But soon after, Mikaela and her fiancé are in a tragic car accident, resulting in her husband-to-be’s death. Then when Mikaela’s grandmother loses her life in a hiking accident one year later, an old man gives Mikaela another mysterious blue card at the funeral. After the service, Mikaela’s grandfather asks that she oversee the renovations on his bed & breakfast in New Zealand. When she arrives, Mikaela meets Tui Davies—the inn’s manager—and Brentin Williams, the man Tui expects her daughter to marry. Tui helps Mikaela retrieve a doll from the cellar vault, but the doll turns out to be an evil omen that Mikaela is told she must get rid of before someone is murdered. Meanwhile, the old man from the funeral is bent on revenge and is plotting against everyone who has ever wronged him, and Mikaela is next in line. But until she discovers the killer’s contact in New Zealand, whom can she trust? And while Brentin attempts to help Mikaela overcome her grief, she must decide—is she ready to love again?

Watch for my upcoming review!

Genre: Romance

Pages: 675

Format/s Available: Paperback, E-Book

Publication Date: 29/07/2016

Cover Blurb:

Growing up in the early 70’s, Chloe at nearly sixteen already towers over most of the boys she meets. Finding love is never going to be easy, particularly when you’re the only daughter of typically over-bearing parents and struggling to adapt as the new girl in town. To make matters worse, she has to deal with Jenna and her ‘hair and makeup friends’, whose sole purpose in life seems to be making fun of Chloe’s ‘bean-pole’ legs and her obvious naivety.

Thank goodness for friends like Helen, Ollie and Rosie, and for the kind-hearted baker, Arthur, who’s always on hand with some words of wisdom, especially when a terrible tragedy strikes the small group of friends. However, when Helen starts to date an older boy, the intense but boyish Ben Challenger, Chloe’s friendships will be stretched to the limit as she starts to wonder whether Ben’s really interested in Helen at all, or whether it could be Chloe herself who Ben desires.
