An old flame. A new spark. Love can find you in the most unlikely places . . .

At only twenty, Tara Tremain has everything: she’s a trainee doctor, engaged to the man of her dreams – Alex, a passionate American biology student. But just when life seems perfect, Alex betrays her in the worst way possible.

Ten years later, she’s moved on – with a successful career, good friends and a man who loves her. But when she’s pulled back into her wealthy family’s orbit for a party in the heart of Costa Rica, she’s flung into a crisis: a child is desperately ill and the only treatment is several days’ trek away, deep in the jungle.

There's only one person who can help – but can she trust the man who broke her heart?

Your Costa Rican adventure awaits . . .

'So detailed and real that I started itching with imaginary insect bites!'
