Lou Clark has a lot of questions. Like how she's ended up working in an airport bar. Why the flat she's owned for a year still doesn't feel like home. Whether her family can forgive her for what she did eighteen months ago. What Lou does know is that something has to change... Then, one night, it does. But does the stranger on her doorstep hold the answers Lou is searching for - or just more questions? Close the door and life continues: simple, ordered, safe. Open it and she risks everything. But Lou once made a promise to live. And if she's going to keep it, she has to invite them in...


Sequels are always tricky, and it’s even harder when you’ve written a beloved romance novel. The previous book took a while to grow on me, and the same can be said of this one. We’re picking up with Louisa as she deals with the fallout of what happened in the previous book and the death of Will. We get to meet new family members and new bosses, as well as reuniting with the old ones, and it’s nice to be in their company again, even though it feels like a sequel that didn’t need to be written. There’s a third book, and I’ll definitely be dipping into that to see what happens next.

Rating: 3 / 5
