Lexie Turner needs to start again, but two years after the death of her husband, Finn, in a surfing accident, she still has no idea where to begin.
Selling the restaurant they ran together in London, Lexie heads to Port Kara on the Cornish Coast to spend the summer working out her next move. In a cottage cut off by the sea at high tide, and with only her beloved Labrador for company, it should be the perfect place to start again. Except life in Port Kara becomes far more complicated when she agrees to help out local man, Elliott Dorton, at his adventure centre, and soon she barely has time to think.
Lexie is content to bury herself in work and rediscovers the passion she used to have for creating unique dishes. Working with Elliott to make the adventure centre a success, they have the opportunity to cater for a showbiz superstar who has just set up home in Port Kara. Discovering they have more in common than she could ever have dreamt, despite the secrets she’s keeping about her past, Lexie realises her feelings for Elliott are in danger of taking her somewhere she never wants to go again. Having already lost her husband because of his attraction to high-adrenaline adventure, the last thing she wants to do is to fall for another man with the same addiction. Especially someone who’s a member of the local lifeboat crew, and whose own safety always comes bottom of the list.
When Elliott puts his life on the line twice within a matter of weeks, Lexie realises that she has to leave Port Kara in order to protect herself from getting in any deeper. But when she’s caught in a life and death situation of her own, she understands for the first time what drives Elliott to do the things he does. Can she save the little boy whose life depends on her and, even if she does, can Elliott find them both in time for Lexie to have the fresh start she so badly wants?
