Peak Hill is contemporary fiction with romantic elements and is my debut novel.
When her sheltered and idyllic life on the remote family farm in rural New Zealand is shattered by a tragic accident, Kate is forced to accept help from Ethan, a childhood friend, or risk losing her livelihood and beloved home. Ethan’s presence causes conflict and brings change. Kate is forced out of her comfort zone as he pushes her to open up. Everything Kate believes is challenged, including her own identity.
When fate again steps in and Kate must go on a journey, she finds herself completely out of her depth. She performs a random act of kindness for a stranger and as a result ends up a situation that causes her to question her commitment to the farm and changes her life forever.
Peak Hill was a finalist in the 2016 Romance Writers Of New Zealand Pacific Hearts Full Manuscript contest.
Here are excerpts from some of the five-star reviews Peak Hill has received:
“I thoroughly enjoyed this book and couldn’t wait to pick it up again and see where the story went. The imagery was fantastic and it was easy to imagine the countryside and being inside the story. Great first novel by this author and I really look forward to reading her next ones in the future!”
“Pathos – humour – intrigue – passion. Peak Hill captures the range of human emotions and speeds along with a page-turning momentum. Loved it !”
“First-time author K A Servian had me caught from the beginning. A great novel set in New Zealand with characters you didn’t want to close the page on. Hard to put down once I started reading with light-hearted characters and interesting story line. Would definitely recommend.”
