Publisher's Summary

A long-forgotten secret, a scandalous attraction and a place where two women's lives are changed forever.

1926: Violet Armstrong is one of the few remaining members of staff working at the grand Evergreen Spa Hotel as it closes down over winter. Only a handful of guests are left, including the heir to a rich grazing family, his sister and her suave suitor. When a snowstorm moves in, the hotel is cut off and they are all trapped. No-one could have predicted what would unfold.

2014: after years of putting her sick brother's needs before her own, Lauren Beck leaves her home and takes a job at a Blue Mountains cafe, the first stage of the Evergreen Spa Hotel's renovations. There she meets Tomas, the Danish architect who is overseeing the project, and an attraction begins to grow. In a wing of the old hotel, Lauren finds a series of passionate love letters dated back to 1926, alluding to an affair - and a shocking secret. If she can unravel this long-ago mystery, will it make Lauren brave enough to take a risk and change everything in her own life?

Inspired by elements of her grandmother's life, a rich and satisfying tale of intrigue, heartbreak and love from the author of the best-selling Lighthouse Bay and Wildflower Hill.

Entertaining but could’ve been better

I’m a fan of Kimberley freeman and have thoroughly enjoyed several of her books. This one was still entertaining but there was a bit of depth lacking from the characters. I also think the narrator was a bit off with her delivery with some of the characters. Made them sound more superficial than I think they were meant to be. Overall I enjoyed it enough that I wanted to finish the story but it definitely left me a bit dissatisfied

Another captivating, can't put down book with smooth transitions between eras. The narrator was amazing and really brought the book alive.

Don’t waste your time!

I do not recommend this book, one star because there is nothing less to rate. Over written, what I imagine to be a Mills and Boon.
