Join Glenelg Libraries favourite Maya Linnell as she launches her newest novel Kookaburra Cottage, the start of a new chapter of delightful, warm and captivating rural romance novels.

April Lacey is determined to lead her family's Limestone Coast winery into the future, but soon discovers the crumbling historic building and her father's reluctance to join the food tourism revolution are just the beginning of her uphill battle.

English winemaker Connor Jamison has travelled to South Australia's iconic wine region to learn from the experts and carve a name for himself in the industry. However, it quickly becomes clear that Connor's past continues to nip at his heels.

United by food, music and an unexpected involvement in the Penwarra Country Show, April and Connor seem like the perfect match, but with old flames, new challenges and careers conspiring to keep them apart, can this pair forge their own path together?

Maya Linnell grew up in a small country town, climbing towering gum trees and reading her way through her family's bookshelves before discovering a never-ending supply of novels at the local library. She found her feet in journalism, working at a rural newspaper before segueing into public relations and now fiction writing and blogging for Romance Writers Australia. Maya currently lives in Narrawong with her husband and three children.
