About the Book
Every choice carries a price as Abby discovers when she marries Joel. If she had known when Joel first walked into Clancy’s what lay in store, she would have stopped the relationship before it got started. However, by the time she found out it was too late. The choice was made. Or so she thought.

But then between her and her one friend in Astley, Laila, they arrive at solution that could benefit Abby and the small county town. A deliberately lit fire and an unplanned pregnancy threaten to bring their carefully laid plans and Abby's dreams undone. Problems of some newcomers to the town impinge on Abby's life too, but it is the arrival of an old resident of Astley that could end up destroying everything and not just for Abby.

Who else's lives will be affected and changed forever. Will the unwelcome arrivals in Astley destroy everything Abby and Laila have worked to achieve? What is the secret that will have all of Astley reeling?

First of all my apologies for not posting here for the last few weeks. I have been concentrating on getting my current manuscript finished and one way to be able to do that is not spend so much time on the internet.

However, can't resist sharing this book with you which I read when it was first released. Don't miss this book! A really good read.


  1. A few years now since read it and just wish had been home and able to chat more about your book, Dale.

  2. I didn't know about Dale's interesting background before, Mary. She's been a very busy lady. I read her book a couple of yeas ago. I know what you mean about catching up on F/book when you should be working on your M/S!
