Cover Reveal for “The Secret Vineyard”

I’m celebrating my birthday today by going out for lunch, getting take out for dinner and revealing the cover and blurb of my 2018 release, “The Secret Vineyard.” Yay!

This book has been a long time coming! The past two years have been a bit of a roller coaster ride for me. Two house moves along with a few extra challenges in my family life. I’ve had to take it slow with the writing but I think it’s been worth the patience. The inspiration well got filled to the brim. So my new novel, “The Secret Vineyard” due out Jan 2018 feels just that little bit more fresher and exciting.

Without further ado, here’s the latest edition to the Loretta Hill bookshelf.




January 2018 – Penguin Random House Australia

When you’re stumbling through life, try falling head over heels …

Grace Middleton knew that her ex-husband Derek was a lying, cheating, wife-abandoning bastard.

What she didn’t know – until his untimely death – was that he was also the owner of a secret vineyard in the heart of the Margaret River Wine Region. And, much to the chagrin of his new wife, he’s left the property to Grace’s three young sons.

With the intention of putting it up for sale, Grace takes the boys to view Gum Leaf Grove. And immediately finds herself embroiled in mysteries from Derek’s past – and becomes the accidental target of the resident ‘ghost’.

Nowadays Grace believes in love even less than she believes in ghosts. So no one is more surprised than her when she’s caught between two very different men – with secrets of their own . . .

A sparkling romantic comedy about trust after betrayal, hope after regret, and falling in love after vowing never ever to do it again . . .
