What if spending 24 hours with a stranger on the other side of the world changed everything?
Melbourne-based court reporter Isobel meets an enigmatic journalist at a law and journalism event in London. Unlucky-in-love Isobel thinks she’s going to have a one-night stand with the handsome stranger and never see him again, but the night takes them to unexpected places. There’s a connection between them but only a tiny problem: they live 16,000 kilometres apart. Isobel steps on the plane back home, determined to forget about the stranger, until a case she’s reporting on sends her back to the other side of the globe. Can a seemingly charming European town have poisoned roots and people with murderous intentions? Overnight Isobel is thrown into a world of murder, corruption and nefarious dealings, which she must navigate while trying to figure out her feelings for the man she’s started to fall for.
