When her childhood friend, Connor Walsh, returns home to see his ailing father, Emily is elated to be reunited with the handsome man who moved to London so many years ago. But excitement fades to disappointment when he doesn’t remember her—or their first kiss. With her crush on Connor still in full swing, she’s determined to enjoy the short time he’s in Fermosa Bay, even though she knows her heart will break when he returns to his life in London.
When Connor receives news that his biological father is terminally ill, he returns to Fermosa Bay, Australia.
With memories of his childhood tucked fondly in the back of his mind, returning to the small, coastal town leaves him to wonder how life would have been if his mother had never taken him away. Would he have been married and had children? Perhaps with Emily Bradshaw…
Secrets from long ago begin to unfold…
As Connor and his father grow closer, Connor learns his parents have a broken love story of their own. Will the echoes of the past lure him into staying, maybe for good? Or will he relive his parents’ tragic story and flee to London?
Walking away from a real chance at true love…

My Thoughts - Story
I freaking LOVED this story!! What a unique and “outside the box” type of story that held me captivated throughout.
Yes, there were unbelievable moments that I don’t think would ever happen and were a bit exaggerated, but, honestly, I think it put the icing on an otherwise plain cake.
This book has it all…the “awww”, the “pissed off”, the “sobbing” and the “happy” moments all rolled into a sweet and romantic story.
Connor has come back to his past to help his dying father, but what he doesn’t know is that the first years of his life was his happiest spent in this small coastal town. He doesn’t remember his father, his best friends and the girl whose heart was stolen.
As days play out, Connor realizes that what he was told growing up isn’t the truth and starts to question his past, present and future.
This a beautiful and emotional story of finding love again between lost loves, friends and family.
