Everything can change in a hearbeat...
Amber messed up. She took something that wasn't hers. She never intended for anyone to die.
Now she struggles through each day with a secret that no one must ever know.
But when Amber finds herself in the arms of her dead brother's best friend, she believes she's found someone who needs her as much as she needs him.
Only that's where the trouble really starts: if escape is what she's looking for, she'll have to think again.
"It is the diversity and scope that gives this novel its edge and Farrer captures perfectly the way events can so easily spiral." Jade Craddock, The Bookseller April 2015
