The latest novel from Australia's most popular, and award-winning romantic suspense writer, Helene Young. Photojournalist Ellie Wilding has been running from her past, but when the residents of Half Moon Bay call for help she knows it's finally time to return home.

International photojournalist Ellie Wilding has been running from her past, but when the residents of her home town call for help she knows it's time to stop.

Nicholas Lawson walked away from his military career leaving unfinished business. In sleepy Half Moon Bay, that decision returns to haunt him. He remembers all too vividly his last assignment in Afghanistan when Ellie's sister was shot and killed. Ellie's been in his dreams ever since, even if she doesn't remember him . . .

As a storm rages and floodwaters rise, Ellie struggles to save her community. But who can she trust? The dangerously attractive stranger with secrets, or an old friend who's never let her down?
