Abigail Returns Romantic suspense romance mystery The Maren Bay Series Book One


The blurb…

With just over a decade missing to Dissociative Amnesia, and a newly broken heart, Abigail finds herself with no choice but to return to Lochside. The supposedly idyllic home on the Isle of Skye she had fled so dramatically six years before.

And while struggling to find her way in a world she can’t recall, she must battle the conflicts of the present with the shocking secrets she uncovers from her past.

Jamie’s support is invaluable, but how much does he know? Greg is loving and attentive, but does he have an ulterior motive?

Meanwhile, the presence of a stranger on the island shakes Abigail to her very core. With no memory, she can only trust her instincts as she strives to build a life and a future she can call her own.

But Abigail soon discovers the stranger’s trail leads far too close to home.

A riveting novel about new beginnings and second chances.

Right from the start I was completely captured by the life of Abigail and what had happened to make her leave her home in Sky and what pulled her back. Could completely imagine the scenes sitting on the jetty trying to make her choices. Really liked the relationship with Jamie and couldn’t wait to find out what was to become of it.
