My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a treat to revisit Bunya Junction! I loved the family dynamics among the adult siblings. Readers encounter main characters who love each other but have experienced a tragedy. Their tragedy was followed by poor interpersonal communication. Will they make their way back to one another? Will the siblings learn to relate to one another as grown adults? Read to find out!

5 stars

This is the fourth book in the Welcome to Bunya Junction Series and I cannot tell you how much I loved it. The most important part, in my opinion, is that this book is able to stand alone as a strong novel on its own. I have not read the other three books in the series, but I promise that I will now as I want to know more about the characters that I grew to love throughout this story.

In Reunion in the Outback we meet Yolanda and Michael who are living their life in Sydney. They have just weathered one of the toughest trials of their marriage, and to be honest, their lives. They also managed to do this without the support of family nearby. Michael has been trying to outrun the reputation of his father while Yolanda has been trying to prove her independence from her close knit family.

When Yolanda senses changes in their lives, she chooses to run back to her family for their support. She needs space from Michael and she needs space to think. But is her family the best choice to return to.

Soon Michael is blindsided by even more change and he finds himself with the ability to run after Yolanda to try to win her back. But by returning home to Bunya Junction, he must face all that he ran from when he left and the reputation of his father. Is winning Yolanda back worth facing his fears? Will facing his fears win Yolanda back?

Both of them need to decide if they should stay apart or if they really were better together. They also must decide if what they were running away from all those years ago in Bunya Junction is really what they thought it was. Maybe their life and their home isn’t in Sydney after all.

It’s a reunion of siblings when Yolanda (also known as Yolo and Lana) arrives on her brother Scott’s doorstep with her young daughter, Jayne. We’ve met Scott, Sindy, and Jonas in previous books and we get to interact with them more with Lana’s story.

She’s yearned for another child for years but Michael, Yolanda’s husband, can’t bear to see her again the way she was earlier in the year when she miscarried. Upset, Yolanda gathers up Jayne and they return to Yolo’s home in Bunya Junction. She avoids all the questions from the family, just letting them know she needs some time away. After all, Michael will be busy at the restaurant, which is where he practically lives these days anyway.

Michael can’t figure out what he did to have the love of his live leave with his daughter. That’s issue #1. Then the phone rings added an additional layer to already mounting pile of disasters. He loves the fact that Charles gave him this opportunity to be the head chef of Charlie’s but he also realizes the time he spends there might be impacting his marriage.

Not being able to withstand the separation any further, Michael leaves Sydney and heads to Bunya Junction. After all, with his new news, he’s got the time to work on his relationship now. Will it be too late? With so many secrets flying around, is there any hope left?

This book concludes the Bunya Junction series. I’m a little sad to see it end!! I’ve enjoyed getting to know the Carruthers family and all their dysfunctions! Each of these books may be read as a standalone but I enjoyed reading them all fairly close together. I highly recommend this series to those who enjoy a good family full of perfectly dysfunctional issues to help us all feel a little more normal. 🙂

I absolutely adored Michael and Yolondas story. I read the other books in the Bunya Junction series and this one was just as great as all the others. It was equal parts heart breaking and romantic. I devoured it in just a few hours because I couldn’t put it down. It was a story of defeat and helplessness but also of courage and strength. I highly recommended if you like small town romances!

Back to Bunya Junction for the last book in the series – this makes me sad as I’ve fallen in love with the world and its characters but once again, it is brilliantly written.
This fourth book is a different kind of romance as the lead characters are married from the beginning (and not in a marriage of convenience) so that throws a new spin on things and shows the true side to all marriages – that there can still be miscommunication and misunderstandings. It also gives everyone hope that true love still exists if you’re willing to fight for it!
So goodbye to Bunya Junction, but still looking forward to future books by this author!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Having grown up wanting to be a doctor and loving new babies, this third instalment checked all the boxes, not to mention the romance one of course. I had already read the first two books in this series so it was great to return to Bunya Junction and discover what all the other Carruthers siblings were up to since I last saw them. Love the rural Australian setting as well and picturing the town and all its characters. Highly recommended!

What a delightful and emotional read!

Reunion in the Outback is book 4 in the Welcome to Bunya Junction series. I have not read the others in the series, but despite that, I had no problem following the story. I feel like it can easily be read as a standalone.

I love a really good second chance romance, and this one did not disappoint. It actually stood apart from so many others in the genre. The writer gave me something different. This is about a couple, Yolanda and Michael, who have been together for many years and were happily married until a scary medical emergency threw their marriage into turmoil. Neither she nor Michael are sure they can ever find their way back to one another.

Michael and Yolanda were wonderful characters. They were both complex and complicated. Flockton did a great job of continually adding layers to them in each chapter with both Yolanda and Michael each telling me their story. Both of them are also keeping very important secrets from each other, but that was a symptom of their marriage at that point. I so wanted them to find their way back to each other. They loved each other so much, but doubts kept creeping back in, so they would take two steps backward for each step forward. However, I was very pleased with the ending.

Flockton is a new writer for me, and I can’t wait to read more from her, especially the earlier books in the series. It was a gorgeous story about love, loss, separation, reunion, and the importance of family.

The fourth book in the Bunya Junction series follows the story of the fourth sibling and baby of the bunch. She experiences joy, love, heartache and fear as her life turns in an unexpected direction. As in previous books, the author delves into secondary characters in just enough depth to tie things together. This book had more conflict than the others but was also relatable in that conflict is real and normal.

The author has done it once again. With the introduction of new characters intertwining with familiar characters, new opportunities for love, family and growth are introduced as well. Not only is this book easy to read, it is also enjoyable and reminds us that love and possibilities are out there. If you enjoy a good love story with just the right amount of twists, this is a must read.

I have read this whole series of The Outback and love it. These books can be read as a standalone series if you don’t want to read the three books before. I love that Yolanda and Michael reconnect and have chemistry. Their marriage was in shambles that left them separated from each other than reunited in the outback of Bunya Junction. This book was emotional and with a splash of drama and marriage oops but also shows that love can overcome anything if you really try. I hope there will be another book in this series. It has became one of my favorites.
