A delightfully entertaining new rural romance from Karly Lane, the bestselling author with over 550,000 books sold.

Alex Kelly's future is nearly sorted: she has a life she loves in London, a dream job, and plans to buy a cute cottage in the English countryside. There's just one last step: sell the family home her father left her in the small Australian seaside town of Rockne Heads. The place Alex has spent almost two decades trying to forget.

Alex hopes to get in and out again as quickly as she can, however word that she's back in town instantly spreads... along with old gossip and dangerous grudges.

Sully McCoy has spent the last twenty years distancing himself from his father's reputation and has made a good life for himself and his daughter in Rockne Heads. Yet now Alex Kelly is back in town and somehow still turning his life upside down.

He thought he'd never see her again. And Alex is making it perfectly clear that she's not here to relive old memories—she's here to end them once and for all.

As old wounds reopen, Alex fears the secret she vowed to take to her grave will be exposed. And this time, she won't be able to run.
