Pre-order now to be one of the first to read it!Snap up your perfect autumn read from the SUNDAY TIMES bestselling author and 'queen of feel-good fiction'!'Like a little blast of sunshine - uplifting, heartwarming and supremely feelgood' SOPHIE KINSELLA'Gripping and incredibly comforting' MARIAN KEYESThe trouble with secrets is that you can't guess what the consequences will be . . . Lainey has lost everything. Luckily one little fib (OK, quite a big fib) helps nail her dream job.

Soon she's living in a stunning house by the sea, fending off obsessed fans for a retired - if far-from-retiring - actor and organising his charming but chaotic family.

It's definitely worth the challenge of keeping her secret. At least Lainey isn't looking for love. It's time for a break from all that. And yet . . . Seth, the actor's grandson, really is rather attractive.

There's growing chemistry and a definite connection between them.

But how would he react if he knew she hadn't been honest with him?

Lainey's not the only one with a secret, though. Seth has one of his own. And everything's about to start unravelling . . . A beautiful Cornish setting, one chaotic family, and a woman who's had enough of love. Or has she?
