In the space of three days, Campbell O’Connor’s world is thrown upside down.
Cam never pictured himself as a father, but when he opens the door to find a baby on his doorstep, and no mother in sight, he doesn't have a choice. His apartment is already packed, ready for his move back to his hometown of Allenby so he can care for his grandmother who is fighting a battle with dementia. The transfer to his new station is already in place, and now he has to factor a one year old into the mix. But the fact that he has zero experience with babies doesn't deter Cam. He’s a man of honour and he’ll care for his son without hesitation. It’s the same with his gran. She’d raised him from the age of four and now it was his turn to care for her, but will the disease that has ravaged her brain be more than he can handle? She’s not the same woman that she was when he last saw her, and that alone causes Cam to second-guess his ability to care for his family.
Marty hasn’t had much luck with men lately. She’s the only one of her friendship group to not have a husband or a long-term boyfriend, something that is starting to wear a bit thin with her. That doesn't mean that Marty will settle for second best. She’s after her Mr Right. Her upcoming holiday will be the perfect opportunity to find some love, and she’s hoping for a little bedroom action at the same time.
When Marty intervenes to stop Penny’s abusive home care nurse, her and Cam’s worlds are destined to collide, but at what cost? Can they both survive what life throws at them and remain friends, or could they be more?
About the Author
Vicki was born in Orange, NSW. When she was two years old her family moved to Dapto, a southern suburb of Wollongong. She was kicked out of pre-school at the age of four (for reasons that she will keep to herself).
When she was sixteen she moved with her parents and two sisters (Vicki is the typically misunderstood middle child) to the ACT where, ironically she studied Child Care so she could work in a pre-school.
Now, at the age of 45 she still lives in Canberra with her husband and three adult/teenage children.
Vicki works full time (not in the child care industry!) and is an avid baker. She spends her time taxiing her kids around and baking cup cakes for all the kids who constantly fill the house.
Vicki has always enjoyed writing and is now taking the time to put her stories to print.
