"Will capture your heart... a delightful mix of love, history, and redemption!" - Reviewer

Wrested back to Cabarita Beach by her grandmother's sudden death, Kate Summer discovers a mystery buried in the past that changes everything.

Kate returns home to the sleepy hamlet of Cabarita Beach and the run-down Waratah Inn for her grandmother's funeral. She spent many happy childhood years at the inn, but all she wants to do now is sell the dilapidated boutique inn and head back to the city and her busy, professional life. But she and her two estranged sisters discover they've inherited the inn together. To sell, they need all three sisters to agree to the sale.

Soon, her carefully constructed life begins to unravel and Kate decides to stay in Cabarita Beach to renovate the elegant, old building. Despite her misgivings about reviving the crumbling structure, she quickly becomes consumed with crown moulding, history and an attractive horse wrangler she can't seem to ignore. When she discovers a clue to a mystery from the past in her grandmother's things, she'll be drawn down a path that raises more questions than answers.

Piece-by-piece she and her sisters will uncover the secret former life of their beloved grandmother. A life of love, intrigue, and loss. A life they never knew she had. An opportunity to sell the Inn pushes them to make a choice: commit to the Waratah Inn and family, or walk away from the Inn and each other, back to their separate and isolated lives.

The first book in a continuing series of four. Binge the entire series today.

“Kate? Are you okay?”

She raised her head to find herself face to face with a half-naked, dripping wet Alex. He had a surfboard tucked under one arm, his tanned torso flexed as he shifted the weight of it, and concerned hazel eyes fixed on hers through several wet strands of hair that dripped saltwater down his nose and cheeks as she watched.

Her heart skidded to a stop. 

“Ah… yep. I’m…” Who was she kidding? There wasn’t a person on earth she could fool into thinking she was fine in the state she was in. Her usual bluffs wouldn’t work this time.

“I thought you didn’t surf anymore?”

“It was time I got back into it… time for a few changes, I think. Are you sure you’re…?”

She stared at him, her eyes still filling with tears at the thought of what Davis had said. Was she so replaceable? So undesirable?

She walked up to Alex, curled a hand around behind his neck, pulled his head down towards her and pressed her lips to his. He tasted like salt and smelled like the ocean.
