Publisher's Summary

A long-forgotten secret, a scandalous attraction and a place where two women's lives are changed forever.

1926: Violet Armstrong is one of the few remaining members of staff working at the grand Evergreen Spa Hotel as it closes down over winter. Only a handful of guests are left, including the heir to a rich grazing family, his sister and her suave suitor. When a snowstorm moves in, the hotel is cut off and they are all trapped. No-one could have predicted what would unfold.

2014: after years of putting her sick brother's needs before her own, Lauren Beck leaves her home and takes a job at a Blue Mountains cafe, the first stage of the Evergreen Spa Hotel's renovations. There she meets Tomas, the Danish architect who is overseeing the project, and an attraction begins to grow. In a wing of the old hotel, Lauren finds a series of passionate love letters dated back to 1926, alluding to an affair - and a shocking secret. If she can unravel this long-ago mystery, will it make Lauren brave enough to take a risk and change everything in her own life?

Inspired by elements of her grandmother's life, a rich and satisfying tale of intrigue, heartbreak and love from the author of the best-selling Lighthouse Bay and Wildflower Hill.

Don’t waste your time!

I do not recommend this book, one star because there is nothing less to rate. Over written, what I imagine to be a Mills and Boon.

Soooo Boring

I just finished Stars Across the Ocean and loved it!! So I thought I would enjoy this one as well. I am more than half way through this book and am bored to tears. Nothing much has really happened except the main characters have a lot of sex and he is high on opium all the time. I will be returning this one. So disappointed...

Really great read

Just getting in to this author’s books, always been a fan of Kate Morton and these are very similar in their subject and character detail. I listen to dozens of audiobooks a month doing about 8,000+ miles in my car for work and having a great story like this one makes it go by much quicker.

Entertaining but could’ve been better

I’m a fan of Kimberley freeman and have thoroughly enjoyed several of her books. This one was still entertaining but there was a bit of depth lacking from the characters. I also think the narrator was a bit off with her delivery with some of the characters. Made them sound more superficial than I think they were meant to be. Overall I enjoyed it enough that I wanted to finish the story but it definitely left me a bit dissatisfied

Tried another one by this author after long absenc

but the smut, vulgarity, and pornography continue by this author. I have tried her books at different times in the past and didn't write a review or returned the book, but now I've written reviews for all of the ones I've tried and they are all the same. I fast-forwarded through most of this one and jumped to the end. Incredibly ridiculous to waste a credit on that. Better descriptions need to be presented so one has a better idea what they are renting. I will definitely put this disgusting author's trash on my NEVER AGAIN list. How perverted she must be in her head to write this garbage in the first place.

Very well narrated!

Her books all follow the same theme but they’re well written. Enjoyable story, and very well narrated.

not the best Kimberley Freeman book

I've read quite a few of Kimberley Freeman's book and was looking forward to this one. However, although it was okish I found the story line boring and was certainly not invested in any of the characters. I thought Lauren was a very weak character and the flash backs to 1926 weren't as riveting as when Freeman has done this in her other books. Violet was as you would expect for a girl of her era and her story has been told many times before in various books. I was quite surprised I was on part 2 of the audible book as really nothing much had happened for the book to be nearing its end! Very disappointing.
