With a narrative alternating between the past and the present Sweet Wattle Creek by Kaye Dobbie also known as Sara Bennett and Lilly Sommers tells the story of Belle Bartholomew and Sophie Matheson two women haunted by the secrets of their pasts When her father commits suicide after losing his wealth during the post war depression Belle Bartholomew is stunned to learn of the secrets he had been keeping Eager to know she travels to Sweet Wattle Creek to claim her inheritance a rundown hotel beueathed to her by Martha Ambrose and though Belle s uestions put the locals offside she is determined to solve the mystery of her birthNearly sixty years later reporter Sophie Matheson is enchanted by a vintage wedding dress donated to the Sweet Wattle Creek centenary celebrations Intrigued by its mysterious provenance Sophie begins to piece together the story of Belle and Charlie and their connection to the old burnt out hotel on the town s fringe unaware that her own past is catching up to herBoth Belle and Sophie are appealing and sympathetic characters Though their situations are very different they share a similar spirit facing adversity with courage and determinationDobbie s portrayal of small town Australia during the 1930 s is very well done The community of Sweet Wattle Creek is still struggling with grief for their loved ones lost and injured in the Great War and are worried about the impact of the post war depression particularly as travellers pass through their town Dobbie skilfully communicates this tense atmosphere and Belle s status as an outsiderThe mid 1980 s is a fairly bland era by comparison but Dobbie is careful to ensure the period is reflected in the storyline The local paper where Sophie works still uses a mechanical press to publish archives are stored in the basement and the single computer that saves data to floppy discs is still a noveltyMost importantly I thought the story was very well structured both the historical and contemporary timelines complement each other well and advance the plot as a whole The pacing is good and the suspense builds nicely There are some neat turns to the plot and I thought the conclusion was satisfyingSweet Wattle Creek is a well crafted and engaging tale combining mystery drama and romance and I m happy to recommend it
