By Maggie McIntyre
Passion and healing for a broken heart in a Welsh forest.
Do opposites attract? Well, perhaps not always!
Dynamic and driven, charity director Bel Bridgford planned to write a ground-breaking book on Climate Change until a ten-ton truck smashed into her little car and destroyed it, almost killing her in the process.
She retreats with her broken bones to a remote cottage in Wales and is forced to hire a personal caregiver for a long summer of recovery and rehabilitation. The young woman who answers the advert is Bryony Morris, a final year medical student from London, clever, cautious, and used to hiding her feelings.
Thrown together and alone for most of the time, the two women move on from initial dislike to explore their complicated relationship as they work together on the book.
But Bel is still heartbroken after the murder of her fiancée two years previously, and Bryony is focused on how to split up from her boyfriend without losing his friendship. Neither of them expects to fall in love.
As the sparks fly and then turn into an ever more fiercely burning fire of sexual attraction, can either of them survive the summer without breaking the other’s heart? This is a contemporary, passionate story about real women exploring what it truly means to fall in love.
