Josie Harris always drew comfort from the thought that she lived a
charmed life. Unexciting, perhaps, but stable and predictable. In a
rut? Josie counted that as luck - at least she knew what would happen
next. Then disaster struck. Her parents moved across the country, she
lost her job and, worst of all - after more than forty years of
marriage, her father announced he was leaving her mother. Some local
hussy had lured him away! Josie knew it was time for her to become
involved. So she drove across to the Sunshine Coast and was soon
immersed in a new job, new community, and a totally unexpected love.

towards McKee was affecting Kari's reporting and jeopardizing her job.
Worse, the desire that exploded every time they met was disturbing. As
scandal swirled around her, Kari began a desperate search for the
truth about her dead husband.
