during their ride. And I like that Clara was able to let loose and enjoy her limited time with Evie.
