Caroline Evans is a single mom trying to raise her fifteen-year-old daughter, Issy, as best she can. Her ex-husband, James, was a philandering charmer—and a wealthy one at that. Their life had been lavish, but Caroline couldn’t put up with his cheating and left him, taking Issy with her. And Issy has never forgiven her.

Now, they live in the countryside outside London, where Caroline has built a modestly successful catering business, and Issy is now at an all-girls boarding school. Things are beginning to feel normal. But when James mysteriously appears on her doorstep one night—and then vanishes soon after—Caroline feels her world being turned upside down once again.

Delving into a world of high-stakes finance she knows little about, Caroline and Issy must find a wary peace … and solve a murder. With trademark twists and turns and memorable characters, Elizabeth Adler delivers another summer getaway novel that will leave you gasping for more.

Listener Opinions

    " I cannot believe how poorly written this book was. I wanted to like it but the characters were shallow and the pacing was so off that it was hard to follow. The worst part for me were the obvious mistakes and inconsistencies even a quick editing job might have caught - for example having a character decide to walk over to the place and then having him get out of the car as if he'd driven in the next paragraph. Really amateurish. Not worth the read. "

    " Elizabeth Adler once again takes us to exotic and foreign places. A story about starting over and the clash of mother and teenage daughter and finding new friends. Would have liked a different ending but maybe there is a sequel?? "

    " too sappy...didn't get beyond p. 50 or so. "
