Escape to the Country: Life Support (Book #3)
A piece of you will always be left at home.
When emergency nurse Emma Chirnside’s husband dies unexpectedly, she finds herself tangled in lies and secrets. The last thing she expected to receive from him was a heritage listed mansion in her home town of Birrangulla, but with her in-laws causing chaos, she flees to the country, hoping to rebuild her life. Fleeing, it turns out, creates new complications. The estate manager is none other than her teenage crush Tom Henderson.
Tom hasn’t thought about Emma since high school. They’d always been friendly – like Emma, Tom knows how it feels to care for a sick mother from a young age – but as far as Tom was aware, they were nothing more than friends. He had no idea of Emma’s feelings for him, or the way he’d once broken her heart.
When their worlds collide again, Emma realizes the depth of her feelings for Tom, and wonders if she’s been given another chance to find true love. But Tom has demons of his own.
Will Tom’s secrets drive them apart and break her heart again? Or will they both get their happy ever after?
“You will need tissues reading this book – Nicki has outdone herself. It took me just over 6 hours to read from cover to cover. It was very beautifully written: I loved both Tom and Emma and their relationships, the ups and downs, twists and turns.” (Samantha, GoodReads)
