Laura MacLeod doesn’t need an intervention to know she’s in trouble. A paediatric nurse on an oncology ward, she has seen her share of suffering. But when tragedy touches her personally, she falls apart and accepts help in the form of pain killers. She becomes rapidly addicted, and her downward spiral is humiliating as well as life-changing. Fresh from rehab, she travels to the Okanagan Valley, where she has agreed to perform menial work at a winery for several months.
F-18 fighter pilot Bradley Jamieson has witnessed the horrors of war in Afghanistan, resulting in the loss of his ability to speak. Weary from the aftermath of war, he accepts his friend’s invitation to visit his winery. Unable to understand how a beautiful woman like Laura could throw away her life by taking drugs, he is determined to avoid her. But the more he sees of this gentle woman, the more he’s attracted to her.
The summer sun isn’t the only thing generating heat in the valley. Laura and Bradley battle their their growing attraction for one another while fighting their inner demons. Can these two troubled souls find the peace they desire, or will reality bring them crashing back down to earth?
"The romance between them was good, no stupid misunderstandings that got in the way - I get tired of those. The book had me smiling in places, and wanting to cry in others. That's a good sign for me."
"I liked this story. The two primary characters were well developed - likeable, and down-to-earth with baggage that could belong to anyone you know. I especially liked the way the author took the time to give enough background for the reader to see just how easy it is to fall into the grips of addiction or depression."
"Mona Ingram writes a beautiful tale of love and redemption. I started this book and couldn't stop reading until I finished. I found myself falling in love with both main characters. Ingram does a superb job of creating two imperfect people the reader cannot help but care about. The story is well-crafted, the writing clean, the descriptions of the countryside absolutely perfect. I want to visit that winery! I've been a fan of Ingram for some time, but I will definitely be reading more of her work."
