They drive each other crazy.
And they both have something to hide.
But we all have our secrets.
It’s just some are bigger than others…
Joe has a beautiful house, a great job, no commitments – and he likes it like that. All he needs is a quiet house-sitter for his rambling old place by the sea. When Tess turns up on his doorstep, he’s not sure she’s right for the job. Where has she come from in such a hurry? Her past is a blank and she’s a bit of an enigma. But there’s something about her – even though sparks fly every time they meet.
And it looks like she’s here to stay…
This book has it all, the girl, the guy, the complications along the way. I’ll warn you that it is slow to start, however if you’re anything like me persevere as it’ll be wanting to find out what the secrets are which will keep you reading. Freya has captured a single mother perfectly. Tess could have easily been a pathetic sap which would have made me want to reach into the book and give her a slap! But no, Freya has highlighted the worries and priorities of a single mum and given it just a little bit of sugar coating to make sure the character stays interesting and you warm to her.
It did take me a while to get used to Joe, his no commitment view to relationships did make him a bit hard to like. But in a way it worked, it was nice to see some male vulnerability for a change. I liked the way that the book switched from a each character’s point of view. It was a bit confusing in places, but not hard to follow.
I did enjoy this book, and would recommend it as a Must Read for any Freya North fans.
