Melanie "Mel" Anderson is flying
by the seat of her pants as manager
of the small California-based airport, North Beach. Her employees are
the family she never had, but the
owner, Sally, who was like a mother
to Mel, has been MIA for many years.

Australian Bo Black lands at North Beach holding the deed to the airport and
a deep desire to find his father's plane and his inheritance -- both of which were swindled from his father during
the short time he was married to Sally.

Turbulence ensues as Mel realizes
the past few years were all a lie and her future is on rocky ground. She struggles with her attraction to Bo because he's
the enemy, isn't he?

Shalvis skillfully constructs a pragmatic setting for her story, enabling it
to come to life, and draws the reader
in from the start. Evenly developed
supporting and main characters make Aussie Rules a well-rounded read, but the great storyline buildup leads to a less than spectacular ending. (Jun.,
320 pp., $14.00)
