After years of trying unsuccessfully to conceive a child, Gemma Walsh finds her husband in bed with another woman. Unable to face his betrayal, she retreats to Priest Lake where her family owns a small cabin. But Gemma finds that she is not the only one hiding away at the lake to avoid an ugly truth.
Andrew Monroe was once an essential part of Gemma’s life but tragedy and misunderstanding shattered their bond, separating them. Now twenty years later, Gemma questions the coincidence of their newly intersected paths as she struggles to resist the sparks that ignite between them.
Just when Gemma feels that she has found her second chance at happiness, she is faced with a shocking truth as her reality spirals out of control. She can’t deny the powerful force that brought Andrew back into her life anymore than she can defy the same force that now threatens to pull them apart.
An emotionally-charged, heart-rending story that will leave you to question the freedom in truth and the existence of fate in its deepest sense.
Today’s book is a romance with a misleading plot twist I was NOT expecting at all, which can also be counted as a “life lesson”.
I truly did enjoy the story, from the very beginning till the ending. The relationship in the novel dynamics between past and present. There were secrets, Drama and big life decisions. I enjoy angsty and emotional stories (I LIVE for those).
When Gemma finds her husband Ryan in their bed with another woman, she runs! After an accident with a deer, she arrives at her childhood holiday home (or appears to! see, this where the plot twist starts) and is happy to find her childhood’s besty (who also happened to be her first love) Andrew is spending the summer on the lake. Three blissful months passes by and life finally catches up with them. Gemma is forced to face why she ran away in the first place (a long kept secret that could destroy her love for Andrew) and Drew‘s real reason for running away from life for a while.
So what will Gemma do? Well I’m definitely not going to tell lol. What happens with Andrew and Ryan? What kind of secrets are there? And How will it all end? it’s your turn to find out.
