A good archaeologist always finds what he’s digging for…
Mina Winslow buys her ancestral home with plans to restore the house to the beautiful sanctuary it once was, but she soon discovers more than she bargained for when she's reunited with a man from her past. The one man she never stopped longing for.
Renowned archaeologist, Noah Nolan, swore he’d never return to the small town where he spent his adolescence. But his brief stay on the remote island in Lake Michigan becomes complicated when he agrees to complete a short-term excavation project, only to realize the site belongs to the woman who inexplicably rejected him years before. A woman he’s never forgotten – or forgiven.
Now Noah’s affinity for uncovering all things lost, forgotten, and buried stirs Mina’s repressed memories of a terrifying secret, a secret that tore them apart years ago. This time, she must find the courage to unearth the past, or risk losing the treasure of her heart forever.

What readers are saying:
“This book was so good! I didn't think I was going to become obsessed, but I quickly did. I stayed up all night last night to finish it. Every time I put it down, I couldn't stop thinking about the characters. The story is done so well. The plot is never boring. You really grow to care about almost all of the characters. I can't wait till the next book comes out.”
“A beautiful writer and natural storyteller, Olle portrays her characters and their messy, sometimes heartbreaking lives in details that resonate, empower, and excite.”
“While this is a second chance romance, the story delves into family, abuse, betrayal, and finally triumph. It is well written and kept me turning pages till the end. Highly recommend.”
