Worth the Wait (Bindarra Creek A Town Reborn) by Annie Seaton


When Jaclyn Douglas is posted to Bindarra Creek High School as the new principal, she has plans to bring the school forward. Hiding a difficult past behind an aloof exterior, this committed career woman finds it hard to be accepted by the community. When Ryan Rossiter, her nemesis, turns up in town, Jaclyn wonders what else can go wrong in her life. If only Ryan wasn’t one of the good guys.

Ryan Rossiter has had enough of city life and moves to his property on the outskirts of Bindarra Creek. He can’t afford to live off the land, so he continues his work as a building contractor for the Education Department. Meeting up with Jaclyn again is a shock, because he knows very well why she can’t be trusted.

Why has she moved to this small loyal community? Can Ryan believe her assertion that she is here to stay?

And more to the point, can he resist the attraction that this woman holds for him, or will she pull him into her web of lies?

How could one party change so much?
It had been ten years since that night, and walking into the high school
reunion, Lita wasn’t sure what to expect. Her mind was riddled with memories, and her
heart was racing. The moment her eyes locked with Alex’s, her heart
started to beat again, as if part of her had been dead all those years. Life certainly

Feeling broken, Alex longed to move past the disappointment of his military
career. After his friend convinced him to go to his ten-year high school reunion, he
was surprised to find himself smitten with a girl from the past. Lita had
been sweet and innocent back then, but was she still? Part of him longed to see.

What might have been.... and could still be

This was a beautiful second chance romance. At their ten-year high school reunion, Alex and Lita discover that they would like to find out what might have been if they had stayed together all those years before.

Will the obstacles in their way be enough to tear them apart or will they only come out strong in the end?

LOVED this story!

A story about being true to yourself and your dreams. Not giving up and second chances at love. Or even third chances lol.

Alex's confidence was injured after his body was injured, this is a story of him healing in many forms.

Lita gave up her dreams and later learned what she wanted was just as important. I loved it wasn't an insta easy to be together story. The couple had to learn to adjust to their altered realities and be true to what they wanted.

During middle school, a group of friends and Cherron started "The Outcast" a club established for building a love of writing.
