Her Outback Driver - Giulia Skye - Armchair Travel #1 - Western Australia

Updated: Apr 22, 2022

Today, I'm delighted to join the Silver Dagger Blog Tour for Giulia Skye's debut novel, Her Outback Driver, which is a finalist in the Romance Writers of America's inaugural Vivian Awards.

Isn't it wonderful how a book can take you places that you might never have the opportunity to visit in real life?

Giulia Skye's Her Outback Driver takes the reader to the remote Kimberly Region that covers much of Western Australia, an area three times larger than England but with a population of only around 40,000. It's an area of great natural beauty, with a dramatic landscape of gorges and waterfalls. One of the last untouched wildernesses left on Earth, it makes for an amazing road trip for the two main characters, and the author conveys the sense of place brilliantly in her writing so that the reader is able to make the journey along the Gibb River with them.

About Her Outback Driver

When former Olympic Swimmer, Michael Adams—now reluctantly Canada’s hottest reality TV star— insults his fake showbiz wife on social media, he escapes the ensuing scandal and jumps on the first flight to Australia. Desperate to experience ordinary life again—if only for a few weeks—he becomes “Adam”, just another tourist traveling through the Outback. But with a reward out for his safe return and his fame’s nasty habit of catching up with him when he least expects, he needs a disguise… and he’s just found it.

Sweet and scruffy British backpacker, Evie Blake, is taking a year out of her busy London life. Tired of lies and liars, she’s looking for adventure to heal her broken heart. So when the hot Canadian she meets at the campground offers to be her travel partner through Western Australia’s wild Kimberley region, she grabs the chance, unaware he’s got the world out looking for him.

He’s just a down-on-his-luck traveler, right?

Italian-born Giulia Skye spent her childhood watching classic Hollywood films and thinking up her own romantic stories. After two decades working in TV production, she knew turning those stories into novels would be much more enjoyable - and far cheaper – than turning them into films. She still keeps her hand in TV production but is at her happiest being a stay-at-home mum, spending time with her family, growing her own vegetables, and conjuring up sizzling stories about sexy heroes meeting feisty heroines who aren’t always as they at first appear. Her Outback Driver is her first novel, Book 1 of her “Take a Holiday” series.
