A woman’s return to rural England stirs up family secrets—and a chance at love—in this award-winning, “chilling [and] gripping” novel of romantic suspense (Christina Courtenay, award-winning author of Highland Storms).
When Dr. Lia Thompson’s grandmother Ivy dies unexpectedly, Lia reluctantly returns to Norfolk to handle her estate. It’s an uneasy homecoming, raising old fears and new suspicions. When Lia discovers her grandmother was a town gossip with plenty of secrets, she wonders if there was more to her death than meets the eye.
In her search for the truth, Lia finds an ally in ex-navy man Aidan Morrell—who also happens to be her high school crush. But the emotionally scarred Aidan has secrets of his own, and his motives for helping Lia may be hidden in a very dark place. In a world of increasing danger, is Aidan someone Lia can trust to help retrace her grandmother’s final steps? Or is Lia slowly being edged toward the same chilling fate?
“A mystery as chilling as the wild Norfolk setting, with a passionate romance. A gripping read.” —Christina Courtenay
