Believing her marriage to Joe is over, Evie finds refuge in the wilds of Cornwall. She falls under the spell of hot rock singer Jake, who tempts her with the promise of a sexy new life in the sun.
Meanwhile, Joe is spurred into action to win her back. He battles through the worst weather the UK has seen in years, to drive the length of the country. But has he left it too late to persuade Evie he loves her? Or will Jake sweep her off her feet before Joe can reach her?
When she isn’t escaping somewhere else in her imagination, Sue Lilley lives in the north east of England, a few miles from the stunning Northumberland coastline and the famous Alnwick Castle, last seen in Downton Abbey and the Harry Potter movies. She loves getting lost in a page-turning story and because she can never put a good book down, she is compiling the definitive list of perfect excuses for being late for work. She wrote as a hobby for years before publishing her novels – ANOTHER SUMMER and HIGH HOPES. She is the woman talking to herself on the bus, scribbling ideas on scraps of paper with a purple pen. She’s been married to Michael, an artist and fellow creative spirit, for more years than they’re brave enough to count. They have one daughter and a beautiful new baby granddaughter, which makes them sound very grown-up.
