Back in Calingarry Crossing to sell the family pub, Maggie Lindeman has no idea a perfect storm is heading her way until her past and present collide with the unexpected.

Maggie once had a crush on Dan Ireland, now a work-weary police crash investigator, still hell-bent on punishing himself for his misspent youth. Dan has ample reason for not going home to Calingarry Crossing for the school reunion, but one very good reason why he should.

Maggie is dealing with a restless seventeen-year-old son, a father with dementia, a fame-obsessed musician husband, a dwindling bank account and a country pub that just won’t sell.

The last thing she needs is a surprise houseguest for the summer. Fiona Bailey-Blair, daughter of an old friend and spoilt with everything but the truth, whips up a maelstrom of gossip when she blows into town.

This storm season, when a school reunion brings home more than memories, Maggie Lindeman will discover there’s no keeping a lid on some secrets.

About the Author

Quitting the chaos of corporate communications in Sydney to buy a little café in a small town was like coming home for Jenn J Mcleod. She now spends her days running a unique, dog friendly on her NSW property and writing contemporary Australian fiction – small town stories about living, laughing and reconnecting with country life. Jenn’s first novel, A House for all Seasons, was enthusiastically received by readers and reviewers alike, and she is currently writing her third novel, Season of Shadow and Light, which will be published by Simon and Schuster Australia in 2015.
