A pitch-perfect new rural romance from the bestselling author of Once Burnt, Twice Shy.

'A story of faith, courage, strength and future prospects ... a sizzling summer read.'
Mrs B's Book Reviews on Once Burnt, Twice Shy

When a drought dries up the contents of a dam on her uncle's property, investigative journalist Phillipa 'Pip' Davenport is astonished at what she finds.

On a deadline and with a severe case of writers' block, Pip turns away from her immediate interest in the waterhole's contents. However, the universe and her neighbour seem to have other ideas. And then there's the mysterious detective assigned to the case who Pip is beginning to find very distracting.

When the only person of interest is a local ninety-eight-year-old war veteran, Pip feels drawn back to the case despite her crazy schedule. But how often does a cold case murder land on your doorstep?

More questions arise as long-buried secrets suddenly emerge with some hard truths for the little town to face. Meanwhile, Pip finds that she must also face her past in order to see the truth clearly.
