Waiting On Wednesday: ‘The Girl In the Yellow Vest’ by Loretta Hill

Weekly Meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spine

I am so excited about this weeks ‘Waiting On Wednesday’ choice. Ever since first hearing about via the author’s blog months ago, and then seeing it listed on the publisher’s website I haven’t been able to wipe the smile off my face; I’m simply that excited to get my hands on a copy!

Last year I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy of The Girl In The Hard Hat from Random House Australia, and knowing that it was the second book in a loosely linked series I set out to read The Girl In The Steel Capped Boots first.  From a few pages in of the first book, I feel in love with Loretta Hill’s writing and have been an avid fan ever since 🙂 So much so that when I heard that her third book was not going to be set in the Pilbara like the first two, I was a little bit disappointed. That was until I heard that the third book was to be set in Queensland and was following the same theme of the first two it just had a different setting and location. I can’t wait to January roles around so I can get my hands on this book 🙂


The Girl In The Yellow Vest by Loretta Hill

Published by: Random House Australia

Expected Publication:  January 2014


We can’t choose who we fall in love with. It could be our best friend or … our worst enemy.’

Emily Woods counts cracks for a living. Concrete cracks. So when her long-term boyfriend dumps her, she decides it’s time for a change of scenery. Her best friend, Will, suggests joining his construction team in Queensland. Working next door to the Great Barrier Reef seems like just the sort of adventure she needs to reboot her life…until she realises that Will is not the person she thought he was.

Charlotte Templeton is frustrated with the lack of respect FIFO workers have for her seaside resort. But picking a fight with their tyrannical project manager, Mark Crawford, seems to lead to more complications than resolutions. The man is too pompous, too rude, and too damned good looking.

As both women strive to protect their dreams and achieve their goals, they discover that secrets will come out, loyalty often hurts, and sometimes the perfect man is the wrong one.
