Heart of Australia

Melbourne Memories

Escaping his dangerous past, former British rock star Justin “The Phoenix” Taylor flees as far away from home as possible to Australia. A marked man with nothing left but his guitar and his talent, Justin is desperate to start over yet still live off the grid. Loneliness and the need to feel a connection to the London pastor who’d saved his life draws Justin to Ella’s Barista Art Coffee Shop—the famous and trendy Melbourne establishment belonging to Pastor Jim Anderson’s niece.

Intrigued by the bearded stranger who looks vaguely familiar, Ella Anderson wearies of serving him his regular flat white espresso every morning with no more than a greeting for conversation. Ella decides to discover his secrets, even if it requires coaxing him with her elaborate latte art creations. And muffins.

Justin gradually begins to open up to Ella but fears his past will collide with their future. When it does, Ella must decide whether they have a future at all.

“The author will have you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next. You will feel God working throughout this whole story. This book deserves a higher rating than a five star review.”

“The story transported me to Melbourne, Australia, and is a beautiful love story combined with some suspense that certainly kept me reading. Marion has written a wonderful story that I thoroughly enjoyed about a former rock star finding his second chances at life and love through God’s grace and forgiveness. ”
