Back cover blurb:

From the rugged beauty of the Adelaide Hills comes a story of loss, hope and new beginnings...

Claire McIntyre has it all: an adoring husband, a bubbly best friend, a chic townhouse and a high-flying corporate career in the city. But somehow she’s forgotten what really makes her happy.

After receiving tragic news, closely followed by the loss of her job, Claire’s world is thrown into turmoil. She is then forced to reconsider everything that matters to her.

Claire soon finds herself back at the very place she’s been running from — the family property. A place where the bush telegraph exposes every secret, where reputations are hard won and easily lost, and where fortune is as fickle as the weather.

Here, in the rugged beauty of the Australian Adelaide Hills, Claire starts to rebuild her life with her friends, her father and his beloved racehorses — including a promising young horse called Paycheque.

But just as she begins to find happiness, and perhaps even love, fate comes to call. Now Claire must decide whether to do the sensible thing, or risk it all on her newfound passion...

"I have just finished reading your book Paycheque, absolutely loved every page of it, couldn't stop reading it... I will eagerly look forward to reading your next book." Pam, Kalamunda, WA

"I absolutely love your book Paycheque... Your writing is just beautiful and I could not put the book down. Awaiting your next book." Joanne

“Have just finished reading ‘Paycheque’ and really enjoyed it. It’s so nice to read a book that has a story and romance but doesn’t have pages of sex. You got it just right. As a person who has been involved with the racing industry, in a very small way, this story really hit the mark. Will be looking forward to more of your books in the future. Good luck.” Lillian, Darwin, NT

"I’ve finished reading Paycheque now and I congratulate you on a very fine book. It is a really beautiful and very human story. All in all it was very intelligently written. Obviously you have a very good grasp of human nature – the characters were very true and consistent." Peter, Kent Town, SA

"A good read, light and feel good just what is needed at bedtime...I was cross when it finished..." Bec, Strathalbyn, SA

“PAYCHEQUE” was and is the best book!! I couldn’t put it down and very sorry when it finished. Please keep writing – I love Rachael Treasure and her down to earth books. You are all bringing the best out of the country onto the bookshelves. Keep up the wonderful work!! Absolutely BRILLIANT!! Jane
