Allegra Fisher lives for her career. She works all the hours she can only taking time out to visit her sister or her mum. No man deserves her time unless he can improve her profit margin. When she meets Sam Kemp on a business flight she gives in to her basic needs with no intention of ever seeing him again, only to find out his is to work alongside her.
The town of Zermatt in Switzerland, holds more secrets than anyone realises. When their lives become entangled again Allegra finds that she must keep her head both professionally and personally around Sam or she could lose her heart. Trust versus loyalty. Who do you trust? Who should you be loyal to?
Having to deal with arrogant men on a daily basis and being disappointed by men in the past, Allegra Fisher does not trust easily. When Sam enters her world both personally and professionally she finds that the two worlds collide and not in a happy way. Secrets are being kept and Allegra does all she can to find out the answers. Her character is jaded and filled with mistrust but through the course of the story she has to learn to let go and trust in herself.
This is almost like two books mixed into one. The story around Sam and her work makes for an exciting read and a good story in itself. When you then mix in the story about her grandmother and the whole incident relating to her family in Switzerland, which again could be a book by itself, you have an intriguing and thought-provoking story. The relationship between Allegra and her sister Isobel is lovely. After everything they have been through they know that they still have each other. Their mother has Alzheimer’s and I found that this was written in well and conveyed the effects that the disease can have on the family.
A beautiful story set mostly in the picturesque background of the Swiss Alps with secrets revealed and love conquering all.
