Runaway to the Outback (Welcome to Bunya Junction, Book 2) by Nicole Flockton – Review by Barbara Bohls

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Have you ever showed up to a bar in a wedding dress? No, me either but that is how Pandora entered into the life of Jonas. This isn’t your typical run away bride story. I gave this story 4 stars because it is a decent and easy read. The characters do have some development throughout the story but the ending feels a little rushed. It is a slow burn steamy romance between the two main characters and they struggle through the whole book to overcome their personal issues. The issues get resolved in the last chapter of the book and the epilogue gives you a months after they resolved things and ends with a happy ending. It just felt as though there could have been more substance from the last chapter to the epilogue. I wanted to know more and be more intertwined into the overall plot of the story. Don’t get me wrong, this is a good book and worth reading and the series so far is good. I would recommend this book to people but would give a warning of the rushed ending. Again, this is just my take on the story. I am one that loves to be fully immersed into the story and I wasn’t with this one. I would chose to read it again because I can’t stress enough that it is good. I just like a little more meat and potatoes with my books.

OMG I am so in love with Bunya Junction!! please take me there again and soon! Nicole Flockton has created a beautiful little town, a wonderful strong community and characters that weave their way into your heart where they will stay.

Runaway to the Outback is the second book in the Welcome to Bunya junction series and brings us the story Of Jonas and Pandora. Jonas is a Bunya Junction boy who returned to town, after a successful career as a stockbroker, to run the town pub. Pandora is a highly successful model who after having had enough at a difficult shoot lands in Bunya junction and decides to stay for a while to clear her head. Both have preconceived ideas about it each other and need to look past those to the “real” person beneath. I am positive you will be pulling for this gorgeous couple from start to finish just as I was.

Characters met in the first book do return and even though you can read this book without having read the first and fully enjoy it, I do recommend reading it simply because its awesome.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

With book one in this series, Home to the Outback, author Nicole Flockton became one of my favorite authors and that continued throughout all of book 2. Once again Nicole brings her characters to life with such detail that it is impossible not to get involved in their story and wish only good things for them.
In this book, we once again are taken to small town Bunya Junction and thrust into the lives of Jonas, younger brother to Sindy, the heroine of book one and Pandora.
Jonas is zealous about his work. He owns the pub and inn and works harder in a day than most people in a week. Pandora is a model and while she enjoys it in some aspects others make her feel the need to run. And run she does, straight into Jonas’ pub and in a wedding dress to boot!
Pandora is exactly the opposite of the model stereotype. She is warm, considerate, tender and is no slouch. She works just as hard as Jonas.
Jonas is determined, steadfast and opinionated and as the story plays out these traits make Pandora wonder if he could ever support her in some very difficult circumstances and decisions she must work through.
The characters are very well developed and the story is a page turner. Much like book one I couldn’t put it down. I love the scenes containing previous characters. Especially Ryan and Sindy. Getting to follow their lives together, even as supporting characters, really adds a bit of treasure you don’t get in stand alone stories.
I am in so in love with this town I wanna pack up and move there! Cannot wait for January when book 3, Doctor in the Outback, Scott’s story is released!!

5 stars are not enough!! This book is phenomenal. It’s a page turner and I couldn’t put it down. I enjoyed it so much I instantly picked up book two in the series. If you are looking for a great read with emotion, detail, great characters and an amazing HEA, then look no further this book is for you!
Sindy (btw I love the unusual spelling of her name) is a great character. She is so well described it is hard not to relate to her. I became very invested in seeing her get that great love!! Ryan is the traditional male character who thinks a little too much of himself, but finds his own in the end.
Being in the medical field myself I love how the people are skeptical of the new doctor. In real life it is truly like that when an out going but well loved doctor sells his or her practice. Yet the people of Bunya Junction still trust nurse Sindy. She ingratiates the people of Bunya Junction to Dr. Ryan and really makes them all see how kind and compassionate he truly is.
Author Nicole Flockton is officially on my list of favorite authors and I am willing to bet if you give her stories a chance she will be on yours too!!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Small town charm does it again; Runaway to the Outback is a story that grows on you. We have all had those moments where we want to disconnect from it all and take a breather or two. I loved that Pandora had the strength and opportunity to do this. She took a step back from the hustle and bustle of it all and ended up on the avenue of love. I appreciated that Pandora and Jonas coming together was not rushed, but they had time to get to know each other. I admired the complexities of these two characters. Runaway to the Outback is realistic, romantic, entertaining, and whimsical; make it your next read!

Just like Flockton’s first book of the series, Runaway to the Outback was a cute game of cat and mouse with Pandora and Jonas denying their attraction to each other and inwardly stating why their relationship would never work until the last second.

This one in particular calls to me as Pandora is very much a city girl finding all the joys in small town/country living.
The descriptions are great and I love the support that Jonas’ family provides each other throughout the books. Very realistic!

Flockton did it again with this combination of romance and small town charm. Bringing life and a wonderful story to characters, new and old, Flockton provides another love story girls daydream about. The carryover in characters and storyline from the first book from the Bunya Junction series is well done and well worth the read. Again, I can’t wait for additional books in the series to be released.

Jonas and Pandora are amazing together! Jonas and Pandora were made for each other! I absolutely loved learning more about Bunya Junction and getting to know more about some of the residents there. Pandora is such an interesting heroine. She sweeps into Jonas life like a hurricane and makes him realize that there’s more to life than just work and sticking to self imposed rules that were made because of past hurts. They bring out the best in each other and seeing both of their walls start to crumble was absolutely magical! This second book in the series was incredible and I really enjoyed that Ryan and Sindy’s story continued in this one here and there as well. I am so looking forward to learning more about Scott in the third book in this series! I have a feeling it’s going to be just as amazing.

Starting over is just what the heart needs sometimes. Ryan comes to Bunya Junction for what he thinks will just be a quick stop on his journey through life. Once he realizes he’ll need to stay a little longer, he still has one foot out the door. He can’t help being drawn to Sindy though, even after all the years that passed since they last laid eyes on each other. There’s such a strong undeniable chemistry between the two of them and even though they’re both deeply scarred they gravitate to each other. I really enjoyed watching the two of them come to the realization that what they both least wanted just might be what they need more than anything in the world. This is a sweet romance that really left me smiling at the end. I’m really looking forward to reading the next books in this series.

This is the second book in this series from this author. I hadn’t read the first book in the series so I was concerned that I would be missing out on important information. I found that I was able to pick up the story and read. I immediately connected to the main character, and she wasn’t anything like I expected her to be. I thought the story was well written, easy to read, and I didn’t want to put it down. I’ve never been to the Outback, but the author did an amazing job of taking me there. Her description was fantastic, and I could see Australia in my mind. I can’t wait to see where the author takes the story in the next book, but I do intend to read the first one to see what I missed out on. I highly recommend that you read this book if you like romantic stories that take you on a getaway.
