Behind every secret is a chance for something true.
Zoe Bailey's transient childhood left her with a passport full of stamps, an ambiguous accent, and nowhere to call home. And as a grown-up, her career at a relentlessly slick London PR firm has been half-hearted at best - until she travels on assignment to Lillavik as a not-quite-legit wildlife volunteer.
The tiny Swedish village holds a smorgasbord of secrets...and Jakob Westermark. Aloof and wild, like the wolves he studies, Jakob has good reason for keeping his distance. But when Zoe finds herself drawn to him, the temptation to mix pleasure with business is too strong to resist.
Then Jakob's wolves are threatened, and suspicion turns her way. With more to lose than she ever imagined, Zoe sets out to untangle the hidden threads running through Lillavik...and maybe, finally, find her own true north.
