The breakdown of any relationship can be devastating. For me, it’s life changing.
My name is Hannah May, and I’m leaving London and everyone I love in pursuit of something more.
A major job opportunity has landed on my lap. The timing couldn’t be better, and the location means a fresh start in a new country. Australia.
My flight to the other side of the world is made with just one promise to myself.
This journey is about me.
My life, my career, my heart.
Never again will I fall so quickly…

I have demons to fight. Losing my wife in the way I did, is just one of them.
My name is Daniel Grant, Executive Director at one of Australia’s biggest construction companies and the gossip columns favourite piece of meat.
I’ve made so many mistakes, more than I care to admit.
The next woman I let into my life will be the right one.
The next woman will be Hannah May.

Lynda’s Review


I fell in love with the nationality difference between Hannah and Daniel. Hannah being English and Daniel being Aussie. The dialogue difference is great to read.

I can’t quite pinpoint what felt off for me in the story. It wasn’t a lack of chemistry between Daniel and Hannah, maybe it was the seemingly instant connection and willingness to disregard things and allow secrets to be kept.

The communication between Daniel and Hannah just doesn’t seem to exist to well which makes the story fall a little flat for me. While Hannah absolutely deserves the truths she gets pushy when she knows she shouldn’t then seems to manipulate Daniel into being sorry for his reaction. But she keeps things from him and thinks that’s okay.

I felt let down by the lack of climax involving Freya. I felt her part of the story could have made it much more intense but it was like a flick of the switch and she pulled her head in.

While the story line is fun I just didn’t connect with it or the characters.



By day, this ordinary wife and mother plays the role of taxi driver, cook and chief bottle washer to her husband and four children. By night, she writes under the pen name Loriana Cappello to keep her real and writing world separate. She likes nothing more than to lose herself in the depths of her imagination by writing or reading a good book.
