Amelia O’Sullivan is a photographer who has always viewed herself through the wrong lens. When her marriage publicly crashes around her, she flees to the safety of her aunt’s country property to pick up the pieces. Can she adjust her focus to what she really wants from her life? Born into a wealthy and powerful family, Frederick Doyle may seem like a man who has it all, but behind the scenes, a bitter business feud threatens an irrevocable family split. As he fights for control of the winery he’d built from the ground up, he finds a supportive ally in Amelia and becomes increasingly beguiled by her creative spirit. Jill McMahon is a successful novelist suffering from writer’s block over her latest manuscript. Finding her niece, Amelia, at her door, reminds her of the bonds of family, but in seeing Amelia and Frederick’s relationship grow, a long-forgotten and painful secret threatens to re-surface. Can Amelia, Frederick and Jill untangle themselves from their pasts or will history simply repeat itself?
An old and a new love story … what is not to love about that? But there is more. It’s also about standing up for yourself and going for the life you want to live instead of constantly coming second. Family, money, lies, betrayal, manipulation add pizzazz to an already beautiful and fluently written tale and lift it to an even higher level.
This book reminded me of tv series like Dynasty which I totally loved by the way.
The author takes us to Australia where she introduces us to the main characters : Amelia, Frederick and Jill.
Will Amelia blossom or crash and burn? Will Frederik go after what he wants and succeed? Can Jill come to terms with the past and start looking ahead?
These questions will all be answered in this very entertaining novel.
