REVIEW: “Red Dirt Heart 3” by NR Walker



Life for Charlie Sutton has never been better, or busier. With Travis now a permanent fixture of Sutton Station, a permanent fixture at Charlie’s side, Charlie’s convinced he couldn’t do anything on his ever-growing to-do list without him.

He can run a multimillion dollar cattle business, finish his degree, try and further the local beef industry, deal with staff issues, Ma’s failing health, and an attention-demanding wombat. He can even deal with an unexpected visitor and some shattering news.

He can deal with it all, as long as he has Travis.

But what happens when he doesn’t?

Red Dirt Heart 3 is the story of Charlie Sutton finally realising he can be the man Travis Craig deserves, even if he doesn’t have Travis. It’s a story of love, family, holding on, letting go and coming home.


Never. Ever. Ever. Give up.

Don’t give up on NR Walker.

Don’t give up on Charlie & Travis.

Don’t give up on a baby wombat. (huh?)

Let’s review shall we? I LOVED book 1. I was tepid about book 2. Book 3 started very slowly for me. Lots of sex. Lots of “Oh Travis” *swoon* “Oh Charlie” *swoon back*. And that’s fine…but it got to be a bit boring for my liking. Though I care for all these characters and I AM interested (I swear I am!) in the happenings of their day to day lives, it just wasn’t holding my attention.

And them BAM!

Go back to line 1: Never. Ever. Ever. Give up.

This book took an emotional turn that had me in tears page after page. I felt Charlie’s insecurity. I felt his pain. I felt his anger. I felt his strength. I felt his resignation. I felt his sadness. I felt his lonliness. And it HUUUUUURRRRTTTT!

Those who know me, know that I don’t like the angsty bits too much. But, if there’s a reason for it, if the story takes me someplace I need to go to get to where I want to be? Ok, I’ll do it. That’s what happened here. NR Walker took us to that place. And it wasn’t this huge WHACK over the head. It was subtle. And the ache was real. And because this is her, she brought us back…to a place of joy and healing and love. To our much-desired HEA…to Charlie’s and Travis’ true love ending.

I cried. I did that thing I do when I earned it…I hugged my Kindle. And, well…I wanted more!!!! GAH! I want more Charlie and Travis! So, Ms. Walker, whattaya say…MORE?


PS: Nugget kinda steals the show…just saying…
