Publisher's Summary

Face her demons? Or run?

After being double-crossed by a devious colleague, career woman Ellie Conlan quits her job on principle. With no idea what to do next, she retreats to Storm Harbour, an idyllic Victorian beach town. 

Ellie's grandfather runs The Storm Harbour Chronicle, the trusted local newspaper. As Ellie is drawn into a story about a development which could split the coastal community - and involves her with the influential O'Neill family - an event she has long suppressed threatens to overwhelm her.

Dark clouds gather as rumours fly and tensions mount. And when a violent storm breaks and rages, Ellie will finally have to confront her past.

"There's no denying the beauty and opulence of Morrissey's rendering of place. She is a master of the genre." (Weekend Australian)

Not her usual standard

Slow to start, storyline a bit corny in places and almost childish in places. Very disappointed. I do not recommend.
