Could a beautiful old house and a handsome stranger hold the key to a life-changing secret?
Rosie Phillips could be forgiven for not being immediately won over by Tanner Bryant. After all, their first meeting involves him knocking a tray of prawn cocktail over her very expensive dress at a charity event in the grounds of Lucerne Lodge.
But little does Rosie know how pivotal that awkward first meeting will be, or how the Lodge will become the unexpected backdrop for a summer spent finding out who she really is, and who she could be …

So happy to be back amongst the Borteen crowd, and what a story they have to share with us this time, set at the beautiful Lucerne Lodge!!
And Rosie has a not so clever first meeting with Tanner, it involves prawn cocktail!, so to say she’s not impressed is a bit of an understatement! But there’s more to Rosie than meets the eye, and when Tanner discovers there may be a link between his family and Rosie, it sets up a really intriguing tale of secrets and repercussions from the past coming back to haunt people – and impacting on those who knew nothing about the goings on in their families younger days!
I loved the characters of Rosie and Tanner – they are both really likeable people who seem to have their hearts in the right place. It’s just when tragedy strikes Tanner, it changes both their destinies and it’s how they deal with the news that sets their future up as a little different from ideal!
You can’t not help but share so much empathy with these characters as the links between their families become clearer, and I also loved the use of crystals throughout the book to add another little spiritual edge to the story – I’m rather partial to a moonstone pendant myself!!
Another fabulous and engaging story from Morton – I hope we get to go back to Borteen again very soon!!
