    OK read

    A nice quick read with some interesting characters and storyline. I didn't enjoy this one as much as some of the others in the series but overall it isn't a bad read. For me I had a hard time feeling the connection between Elsa and Jack. She's gregarious, outgoing and loves the little town of Wirralong. He's a loner, reserved, and has a major chip on his shoulders when it comes to the town and it's residents. The combo just seemed odd. The book is well written and the characters nicely developed so it's a solid book.

    Elsa takes a stand for Jack. Will he do the same?

    This is the 3rd story in The Outback Bride Series. Each is written by a different author. Cathryn Hein takes us prospecting, Jack for Opals, his mom for Sapphires, Elsa for love. Jack spends his life on the hunting opal. Just him and his dog it's lonely but he thinks a full life. Then his mom dies and he's brought back to the small town he grow up in. A town that the rumor mill is either talking about his mother digging for sapphires or his father who was a thief. Returning to town he is needing a quick haircut and shave, to get to her funeral. Meet Elsa she runs the local beauty shop and cant help him right now. He grabs her clippers and buzzes his own hair and shaves his beard. That’s was not the shocking part, it was when he changes his clothes out on the street in front of her shop. Now it seems he is as attracted to Elsa as she is to him.Trying to bring the ranch back to life. Also working on his relationship with his brother who lives with his father. Elsa takes her stand she doesn't care what people think of him. She stands by him even when it cost her a customer. When a problem arises will Jack take a stand or will he escape to the outback?

    Gotta love the Outback

    Elsa’s Stand is the third book in new multi-author Outback Brides series. In this book we have story of Elsa O’Donoghue. Elsa is the owner of Hair Affair and the hairdresser and she is a part of all the stories so far. Elsa is a hard-working woman and she has such a warm heart that will make you fall in love with her. She is strong-willed and will not let anything stop her getting what she wants. Jack Hargreaves has returned to Wirralong after his mother’s death. He enters Hair Affair on his way to his mother’s funeral to get a quick haircut, but Elsa is too busy with a wedding party. So, Jack walks over to the trolley with her clippers on it and helps himself and has a quick shave with the beard trimmers and before leaving he drops a hundred bucks on the counter. Elsa is drooling when he leaves and strips off his shirt in the main street outside her shop to change for the funeral. Jack left Wirralong many years ago after the town had judged him on his father’s wrong doings. He has been an opal miner since then with his own claim. He is staying at his mother’s property and repairing it as she had let it go into disrepair, in her search for sapphires on the property. Jack had a call from her before she died saying she had found them but had reburied them. Now Jack was searching for the illusive sapphires. Elsa’s Stand is another fun-loving story in this fantastic series. There are many twists that will once again keep the reader hooked until the very end. I totally enjoy how Cathryn has written the characters in this book and how realistic she has made the story feel. We feel every single emotion along with the characters and we laugh and cry at times and then feel frustrated at other times. We all know how true it is to be judged by communities on past family mistakes. People are always quick to judge and not give the benefit of the doubt. It is why I likes Elsa so much as she was not like that she trusted Jack for who he was. This book and the others in this series could be read as standalone. I would highly recommend this book. I am looking forward to continuing reading in this series.
