Can one summer mend a broken heart?
After the tragic loss of their 17-year-old son, journalist Alicia and surgeon Liam struggle to keep their marriage afloat. During their usual holiday to Åland, the Nordic islands where Alicia grew up, the rift between the couple deepens.
Enter tall, blonde Patrick, with the most piercing blue eyes Alicia has ever seen. When Patrick confides in Alicia about the near loss of his daughter and the breakdown of his marriage, Alicia is surprised to feel an affinity with the Swedish reporter. He’s the only person who understands Alicia.
But secrets held by people close to Alicia give her life another surprising turn and she finds there is a reason to live – and love – again.
Helena has very kindly given me a copy of her unpublished short story The Day We Met as a giveaway. Here’s the blurb:
It’s a snowy day at Uppsala University in Sweden where Alicia is studying English. A migraine is threatening to ruin her day, and the last thing she expects is to meet the man of her dreams.
Liam, a recently qualified British doctor is in Uppsala attending a medical conference when a beautiful leggy blonde chooses to sit at the same table as him in the busy student canteen. She’s not the first woman Liam has been attracted to, but there’s something beguiling about this young student and he cannot take his eyes off her.
If you’d like to win, simply tell me the name of your favourite ABBA song in the comments, as one of Helena’s pastimes is dancing to the Fab Four! I’ll pick a winner at random by the end of the day!
Thanks to Anne for having me on this blog tour!
