It's feast or famine for Philippa, who has returned from her OE to the small town she grew up in. She is being pursued by two men at once: Ben, a determined beekeeper who smells delectably of honey and seems to be Mr Nice Guy personified; and Andrew, who has a dangerous something about him that she just can't resist. But Philippa can't stop thinking about her Crush, the boy she idolised as a girl and never got over, and who may also be returning home . . .
Sean and Gill, Philippa's best friends and allies, help her as much as they can but are embroiled in even deeper troubles of their own. Someone is threatening Sean with serious harm, and Gill's attempts to spice up her foundering marriage could well end up destroying it – and her.
This is a small town with a dark underbelly, where love comes hand-in-hand with danger.
