Betrayed by her fiance, freelance musician Primrose Pretty escapes to Nirvana, her brother Danny's rural Australian commune. Although determined to live the simple life, Primrose finds the primitive conditions and slack attitude of the "residents" stressful. Her awkward relationship with her brother creates even more problems and reopens family wounds she'd sought to heal. Danny, with secrets of his own, wishes interfering Primrose would leave.
Tom Fairbrother, owner of the flourishing property next door, offers an attractive alternative to the commune. After a passionate night with him, Primrose is confused. Is he merely a distraction, or is what she feels real and everlasting?
Trouble In Nirvana
Talented, but supremely disorganised violinist, Hannah is going on a concert tour of rural Australia.
As a favour to his Uncle Bernard the tour leader, Jack, famous wilderness photographer reluctantly agrees to accompany the musicians and provide photos of the trip. An added favour is collecting Hannah. But she isn't ready, the cat has had an accident and any prospect of a leisurely trip alone in his car is shattered when the tour bus departs without her. Enforced confinement with a chattering, messy, infuriatingly cheerful woman is Jack's idea of hell.
Their relationship deteriorates rapidly as even more areas of disagreement emerge. An added irritation on both sides is undeniable physical attraction. How will they survive a night in the car, stranded by flood waters, on an isolated country road? And once back in Sydney is there any future for the fledgling love they have both begun reluctantly, to experience?
