Waterstones Says

When fate throws a trio of emotionally damaged individuals together, they begin to find ways of lowering their barriers in this moving, heartwarming read perfect for fans of Jojo Moyes and Cecelia Ahern.

What are you most afraid of . . . ?

Gemma is terrified of slowing down, because if she does, she'll have to admit how lonely she's felt since losing the love of her life. So she fills her days with work and taking her dog, Bear, to comfort young patients at the local hospital.

Dan is scared of anyone getting to know the real him. He's the life and soul of every party, but he's certain that if people find out what he's done, everything will fall apart. Casey is Dan's twelve-year-old daughter - though they barely know each other. She's starting four weeks of treatment for a benign tumour, and is scared this summer could be her last.

When Gemma, Dan and Casey meet one scorching July, the connection is instant. Yet they're all used to protecting themselves from heartbreak by keeping their distance. Now that fate - and a small, scruffy terrier - have brought them together, can they find the courage to connect?
