When Pippa Carmichael inherits a house on a deserted tropical island, it couldn’t have come at a better time for her.
Life’s been tough lately; she’s lost her job, her apartment and her boyfriend and it’s time for Pippa to make a new start.
With three friends, she heads off to Pentecost Island to investigate her inheritance and is delighted to find there is only one other resident on the island.
Author, Rafe Rendell, is not impressed when a boatload of women turns up on his island, interrupting his peaceful writing existence.
He is less impressed when he meets Pippa, the sassy new owner of Ma Carmichael’s sprawling house.
Can these two live in harmony on this small island or will one of them have to leave?
Evie sailed into life at Pentecost Island excited to have a place to belong after ten years of living alone on her boat.
She uses her skills to landscape Ma Carmichael’s Resort and cements her friendship with the girls on the island.
When Jed Stephenson, her brother’s best friend— who also happens to be her ex-husband— turns up on
Pentecost island to convince Evie it is time to go back home to her family, she is faced with a choice that
may mean the difference between life and death for someone she once loved.
Can Jed break though the defences of the woman he has never stopped loving?
Cherry Chilcott is close to achieving her dream of being a top class chef and when she is offered a position
in the restaurant at Pippa Carmichael’s new resort on Pentecost Island it is hard for her to contain her excitement.
That is, until she turns up for her first shift and her dreams turns to dust, and her excitement soon fades
after a screaming match with the knife-wielding head chef.
Angus Alexander is fuming; the position on Pentecost Island is his last shot at making his mark as a top
class chef, and he refuses to have it sabotaged by Cherry, who was responsible for the failure of his last venture.
He'd thought he loved her, but it ended badly—very badly.
Cherry vows to stay calm, ignore Angus Alexander and learn as much as she can.
But can Cherry ignore the sparks that still ignite between them, and can Angus learn to
trust the woman he once loved?

ask Rafe if Odessa can come to Pentecost Island to hasten her recovery, and hopefully restore her confidence. Rafe readily agrees,

to Odessa, help her regain her confidence, or will his determination compromise her recovery?
