Chrissy and the Burroughs Boy by Cathryn Hein - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Chrissy James is back in Levenham, her hometown, and she's happy she can spend time with her family and friends again. She's found her dream job, working as a marketer for a winery. Chrissy used to be madly in love with Nick Burroughs when they were both in high school, but he never seemed to notice her, no matter what she did. Now that she's all grown up she has his interest straight away. He even saves her from an aggressive man, someone who's had too much to drink and won't take no for an answer. Nick instantly falls in love. However, Chrissy isn't the naive lovesick school girl any longer and Nick has to work for it to make her notice him. Will he be able to win her heart?

Nick knows he's fallen head over heels in love with Chrissy soon after his heroic rescue. He needs a plan to make her realize that he's changed from an ignorant boy into a true gentleman. Nick will do anything to make Chrissy fall for him once more and that means their roles are now reversed. He doesn't mind if it makes him look foolish, as long as he has the opportunity to show the girl of his dreams how much she means to him. Will Chrissy give him a chance?

Chrissy and the Burroughs Boy is a wonderful romantic story. Nick is a kind and caring man. He genuinely feels bad about not paying more attention to Chrissy when they were in high school and I loved how he tries to make it up to her. Chrissy is a cute, innocent, good-natured and sensitive girl. She's smart and talented, but has been hurt in the past and doesn't easily let anyone in anymore. Nick has a difficult task to accomplish, but he's determined and willing to do whatever it takes. This is incredibly adorable and I enjoyed reading about every single one of his actions. It's clear from the start that Nick and Chrissy belong together and I loved the amazing chemistry between them. I couldn't turn the pages quickly enough to find out if they'd get their happily ever after.

Cathryn Hein has a great warm writing style that is laced with humor. I was immediately captivated by Chrissy and the Burroughs Boy. It's an entertaining and endearing story about true love and second chances. I really liked this charming feelgood story that put a big smile on my face. Cathryn Hein's vivid descriptions of her main characters and their feelings are making the story come to life in a fabulous way. Chrissy and the Burroughs Boy is funny, sweet and very romantic.

About Cathryn Hein


A South Australian country girl by birth, Cathryn loves nothing more than a rugged rural hero who’s as good with his heart as he is with his hands, which is probably why she writes them! Her romances are warm and emotional, and feature themes that don’t flinch from the tougher side of life but are often happily tempered by the antics of naughty animals. Her aim is to make you smile, sigh, and perhaps sniffle a little, but most of all feel wonderful.

From debut release Cathryn has been a multiple finalist in the Australian Romance Readers Awards and the 2014 awards also saw her in contention for Favourite Australian Romance Author. April’s Rainbow is her seventh rural romance, with more to come. She also plans to add more romantic adventures in the vein of The French Prize to readers’ bookshelves.

Cathryn currently lives at the base of the Blue Mountains in Sydney’s far west with her partner of many years, Jim. When she’s not writing, she plays golf (ineptly), cooks (well), and in football season barracks (rowdily) for her beloved Sydney Swans AFL team.

  7. These are two first lines if the blurb: No girl forgets her first crush. The least he could do is remember it.
    And to me they are everything! This is how I fall for a certain book. Wonderful.
