AUSSIE MONTH with Loretta Hill
Describe yourself in one word:
Tell us about The Grass is Greener:
The Grass is Greener and it’s about two best friends, Claudia and Bronwyn who decide to swap places. Claudia goes to work in the fast-paced corporate world of the legal profession in urban Perth. Bronwyn is thrown into managing a vineyard in Yallingup, located in the Margaret River wine region. They both encounter their own unexpected problems and of course, a gorgeous trouble making man who they can’t seem to resist. Due to the swap, there are two story threads that slowly become intertwined with a surprising ending.
What inspired this novel?
My husband is a lawyer so I am forever hearing fascinating and sometimes shocking stories that go on in his world. It’s a fast paced and stressful profession that can have you tearing your hair out. Our perfect getaway is Yallingup where his family lives. The pace is the complete opposite, the scenery gorgeous and the food to die for. They are such very different worlds that the life swap premise immediately appealed to me. This story has many themes though, best friends, family, moving, falling in love, jealousy and forgiveness. My own life experience has definitely helped me with bringing realism to this novel.

Haven’t planned the second half of the year yet. A little too soon I think J

The Grass is Greener
The grass always seems greener on the other side . . . until you get there.
For generations Bronwyn Stevenson’s family has thrived in the legal profession and a position at their prestigious firm is hers by right. Only problem is: she doesn’t want it.
Her best friend Claudia has always dreamed of being a lawyer, but tragedy struck and she took up the reins of her father’s vineyard instead. It was supposed to be temporary . . . now there’s no end in sight.
Bronwyn wants Claudia’s life so badly. Claudia can’t imagine anything better than Bronwyn’s job. So the friends hatch a crazy plan to swap places.
Both are determined to be the person they always thought they could never be. But achieving your dreams isn’t easy – and falling in love with the men who oppose them isn’t a good idea . . .
The Grass is Greener is a captivating novel about best friends, family and fighting for what you want, against all odds.
