On her return home, and shocked to learn what has been going on in her absence, she finds herself reluctantly confronting a secret she's kept hidden for a very long time. Once again Romily is challenged to save the day and hold the family together. Can she do it, and maybe seize some happiness for herself at the same time?From the gorgeous Suffolk countryside to the glamorous resort of Palm Springs, let Erica James sweep you away...*** Readers are enchanted by Erica's storytelling...'A glorious summer story which sizzles with passion: idyllic location, compelling characters and lives so interwoven that their secrets have the power to change everything.
