An irresistible festive treat from million-copy bestseller Amanda Prowse.

Amanda Prowse is the author of The Light in the Hallway and the no.1 bestsellers Perfect Daughter, My Husband's Wife and What Have I Done?

Can you ever find love twice?

Bea doesn't believe in second chances. As a widow, she feels like she will be alone forever. She buries her grief in hard work, and soon the deli she runs in Sydney, Australia, has a reputation for the best carrot cake in town.

But then an email from a cafe-owner in Edinburgh leads her to take a trip to Scotland in the depths of winter. There, transported by the twinkling lights and falling snow of a traditional Christmas, Bea is drawn back to a secret past – and a secret love – that she has long ago tried to forget...
