As they work together to console Niamh and get her home safely, Tim and Harriet become increasingly attracted to each other.
But with attraction comes guilt.
Can they overcome their respective loyalties and give in to love?
I haven’t read any previous books by this author but that will definitely change after reading this novella! It is the second book in the Trewton Royd series but I haven’t read the first and it read fine to me as a stand alone.
The plot for the story was very good, I thoroughly enjoyed it and the characters were great. The story flowed really well and at just under 140 pages, I started and finished it the same afternoon.
The story is not just a quick chick lit read it is quite emotional at times and has some real added depth that made it stand out for me.
4.5 stars from me for this one which I have rounded up to 5 stars for Goodreads and Amazon- it is a really enjoyable story and I now need to read the first in the series!
