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.

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nova Walsh | 2/17/2014

    " 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. "

    " an easy read; nice characters........worth the time! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Psandefur | 2/15/2014

    " 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?? "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jean Wentz | 2/14/2014

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ameena | 2/8/2014

    " This book had such promise...but as I started reading the characters, the writing style, the protagonist's choices just did not sit well with me. I had to stop mid-way through and I really hate doing that! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara Bocan | 1/25/2014

    " A very quick & easy read about a mother & her teenaged daughter, who return to England ayear & a half after a divorce. The two end up in the Cotswolds & make best friends immediately. I felt the character development was poor & the story was very predictable. I would recommend this book for a vacation or as a airplane book, especially if you enjoy thinking about the English countryside. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kim | 1/21/2014

    " Too predicable... Didn't fel the need to finish the last five chapters, they all live happily ever after I assume. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah Jan | 1/19/2014

    " This is a good relaxing read. Writing is straight forward and the characters seemed real to me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Penny | 1/4/2014

    " Started off ok - pretty standard plotline and I expected a nice read if not a very challenging one, but then it just got really silly about 1/2 way through, when the mistress with child shows up and the main character good naturedly takes her in. Yeah, right! "

    " Yes another good one from Ms. Adler "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phaedra1 | 11/4/2013

    " I thought this was a very charming and endearing story. It moved fast and was full of descriptive writing. Elixabeth Adler does a great job in setting the scene and helping you to feel like you are there in the story with the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathie | 5/24/2013

    " This was a good, relaxing read which managed to chill out some well frayed nerves this week. So I gave it a full 4 stars, even though it was hard to feel much sympathy for a woman who two nanoseconds after her divorce has three men falling all over her. Call me bitter, but...ok, just call me bitter. "

    " How many ways can you say unbelievable? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debbie | 1/18/2013

    " Sounded like a good family story, but it was too shallow. Not much to it or the characters. So many ways it could have been better, so many opportunities to add details and depth, but it wasn't done. Too bad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Auralia | 8/30/2012

    " The plot was a little thin in places but overall I enjoyed reading this book. The main character is a divorced mother of teenage daughter and she is trying to find her place in the world. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darlene ysaguirre | 7/30/2012

    " So This Book Was Good But That Was All I didnt find myself believing all of the scenerios and stuff that happened wasent realiatic in a sense of her husbands murder the women ect..but other then that i found the characters really relatable..but i guess this story wasent my cup of tea. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 amypete | 7/4/2012

    " 2.5. Kind of predictable story, like a made-for-tv movie, but not bad. She's got 10 more like it, so I can always read one of these when I can't find anything else. "
