~From the start I found myself connecting with the characters. They were believable and I could imagine them as real people. The two main characters, Ben and Jemina both have underlying secrets and as the book progresses, are hinted at. This made me want to keep reading to find out all the whys and hows .... ... I actually found it rather more upmarket than other chick lit. Yes, it was easy to read but with a great plot, really believable characters and lots of laugh-out-loud moments - I loved it! Jane Lovering is definitely an author on my reading list now - I can't wait for her next book!~ --Belinda, Editor. Families, Vale of York Magazine.
Jemima Hutton is determined to build a successful new life and keep her past a dark secret. Trouble is, her jewellery business looks set to fail - until enigmatic Ben Davies offers to stock her handmade belt buckles in his guitar shop and things start looking up, on all fronts.
But Ben has secrets too. When Jemima finds out he used to be the front man of hugely successful Indie rock band Willow Down, she wants to know more. Why did he desert the band on their US tour? Why is he now a semi-recluse?
And the curiosity is mutual - which means that her own secret is no longer safe ...
