About the author
Michele Campbell is a graduate of Harvard University and Stanford Law School. She worked at a prestigious Manhattan law firm before spending eight years fighting crime in NYC as a federal prosecutor. Her debut novel It’s Always the Husband was a Sunday Times top ten bestseller.
Tabitha Girard, the heroine of this fast-moving if farfetched romantic thriller from Campbell (A Stranger on the Beach), gets a second chance at love when fate brings gorgeous Connor Ford back to their New Hampshire hometown after a summer fling 13 years earlier when they were teens. Their lives have since taken opposite trajectories: Tabitha's barely making ends meet waitressing after divorcing her abusive husband, while Connor has married a much older widow, heiress Nina Levitt. And yet, he manages to persuade her they're destined to be together, if only he can somehow wriggle out of his marriage without triggering the draconian prenup. Things quickly turn dicey as Nina smells a murder plot, Connor blows alternately hot and cold, and even a trusting soul like Tabitha starts to suspect that Mr. Wonderful just might be setting her up. Campbell shifts the action among dazzling locations ranging from Nina's oceanfront Southampton estate to Dubai, but without significantly deepening the characters. For those craving sudsy escapism, this page-turner is poolside ready.
