Aussie author Mandy Magro returns to her popular Rosalee series with her latest novel, released this month.

Road to Rosalee is the third book in the series, and to celebrate its release, Australia Community Media has seven copies to give away, thanks to our friends at HarperCollins.

Magro said it was a joy to revisit her beloved series.

"With Rosalee Station being my first published book way back in 2011, followed by Return to Rosalee in 2018, this series is extremely close to my heart," she said.

"Sarah was the first heroine I breathed to life, so she is based a lot on myself and my experiences in the outback.

"Revisiting all the wonderful characters was such a thrill, especially Sarah and Matt, because you never know what's going to happen in their exciting life.

"My readers were hungry for the next instalment, so I wanted to deliver a story that would once again make them swoon, cry and sigh. I can't wait to reveal the next big secret in this third novel of the series."

The new novel follows city girl Melody, who finds herself in the wide-open skies of Rosalee Station after her mother confesses a long-held secret on her deathbed.

Returning characters Matt and Sarah Walsh are at peace, but their happiness is again thrown into turmoil when Matt answers the door to a young woman with shocking news.

Meanwhile Zai has finally landed his dream job as head stockman at Rosalee Station and crosses paths with Melody, who has become the new camp cook. Sparks fly between them from their first encounter.

Magro said her own experiences shaped Road to Rosalee.

"I was a camp cook out at Tobermory Station in 2009, and the adventures I had out there will remain in my heart forever," she said.

"Write what you're passionate about."
