He lurks behind the counter in a run-down Edinburgh cafe
… and he’s the last person they want Rosy to meet.
Say hello to Frank. Say hello to a fast-paced, darkly sparkling mystery with no sleuths, no detectives and (almost) no dead bodies.
A beautiful student discovers her beastly dad
Career-obsessed Rosy has mapped out her future. She’s even picked the biotech company she’ll join after she graduates. She has nothing but contempt for Frank, her absentee father, the murderer’s son, the beast who raped her mother when they were both still in school.
Rosy, though, can’t control all the variables and when boyfriend trouble upsets her plans for the summer, she almost meets Frank. The close encounter coaxes her to pay a visit to the dingy cafe where he works and there she finds a man who doesn’t seem quite the monster she’s been told about. Soon, Rosy has wangled what she thinks will be an easy job—to transform the cafe and rescue it from closure. She’s yet to become acquainted with the real Frank.
Because Frank is hiding things. Terrible things. There are reasons Rosy’s stepdad and even Frank’s own mother despise him, reasons her mother left the mesmerising Frank and never wants him back. And Rosy has secrets of her own. A battle of wills becomes a quest for truth in a summer where Rosy must learn learn that love costs—but so does walking away.
