About the Author
Annie Seaton lives near the beach on the mid-north coast of New South Wales. Her career and studies have spanned the education sector for most of her working life, including a Masters Degree in Education, and working as an academic research librarian, a high school principal and a university tutor until she took early retirement and fulfilled a lifelong dream of a full-time writing career. Since 2014 Annie has been voted Author of the Year (2014) and Best Established Author (2015 and 2017) in the AusRom Today.com Reader's Choice Awards. In 2018 Whitsunday Dawn was voted Book of the Year by AusRom readers, and also finalled in the ARRA Romantic Suspense book of the year awards.
Each winter, Annie and her husband leave the beach to roam the remote areas of Australia for story ideas and research. In 2016 they visited the Undara lava tubes. The Undara lava tubes stretch for 160 kilometres—indeed Undara is an Aboriginal word for ‘a long way'. Ancient roof collapses have formed a network of caves where plants and wildlife thrive in unique ecosystems. This fascinating geological marvel inspired Undara, and the story of Emlyn Rees, and the Carlyle family.

Second, Annie’s story of family, love, conflict and War has all the hallmarks of her rigorous research and beautiful storytelling that I always look forward to and am never disappointed by. Thank you Annie.
Annie Seaton tells a timely tale of corporate greed, adventure and romance. Her love for the Whitsunday area comes through loud and clear, and, having visited the area myself, her descriptions of the beauty of the islands is precise and accurate. A first rate read.
As she is slowly drawn to the beauty around her and to local jack of all trades called Flynn, who seems to pop up everywhere around her, they start to realise that the knowledge Olivia has about the company has placed them both in danger.
I really enjoyed this book, especially as my favourite romantic suspense theme is when two people are attracted to each other (even though they don’t think they are) and work together for a common goal, with no relationship angst!
This novel also has a parallel storyline running set in the early years of the Second World War involving local identity Auntie Tat, who is succumbing to dementia and thinks that Olivia is her long lost sister Lilian. Both story lines where very well done and I loved how it all came together at the end.
A very enjoyable read and thank you to Netgalley and the Publisher for an ARC copy to read.
