Belle Hamilton is a romantic at heart. She’s engaged to the love of her life and dreams of marriage, children and a happily ever after. Belle’s world is close to perfect until one afternoon she makes a decision she can’t take back.
In the blink of an eye, Belle’s life spirals out of control. She loses everything that is dear to her and is forced to flee to the other side of the world where she meets Andrea, a local bartender from Rome, and develops an unexpected connection with him.
Can they break through the complications of past hurts and a long-distance relationship to make it work or will one terrifying night in Paris end it before it had a chance to begin?
Belle put the kettle on and popped two aspirin from a blister pack, downing them with a gulp of water. She fixed herself a strong cup of coffee and sank into a chair on her balcony. The autumn sun was warm on her feet as she glanced down at the bustling bohemia of Darling Street.
A magnificent March day was dawning; the sun bright but not too hot, the breeze soft and gentle as it rippled through the crepe myrtle trees below. She watched as people flocked to St Andrews Church where the Balmain markets were springing to life.
St Andrews Church. It was where she’d wanted to marry Ben—lovely and old, a small, modest church tucked away in a pocket of Darling Street. Ben hadn’t been keen on it. He’d wanted a lavish ceremony at St Mary’s Cathedral in the city, with its tall spires and impressive location.
It hadn’t mattered in any case because they’d yet to set a date. It wasn’t for her lack of wanting. She’d broached the idea many times with him but he’d always said soon. He just needed to finish a difficult case or get through a tricky trial or save a bit more money. Her misplaced faith in him had served only to disguise her naivety. For perhaps Ben hadn’t been waiting for anything. Perhaps Ben had been having second thoughts.
She set her coffee down on the floor and closed her eyes, her head swimming with all the conversations, all the moments in her relationship she was now seeing through a different set of eyes. It was as if someone had suddenly turned on the lights. With everything so much brighter though, how come it felt like she was still standing in the dark?
