ACRBA Tour A New Resolution by Rose Dee with Giveaway


2 - 6 December 2013


is Introducing 

( Even Before Publishers Oct 2012)

By Rose Dee


About the Book:
Resolution Island is a safe haven for Anika Demeur - a chance to fulfil dreams, find her place in the world, and a new life for her and young son, Kye. But her dreams of a future are shattered when her son's security is challenged, and the rich and privileged Texan, Nate Hollingsworth sails into the bay. Now Ani must not only fight for her son, but also a growing attraction she has to the one type of man she loathes.

Nate is on a mission - to fulfill his mother's last wish, and change his life. Dropping anchor in the idyllic Resolution harbor, he didn't anticipate becoming involved in illegal fishing, a murder, or an unexpected attraction to the most exasperating woman he has ever met.

The Australian tropical Island, Resolution, sets the scene again for adventures, dreams, and new beginnings. A New Resolution is the final book in the 'Resolution' trilogy, following Back to Resolution and Beyond Resolution.


About the Author:
Rose Dee was born in Ingham, North Queensland, Australia. Her childhood experiences growing up in a small beach community would later provide inspiration for her first novel. Rose, who holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree, decided to try her hand at writing two years ago. The result of that attempt is her first novel, Back to Resolution. Her novels are inspired by the love of her coastal home and desire to produce exciting and contemporary stories of faith for women. Rose's other releases include Beyond Resolution - the second book in the 'Resolution' series. And A New Resolution  the final book in the series. Rose has also co-written a novel in conjunction with three other outstanding Australian Authors: The Greenfield Legacy. Rose resides in Mackay, North Queensland with her husband, young son, and mischievous pup, Noodle.

  1. I would definitely like to see some part of the Great Barrier Reef some day! I'm a Queenslander but have never been out to the reef. jobert(at)tpg(dot)com(dot)au.

    1. I'm horrified to be able to say the same, Jo-Anne. Queenslander too, who has never been to the reef. We tend to overlook what's in our backyard, don't we? I remember when I was teaching in NZ, the staff would say to me that I'd seen far more in the local area than they even knew existed.

    2. I saw the reef by air for the first time recently. I gained a whole new and wonderful perspective. I hope you get there one day soon, ladies. It's fabulous.

  3. Yes, I'd like to visit the Great Barrier Reef, too. And Trinity Beach in Cairns. Not during jelly fish season though. Last time we visited we couldn't step foot into the water for fear we'd get stung. Still, so beautiful to walk the sand.

    1. Hi Dotti
      I visited Cairns for the first time last year - and stood on Trinity Beach waiting for the total solar eclipse. That was soooooooooooo gorgeous I think I overlooked the beach itself. I'd love to go back and check it out.

    2. Yes - stinger season in not the best time to come north, Dotti. April - Sept is probably the best.

    1. Thank you, Catherine. I love a good give away. I think I get more excited than the ones who enter. :-)

  5. I am not sure what part of North Queensland I would like to see maybe the Dantree. The reef would be nice but right now I could go for the peace of a rain forest. I have only gotten as far north as Harvey bay and Fraser Island. Oh one of the Islands with very few people would be nice.

    1. I grew up at Forrest Beach, Jenny. It's one of the little beach communities outside of Ingham. Very sleepy and peaceful. Not tourist orientated. At times you can literally be the only person on the beach.

  6. I'd love to see the Great Barrier Reef in winter and swim in the water without worrying about the stingers. I also have a review of A New Resolution as part of the ACRBA tour on my blog today.

    1. Thank you, Narelle. We went to the Reef during the school holidays in September. It was Tully's first time snorkeling. He loved it.

  7. Hi, I'm a tropical girl at heart who is living in Victoria :) My husband and I would love to visit Haggerstone Island or Lizard Island, off the coast of Far North Qld. I love the idea of being on a tiny island in the middle of a vast ocean. Of course we'd have to fly in on a floatplane. Haggerstone is more of a luxury resort which would be lots of fun. Lizard Island is also a national park. Both look absolutely breathtaking.
    I'm wondering what you mean by 'leaving a comment on any blogs'? I realise this is a blog tour you are doing. May I ask what other blogs you are posting on?

    1. Hi Linsey, There are a list of blogger links on the side of this page . Most of them are in the tour, but maybe Narelle will give you a better answer to this question.

      I grew up in the tropical north, but spent 2 years in Melbourne in my early 20's. I enjoyed my time there, but it didn't take me long to gravitate towards the north again.

  8. Ellis Beach, just north of Palm Cove in Northern QLD is my pick - it is near to the restaurants and shops of Palm Cove and Cairns, yet is away from the crowds and has sufficient accommodation and eating places to make for a relaxed, comfortable and uncluttered holiday in the sun! The Bar and Grill opposite the beach are renowned for having the best hamburgers on the coast!
