Win a new book to cure lockdown boredom

You can't go to the movies, out to a show or even browse stores, but that doesn't mean lockdown is without entertainment.

Books are a great way to cure lockdown boredom, and Australian Community Media has got six copies of a new romance novel to give away to help beat that boredom!

Author Eva Scott's latest story, Meet Me in Bendigo, is a romantic comedy about online dating, second chances and following your heart.

Described as 'rural Australia meets You've Got Mail', Meet Me in Bendigo follows small-town girl Annalisa Cappelli as she returns to Wongilly to take over her family's hardware shop while she heals from a tragic loss.

The business has been hit hard by the pandemic and the effects of a new superstore opening nearby. So Annalisa must fight to keep her family's legacy alive.

Things get more complicated when she meets 'sexy as hell' Ed Carpenter, who wants to buy out Annalisa's family store to make way for another superstore.

Aussie author Eva Scott comes from a family of storytellers and has been writing since she could hold a pencil. She developed her 'wanderlust and passion for culture' growing up in a multicultural neighbourhood of Melbourne.

Scott has travelled the world, studied anthropology and lived in Britain and Papua New Guinea.

She volunteers at primary schools, teaching writing and working with children to incite a love of books and reading.

Meet Me in Bendigo is released this month through HarperCollins.
