Picking up from where The Fallout from Shadows left off, Linda Craig-Green is torn between two possible futures: a peaceful life in England with a man she admires or a passionate life abroad with the man she loves. Desperately afraid of making the wrong decision, she takes a holiday to an Australian island resort in the hope that distance will bring her the clarity she needs. But far from being the idyll she expected, the resort—filled with guests that have their own demons and difficulties to confront—soon becomes the backdrop for tragedy, murder and more. On Fortuitous Island, Linda meets up again with Detective Inspector Gareth Wainwright, now retired, who joins forces with local Detective Inspector Douglas White to solve not one but two major crimes. And Linda finally finds the courage to make her decision.

In the sequel to Wedding Day, Sandy Gent takes up the threads of her much-loved characters’ lives as they deal with the fallout from two extraordinary deaths – one a tragic accident, the other a kind of justice. Bestselling author Rob may have found a way to get over the death of his wife, while Sylvia has been liberated from her overbearing husband, and Rebecca is finally united with the love of her life. But hidden within the beautiful Cotswold countryside, forces are at work that threaten to shatter their hard-won happiness. And when a body is found in a local river, Detective Inspector Gareth Wainwright, just weeks from retirement, finds his final case will push him to the edge. As The Fallout from Shadows lures these characters to its gripping climax, one thing is certain: if they survive, none of them will ever be the same.

Will he solve the crime? Will Lucinda cope? And will some of the guests find that sometimes, someone else's day can change your tomorrow?
